80 acres of Hunting Ranch Land about 1 hour drive from San Jose, CA
Reduced to only $125,000 !!!
(actually I've reduced it before I've learnt that you can legally hunt on the property now, bring a trailer and stay there, and build under 120 square feet structures/hunting cabins without any permits or fees. I should probably increase the price and start advertising on hunting web sites :-)
Are you concerned that paper money is going to loose value with massive injections of trillions of new dollars into the economy?
Do you want to own an investment you can also enjoy? Wouldn't it be nice to own 80 Acres of Hunting Ranchland just a short drive from a major metropolitan area where sub-acre lots sell for a million dollars? Or you just don't want to waste time driving for hours to hunt in far away places (which often also cost a fortune to buy)?
Here is something you may want to consider:
80 Acres (3.5 million square feet!) of beautiful hills with breath taking views, with over 1300 feet of highway frontage (San Antonio Valley Road - Designated Scenic Highway 130). Property is on both sides of the highway which cuts through the property. Electric power lines, telephone lines and seasonal river are also on the property. Excellent cellphone reception (Verizon). The property has Highway 130 frontage. There is also a dirt road on part of the property.
Enjoy hunting, target shooting, hiking, horseback riding, driving Jeeps, dirt bikes, ATVs etc or whatever else you like doing. Excellent weekend get away - plenty of privacy.
Bring your trailer and stay there (legally for up to 14 nights/2 weeks per year - you are the only one who is counting, so make sure you count accurately).
The land is currently designated as agricultural under Williamson act which expires in 6 years (end of 2019) - after that no agricultural building restrictions - build your dream home. The land is also buildable now (barns, house etc) but ONLY if used for agriculture - check your plans with Santa Clara County office for more information and conditions.
You can legally build structure(s) which are less than 120 square feet, for which there is no permit or fees required. E.g. build your hunting cabin!
Could be a place to raise lamas, alpacas, goats, horses, cows or other animals.
Or wait 6 years and build whatever you want/ use the property as permitted by zoning ordinance. Property is Zoned AR-sr (and will be zoned the same after Williamson Act expires), here are the possibilities of things you can build after it expires. See Table 2.20-2 and look for AR (and -sr below). In tables "R" means allowed by "Right" without any applications or permits.
The neighbors use their properties in a variety of ways - some live year-round and drive to work to San Jose, some have weekend trailers or houses, some graze animals and others just ride horses or off-road vehicles. In any case you get plenty of privacy and unless you know where to find your neighbors, all you see around is hundreds of acres of a wild and pristine land.
Unlike many hills in the Bay Area which turn into yellow desert-like views during the summer, this area is quite green all year long (the pictures on the Views From the Hilltop tab above were taken during the summer).
In a straight line the property is only about 20 miles from Downtown San Jose. I timed the property to be 1h and 10 minutes from downtown San Jose 87/280 intersection (31 miles actual driving distance), or 1h from East San Jose. This is driving fast in a small car so your time may vary. If you are not familiar with the area please drive slowly and carefully as the road is winding and narrow in places. But there are very few cars on this road at any time so no traffic jams :-)
The property is priced at $125,000 instead of many millions for two reasons - first you need to enjoy driving on a scenic winding mountain road to get there, second it's not a flat parcel you can subdivide into several hundred lots and build a new subdivision on it. But if you love hunting and shooting, or just love land, love outdoors and have a drop of wild blood to try something fun for a very reasonable price, it could be for you.
The Santa Clara County records list this parcel as San Jose, CA 95140 address.
The parcel number is APN 070-10-052.

On the map below, feel free to click on the Satellite view, zoom in and out and move around the map. The red marker is the actual location of the property.
Google Street View works for this area, so you can drag the "Little person" showing in Google maps into the highway 130 and look around the area.
How to get there
If you plan to go there, please make sure that you print this page and take it with you.
You can get there driving highway 130 - e.g. from highway 680 take Alum Rock/130 exit, turn right at Mt. Hamilton, keep driving (130 leads all the way to the property). Once you are at the top of Mount Hamilton (passing the Observatory) make a note of the mileage and drive 6.9 miles - drive down until you cross a small bridge, after bridge cross cattle guard (pipes across the highway), look for the gate on the left at 36000 San Antonio Valley Road, which is is 6.9 miles (about 15 min) from the top. 36000 is a neighbors gate, from which you can also enter my property. If you continue East on 130 you drive into my property. Following a cement barrier on the right, there is a fresh access path and a number 36360. This is a second place to stop and access the property.
If you use a GPS latitude of that point is approximately 37.356649933447606, longitude -121.56769037246704.
Here is the address for cutting and pasting into Google maps or in your GPS to find the route or driving distance to the property, use it exactly as below:
36360 San Antonio Valley Road, Mt Hamilton, 95140 CA
Please note that Google map addresses are very inaccurate in this area, they are off (show to the left/West of the real location) by several hundred yards. So once in the area, ignore Google and ignore your GPS, look for the numbers 36000 and 36360.
You can park at the gate numbered 36000 and explore the left/North side. The dirt road behind the gate splits at a fork, you need to turns right, where the dirt road enters my property and goes up the hill. Make sure that when going up that hill you see and walk (to the left) an area recently cleared by a bulldozer. Next, come back to the car and start driving East.
When you continue to drive (or walk) East from the gate 36000 on the San Antonio Road (highway 130), my property starts after a small pond on the right side and extends for over 1300 feet up to a sharp right turn. Right behind the turn there is a gate 37370 - another neighbor's property. See the second map (photocopy) below for the shaded rectangle which corresponds to the property. Property boundaries also show in Google maps when in the street view.
About half way through my property, after a cement barrier on the right, there is a path cleared by a bulldozer which goes south (to the right side) with a No Trespassing sign and a number 36360 sign.
You can park at the cleared path at 36360 to explore the right/South side. The cleared path leads to the highest peak on the property which is about in a middle of the south side and gives a good view of the area.
But you do not have a permission to drive vehicles on the property (off highway) nor walk/hike it without contacting me first and getting a permission to walk. But you are welcome to see it from the highway at any time and without contacting me.
