This beautiful 879+/- acre ranch bordering Carmel Valley Road, for easy access, is within 30 minutes of the Carmel Village. The terrain is comprised of open rolling valley oak grassland, dense covered blue oak woodlands that include large pine trees and live oaks. Most of the landscape is rolling hills with views of the Arroyo Seco Valley and two seasonal creeks running through the property. The ranch is mainly level next to Carmel Valley Road and runs to the west & increases in elevation.
A family-owned cattle ranch for the last three generations, the Reed Ranch has been a family retreat, a hunting compound being adjacent to thousands of acres of land owned by BLM, and the ranch has the potential for a fully developed family legacy, a compound of 11 mini ranches with the already existing 11 legal parcels.
There is an abundance of water on the ranch. The lower part of the ranch is supplied by a domestic well with a 5000-gallon water tank and two troughs. The seasonal creeks usually have water year-round and the upper part of the ranch has 2 springs and several ponds. One spring is developed with a holding tank and water trough.
The ranch will typically run 25 to 35 cow/calf pairs year-round. There is a wide variety and an abundance of wildlife on the ranch, which includes deer, wild pigs, quail, bobcats, coyotes, and wild turkeys. The property is adjacent to thousands of acres of BLM Land making it a magnificent recreational retreat.
The facilities include an old redwood cabin that needs to be remodeled and a set of cattle corrals. Both are just off of Carmel Valley Road and have water and power to them. The ranch has a good border fence and is cross fenced separating the lower part of the ranch from the upper part.
