Among the rolling hills of the Mt. Diablo mountain range out of Livermore, is a spacious 530 Acre property that is both dramatic in appearance, and restful in atmosphere.  Located at 51000 Mines Road, Livermore, it can become the mountain retreat that others drive hours to find in California's eastern foothills.  

A distinctive rustic shared gate opens onto the road to the property, and is just a touch of the charm to be seen.  

The road leads to the central living space of the land,  Overlooking a serene canyon, and settled in among a tree filled hillside, it is immediately inviting.  

This land was originally the home of a member-only hunt club. The long building seen here was the space for sleeping quarters and dining and kitchen space that was supplemented by the large outdoor barbeque seen above.  

The outdoor barbecue can be the center of many parties and get together with friends and family.  

Other options to consider for the use of the property could be for a  motorcycle club, a church camp, a SAR rescue compound, or whatever additional needs could be developed.  

As can be seen here, the original use of this space was as a bunk house, and it still can continue in that manner, if the projected use dictates.  However, this vast amount of floorspace can also be converted to a very generous personal living space designed to suit one's own distinctive usage.  

A reverse perspective reveals the size of the space available and the multiple side windows that let in both light and views of the outside land and greenery.

At the far end of the building is this generously sized kitchen which offers comfortable preparation and working space, plenty of storage, and a set of large picture windows, and doors that invite in the sunny exterior light.

Opposite the kitchen is space for long dining tables to accommodate a good sized breakfast service if needed, or be developed into a comfortable living space. 

Just outside the central building is this bathroom compound with toilets and showers.  The adjacent propane tank is currently leased.  There is year round water from a storage tank, a stream and private fishing pond.  

The peacefulness of the surrounding land, and its varied and engaging appeal is seen here, and in the separate views below.   

The softly rolling hills highlight the contrast and beauty of the green grasses and tall trees below.  This is a location can be enjoyed year round as it offers seasonal colors and its serenity.

This closing view looks down on the complex which can be seen at the center top of the scene.  If you would like to live in, and enjoy a delightful retreat space, please contact me with your questions and interest.  I can be reached at (510) 517-6280.  The property is being offered for sale for $1,400,000.
