Set at the base of Pilot Peak on the Nevada-Utah border, this property is ideal for escaping the city and enjoying the freedom of remote land.
The 8.66 acre parcel is in the gorgeous Pilot Valley, with outstanding 360-degree mountain and valley views. Herds of deer, elk, antelope, and wild horses roam throughout this area. Pilot Peak is a beautiful 10,700-foot mountain and is one of the nation’s “ultra” peaks.
Located only 14 miles from the town of Montello and just south of the JLJ Ranch subdivision, the area has a sense of community, and neighbors watch out for each other. But the area is sparsely settled and surrounded by public land, so you’ll feel like you have your own private retreat.
Zoned for Agricultural-Residential and accessible by road, this property is wonderfully versatile.
- Camp on it and use it as a base for hunting, rockhounding, and exploring.
- Build a seasonal cabin or year-round home. Power runs along the road just a few hundred feet from the property.
- Keep animals or farm. Less than a mile west is the Bar O Ranch, a 200+ acre operating ranch.
Water appears to be plentiful in the area and wells are not deep; alternately, there is a bulk water station in town. This upslope location drains well and avoids concerns of flooding.
Access is available from two directions. Pilot Road runs north to Highway 233 and Montello, and south to I-80 and West Wendover. You have access to Elko, Salt Lake City, Twin Falls, and the Bonneville Salt Flats, all within just a few hours’ drive. The Tecoma volunteer fire station is located nearby at Pilot Road and First Street.
Located between Elko, Nevada, and Salt Lake City, Utah in Elko County.
