Off Grid Living in Texas!
HUDSPETH LOT – 10.30 ACRES IN HUDSPETH COUNTY, TEXAS
Home to only 3,500 people, as well as the state’s only adobe courthouse, Hudspeth County still feels like the wild west. The County contains approximately 4,500 square miles of nearly undeveloped land, including the Guadalupe Mountains National Park.
This particular lot is surrounded by wide open space, perfect for someone looking for solitude and seclusion. There are no known restrictions on the parcel so it could be used for a variety of potential uses, such as off-grid living, camping or adventure sports.
“Real estate cannot be lost or stolen, nor can it be carried away. Purchased with common sense, paid for in full, and managed with reasonable care, it is about the safest investment in the world.” – Franklin D. Roosevelt, U.S. president
About 2.5 hours from the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, the lot is a good stopping point for outdoor enthusiasts. According the National Park Service, Guadalupe Mountains National Park “protects the world’s most extensive Permian fossil reef, the four highest peaks in Texas, an environmentally diverse collection of flora and fauna, and the stories of lives shaped through conflict, cooperation and survival.”
The lot is also about 1 hour and 45 minutes to El Paso, with all of the amenities of a major city. Yet the lot itself is far from everyone and situated in a great climate with an average of 292 sunny days a year!
“Ninety percent of all millionaires become so through owning real estate. More money has been made in real estate than in all industrial investments combined. The wise young man or wage earner of today invests his money in real estate.” – Andrew Carnegie, billionaire industrialist
We haven’t been to the lot ourselves, but based on satellite images, it does not appear to have access via a county maintained road – and you will probably need a 4×4 to access it. Because the lot is not accessible via a county road, we are offering it a great price for hunters, hikers, campers or RV-owners.
PURCHASE PRICE $2400 + $199 DOCUMENT FEE
We accept personal checks, cashier’s checks, money orders and Zelle.
