Stunning Historic Ranch on 5 parcels of 45 acres 2 Hours from Los Angeles

Pioneertown, San Bernardino County, California

Welcome to Thunderbird Ranch, recently featured in Dwell Magazine, a meticulously remodeled Off Grid historic ranch home on 5 separate parcels totaling 45 acres just outside of the legendary Pioneertown, only a 2 hour drive from Los Angeles. In Burns Canyon the genuine romance of the Old West is still alive. Historic Rattlesnake Canyon and springs just beyond is where one of the last open cattle ranges of the West exists and the old timer cowboys still drive the cattle through the hills. Get into your saddle and join the drive. Designed by a film director and his artist partner with an acute eye for detail over the course of nearly 8 years, every square inch of the home is hand-fabricated and custom made with no expense spared. This 5 parcel property is an extremely lucrative proposition- any of the individual parcels could be easily sold or developed, in addition to remaining as a single sprawling ranch. Thunderbird Ranch is just outside of the legendary Pioneertown, California, the Western film town built by Roy Rogers and Gene Autry. Offering complete privacy and serenity with undisturbed views of the valleys and foothills in every direction. Located where the High Desert meets the Alpine, the property is home to thousands of some of the world’s largest and oldest Joshua Trees (even more majestic than the National Park), ancient Juniper, Pinon, and a multitude of native flora and fauna. Being at a slightly higher elevation than Pioneertown, this locale enjoys a more temperate climate and higher levels of precipitation. The property opens onto thousands of acres of protected wildlands, National Forest and BLM- simply hop on your horse or bike and you’re immediately in some of the most pristine and stunning undiscovered landscapes that Southern California has to offer. Completely self sufficient and Off Grid, Thunderbird Ranch is powered by a large cutting edge 7Kw solar system with lithium battery bank that leaves you wanting for nothing, not to mention never paying a utility bill again. A high volume, extremely plentiful 450’ deep water well is operated automatically by a dedicated solar array and a brand new top of the line Grundfos variable well pump with associated plumbing and wiring installed just last year. With a history as an active horse property, the lower 5 acres and house are fenced with two separate corrals, a round pen and a run-in stall, while the two middle 10 acre parcels are open as a wildlife corridor, and the two upper 10 acre parcels are fenced. Just a few miles down the back road is the iconic Pioneertown where Roy Rogers and Gene Autry filmed their westerns. The nightlight is alive and hopping at the newly re-opened historic Red Dog Saloon and the iconic Pappy and Harriets- the roadhouse that was named by Billboard Magazine as one of the Top Ten live music venues in the country, where the likes of Paul McCartney, Robert Plant, Patti Smith, and Lucinda Williams have all played. The uber trendy little town has been the focus recently of feature articles in New York Times, LA Times, Sunset Magazine, Architectural Digest, to name just a few. A few miles farther and you’ll find the amenities of Yucca Valley, the magnificent Joshua Tree National Park, and to the south Palm Springs, the mid-century modern haven with its museums, galleries, and highly rated restaurants. Head up the hill from the ranch in the other direction and you’ll connect to the infamous “back road to Big Bear” where an epic voyage will take you through historic gold claims and the remnants of mining towns, all the way up to Big Bear lake where the summer boating and swimming are just as fun as the winter skiing and snow sports. Thunderbird Ranch has no neighbors for miles and is just far enough away while being just close enough to the action. It is separated from the rest of the desert and by a 5 mile private dirt road maintained by the community’s dedicated machinery. If you crave a home just off a paved road surrounded by Airbnbs, this is NOT the place for you. This property offers the discerning buyer a unique confluence of quality, sophistication and elegance at the edge of the wilderness for the true Renaissance Man, Woman or family. Leave the madness of the city behind and start your dream life now.
