You know the recreated mining area of Knott’s Berry Farm? The faux rocks, mining carts on rusty tracks, and boarded up mine shafts with recorded wind noises? Well here is a real life place that looks just like it in Malibu…..really!
The MLS description says it all….
“Extremely Rare 1 bedroom, 1 bath Rock Cabin on 40 acres in the Malibu Hills. Property is bordered by State Land on three sides with a half mile dirt road to property. House was built in the 1940’s and needs major remodeling. Original owner believed there was a buried Spanish gold treasure in the large rock next to the house and spent many years digging three mine shafts to try to find it. It is unknown if he was successful. Amazing views in all directions from this very private property! There is an old fashion rock hand dug water well in the stream area under the trees. To view property, you can go up from Mulholland to the Cabin- please see aerial maps in photo section with detailed road maps to property. Dirt road to house is too over grown to drive and is only 6 to 10 feet wide in some sections. You will not see another property like this one ever again!”
I like the part about “it is unknown if he was successful.” By looking at the photos, I’m guessing he wasn’t. Which is really good news if you want to pick up where he left off!
If you are a fan of Discovery Channel’s Gold Rush Show….grab a pic,bring your crew, and start an argument. You’ll find gold in no time.
$579,000 with 544 sq.ft. on record.
