A rare and massive expanse of undeveloped Bay Area land is on the market for $72 million.
Stretching across 80 square miles of oak-studded hills and grassy meadows, the N3 Cattle Company is the largest land offering in California and bigger than the city of San Francisco.
An hour from San Francisco and San Jose, the untouched haven straddles Alameda and Santa Clara counties, with its eastern edge spilling over into the San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties. The majority of the land is in the East Bay.
"It's wild, unspoiled wilderness," says listing agent Todd Renfrew of California Outdoor Properties. "It looks like it did 2,000 years ago when it was inhabited by American Indians. It just hasn't changed."
The ranch has been in the hands of the same family for 85 years and they've operated it as a cattle ranch.
"Two daughters have run the ranch for 20 years," says Renfrew. "It's a big responsibility. It's time for the next generation of people."
The land is zoned for agricultural use and the property features facilities for raising cattle, including five corrals, employee housing, multiple sheds, hay barns, two workshops and accommodations for up to 3,000 cattle (1,500 pairs of a mother and her calf).
A four-bedroom main residence is basic and was built in the 1960s. There are also 14 hunting cabins as the ranch once ran a successful hunting operation...

A massive ranch property in Northern California has hit the market for $74 million, making the the Mountain of Beverly Hillsí 157 acres still on the market look like a putting green.
But unlike that development site, this 50,500-acre property is an active working ranch owned by N3 Cattle Company, according to the Wall Street Journal. It spans four counties and about 40 miles east of Oakland, and is home to 1,500 cows and 200 miles of private roads and trails, according to the report.
Listing agent Todd Renfrew of California Outdoor Properties claims itís the largest piece of land for sale in California.
It dwarfs even the 12,000-acre Tejon Ranch where the 19,000-home Centennial master-planned community is in the works.
The main compound on the N3 property has a four-bedroom home and there are four cabins for workers.
The terrain includes canyons, woodlands, meadows, and watersheds. Its highest point reaches 4,000 feet. Hunting cabins are spread throughout the ranch.
The property has been owned by the Naftzger family for 85 years and is being sold by two sisters, Sandra Naftgzger and Natalie Naftzger Davis, who have operated N3 Cattle Company for the last two decades...
