Own a piece of history and get a bonus of having arguably the best corner lot in all of Downtown Oroville. Currently being used as a clothing store but the possibilities are nearly endless, especially when you consider the adjacent space that would make a great office rental. With the burgeoning renaissance currently taking place in the downtown area (there are new business popping up all over) this may be your last gasp at trying to grab a building at such a reasonable price. If it was good enough for Thomas Edison to occupy it should be good enough for nearly anyone to occupy. But, if you don't want to occupy it for your own venture, the current business owner would like to continue to rent it. Lot's of history in this building for not a lot of money. Note that the actual "year built" is estimated based on the fact that the Edison Company occupied the building from 1879-1881.
I know you have seen how ridiculous the prices of new and used homes are right now. The way things are going you are going to have to be a millionaire to buy a home pretty soon. The shortage of homes on the market and the huge demand that panicked buyers are creating is making your chances of finding a reasonably price home about as rare as spotting a Vaquita in the Gulf of California (look it up). This 1+ acre parcel just might be the solution to avoiding all the bidding wars for homes. Nestled in the lower portion of Oroville's preferred East Foothills area, with the prestigious Grey Fox Winery just around the corner, this gently sloping, oak tree studded parcel has something most other parcels of this size lack in this area of Oroville: The availability of power (which is near the front corner of the property), public water and public sewer! To make matters even better, the parcel is accessed by a paved road and the quality of the homes in the immediate vicinity make it very easy to justify building a higher end custom home. Speaking of access, even with the rural country location you are only about 10-15 minutes from the downtown and uptown Oroville shopping districts, with Oroville Hospital being even closer than that. Also, be sure to leave plenty of room when you build that dream home for your watercraft and/or RV as the "Puddle" formerly known as Lake Oroville is only about a 10 minute drive (or 5 minute drive if my mother-in-law is driving) from the property. Don't think too long about what a great opportunity this is because there are a gazillion other people seeing this property online too and you wouldn't want to get caught up in a bidding war, would you?
