5.26 acre Lot 10 of Hornet Ridge Estates is a view building site in the Ridge Country between the West Mountains and Cuddy Mountains in the heart of the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area. The location captures sweeping views of the two mountain ranges, timbered slopes and draws, rim rock bluffs and the picturesque farm and ranch lands of the Council Valley. The town of Council can be seen in the distance. Millions of acres of National Forest, State of Idaho and BLM lands wrap the Ridge country on three sides reaching for miles in all directions and all the way to Hell’s Canyon on the Snake River. Mountain streams, springs, lakes and reservoirs throughout the area contribute to rich riparian corridors and an incredible variety of wildlife from song birds to big game. The distinct four season climate is year around living at its best. From gardening to skiing, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, snowmobiling and 4 wheeling, the territory offers magnificent diversity.
Council is the Adams County Seat, a small Idaho town with a big sense of community. Just a 10 minute drive south of Hornet Ridge Estates, Council, the Adams County Seat, offers a variety of shops and services, professional and medical, K-12 schools and a small airport. The mountain resort town of McCall on Payette Lake, popular for summer and winter outdoor recreation, boutique shops and fine restaurants is just 30 miles north. Boise International Airport is 122 miles southeast of Council via state and interstate highways.
Lot 10 is primarily a very gently sloping parcel comprised of good tillable soils, a brushy pocket of bitter-brush, choke cherry and hawthorn and some steeper rocky back slope. The portion with tillable soils is an excellent site to build a custom crafted home and has all the best view advantage. Property is served by buried power and phone, a county maintained gravel road and pre-approved for septic. Protective covenants apply.
