Compton CA Horse Property - Los Angeles Area Horse Property Series
Compton is one of the oldest Los Angeles area cities to incorporate, in fact, the 8th city to incorporate, in 1889. Named after the man who contributed the land for Compton, Griffith D. Compton, the city of Compton came to exist on condition that a certain amount of acreage always be zoned for agricultural land and equestrian horse property in Compton.
Richland Farms was established in 1888 - a year before Compton and its horse property - and the deed is said to remain valid indefinitely. Of course, with the passage of more than 130 years at this point, never say never! Still, Richland Farms is home to the "Compton Junior Posse" children's charity, which keeps kids off streets and gives them an opportunity to be on horses.
Compton's horse property area is bounded by the 91, 710 and 110 freeways. Some horse property areas of Compton may or may not be contiguous, or touching each other.
Compton horse property remains relatively - in fact, incredibly - affordable. A short sale on Caldwell street, as of the October 3rd date of this blog post, has been on the market since August 25, listed at an asking price of $195,000 and still showing as an active listing. It is an 18,000+ sq ft lot, with plenty of room to expand the current 2-bedroom home and still have room for your horses. Search more Compton horse property at www.SandToSeaProperties.com.
As of the last official count in 2008, 433 horses had their homes in Compton's horse property "ranches" or "ranchettes." Lot sizes: Compton horse property parcels tend to range between 1/4 acre to 2 acres. Zoning and use questions are part of a buyer's inspection and diligence in buying a horse property. Tammy has looked into this question in many areas and may help you in your gathering of intelligence as you make your decisions in regards to horse property. Remember, as a real estate client, final decisions are yours; your agent can help, guide and advise you; decisions are yours to make, and we support you in that.
