The Cheapest House For Sale in Orange County - What You Get For The Price of a New Truck

As a follow up to the Most Expensive Home For Sale in Orange County, we wanted to also share The Cheapest House (not a condo or mobile home) for sale in Orange County. Thought OC was nothing but tract homes and gated communities? Not here! You literally will have zero neighbors other than the squirrels, coyotes, and rattlesnakes. This 1 Bedroom 700sqft house is 5 miles down a dirt road in the middle of Trabuco Canyon.
Sound interesting? Always thought of opening up your own moonshine still? Not so fast there Jed Clampet, the National Forest has special use restrictions on this home. First and foremost, you MUST have a primary residence elsewhere. In other words, they don't want you making this your main home and starting a new career in the extraction of Trabuco Tea.

How does that work? How can they enforce it? The catch is the house is on leased land and carries a use restriction for use as a temporary shelter for hikers, fisherman, and other nature users.

Unique property features include:

Water and Propane tank
Solar Power
Next to a seasonal stream
Hiking distance to Holy Jim Falls
Showings arranged with Local Fire Marshall

If you're interested in seeing the home, you'll need to make sure you have a vehicle suitable for off road use as the driveway is literally a bumpy 5 mile dirt road.

Hello Dude,

Nice post about the cheapest house for sale in orange country. It is very informative for all. This popular construction of renting out their property in the holiday season makes their dream of owning a second home abroad affordable. Thanks a lot.....

You can buy some home or properties here with a lower price, so nice for some simple things. Like a vacation home, or for some agricultural purposes too.
