You can buy this Nevada town for $8 million

By

There’s a desert town in Nevada that could be yours for a cool $8 million.

Cal Nev Ari is a 640-acre town located roughly 60 miles south of Las Vegas. About 350 people live there.

The sale includes the town’s facilities — a casino, restaurant, motel, convenience store and a mobile home park — plus an additional 520 acres that remain undeveloped.

“It’s a very large tract of contiguous land, which is rare in Nevada since the federal government owns 80% of land in the state,” explained listing agent Fred Marik.

There’s been interest from buyers with different business plans, including a marijuana resort, residential buildings and a retirement community.

Pilots might also be interested in the town. It was an abandoned World War II airstrip for General George Patton and currently has a residential airpark with a dirt runway. Many of the homes have airplane hangars.

“People can walk out of their living room and fly down the taxiway and take off,” said Marik.

The city was founded in 1965 by Nancy Kidwell with her first husband. The 78-year-old founder owns all the businesses in the town and employs around 27 people.

The sale comes with a few stipulations: The airport must remain in business as Kidwell Airport and the town must keep its name for 30 years.

“She is really invested in the town. She built it from scratch with her hands,” said Marik.

Kidwell originally put the town up for sale in 2010 for $17 million, but it went off the market after the Great Recession devastated the state’s real estate market. It went back on the market for the lower asking price in February.

The Borg alcove prop, which was a device used by Borg drones for regeneration in the TV series, is included with the property as reported by Sky News Real Estate’s Prue Miller. The asking price for the home is $US6.9 million.

The 48-year-old confirmed she used the same prop on the show after a fan asked her about it on Twitter.

Located in the living area, the alcove is placed alongside the pool table, full bar and fireplace, perhaps making it a great setting for a Star Trek movie marathon.

The impressive cinema room seats 20 on plush sofas, providing that next-level comfort.

The 0.5 hectare French-inspired property features an six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a large kitchen and an office.

The grounds surrounding the home are particularly impressive. An oak tree in the front garden is complemented by well-maintained lawns.

The pool area also provides plenty of shade for those warmer months of the year.

Since buying the Encino property in 2000 for $US4 million, the home has been renovated several times.

If sold at asking price, the German-born actress will make close to a $US3 million profit; well above the $1.249 million median price of a home in Encino, California.
