145 PRIME ACRES FOR SALE ABOVE SAN PEDRO VALLEY PARK

Riptide reader Kevin M. reports: "Private land for sale (145 acres, $7.5 million) in the back of Linda Mar above San Pedro Valley Park. On zillow.com since early August. Hopefully some open-space group will buy this so we won’t have to look up Linda Mar Boulevard and see monster homes looming over the back of the valley."
 
Update from Kevin M. on December 17, 2017: "Looks like this property, which was off Zillow for a while (removed 11/3), is back again (reposted 12/15) with the price reduced from $7.5M ($52K an acre) to a priced-to-move deal at $2,999,999 ($21K an acre)."
