Sitting in the middle of the magnificent Black Hills community is a silent gem of 150 acres just waiting to be developed in someone's little slice of heaven or a developers gold mine. The Pittman Development land already has all utilities provided and all of the space needed to feel like you're away from the crowd, yet you're literally just a few minutes away from groceries, a dinner date or sports activity.
This 150 acre parcel is situated in a great location with development potential and beautiful, hilltop views. The property is only one minute north of Whitewood which sits on the I-90 exit along State Hwy 34, and provides easy, convenient access to several communities and attractions in each direction. Key advantages to this gem are its proximity to popular and practical locations in the area. The popular town of Sturgis (home to the annual Sturgis motorcycle Rally) is seven minutes south/west on I-90 and Spearfish, the home of Black Hills University, is a quick 10 minute drive east on I-90. Both Deadwood and Belle Fouche are within 20 minutes.
There are many other small towns scattered around, however, Rapid City, which is the second largest city in South Dakota, is an easy 25 minute drive southeast of the property, again, on I-90, and Rapid City's Regional Airport is within 45 minutes.
Located in the heart of South Dakota's “Black Hills' with perfect access for business or pleasure, this 150 acre property has a mix of open green pastures and Ponderosa pine settings mixed with just a few Oaks and Cottonwood, all on a rolling hills topography which makes it very attractive with private and beautiful hilltop views for potential residential development. There is good natural grass on 2/3s of the property with nice tree cover on the balance.
There are three hillside ponds and one deep well that provide good water for the whole property.
Having been owned by the Pittman family since 1949, Uncle Jean and Aunt Jeane raised their five strong sons in a family tradition of agriculture The Pittman diary provided the way of life for this western family and while the cows no longer are there to be milked, this location is a very convenient and beautiful opportunity to develop into many unique residential building sites or one unique dream hideaway to build a dream estate.
There is a mild four season climate. Many bikers say that they can ride, at some times,
twelve months out of the year due to its banana belt climate.
While there is adequate pasture and cover for 50-60 cattle, this property is likely at its highest and best use if converted to an upscale residential home development or gentleman's ranch or dream home estate.
The buildings that come with the property are older and in various stages of disrepair. There has been no value given to them and they are sold “As is where is” condition with no warranties implied or given. The 116 year old house is presumed to be unlivable in its current condition.
Two mobile homes along Pittman Road are to be sold or removed separate from (not included in) this sale. Seller will consider offers to purchase approximately 40 acres at the corner of Pittman Road and State Hwy 30 separately.

This property itself allows for activities including horseback riding, hiking, hunting, camping, mountain biking, shooting, privacy, and semi-seclusion. Virtually next door, The Black Hills of South Dakota, has a very healthy tourist industry because of its mild climate and user friendly outdoors full of national forest and grasslands available for public use.
