$3,250,000 / 3,531 Acres / Available
The Cottonwood Creek Ranch is a hunter's dream located just minutes from the famous town of Walla Walla, WA. You can be on a ridge spotting trophy elk one hour and be drinking wine in Walla Walla the next. The 3,431 +/- acres includes tillable farmland acres, rangeland, and dense forests. It's a truly unique property and a rare opportunity.
The ranch is located in the Walla Walla Hunting Unit that is nationally known as a trophy unit. The property qualifies for four landowner preference (LOP) tags (buyer to confirm with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife). On the ranch you find trophy elk, mule deer, whitetail, coyotes, turkey, grouse, and chukar. Trophy-quality game surrounds you all over this property. Cottonwood Creek flows through the property with a native population of steelhead as well.
Agricultural opportunities include grazing. dryland farm ground, and timber. The grazing tenant runs 150-165 pairs from April through late November on the property. The stocking rate can improve significantly with improvements to the rangeland. The dryland farm ground includes 368.66 FSA-156EZ acres in an area known for 95-125 bushel/acre production. Farmland is currently grazed with rangeland. There are approximately 1,050 +/- acres of timberland on the property. The area is known to be the best growing conditions for timber in Eastern Oregon. Timber companies have expressed interest in purchasing the top 1,030 +/- acres which is a potential opportunity to lower the purchase price of the remaining property significantly.
This property is one of very few that is contiguous from the valley below to the timbered mountains above. This is great for wildlife and may provide an opportunity for conservation outcomes.
A building site is located at the West end of the property along the creek. An abandoned home lies on the property that may be salvageable. The home site is in an area that offers privacy and protection from the weather.

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
