$79,000 / 80 Acres / Sold
This 80-acre parcel is the perfect place for a lucky individual to build a beautiful retreat or home in one of the vastest and beautiful open country regions Oregon has to offer. Located just outside the historic town of Christmas Valley, what this property lacks in amenities is made up in some of the most culturally rich history as well as unique geological formations in the state of Oregon.
Located about 30 minutes north of Silver Lake and 30 minutes northwest of the town of Summer Lake this property is not a place where you're going to run into hordes of cell phone wielding millennials. What you will find in this vivid country are sparsely populated communities that have continued to keep living a lifestyle that has not changed much since the first Native Americans started using this land plus or minus 14,000 years ago. Besides a failed attempt to make Christmas Valley a bustling metropolis in the early '60s by the late real estate tycoon M. Penn Phillips the town has maintained an economical existence based primarily off agriculture and ranching, as well as hunters, scientists, archaeologist, writers, artist and recreationalists that flock to this country in the summer and winter months to calm the mind and take in all of the rim rock splendor the high desert can offer.
The Land is primarily comprised of a gently sloping grade to the south with a mix of grasses and brush that one would expect to find in this region of Oregon (Sagebrush, Rabbitbrush, desert flowers, etc...). To the south, there are everlasting views of mountain ranges and other geological features. The fauna includes Mule deer, Elk, Coyote, Cougar and a vast number of species of small fur-bearing critters and birds of prey. Just as of recently a well (100gpm), septic and power have been plumbed into the middle of the acreage where a home or shop could sit depending on county codes.
Amenities include a small medical clinic, grocery/gas station, a diner or two and endless opportunities to experience and explore some of the most unique country in the state by whatever means of transportation you see fit.
Dear Robert, I think you are one of the nicest people on the planet, and for sure the best realtor. Thank you for all your hard work, great advice, patience, and for sticking in there with me. You really went "above and beyond". The world is a better place with people like you in it and I feel really lucky to have crossed paths with you"

"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!"
