$12,295,000 / 2,174 Acres / New Listing
Special properties available for purchase tend to be few and far between. And then there is that very small handful of select properties so uniquely special they only come along once in a blue moon. The Deer Island Stock Ranch is just such a property and is being offered for the first time in nearly 70 years.
Purchased in the 1950s by a successful timber baron as a private hunting and fishing retreat and cattle operation, the ranch presents as a fabled history of a family's connection to a magnificent expanse of land through 5 generations. With the mighty Columbia River rolling along one border, and a slough meandering along another, this offering of nearly 2,200 acres consists of a mix of forest land, pasture land, year-round lakes, seasonal ponds, tide-controlled sloughs, an island and almost 6 miles of private shoreline. The simple truth is there is no place like the Deer Island Stock Ranch, anywhere.
Surrounded by unparalleled nature and beauty, the ranch is home to elk, deer, coyote, bald eagles, osprey, hawks, falcons, multiple species of ducks and geese, sandhill cranes, tundra and trumpeter swans and much more. There always seems to be a wildlife surprise around every corner. Ever changing with the seasons and ebb and flow of the Columbia, the landscape is equally dynamic and full of natural wonder.
Improvements and amenities include everything needed to comfortably operate the ranch as it has been in the past, or to take it in a new direction limited only by imagination. Features include...
Current income sources include...
Scappoose Industrial Airpark offers a 5,100' runway, perfect for private and charter planes, and is an easy 20-minute drive. Portland International Airport is less than an hour's drive.
The many sporting and recreation opportunities available on the ranch, along with those in nearby Portland, Mount Hood and the Oregon Coast, make this the ultimate playground for those who enjoy an active, outdoor lifestyle. The Deer Island Stock Ranch is a once-in-a-lifetime offering.
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!"
