159.2 Acres, Merchantable Timber, Vineyard Potential

This property consists of two adjoining parcels: 156.5 acres with a Tudor style home, mature timberland, and open fields; and 2.7 acres along Butler Road zoned as buildable. The property has a gently sloping southern exposure in the foothills of the Coast Range on the west side of the Willamette Valley. It is a few miles west of the Eugene airport and the city of Eugene.

The homesite has a 3444 square foot Tudor style home which sits at the top of the property and has exceptional views of Fern Ridge Lake, the forested hills of the Coast Range and Cascades, and south end of the Willamette Valley. There is a 2 story shop that is completely finished inside and with a half bath, a large terraced vegetable and flower garden with a pergola, greenhouse, and garden tool storage building, and an Asian garden still under construction.

About half the land is covered by a mature forest of primarily Douglas fir with some Ponderosa pine and other species. The timber represents a large part of the value of the property. The middle of the property is a large open field with scattered oak trees, a pond, artesian springs, and seasonal streams lined by hardwoods such as alder and elm. There is abundant wildlife, both resident on the property and seasonally migrating through it. Riding and hiking trails have been maintained through the forest.

Location: Rural…yet very close to town.

This property is conveniently located just 10 miles from the Eugene Airport, 16 miles from the University of Oregon and central Eugene. It is just a 10 minute drive to small town shopping and dining in Veneta. It is 30 miles to Oregon State University in Corvallis, an hour to Salem, and 2 hours to Portland. Florence on the Oregon Coast is only an hour away. The Cascade Mountains are an hour and a half away for fishing, hiking, or skiing.

The property is situated along the eastern slopes of the Coast Range and has soils and terrain that are excellent for a vineyard of Pinot Noir, the varietal for which Oregon is famous. The property is mile from Territorial Highway, which, along with state highway 99W, is sometimes referred to as the Western Oregon Wine Trail since the vast majority of Willamette Valley wineries are located near these highways. The property has an outstanding location and exquisite views for a possible boutique-type tasting room.

In summer, the tall firs around the house afford shade and cooler late afternoons. In the winter occasions when the valley has a layer of fog, the house, at an elevation of 750 ft., frequently stays in the bright sunshine above the fog. On the few occasions of snowfall, there will be a little more snow here than on the valley floor. Watch a beautiful array of Oregon weather patterns across the hills and valley year round.

Home:

The home sits at the top of the gentle south facing slope and offers phenomenal views of nearby Fern Ridge Lake, the south Willamette Valley, the Coast Range and the Cascades.

Heating and Air Conditioning in the home is provided by a high efficiency geothermal heat pump system. A thermostat controlled pellet stove can augment heating during the occasional cold spells or for a cozy atmosphere. The sunroom adds passive solar heating on those cool and sunny days. A whole house fan, and exhaust fan in the attic help cool the house in summer. Most rooms have ceiling fans.

Garden Areas:

Very beautifully and efficiently designed the rows are terraced with raised beds made from concrete retaining walls to maximize heat and access on the slope. Each of the beds has convenient multiple irrigation lines on timers. The garden is surrounded by 8ft wildlife fencing.

The structure of the project is in place with plumbing for a pond and stream, an 8ft concrete composite Hardi-Board fence that simulates a stucco wall, and pathways around the garden. There are manicured Japanese black pine, Japanese maples, bamboos, azaleas, rhododendrons, grasses, and tea camellias. An entry gate and attached wooden fence are under construction. Timers automatically control electrical outlets for lighting and fountains, and irrigation sprinklers.

Acreage Description:

Gentle sloping southern exposure hillside to a level valley with springs, a year round pond, great riding and hiking trails through the woods, and it’s own oak savanna mini valley. Approximately 80 acres in evergreen trees and additional acreage with hardwoods like alder and elm. The balance of the land. is open and partially open with rolling hillside pastures. There are a few fruit trees in the field: pears, cherries, apples, plums, and also black walnut and hazelnut trees. Wild blackberries are abundant for fresh eating and making great pies and jams in the summer.

Timber:

The timber represents a substantial portion of the value of this property. There are many options for the managing the timber, from keeping the forest as is to be enjoyed for the trails, wildlife, wild vegetation, and peaceful surroundings – allowing the trees to continue to grow; or harvesting all trees by clearcutting them, or anything in between.

The fir trees are the prime age and condition for harvest. Additionally, there is commercial value in the other evergreen species and hardwoods. Clearcutting would extract the maximum value of the timber. The trees also could be thinned to extract some value while keeping many of the trees as forest. The Sellers would be open to harvesting some or all of the trees themselves and reducing the price of the property accordingly.

We have a timber cruise on file dated April 13th, 2015 confirming 2,548 MBF of timber. In summer of 2016, a pole company confirmed approximately 15% is in pole quality timber.
