Located along the Western Oregon Wine Trail, this property offers two adjoining parcels, 156.5 acres with the home, timberland and pastures with vineyard potential, and a 2.7 acre build-able lot. There is excellent terrain and soils for a south facing vineyard and an exquisite location and views for a boutique-type tasting room. In addition to year-round springs, riding and hiking trails, seasonal creek and year-round pond, the property showcases a custom Tudor-style home with exceptional valley and lake views.
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 downtown Eugene, and 30 miles from Oregon State University in Corvallis. Just a 10 minute drive to small town shopping and dining in Veneta. It is only an hour away from Florence on the Oregon Coast and an hour and a half from fishing, hiking, or skiing in the Cascade Mountains.
The home sits at the top of the gentle south facing slope that offers phenomenal views of Fern Ridge Lake, the Willamette Valley and the Coastal and Cascade mountains beyond. The lake fills with sailing regattas throughout the summer, you can watch multiple firework shows on the 4th of July, and witness a beautiful array of Oregon weather patterns.
In summer, the tall firs around the house afford shade and cooler late afternoons. In the winter when the valley has a layer of fog, this property often stays in the bright sunshine above the fog line. – On the rare occasions of snowfall, you’ll experience a little more snow here than on the valley floor
Acreage Description: Level and gentle sloping land with springs, a year round pond, great riding and hiking trails, and it’s own mini valley. Approximately 100 acres in trees and timber with the balance in open and partially open, rolling, hillside pastures.
Home: Our Sellers thoughtfully created the floor plan after studying many model homes in the California Bay Area, pulling the best features of comfort and convenience from each. Solid red oak woodwork throughout including rich raised panel doors, cabinets, and floors The master bedroom and main living areas are all on the main floor and this is one of the few homes in the Eugene area that offers an elevator. The flow allows for the living areas at one end of the main floor with utility areas and garage at the other. A great focal point of the home is the sunroom that connects to the living room and is perched on the south side of the home at the back patio. This room sends an abundance of light into the living room. The living room features a soaring ceiling, perfect for an Oregon size Christmas Tree.
