The views from the cabin on this large, 1.68~Acre parcel are absolutely incredible! The cabin is an "As-Is" fixer that hasn't been occupied in a very long time, but you can definitely see why this was the spot that was chosen to build it! It's so peaceful here as you look over the plateau at the Sprague River as it meanders through the lush valley of family farms and pasture land. This is an incredible opportunity to revitalize this cabin of days-gone-by and make it something special of your own! Owner is willing to carry financing with a reasonable down payment!

The owner may carry the note on this property with a reasonable down.
The property includes a fixer, Off-grid, "AS IS" cabin with a carport! No one has lived here for a very long time. It may have been a vacation getaway or hunting/fishing cabin at one time. The cabin has been grandfathered by the county and has been given a street address. With some work, you could fix this place up and make it just the way you like it! Sit out in the mornings with a cup of coffee or tea and soak in the incredible views of the valley, and the Sprague River meandering through the pastures and farmland below.
It is so quiet up here on the bluff, all you hear is the wind gently blowing through the trees and across the plateau, birds passing by overhead or a rare, but occasional neighbor driving by. It really is peaceful here. When you stand by the cabin, there is no doubt why so many years ago, this is the place that the owners at the time chose to build the cabin. The views are absolutely unparalleled.
The property needs a well, septic, and power. Power is within the subdivision, but the area receives around 300 days of sunshine per year, and some people here successfully opt for solar power or choose the off-grid lifestyle. Of course, be sure and check with local jurisdictions on the viability and costs of your plans. The subdivision does permit modular homes here. The property has a very gentle slope but is mostly flat. The driveway to the cabin has been cut in. There is a depression on the property near the cabin that seasonally holds water. According to county records, wells in the area are productive, and although not on this property, there are natural springs in the area.
If you have been looking for a spot to get away from a busy lifestyle and relax, or a place to use as a basecamp for hunting or fishing the local rivers and lakes, perhaps bring your horses and explore the area on horseback, this would make a perfect spot! If you are interested in this property, and the unique opportunity to own a piece of Oregon land with a cabin, and spectacular views, give us a call for more information!

This is a drone photo from the property looking out across the valley. The Sprague River below flows on to just below the town of Chiloquin, about 20 miles west of here, where it meets the Williamson River and flows on to provide the upper Klamath Lake, the largest in the state, with the primary supply of fresh water. Both rivers are famous for fly-fishing and trophy-sized trout!

Horseback riding is popular here! The nearby Freemont-Winema National Forest has over 1,000,000 acres of public lands waiting for you to explore! This area is very rural. We noticed that in the town of Sprague River, the Hitching Post/Post Office/Library building still has a place to tie your horse up when you come in!
There is almost no light or air pollution here, and at night the stargazing is spectacular! The elevation is over 4,000 feet here, so it does get cold in the winters, but the area boasts over 300 days of sunshine, which make for those clear, crisp nighttime skies.

The property is part of the Nimrod River Park subdivision. Most of the properties within the subdivision sit high on this volcanic plateau surrounded by ranchland and foothills. A few of the properties have homes, but the area is largely undeveloped. It's very peaceful out here.
This photo was taken standing on what was once the deck of the cabin, the trees have grown up a bit since the cabin was built, but this spot was definitely chosen for the views!
The cabin is definitely a fixer. Including the carport area, the cabin is about +/- 600 sq. feet. It looks like it may have been built in or around the mid 1960's. At one time it was really something special, you could revitalize it and make it special again, this time with your own ideas! You could turn it into a perfect little hideaway or vacation spot!
The roads to the subdivision are paved, and are dirt/gravel within the subdivision. We had no trouble at all accessing the property, and we did get cell service here. There are internet service providers that service this zip code.
