This large property sits high on a volcanic plateau, and most of the land is flat offering gorgeous views across the Sprague River Valley and the surrounding mountains and foothills. The valley is comprised mostly small farms and ranches. As this property sits on the edge of the volcanic rim, your incredible views would remain unobstructed. The area is rural, but not remote. There is the small community of Sprague River just down the road, and the city of Klamath Falls is only about 45 minutes away. The adjoining property is also for sale from the same owner!

You can make an offer on one, or both if you would like a larger property. ( This listing is lot #19, lot# 21 is offered for $14,700). Since the property sits on the tableland, it is primarily flat.

The views here are absolutely gorgeous! After its beginning high in the nearby mountains, The river slowly meanders along as it makes its way through the small family farms and pastureland that make up the valley below.
It is so peaceful up on the rim looking out across the valley to the foothills in the distance. There is almost no light or air pollution here. As the sun dips below the Cascade Mountains to the west, the sunsets are really something to see, and at night, the stars light up the sky for the most spectacular stargazing!
It is rural here, but not remote. You are only a few miles to the small community of Sprague River, about 20 miles from Chiloquin, which has about 700 people, and around an hour to the city of Klamath Falls, which has a modern hospital, large box stores for shopping, and airport, active nightlife and all the amenities you would expect from a larger city. If you travel north on Hwy 97 about 100 miles, you reach Bend, which is the largest city in Central Oregon and an epicenter for educational, spiritual, artistic, cultural, and recreational activities.
The subdivision does have a few full-time residents, but it is not very populated. There is a great deal of privacy here. Power is to the subdivision, but be sure and check with local jurisdictions on the distance and costs to bring it to the property. Even though it does get cold here in the winter, the Klamath basin gets around 300 days of sunshine per year, and many people successfully opt for solar power of live completely off-grid! The property would also need a well and septic prior to building.

It is only about a 10 minute drive to the river, and the surrounding area has many mountain lakes and streams.

The views are what makes this property so desirable! It is incredibly quiet and serene here. When we got out and walked the property, the thing that struck me immediately was that it was so peaceful. The only noise I could here was an occasional bird flying overhead and the far off sound of a tractor down in the valley. There are a few year-round residents in the subdivision, but they are also here to enjoy the peaceful tranquility.

The Cascade Mountains lie to the west of the property, and the subdivision sits within the rain shadow of these towering mountains.

The spring frosts are often late though, so you may need to cover your garden starts on those cold mornings.
