China Mountain Road, Oregon
Property Types: Vacant Land, Timber Land
Spectacular 163.3 wooded acres with permit for ocean-view home on the southern Oregon coast! Just south of the charming town of Port Orford on a well-graded, county-maintained gravel road that you can drive with any car. Property elevation ranges from 500 to 1,250 feet. Merchantable timber. Adjacent to Humbug Mountain State Park. Close to Cape Blanco and Floras Lake for recreation, and just north of Gold Beach and jet boat tours on the famous Rogue River.
Conditional use permit on file for a dwelling, plus the opportunity to apply for additional uses. At least three level home sites for the view of your choice: westward to the Port Orford Heads and Tichenor Rock; southwestward across the Redfish Rocks Marine Reserve; or southward to Humbug Mountain and the coastline beyond. The mountain was known to natives as “Salmon Cheek” due to its distinctive shape. The state park has over 1,400 acres of land including protected old-growth timber and can be accessed directly from the property.
Build your dream home and cover part of the cost with selective logging of the reproduced timber. Enjoy glimpses of the abundant wildlife. The unique driveway to the home sites has peekaboo views of the sparkling Pacific Ocean, and limited thinning can establish views that will take your breath away.

The previous owner chose this property for its potential as a model of sustainable economic, ecological, and residential uses. He even planted several dozen “champion” redwoods and sequoias (largest specimens of the species) in hidden pockets on the property. Keep an eye out for them among the groves of douglas fir, oak, and pine as you plan your own dream on this spectacular property.
