Welcome to Little Riverbend, a riverfront oasis with two homes boasting over 3200 feet of Little Applegate River frontage. Spread across 12.79 acres, including two homes and an enormous barn, this farm offers a truly unique setting with beautiful modern amenities and benefits from 8.1 acres of irrigation water rights.
The 1201 square foot main home enjoys an elevated setting with long-range views of the property and surrounding mountains of the Applegate Valley. Mature landscaping adorns the yard with an array of fruit trees and beautifully blossoming flowers.
As you enter the main home, wide-plank hardwood floors, a beautiful wood stove, and large wood trimmed windows create a welcoming living room and the space takes in views from both the North and East.
The kitchen offers first-class amenities including both leather finished concrete and butcher block countertops, earth-tone tile floor, six-burner gas cooktop, and a hammered copper kitchen sink that fits perfectly in the fully custom soft-close cabinets. The design of the kitchen includes natural wood beams, a rich tile backsplash, and backlit display cabinetry.
The master suite is a sanctuary with stunning views of the property. It sits at the rear of the home with a private entrance to the back deck that overlooks the field and river below; beautiful wood features, including a knotty tongue and groove ceiling, give this space great character. The ensuite bath features a fully tiled shower with glass door including mosaic flooring and hosts extra storage and a stackable washer and dryer.
Off of the kitchen is the full second bath with a jetted tub and a pantry area that leads to a beautiful foyer. This room provides a relaxing area that features wood clad walls, tile flooring, and a sliding glass door to the back deck. A dining area that is open to the kitchen and second bedroom with natural light completes the main home.
A permitted second dwelling measures 816 square feet and complements the main home. The efficient floor plan provides for airy usable spaces and a functional kitchen. The living room with wood floors and cozy wood stove enjoys natural light and a ductless hvac system. In the kitchen you will find desirable amenities and finishes such as a gas cooktop, updated light fixtures, and ample storage.
The laundry room with washer, dryer, and instant hot water heater has an exterior door and makes for a great mud room leading to the kitchen. Off of the living room, the roughly 17'x12' bedroom enjoys good space with closets and a sliding glass door to a deck and seating area.
In addition to the two homes, there are two garden areas with fruit trees and raised garden beds, a stone paver pavilion, custom glass greenhouse, and the finished guest shed is just perfect for entertaining!
