Welcome to Mount Baldy Ranch, nestled in the prestigious eastern foothills of Medford. This property offers an incredible opportunity for a private gated community or a multi-family estate and ranch. The ranch's location is phenomenal being just minutes above the highly sought after East Medford housing developments all while delivering the distinct experience of escaping to your own private oasis!
As you turn off of Hillcrest Road, you meander south for one-half mile along a private paved road to the nearly 100 acre northeastern plateau that includes the six approved homesites. This plateau is characterized by beautiful tree-lined pastures, gently rolling topography and stunning west facing views of the full expanse of the Rogue Valley. The ranch offers six buildable private home sites already developed into individual parcels. The opportunity for a multi-family estate is one of a kind with generous space for privacy while still being close enough to be convenient. The ranch could also be developed as a luxury rural community with incredible rural lifestyle opportunities.
The paved road delivers you to a circular drive that is central to the homesites. Homesites one through five are all individual 5-acre parcels and each contain an improved gravel driveway, and septic system. The 6th homesite is located on TL 100 which is the largest parcel at 351.97 acres and also has a septic system. Extensive development has been completed including the installation of electrical conduit and electrical vaults (power will be pulled to the end of the circular drive by the seller, currently in process), multiple domestic wells, significant brush/fuels treatment, and more.
The western slopes of the property comprises approximately 265 acres and includes a multitude of unimproved roads that provide great access for recreation. The topography includes a mix of rolling to moderately steep terrain with multiple draws, meadows and seasonal creeks. Tax Lot 500, the south-forty parcel, is 40 acres and includes a private rock pit, gentle to moderately sloping topography, and a mix of meadows and trees. The views from this location are phenomenal and it also includes the highest location on the ranch. This high bench would be ideal for a campsite or gazebo for enjoying the intense natural beauty.
The High Cascades enjoy over-the-counter hunting tags for deer, elk, turkey, upland game birds and more. Mt. Baldy Ranch is frequented by Roosevelt Elk, Trophy Blacktail deer, Wild Turkey, Black Bear and benefits from exclusive access to an additional 245 acres of landlocked public ground that is only accessible to the surrounding property owners increasing the ranch's recreational opportunities to a total of over 650 acres.
