Welcome to Retriever Valley Farm
84580 Territorial Hwy, Eugene, Oregon
This premiere dog training farm features 222+/- stunning acres in beautiful wine country, southwest of Eugene, Oregon. The land offers multiple contours with level hay fields, approximately 5,000 feet of frontage on year-round Coyote Creek, irrigation rights, and a timbered hillside with accessible grades & trails. Although the property is well suited for training dogs, this land would also serve very well as a cattle, horse, or hay operation.
Location: Just 14 miles to the Eugene Airport, 17 miles to the University of Oregon, and 55 miles to the Oregon Coast at Florence.
Acreage Description: 222.68+/- acres consisting of 2 separate tax lots. Lane County shows Lot 1202 is mapped as 221.39 acres, and lot 1200 is mapped as 1.29 acres. Both lots are zoned E40. The property is perimeter fenced and the main access is gated with the driveway and bridge shared with the south adjacent farm. There’s approximately 50 acres in hay production, 55 acres in irrigation & water storage rights, 76 acres treed hillside with road and trail access, and the balance in pastures, waterways, & wetlands.
Dog Training: The areas for dog training were efficiently designed with flat ground, perfect for pattern work, as well as a circuit of waterways with multiple islands, spits, points, and visibility mounds. A long winding channel compliments the round and technical ponds, and the private, quiet location offers great focus for future champions.
Main Home/Barndominium: You’ll be amazed at the lodge-style craftsmanship and the comfortable feel of this home. Custom lighting, natural wood and stone finishes, and rustic stained cement floors offer warmth and welcome.
Other fine attributes in the home include soaring ceilings, leathered granite countertops in the kitchen, solid wood doors throughout, wide plank wood moldings, window casings, and trim, and a sound system that sends your favorite music from inside the home to the covered patio and into the shop. The primary suite offers two walk-in closets with built-in organizers and the private bathroom offers a large steam shower with a rain head.
The upstairs space is an open loft but could be finished off into separate rooms and there’s plumbing and venting roughed in for a bathroom in the NW dormer.
Chilly temperatures are no threat with the home’s radiant floor heat, beautiful Vermont Castings woodstove, and a 5-zone ductless heat pump system with 3 indoor units.
Wood Boiler: The wood fired boiler unit is positioned at the back of the shop structure. When loaded and lit, it will heat water to feed the radiant floor zones. Once the water temperature within the boiler reaches 92 degrees, the thermostatic valve switches to the wood boiler and provides heat for the radiant floor zones. When the wood boiler is not in use, the radiant floor heat is fueled by the dual tankless hot water system which runs on propane. All this happens automatically and provides heat from a renewable, sustainable resource.
48’ x 50’ Shop: This finished shop area is well equipped with plenty of outlets, a workbench and houses the mechanical room for the radiant floor heat. Its height and depth allows for large RV storage.
Guest House/MFH: The 1,782sf Moduline manufactured home was built in the year 2000 and was converted to use as a Guest House during construction of the Barndominium which is now the primary residence. The Guest House is home to the caretaker, Rob, and he would consider staying on for a period of time.
