Very motivated sellers! Positioned on 77 acres of lush, irrigated land just six miles from historic Baker City, this stunning estate donned "Salmon Creek Retreat" enjoys a fantastic location with convenient access to worldclass hiking and skiing. A stone walled entrance offers security and privacy, a fitting introduction to this oneofakind property with current income potential as a vacation rental. At the heart of the pristine acreage, a luxury ranch home takes pride of place, offering ample accommodation for family and guests. Unique flourishes, spacious rooms and a handsome man cave combine with a cohesive and wellplanned living space. Beyond the residence, a detached garage, guest house, shop and greenhouse provide all the facilities for classic ranch living. Breathtaking views of the Elkhorn Mountains extend from the home, the landscape shifting dramatically throughout the year, from alpine pastures in spring and summer into a skier's dream come winter. From the crystal-clear pool, outdoor kitchen, pergola, tennis court and fire pit, the backyard serves up unparalleled entertaining amid incredible vistas of wildlife and scenery. Relax to the sounds of the trickling Salmon Creek that meanders over one half mile through the property. A sublime proposition that captures the spirit of Eastern Oregon, this rural compound encompasses excellent water rights, mature landscaping and an outstanding outdoor environment. At this time, the pastures are leased on an annual basis, with approximately 73 acres being utilized for grazing. The grazing season typically runs from mid-May or early June until October. The pastures are flood irrigated using water rights from Salmon Creek with an 1867 priority date. Carrying capacity will depend upon individual management practices. The main home is comprised of 4,220 square feet of living space. The home features 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, great room, kitchen, office, family room, man cave, pool room, and more. Unobstructed views of the Elkhorn Mountains are found from most points of the home. A detached, 2 car garage and attached carport provide parking spaces out of the weather. A second home, formerly an office building, is utilized as an extremely successful vacation rental. The building features 4 bedrooms, 1 1/2 bathrooms, small kitchen, and living areas. Demand is high year-round and a partnership with Anthony Lakes Mountain Retreat currently gives guests access to discounted lift tickets. The steel framed, fully insulated 60' x 68' shop is accessible to all sorts of vehicles and toys with an 18' roll-up door. The floor is a 10" thick concrete pad which provides plenty of support for all types of machinery. A workshop and loft area are positioned in the SE corner of the shop. Overhead propane heating runs nearly the length of the shop, making this shop comfortable for the entire year. The Baker Valley is well known for its highly productive agricultural community with a strong small-town culture. The area is also an outdoor recreational paradise, with access to thousands of acres of public lands, excellent skiing at Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort, phenomenal hiking, great camping and RV'ing, horseback riding, and multiple reservoirs allow for summer watersports.
