Extraordinarily diverse 63.2 acre property with many unique attributes! The high traffic, well-marked intersection location on Hwy 18 between McMinnville and the beach offers great opportunities for different potential uses. Hedgerows and plantings of a majestic mix of 20-year old fir and pine trees provide a buffer and bring peaceful tranquility to the forests and meadows that comprise this property. Stories have been published about the Oregon white truffles that have been found growing in the pine duff under the tree canopy. The beautiful trees are protected from harvesting until 2062 by a carbon-offset agreement, but commercial thinning is allowed.
The current owners keep a few horses and have fabulous riding trails through the trees and meadows. The large cultivated areas are used for pasture and hay. There are two paddocks and the 26 X 60 barn has two 12X12 matted stalls (with room for more), an insulated tack room, spacious feed room and storage area. A new owner could potentially develop a world-class equine facility of his own design on this one-of-a-kind acreage.
The property is also located within the McMinnville AVA (American Viticulture Area) and has predominantly Woodburn and Amity soils per the NRCS. There is potential for a winery tasting room and other entitlements if a vineyard were planted, as the "exclusive farm use" (EFU) zoning allows property owners to apply for a winery license if they have at least 15 acres of planted wine grapes. Given the quality soils, one might also consider growing other specialty crops and opening a farm stand at this high-traffic/visibility intersection as well.
The classic 1900's farmhouse has been updated in style and is very livable. There are 4 bedrooms with the master on the main level, 2 baths and a fenced yard. Yamhill County planning department says a replacement dwelling permit could be obtained that would allow the home to be replaced elsewhere on the property. There's a spectacular private building site surrounded by trees on a plateau near the middle of the property.
The 30 X 50 metal pole building has a concrete floor, houses the holding tank for the domestic well water, and provides abundant storage for toys and equipment. Luxurious chicken accommodations are nearby. At the northeast corner, the property borders Deer Creek with a substantial swimming hole in a lovely setting, another unique feature of this amazing property.
