For Lease: Land with Small Orchard, Large Garden, and Room for Chickens, Dog Friendly in West Salem


I have just over 1/2 an acre in West Salem that I am interested in leasing out. The house is available to lease but optional – 2 story brick Tudor Revival home with partial basement built in 1930; looks like a quaint English cottage (4 bedroom, 1.5 bath). There is room to park an RV or motor home and access to electricity and water. The property has an orchard with 8 apple trees, a cherry tree, and a plum tree. There’s also a 3-variety pair tree and 1 year old apricot tree on the property. The property is made up of 3 lots, on one of which I’ve been keeping bees & chickens, growing vegetables, berries (blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries), herbs and flowers – I call it The Garden Lot. The house is on another lot and the orchard and parking area on the 3rd. Adjacent to the parking area is a building that was formerly a garage. It has a concrete floor and can be used for storage, indoor growing, or as an extra large garden shed or even a small barn. Can be modified by lessee to enlarge entries if needed.  I love the place and hope to lease it out so that I may go to the East Coast to spend time with my parents who are in their 80’s now. Option to lease to own The Garden Lot is an option. Great neighborhood, friendly neighbors and the best schools in Salem.
