For Sale: 2.73 acres with excellent soil and water in rural Polk county


Three-bedroom farm-style home and several outbuildings on 2.73 acres in the Willamette Valley. The property is located about thirty minutes from Albany, Corvallis, and Salem.

The two-story home is 2,200 square feet with tile and wood floors throughout and many unique features, including an open floor plan, upstairs balcony, an office with a private entrance, and a semi-attached greenhouse.  It is ready for a woodstove.  Salvaged building materials, one-of-a kind built-ins, and multi-paneled doors were used throughout the 1991 extensive remodel of the original structure.  The house is freshly painted and has a new roof.

The large backyard includes two cherry trees from an orchard planted in the 1930s, and a very large garden area, which includes eight raised beds.  The soil is alluvial.  The land has been organically farmed since 1979 and was formerly certified by Tilth.  It has an excellent well.  DEQ well testing results from 2017 are available.

The property has a large barn, a large shop, a covered open-air workspace, and a chicken coop. The barn has a produce storage room, a milk stand for goats, and several stall areas. The land and buildings are ideal for goats or other small animal production. The large pasture is fenced and cross-fenced; the fence and pastures need work.  The pastures have mature woods on two sides.

The property will go on the market in early July, listed by Town and Country in Corvallis with an expected asking price of $597,000.00
