Pacific Northwest Property For Sale

Located just outside of Astoria, Oregon (oldest city west of the Rockies) this property has only been owned by one family since the 1860s, before that no one owned it. All original miles, many nooks that maybe no one has ever traipsed. Just under 7 acres in an R2 zoned area. Two sites fully developed with all utilities and septic systems installed and the possibility for a third site with utilities brought in but not installed.

One of the sites is waterfront, on the banks of the Walluski River, with a 1976 built Adair home. Three+ bedrooms, 1.5 baths, needs some TLC, but has a septic system, water, electricity, cable and internet running to it. Securing a water line is important as there is often a moratorium on the water and new development is restricted without water rights.

The second site just has a 14x70 trailer that was used as a storage unit. This site has the largest septic system that can be put in for a residential unit, capable of handling a six bedroom home and an RV hookup. The site also has water, electricity, cable and internet running to it. There is an orchard with various apple trees, two kinds of pear, cherry trees, marionberry, blueberry, and raspberry bushes, a fig tree and an almond tree.   This property will be going to auction on April 28th. If you buy now you won't be in a bidding war for the rarely available sites that are fully developed and already own water rights. You also will get the plans for the property, the septic system installation, and the house plans for the home.  On Zillow the home on just a 200'x200' lot is appraised st $228,000. All 6.9 acres, two fully developed homesites and one potential homesite can be yours for $499,999.  Look for our ad in the Sunday LA Times.

What we are offering the new owner is some of the last available Walluskie land in the heart of the wild foothills of the coastal range- deer, elk, cougar, coyotes, eagles, and osprey are regular visitors to this secluded estate as well as succulent salmon, steel head and organic gluten free waterfowl.  Seafood is just fifteen minutes away where clams and crabs are waiting for you to come and pluck them from the beach. 

Want to know a little more about Astoria and what's so great about living here? Here's a short video of pictures of what you can see and do, the theaters we have, the movies made here, the fun in the sun, water, and rain. It is a mere hour from the mountains and snow, 90 miles from Portland International Airport, fifteen minutes from a beach, ten minutes from a lake and a blink of an eye from a river. You need this property. Build on one site and rent out or sell the other. Use for corporate retreats or full time living.
