The property contains two parcels. The house and barn sit on a 20 acre parcel and the 57 acre adjacent parcel is a buildable parcel currently farmed. The 57 acre parcel has a 80 gallon/min well and underground power already in place (a perfected zone permit). The 20 acre parcel is pasture-ground and a homesite. The 57 acre parcel is high producing farm-ground, planted with alfalfa in 2017. It produces about 5 tons/acre with 3 cuttings of premium crop used for dairy farming. There is priority water rights dating back to 1900 and 1915 from the Wallowa River through the Dobbin Ditch. One 1/4 mile wheel line and one 1/4 mile hand line are included. There is a 250HP pump and a buried main line. The 57 acre is currently in annual lease with payment of $4,975/year. Lessee is paying for the electric and other cost associated with irrigation.
This lodge-style home is located just off Crow Creek Road, a quiet paved county road approximately 6 miles from both Enterprise and Joseph, giving the option for kids to attend either Joseph or Enterprise schools. The driveway is paved and has a large circle drive with landscaping and a large parking pad on the east side of the home next to the 1,200 square foot 3-car attached garage, which can easily accommodate full size pickups in two bays. The main entrance is grand, accentuated by large windows, a covered patio with wood beams, and impressive 8-foot tall solid wood door with a knocker. The entry way shows the meticulous stonework that is featured throughout the interior and exterior of the property. The outside of the home is board and bat wood, which was recently stained, and the roof is composition.
Once inside the front door, mountain views straight through the living room captivate the eye. Vaulted ceilings with chandelier light fixtures, floor-to-ceiling windows and the massive stone fireplace with a hearth demand attention. The entry floor is slate leading to hickory hardwood floors that extend through the living, dining and kitchen areas. Sliding glass doors lead to the back patio. The windows are double-paned wood and are energy efficient.
Off the living area, a hallway leads to the west wing of the home. There is a walk-in coat closet near the entry and a half bath sure to impress. The bathroom showcases a floor-to-ceiling stacked pebble wall and countertop backsplash. The floors are travertine, as are all the bathrooms in the home. Off the hallway, there is a den with beautiful built-in shelves. This room would make an excellent office with direct views of the mountains.
The master suite is at the end of the hallway. The bedroom has vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors, a grand propane fireplace and views of the mountains to the south and the barn and fields to the west. Sliding glass doors lead to a private covered patio. The in-suite bathroom is amazing. A tray ceiling, two vanities with sinks and granite counters, tons of storage, a mini-fridge, travertine floors and room for a T.V. are the first things to catch your eye. There is a spacious walk-in shower with 6 shower heads and a glass surround, and a jetted tub with its own private fireplace. The tub has calming views of the mountains. The master bath also has a separate toilet room and his-and-hers walk-in closets with built-in closet organization.
A junior suite is situated down the hall from the master bedroom. It has a propane fireplace and views facing to the north. The in-suite bathroom has single-sink vanity, a large soaking tub, separate toilet room and 6 showerhead walk-in shower. The counters are a dark granite, and the flooring and shower surround are cream-colored travertine tiles. A walk-in closet is off the bathroom.
On the east side of the living room is the dining area. The dining area has a chandelier light fixture and tray ceiling to define the space. There is a small wine room with a wavy glass door and storage for approximately 100 bottles of wine. Next to the dining area is a full-service bar. It has liquor cabinets, a wrap-around granite counter with storage and room for bar stools, a sink, a Sub-Zero ice maker and beverage fridge and an Asko dishwasher. A sliding window reaches from the bar to the back patio, which acts as a pass-through. Across from the bar is the media room. With dimming lights and dark shades, this is the perfect space to watch T.V. It has a projector and screen and a stepped-up floor for theater seating.
From the living and dining areas you enter the kitchen with vaulted ceilings and a freestanding Regency woodstove with a rock hearth. The kitchen has a massive island with hickory cabinets, live-edge granite counters and bar seating. The appliances are all stainless steel and include a Sub-Zero built-in fridge, Kitchenaid trash compactor, Asko dishwasher, dual Wolf built-in wall ovens, and a Sharp built-in microwave drawer. A pot filler is mounted on the wall above the Wolf 6-burner propane range. There is a triple-bowl stainless steel sink with a garbage disposal and instant hot water. The backsplashes are travertine and a beautiful copper-colored tile. Off the kitchen is a walk-in pantry, sliding glass doors to the back patio, a breakfast nook which could act as a small office, and a full bathroom. There are two additional bedrooms with walk-in closets and in-suite bathrooms on this end of the home. One bedroom has a fireplace and sliding glass doors leading to the patio.
Behind the kitchen is the garage, a tiled slate entry with amply storage, and a utility room which houses the dual 278 gallon propane hot water heaters and the Beam central vacuum unit for the home. The house has an Energy Star geothermal HVAC system which makes it relatively inexpensive to heat and cool for a residence of this size.
Besides the closets nestled throughout the home, the final room is the laundry room. It is equipped with an Asko washer and dryer, ample counter space and built-in storage, and a utility sink. The floors are slate and the counters are granite.
The back patio is the ultimate area to entertain or relax. Totaling nearly 2500 square feet, the back patio has a propane firepit, outdoor kitchen area equipped with a DCS mini-fridge and grill, and is wired to the indoor/outdoor sound system. The views are expansive.
The land is level and has full irrigation rights from Farmers’ Ditch. The yard has a wood rail fence and the pasture is cross-fenced. A large historic barn is located on the property. The adjacent buildable 57 acres are available for sale with the home only. The parcel is also level with priority irrigation rights and has underground power and a well already in place.
This property would make an excellent get-away, full time residence, hunting lodge or with county approval, a potential bed-and-breakfast or event venue. The options are limitless.
