Very seldom do improved large acreage tracts with all of the amenities and convenient access come on the market.
Centrally located in Azalea and just thirty-three miles from Grants Pass and thirty-eight miles from Roseburg, this serene ±136 acres awaits. With I-5 less than two miles away and Quines Creek Rd leading directly to the driveway, access is not a worry. Any neighbors in the area are blocked out of view by the healthy forest, giving a feel of total privacy. The newly gated and rocked driveway lined with trees leads up a slight incline and opens to a freshly cleared, cut and leveled home pad with plenty of room. The homesite approval process is in the final stages of completion with Douglas County. The septic test holes have been dug with all paperwork submitted for septic approval.
Currently, the property is set up in an off-grid manner, but the power lies just 200 feet away from the building site at the road. A brand new well has been drilled with a completed depth of ±280 feet, that produces 16 GPM, and was fitted with a 10 GPM pump. An abundance of water on the land includes two streams that are set in amongst the tall trees providing several private, cold areas, to retreat from the summer heat. Scattered around various areas of the acreage is also a number of seepage springs evidenced not only by the green grass and soft ground but also by the amount of wildlife sign around them. All of the local wildlife are present on the property, including elk, deer, bear, and turkey, making this ideal for a private hunting ground. Approximately 80 acres were clear cut around eleven years ago providing a good food source for the local game. These acres now boasts a healthy stand of ten-year-old Douglas-fir growing well for potential future income. There are also approximately twenty-five acres (one ten-acre and one fifteen-acre stand) of merchantable age Douglas-fir, as well as a supply of hardwoods ideal for firewood, with other flora including hazelnut, dogwood, and blackberries. A sizable portion of the ground is flat, some even potentially tillable, with other areas having desired gently sloped south-facing hillsides. The terrain of this land is unique, with hillsides rolling down to the valley floor and creek bottom from two sides, essentially forming your private valley.
The tranquility and beauty of this property, along with the beauty of the surrounding landscape, truly make this a hidden gem.
