Q & A


This 85+ acre 500 foot headland is one of the most scenic locations on the Pacific Coast, containing both forests and rolling pastures overlooking miles of pounding Pacific whitewater.  The property is directly above the awesome and wave-beaten prow known as Otter Point and Bailey Beach (pictured below and on home page - you also see a topography  map below or request a photo 3D Google Earth link)) owned by the State of Oregon.  Your privacy is assured by the neighboring and nearby conservation and state lands, other coastal estates and working ranches.    

    From the 1870s to the early 1900s, the property was once part of  the famous salmon cannery magnate R. D. Hume’s Wedderburn Ranch, where Hume raised sheep and cattle and even built a racetrack for his horses.  The rolling pastures and well draining soils have also proven to be ideal for horses.  Summer breezes also eliminate insects on most days.

     Located close to the coastal Curry County seat of Gold Beach, the property is 4 miles from restaurants, hospital, small airport, port docks, shopping and the mouth of famous Rogue River, which is unrivaled for Chinook Salmon jet boat fishing and Steelhead fly fishing.  World class golf at Bandon Dunes is an hour away and there is a local golf course.  You can also hike the Oregon Coast Trail or an old growth forest as well as mountain bike the vast federal and state park lands.  You may ride your horses just a short distance to the hard and wide sands of Bailey Beach or join with other equestrians in a myriad of horse activities in our moderate climate with fog-clearing winds for mostly clear days. 

    The well maintained 85 +/- acres are zoned forest/grazing with agricultural tax advantages.  The western portion of the property where it slopes away to the ocean is heavily forested in stands of Douglas fir, spruce and shore pines.  The remaining acreage is mostly beautiful rolling open pasture with grasses.  The well is very strong, producing over twenty-five gallons per minute.  The barn courtyard is attractive and efficiently laid out with a stucco on block wall and accented by a 25’ custom flag pole.  The roads serving the property are excellent gravel roads and the road is paved around residence.  Television is DirecTV and high speed wireless internet by Verizon.  Efficient design, low usage, moderate climate and low electric rates combine to make utility bills surprisingly affordable.  A potential site for a pond also exists near the riding arena. 

     There is a very strong 25+ gallon per minute well and well functioning septic system.   The well was tested in Feb 2014 and passed all microbiology, nitrate, lead, iron and arsenic tests.  It has a ph of 7.6 with no turbidity or color.  The well flow was tested using the well's own pump, which sustained the maximum pump capacity of about 20 gallons per minute for a four hour period, totaling over 4,000 gallons.

    Excellent gravel roads and paved road around residence.  In addition to the dedicated front entrance road, there is also a shared easement rear entrance road.  Low electric rates and low usage due to excellent insulation and moderate climate.  Building siding constructed with stainless steel screws and nails.  Potential site for pond also exists.  2,000 gallon water tank for fire protection with 2 fire hydrants.  All utilities underground.  2”x6” exterior wall construction for residence, barn guest house with stainless steel screws. 

    The property is home to or visited by Roosevelt elk, black tailed deer, rabbits, an occasional fox, bobcat or coyote, and dozens of different bird species including red tailed hawks, owls, quail, wild turkeys, finches, swallows and bald eagles.  In November and March. you'll marvel at the parade of migrating whales just off of Otter Point.
