Built in 1999, this 1774 square foot log home has a very private and beautiful setting on 4.12 acres with water on two sides. There is approximately 320 feet of Hurricane Creek frontage on the South side of the property. A diversion from Hurricane Creek into Upper Alder Slope ditch at the South/Western corner of the property creates a tree lined and natural looking stream that flows along the West boundary for over 550 feet. The property itself has diverse trees with Tamarack, Pine and Fir and you can enjoy picking morel mushrooms which are prolific on the property most springs. The property has been left with a very natural landscape, so there is little landscape maintenance. Some trees are newer and have a drip irrigation system from the well to support them during the driest part of summer.
There is a large fire pit and picnic area next to the creek that is great for gatherings or just your quiet enjoyment. The creek is year around and brings the soothing sounds of water to the property and inside the home. Views of the craggy peaks of the canyon change with the light and seasons. The night sky can be enjoyed-as there is little light pollution to impair its beauty.
The home has 3 bedrooms with the master bedroom on the upper level. The open loft area is large enough to be a sleeping loft or would make a great office space. It is open to the living area below and has great light. The bath on this level is spacious and has a tiled floor and counters, large shower and large corner jetted tub with tiled surround. A window allows in natural light and views of the craggy peaks and trees or night sky. It is so convenient to have a room length bathroom counter with double sinks and storage below There are two closets for clothes storage on this level – one of which is a walk in. The master bedroom has a small balcony and attic storage for seldom used items.
The main level is a great room with tall vaulted ceilings and windows. The living room, dining area and kitchen are open to each other with the living area finished with wood laminate flooring and the kitchen with large ceramic tiles. The kitchen has tiled counters and backsplashes and there is a wide counter to the dining area for extra workspace or serving. All appliances are included in the sale. A Wolf propane stove with electric oven, a wall oven and a built in microwave/convection oven. These are quality appliances with a stainless steel finish. The side by side refrigerator is spacious and has the freezer on the bottom. There is a pantry off the kitchen in the hall. The bedrooms on the main level and up the stairs to the master area are have carpeting that is a warm golden, light brown. The open loft area has a laminate floor. The living room enjoys extra heat and ambiance from a propane stove. The interior of the home is a nice mixture of log finish and painted sheetrock.
The laundry room has a tile floor and a door to the back of the home so it can double as a mudroom. The stacking metallic finish washer and dryer are also included. This utility area also houses a water softener and the forced air propane furnace. Down the hall are the other two bedrooms- both with windows for natural light and views. There is a full main level bath in the hall with tile floors and counters and a tub/shower.
The 850 square foot deck wraps on two sides of the home. The deck is covered on one side and open on the other. It is extra deep and very spacious with plenty of room for multiple tables, sitting areas and hammock to hang out in. The creek is a stones throw, so you will be enjoying the sights and sounds of this amazing property. Again, there is over 320 feet of creek frontage to explore and enjoy if you don’t decide to hang out on the deck.
The shop is 1620 square feet that has 3 roll up doors. The area is split in two with the original oversized double car area that has a concrete floor and workshop/storage areas plus a bathroom that has a shower, toilet and sink. The newer back area is access from roll up doors from the interior or exterior and this area has a gravel floor and is a great space to store things. This has a small room that houses the mechanical area with well pressure tank.
The bunkhouse is on skids but has an accent of boulder and grass landscape around it. The logs were custom selected and the cabin makes a wonderful space for guests to stay. It has electrical and a propane stove but no plumbing as the bath in the shop is just a few steps away. Guests will enjoy the 224 square foot one room bunkhouse with a 112 square foot sleeping loft accessed by a ladder. There is a covered front porch that is large enough for a table and chairs and a BBQ. The unique branch railing was all custom created by nature and a creative contractor.
The horse pasture has safe and sturdy wood rail fencing with a line of hot wire. Water and electricity are right at the fence line for fencing and tank heating needs. There is a round pen to work in that has had a sand footing brought in. The circular driveway goes completely around the shop and the bunk house and is well set up for a truck and horse trailer or other large vehicles to have easy access. Off to the side of the shop is a level RV area where there is access to water, power and a sewer dump for 2 RVs. The property is well set up for all the visitors who will want to check out your beautiful treed getaway in Joseph, Oregon.
