This property offers an ownership experience few could imagine. A stunning home with beautiful Cascade Mountain views, located on 342 acres of park-like Ponderosa Pines, it is bordered on two sides by thousands of acres of National Forest. Everything has been planned and implemented to give this property the true “get away from it all feel”. From the forestry management plan to the pond, the pool and the home, it is a property unlike any other you have seen or had the joy of exploring.
The ranch is located approximately 5 short miles from Sisters, Oregon. Towering forests of Ponderosa pines, the snowy Cascade Mountains, pristine rivers, lakes, and streams, sun-drenched days and star-filled western nights are the beauty of this area. The home has views of 5 mountains from all locations of the home and was purposefully built to admire the beauty they offer. The elevation at your doorstep is 3500 feet, and it is located in western Deschutes County just east of the Cascade Mountains in Central Oregon.
The privacy of a fully fenced 342± acre Ponderosa Pine forest estate near Sisters, Oregon is what this piece boasts. There has been extensive forestation already completed and the forest management plan has been registered with the Oregon State Department of Forestry. This is a very accessible yet completely private setting bordered by 1.8 million acres of Deschutes National Forest. The private access to this National Forest gives one the feeling of being on a ranch with millions of acres. This property could meet the needs of any horse lover. There is a designated barn area with electricity, water, and intercom stub to it. The National Forest horse trail system meanders past the property border, and there are several lakes and trails directly out your back door. All this, in addition to your own ± 342 acres. The forest management plan, originating in 1994, has thinned, mowed, and completed prescribed burns as you might find in a national forest. The entire plan has been documented and mapped. Walking through this property gives the experience of visiting a large and completely private park. The home is protected from fire danger because of the extensive work performed on the acreage. Below the home is a 250,000 gallon pond with a golf course-like grass perimeter. It is all under- ground irrigation and is equipped with a dry hydrant for emergency use.
The work on the home and property has all been done. Cascades Ponderosa Ranch is move-in ready, and the maintenance and upkeep has been meticulous. The ultimate privacy and park-like setting of this property would be difficult to replicate anywhere. With spectacular mountain views, gourmet kitchen, personal 1200 sq ft gym, heated pool, sauna, and other amenities, a more unique and customized home could not be found.
