Country Living – Centrally Located – Beautiful Central Oregon Views

There are so many wonderful things about this Powell Butte, Oregon property that it's truly hard to know where to start. The owners have called this property home since the early 1980s, raising a wonderful herd of cattle, native meadow grass hay, and a family.

The property is in a central Oregon rural community located just 15 minutes from Redmond and Prineville, and 25 minutes from Bend.  This 232-acre private piece of property sits in a quintessential farm setting and features three homes, a large barn, machine shop, and woodworking buildings, a large storage building, and cattle feedings areas. 

The property features two ponds with plenty of migratory birds on the property.  The native meadows are flood irrigated and produce hay and grazing pasture for cattle, horses, and other livestock.  There are also several good sites to construct a dream house with amazing views of the Cascade Mountains and Smith Rock.  The owners have cared for this property for nearly 40 years and look forward to working with you!
