People come to Central Oregon from all over the world to enjoy its spectacular beauty and unparalleled access to outdoor recreation. But what if, instead of having to hop in your car or onto a plane, you had access to that bounty in literally your own backyard?
Sound appealing? Then check out our newest listing. 16755 Elk Court, located to the north of La Pine along the Little Deschutes, is your opportunity to make that dream a reality.
It’s rare to find a property that checks off all the boxes. But, if you’ve been searching in vain, then search no further. This updated 1982 sq. foot country-style home is located on 8 acres of open pasture with cross-fencing, a horse barn, and 676 feet of river frontage.
Mount Bachelor features prominently in the panoramic vista visible from the great room and covered rear deck. Large windows and an open floor-plan leave out none of the scenery. Majestic sunsets are a nightly feature here! The winter views are especially spectacular and can be enjoyed while you cozy up next to the wood stove.
Walk or drive down across open pasture, perfect for horse or livestock grazing, and you’ll find yourself at the Little Deschutes and the perfect launch point for your summer fishing, boating, or swimming adventures. The trout here are big, and they’re definitely biting!
There’s plenty of other wildlife to be spotted–bird-watching aficionados, take note. And heck, if you’re looking to hone your golf game, the lot’s unique shape even makes for a perfect driving range.
Feels Like Home: Country-Style Touches with a Royal Master Suite
We could go on and on about what’s outside, but what about the house? This lovingly-updated home opens up into a bright and spacious great room, where the first thing you’ll notice is the stunning wood beams and paneling. Then you’ll see the views!
It’s the little touches that most impress: wooden door frames and raw edge wood shelves in the kitchen, a pantry with all the storage space and cabinets you could need, the inviting covered entrance. But that’s before you even get upstairs.
Let’s take a little tour of the master suite. You’ll notice, first of all, that it’s huge. The views, with mountain-facing windows, certainly won’t disappoint, but that’s a given.
Proceeding to the master bathroom, you’ll immediately be charmed by the hardwood flooring, claw foot tub, natural wood sink top, and stained glass. But the suite’s most striking feature is perhaps its walk-in closet. With more floor and wall space than many bedrooms, it’s fit for a Queen, with plenty of room left to spare for her King’s wardrobe.
The two-car garage, detached shed, covered firewood storage, chicken coop and horse barn mean plenty of space for you, your stuff, and your animal friends. A bit about that horse barn: it’s well-built and complete with stalls and a loft, making this property an obvious home-run for horse-lovers.
Location, Location, Location: Country Living with Easy Access to Bend
At LOHR Real Estate, we like to wax rhapsodic about the many charms of living in and around Bend, Oregon. Its shopping, entertainment, restaurants, and of course breweries are world-class. But obviously, you’re going to be hard-pressed to find eight acres right in the middle of all that.
So, why not get the best of both worlds? Here, you’re just a hop, skip and a jump away from all that Bend has to offer, less than thirty minutes by car. Highway 97 is close by, but you’re far enough away not to hear it. And, of course, it’s just a short walk to your own private river access.
Working as a Realtor, you sometimes end up listing properties where you’re inspired to linger maybe a little longer than you necessarily need to. This was one of those. Walking through its wide-open pasture under brilliant blue sky on a crisp October morning, it was all too easy to picture myself taking that same stroll every day.
Alas, for me it’s just a dream. But for you, this home could be a dream come true. Request a viewing today!
