Details for Baker City, WA 97814
Description: Baker County was an unsettled wilderness, visited only by Indians and travelers on the Oregon Trail headed for the green valleys of Western Oregon. It is said that the first furrow turned in this fertile valley was plowed in the spring of 1863, bringing forth bountiful harvests. Pioneers greatly improved the farming and infrastructure of the Wingville area in the following years.
The Wingville Ranch is located 1 mile North of Wingville, and 6.5 miles from Baker City, Oregon. It consists of 97 acres of grazing pasture and a seasonal pond located at the center of the property. The ranch has silt loam soils which neighboring properties have historically grown higher value crops on like alfalfa and potatoes. The ranch does not have water rights to grow these crops but the soils currently produces a grass pasture mix that livestock can graze throughout the growing season. The primary source of livestock water comes from a combination of the seasonal pond and a domestic well near the house. Year round access to the ranch is county maintained along Old Wingville Road. Additional access to Highway 30 is available by traveling Payton Lane which borders the South side of the Ranch.
A 1982 Class 5 double wide Fuqua home is located on the Southwest corner of the ranch which is supplied by a well. Three bedrooms, living room, kitchen, utility room and a bonus room that was added on to the East side of the doublewide. The home was recently lived in and is ready for showings.

Seller has a recent repair quote for interested buyers.
