Grande Ronde River Recreational Property

Troy, OR


Details for Troy, OR 97885

Description: The Grande Ronde River Recreational Property provides the rare and unique opportunity to own a piece of private river frontage along one of the Pacific Northwests premium steelhead fisheries. Residing approximately 30 feet above the river, built on a rock bluff, is a 5,500 +/-sqft house. The 4 bed, 3.5 bath home was completely remodeled in 2007. The home is mostly two stories with a 3rd story office looking down into a deep pool that holds steelhead and salmon from fall through early spring. The main property spans 63.57+/- acres with the balance of the property wooded or open hillside. On the approximately 10 acres of flat bottom ground there are 8 +/- acres of water rights from the river, a modern irrigation system, a large fully insulated barn, storage building/chicken coop, and a large fenced garden with a small orchard. Adjoined next to the main property is a second 880 +/- sqft house on 5.89 acres that could be used as a rental or home for a caretaker. The property is located near the town of Troy, OR at the bottom of the Grande Ronde River Canyon providing a great degree of privacy and access to and from the property year round. There are a lot of special unique features to this property, but without a doubt, the river and its intimate relationship to the house is the most extraordinary. No two days are alike on the river. Living at the bottom of a canyon accentuates seasonal changes. There is a twist or turn in the weather most days, plus the changing flow and character of the river, and rapid changes in vegetation from one season to the next. The patterns of light on the canyon walls in the morning and as the sunsets are always changing. The colors of the canyon shift with changes in the weather challenging every fisherman day by day. The Seller speaks of magical days on the Grande Ronde when the river is full of active fish and the weather is perfect. They say there are special days like this every year, and those lucky enough to live on the river and know its moods have a really good chance of taking advantage of them.
