-SOLD- Straw Bale Home and Organic Farm for Sale

Beautiful 6 acre property in the Applegate Valley or Southern Oregon located in the hills between Medford and Grants Pass, Oregon. The custom built straw bale home is 1500 SF with 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. It was built by the owner who was also my lead carpenter and lead baler at the time.

The home has an open floor plan, radiant floor heat, wood stove, custom kitchen with stainless steel appliances, pantry and root cellar. The master suite opens to a deck, and has a beautiful bathroom with a travertine tile 2 head shower. The home, completed in 2008, also has a wrap around deck, high speed internet, and grid-tie solar system.

There is a pond and seasonal creek on the property which help irrigate the established organic gardens, orchard, medicinal herb gardens, and 2000 SF greenhouse. As a working organic farm, there are also agriculture buildings, a 16’x24′ shop, and chicken and goat facilities. Everything you need to step into farm life is already in place. The property backs to BLM land (Bureau of Land Management) which is beautiful and undeveloped. The property has a 20+ GPM well and new septic system. The owner is moving out of town and will be leaving behind an amazing property for someone to swoop up! If you are interested, please contact me via this blog and I will set you up with the owner. The property is listed for a mere $445,000 with everything above included in that price.

    Wow. They stole my wish list. Of course, I couldn’t afford anything at that level w/o winning the lottery, but still! Best of luck in selling it to an appreciative owner who will love and care for it as it deserves.

    Please put me in touch with whoever can answer questions about this property and provide pictures. I own a very lovely home of similar value in Sedona, AZ. Would the owners entertain a trade?

    Hi Karen. I know that they have a new property on which they plan to build another straw bale home here in Southern Oregon. I am not sure if they would entertain the idea of a trade, but it is worth a shot.

    I would just like to point out that you stated (Andrew) that this home was a mere 445,000. I do not know where mere and 445,000 can exist together unless you are bill gates. It is just like our country and hybrid cars, very efficient on a resource level but not on the pocket book. The people who need efficiency the most can not afford it, in this country. Including strawbale homes apparently
