To first lay eyes on the country property nestled above the dramatic rockscapes of Central Oregon is to forget about the conventional terms that often define residential lands. You won’t think about acreage or building lots or land holdings, but rather, how this place came to be. The geological events that created snowcapped mountains to the west, and steep pillars of tuff and basalt to the immediate east. The forces of wind, water and time that carved twisting canyons in the rock while creating the fertile expanse of meadow you now see. A natural history spanning millions of years, and opportunity has intersected it with yours.
Life here harkens back to a time not so distant, though largely forgotten in today’s fast-paced world. From the plentiful sunshine and high desert beauty to its artisan-themed landscaping and Tuscan/Napa-influenced architecture, Ranch at the Canyons is a throwback to Old Country living.
On the Crooked River between Smith Rock and Coyote Butte, its 1,700 acres of verdant meadowland overlook four dramatic, distinctive canyons that offer easy access to a private world of recreational enjoyment and panoramic splendor. The Cascade Mountains shield this Northwest property from the rains of Western Oregon, providing nearly 300 days of sunshine a year while creating a temperate climate that enables flowers, orchards and vineyards to grow on 600 acres of irrigated farmland – all attended to by a dedicated staff. From the perspective of a homeowner, it’s a working country estate without the work.
