Property Description

This is a dream property only 5 miles from Harbin Hotsprings and 3 miles from Middletown. Own your own land with a year round spring rights. Even in this drought, the water is plentiful. We have built a 1400 sqft round strawbale house in 2008 and planted over 50 trees since then (olives, almonds, apples, peaches, mulberry, cherries etc...) all permaculture style. This property backs into Harbin Hotsprings and is on a end of a private road. Property is Agriculture Exempt (Ag Exempt) for farming and animals, with a legal 2000 sqft Barn/Greenhouse. Other storage sheds are on site with a 700 sqft lookout / sunning private deck. The main house has 3 bedrooms and one bathroom. The house is highly energy efficient with a wood burning stove and radiant floor heating. Additional solar hot water system to heat the house and water in winter. The walls are straw bale Post and Beam with over 18 inches thick. The roof is SIP (structural insulated panels) and exceed the building requirements with over 8 inches of solid insulation. This is an environmentally friendly non-toxic house, the experience of being in well insulated round house will astonish you. House is plumbed and ready to add an additional bathroom from master bedroom. Property engineered septic system and underground electric has been designed to allow for a granny / guest house to be added. According to the lake county building department, you can add another 1,000 square foot house. We have 3 kids and have recently moved to Southern Oregon, so this is your opportunity to own a beautiful unique property.
