What we were looking for:

Welcome to a very special property being offered directly by the owner.  We looked for several years for a property that had all the right ingredients for a retreat that could serve us during normal times, but also has the features that would serve us in case of a breakdown of society where one needs a residence that offers security and tactical advantages.  We wanted property that had the adequate rise so one could have tactical advantages being naturally offered by the property, i.e. fall back positions but if needed always offering personal advantage.  We also wanted a property that was very forested and offered different terrain so both beautiful and useful.  A adequate growing season would also be required so a adequate garden could be cultivated to provide both vegetables and fruit. It was important to have a secluded and secure, but not at the top of a mountain which could become inaccessible during winter.  We also wanted to make sure we were not within striking distance from a major city, however, still close enough to obtain goods during good times and bad.  Also important was to find a property that was not directly off a state route, instead at least a few roads off any thoroughfare.  It would also be important to find a property that had a good water source and also would be favorable to solar panels if needed.

What we found:

Check off all the boxes above.  This beautiful piece of property comprises 60 acres, about 10 acres are flat where residences, garden and other daily chores are conducted.  Most large acreages in this area have been logged and then sold for residential use, that is not the case with this property.  Trees predominantly Ponderosa Pine are in the 80 to 120 years old providing a beautiful forest, very mature along with Douglas Fir in the darker sections of the property.  The property has lots of plateaus, rock faces, lookouts and rises that allow great view points back to the residence.  The property has a large fenced garden area that is historic with great soils for quality organic growing.  This property also meets all the requirements of a secure property, 85 miles north of the closest major city, three roads off a State Route but still accessible, and lastly but possibly most important a good water source that could be depended on during any situation.  This one has it all, please read on, you will appreciate this very unique property.
