Sold: 2015 The Riverhouse on the Lower Deschutes Madras, OR

Details & Features

Located north of Madras, Oregon, the Riverhouse on the Lower Deschutes is positioned on a 0.63-acre lot with 200 feet of river frontage along the famed Lower Deschutes River and deeded access to an additional 200 feet upstream. This property is rare in that it provides an incoming owner with private access to the Lower Deschutes as well as access to an additional 1.5 miles of private water downstream, only accessible to 12 property owners on this stretch of the Deschutes. Situated in scenic Central Oregon, Jefferson County is a blend of industry, agriculture and recreation. The county offers a slower pace, yet is close to the big city amenities of Bend and Portland.

The custom-designed home and detached garage is comprised of 3,137 livable sqft with 5 bedrooms and 4 baths, featuring circle-sawn fir floors, two screened porches and large deck overlooking the river, custom knotty alder cabinets, granite and slate countertops, an outdoor barbeque, a fly tying, game and trophy room, and an outdoor fire pit, all wrapped with professional landscaping. A large 1,500 sqft detached garage and shop with 14’ and 10’ doors provides plenty of room for recreational gear storage.

The Lower Deschutes River is world famous for its native rainbow trout fishery. Because this section of the Deschutes is a tailwater fishery, the river supports enormous aquatic insect populations. The Lower Deschutes is world-renowned for its salmonfly, golden stone and caddis hatches, keeping anglers busy from April through December. In addition, the Deschutes River is host to a large run of summer steelhead and an increasing population of spring chinook salmon and sockeye salmon as well as smaller populations of bull and brown trout. Hunting for Mule deer and elk are popular pastimes in Central Oregon. For bird hunters, the area boasts respectable populations of pheasant, chukar, Hungarian partridge, doves, quail and waterfowl. With excellent fishing opportunities, this private retreat provides exclusive access to the sought-after Lower Deschutes River. This is a rare chance for ownership on this world-class river.
