Purchased in 1903, the Minear Ranch Estates have represented the beauty and potential of Southern Oregon for over a century. Every plot of land was chosen and designed with every potential family in mind, with some plots granting amazing views, and others, more privacy.
“Every lot has its own characteristics,” the current owner of the land, Don Litchfield, said. “Some are flat and some have tremendous views from the top. Every lot is unique.”
Litchfield says that this was the goal in dividing up the plots of land. Anyone looking to purchase a plot can pick and choose the one that best suits their own individual needs and wants.
The land itself includes 11 total lots cleared for residential building, spread out over 153 acres. The land is centrally located in between Jacksonville and Medford, with each town being a short drive away. Each plot has a driveway to it, as well as underground utilities to the property lines, septic approval, and domestic wells installed.
This land is for anyone who loves wide open spaces and privacy, but also values being connected to nearby towns. The opportunity presented here is truly unique, and will be extremely difficult to find anywhere else.
“There are very few properties in Oregon right now that present the kinds of opportunities that the Minear Estates do,” Broker Alan DeVries said about the property. “With the opportunity to claim 10 and 20 acre parcels, there really aren’t any other opportunities like this.”
Especially because of Oregon zoning laws, finding land like this can be very difficult, if not impossible. The history of the Minear Ranch Estates is embedded into the history and development of Southern Oregon. This is a special place that just needs the right people to claim it.
