20 Acres of Remote Solitude! 2 Bed, Straw Built Home!

56207 Butte Valley Rd, Riley, OR 97758, USA


This is one of the coolest homes I have ever been to.  It is very remote, out near Wagontire Oregon, look it up I think it may have a population of 2.  This property is SW of Burns Oregon 63 miles.  It is 1.5 miles of excellent dirt road and year round access.  The property is fenced and has some amazing views.  The sunsets and sunrises are incredible.  It also has power, and the well water is some of the best I’ve tasted, the well is 150′ deep.  It is fully self contained. Septic and well and power.  If you want peace and quiet and be one with nature this is the place for you.

The owners built this home with love and have enjoyed it for over 20 years.  They had a dream to build a straw bale home years ago and had architectural plans made and then went to work and it is a beauty.

The home features 950 sq, ft. of living area, 1 bedroom 1 1/2 bath, with an office/bedroom, open living area to the kitchen, large food pantry, laundry room and beautiful large covered front porch.  The home as mentioned was framed with wood and built with straw bales and stucco on the inside and outside of the home.  The home has a solid concrete pad throughout, concrete foundation, very nice metal roof, and the R-factor on the straw walls is an R-45, there is also a large open attic that could be more sleeping or storage area.  The home is easy to heat with the wood stove or electric heaters.  There is an on-demand brand new propane hot water heater as well as propane cook stove, oven and dryer.  The flooring is all concrete except in the kitchen and bathrooms which is incredible tile work.  Hardwood cabinets and nice island on rollers.  There are also dual pane vinyl windows throughout the home and a screened in back porch.  The awesome thing about this home is that even though it is a straw built home it is sealed up tight.  No water penetration or bugs or rodents.  Super clean.  This was done right.

The yard is landscaped with a nice lawn, lots of aspen trees.  There is a 12’x22′ shop, wood shed, and one of the nicest underground food cellars you will ever find.  This is truly a diamond in the rough!   This would be an incredible Airbnb or summer retreat.  Dreaming of getting out of the rat race and enjoying some peace and solitude this is the place!  The owners do have Hughes Net satellite internet service and cell phone service is now much better with the installation of a new cell tower at the home for there phone service.  This is the perfect bug out spot for you and the family!
