The Shy Mountain Ranch is one of the most unique properties in the Pacific Northwest.  It is located North of Elgin, Oregon, in the rolling timbered foothills of the Wallowa Mountains.  Open meadows with scattered pockets of timbers and extraordinary views are highlights.

The ranch contains 194 acres with nice pastures and surrounding timber.  The pastures are sub-irrigated, well fenced perimeter and cross fenced with a good set of livestock handling facilities.

The home is an all custom single story with a partial lower level and finished upper level.  The all natural wood exterior has a large covered deck wrapping around the entire home.

The interior is also all wood and contains features that are too extensive to describe.  The thing that can be said is the home is so comfortable that when you walk in, you never want to leave.  The floor plan is open with a great room/large kitchen and walk in pantry.  The custom gas stove, ovens and large hood are of commercial quality.  The master bedroom and bath feature a large walk in closet and beautiful fireplace.  The master bath is very nice and the bedroom opens to a semi sunken hot tub.

The oversized two car garage is 30 x 30.  All concrete sidewalks and the garage have heated circulating in floor radiant heat.  The upper floor over the garage has two bedrooms and a full bath used for guest quarters.

The off grid features.  The improvements are powered by a solar and generator back up power system.  It features two solar panels, an 8kw and 12 kw integrated system with Out Back 48 volt storage and management system.  There is 3 phase power and literally the system is automated, and virtually maintenance and worry free.  The internet service is high speed and Dish provides satellite television.  You would never know it is off grid other than there is no monthly bill.

Domestic water is abundant and delicious, and is sourced from springs on the property.  There is a water filtration system as well.

The ranch is well improved with numerous outbuildings including a nice shop and office, large barn and horse stables.  There are large raised beds for garden and produce, an orchard and free range chickens and a large rose garden.  There is also a 90 plus year old second dwelling that has been meticulously restored.

The property offers abundant wildlife with elk, deer, turkey and more.

Overall, this property is 20 minutes from town on county maintained roads.  Even though you are off grid you would never know it; there is no lack of anything except a bill from the local utility!
