Listed by Terry Silbernagel
Address: 12405 Meridian Rd. NE
Closest city (area): Mt Angel
Lot Size: 67.43 tax roll acres
Annual Property Tax: $2,588 for the 2012/2013 tax year
Location: Property is located in Township 5 South, Range 1 West, Sections 25 and 36, Tax lot 100. It is located northeast of Mt. Angel, adjacent to the community of Monitor, with a physical address of 12405 Meridian Rd. NE, Mt. Angel, Oregon.
Land: The subject property, which is dissected by Meridian Rd, consists of 67.43 tax roll acres and contains both upland and bottom land ground along Butte Creek. The soils are predominantly 58% Amity silt loam and 25% Willamette silt loam with the balance of the soils being a mixture of several other types of clay and silt loams. The topography is level to gently rolling, and with these highly productive soils, the property can grow almost any crop produced here in the Willamette Valley.
Zoning: Exclusive Farm Use
Improvements: There is an extensive list of building improvements on this farm. The home, according to the Marion County Assessors Office, was constructed in 1901 and has 1980 square feet of living space on two floors plus an unfinished basement. The sellers indicate this home was extensively remodeled and brought up to current code in 1988. Since then the dwelling, which is currently occupied by a caretaker, has had a new roof, a new furnace installed and new appliances. The electrical system was upgraded in 2009. These upgrades include a new meter base, weather head and wiring to the electric panel. The detached two car garage was replaced in 1988.
Additional buildings include two loft barns, two machine sheds, two general purpose buildings, a pump house and several multipurpose buildings. Most of these buildings are near in age to the home and in a reasonable state of repair.
Irrigation: There is a certificated water right (Certificate # 24210) for 27 acres from Butte Creek, with an established point of diversion on Butte Creek and a priority date of April 25, 1951. In addition here is also a water right permit (G-13700) for 49.3 acres of primary and 42 acres of supplemental water rights. However, this permit was issued in the name of the current tenant farmer and the lease calls for the tenant to have the right to apply to the State of Oregon Water Resource Department to move these rights when the lease expires. An irrigation well, which is the point of diversion for this permit, is located on the adjacent property which belongs to the tenant. All buyers are urged to consult with a qualified water rights examiner regarding the water rights that are available on this property.
A review of the Oregon Water Resources Department well logs indicates that a domestic well (Well Log # 2194) was drilled in September 1988 to a depth of 194 feet and pump tested when drilled to yield 15 gpm.
Remarks: This is a very picturesque farm located near the quaint town of Mt. Angel, Oregon. It has top quality soils and may have irrigation available. The home is sound and the other buildings still have considerable utility left in them. This property would make an excellent Hazelnut operation or any number of other agricultural ventures. It should also be noted that this property is currently subject to a first right of refusal by the tenant. Contact agent for additional information.
