Dayton Log Home (Springtime Property Photos)

Due to a job-related relocation, we regretfully have to sell our newly purchased, beautiful, custom-built, hand-peeled log home and farm property located on 11.95 usable acres. 

We are VERY MOTIVATED sellers
and in order to expedite an immediate sale
we are asking only $295,000 (or best offer)

It is a wonderful, private country setting that is perfectly located for those interested in various outdoor pursuits (i.e. horseback riding, hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, hunting, boating, etc.); it includes a large shop for storage of boats, trailers, and the rest of your outdoor toys. The property is also outfitted with all accommodations needed for horses and/or other livestock.

We have lived in the home since only mid-November and we purchased it from the original builders/owners. The home was built from local logs in 1980. It is a very unique country set-up that has been immaculately maintained.

Although this is a country setting with ample horseback riding and outdoor recreational opportunities, the location is close enough to town for dsl internet access and it has excellent cell phone coverage. The property borders CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) land and farmland.

Because of the impending relocation, 
we are highly motivated and have priced 
the home and acreage at $295,000 (OBO) 
to accommodate a quick sale. 

This is the BEST DEAL 
in both Columbia & Walla Walla counties
for a country home with as many amenities as this one.
