Situated on 2.10 acres on what has been called the "most prominent location" in the valley, the historic Frank Bybee house, circa 1887 is being offered for sale at the recently reduced price of $585,000. The property is zoned RR-5 making it a wonderfully unique opportunity with unlimited potential and options. Many of the permitted options include winery, vineyard, day spa, veterinary clinic, B & B, art studio, art retreat to name a few. There are also options for livestock. Buyer to do Due Diligence.
The property, located on Jacksonville Highway, is situated at the "Y" of Medford, Jacksonville and Central Point. Thanks to mature landscaping and a well placed "studio" building and garage, the property has a very private feel. Should you desire more exposure for your business, simply dropping a few of the boundary trees will open the space up for more visibility.
Another wonderful attribute of its location is the rural location within minutes of all of the city needs! You are literally 2 minutes from Jacksonville, 15 minutes from the Rogue Valley International Airport, 15 minutes from Rogue Valley Hospital which is the leader in cardiac care in this region, 5 minutes from two major grocery stores, walking distance to the finest tasting strawberries your mouth will ever experience as well as a "farmer's market" type of store, White's Country Market, and should you need help or information on gardening, you are within walking distance of the OSU Extension Office and Master Gardeners. Major entertainment awaits you with the Craterian Theater in Medford, Britt Festivals in Jacksonville, OSF in Ashland, among the many local and regional theaters nearby.
You'll find updates with clean lines while still maintaining the history, character and charm of the home including original wood floors and high wood ceilings.

The Master is on First Level with access to grounds and gardens. There are two large bedrooms upstairs with their own adjoining bathrooms and nice views.
