CASCADE VIEW PROPERTIES
Includes: Columbia Pine Ridge Ranch, Sugarman Fields and Columbia View
2185.2 Acres, Offered at $2,950,000
An extraordinary group of properties located above the mighty Columbia River, between Lake Brewster and Lake Pateros – offering exclusive privacy, unlimited opportunities for residences, both high-end or getaway cabins, with short driving proximity to Washington’s two world-famous recreational areas, Lake Chelan and Methow Valley.
This property also offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for land appreciation as it is priced for today’s market but will inevitably be included in the highly-sought after recreational region becoming progressively more attractive as world-class fishing, golfing, hiking, and horseback riding springs up around these communities –driving up values while maintaining secluded privacy.
Exclusive opportunity to control your own living environment for an incredibly reasonable price – with bonus reasonable tax rates and minimal regulation.
For the sophisticated agricultural developer with access to financial and organization resources: an historic opportunity for large scale, high elevation cherry production. Roughly 1,000 acre potential among the three properties. In the event, this development could rival the famous Wenatchee Heights cherry production.
Seclusion, yet spectacular views of the Columbia River Valley and the North Cascade snow capped mountains. Ideal for a PRIVATE RETREAT, HUNTING CLUB, HORSE RIDING CLUB, OR PRIVATE ESTATE TO BUILD YOUR DREAM HOME.
All three properties are contiguous with a valley-wide WDFW public preserve in historic Central Ferry Canyon, making a total in excess of 3000 acres available to owners. This neighboring public preserve guarantees the area will never be developed.
This never-before offered family owned Estate sits Majestically on the Northwest slope of a Mountain Ridge gently sloping towards the mighty Columbia River Valley below with spectacular views of the snow-capped Northern Cascade Mountain Range. Near where the Methow River flows into the Columbia River to the south and where the famous Okanogan River flowing out of Canada empties into the Columbia River to the North. The property is blessed with natural springs, towering pines and a variety of beautiful natural foliage. Abundant wildlife abounds, including wild turkeys, deer and grouse and world class salmon fishing in the river below (the most popular river for salmon fishing outside of the Alaska territories because of the river length/depth and year-round temperature which empties into the Pacific Ocean. The access is one way in and out and there is no through traffic which insures its exclusivity and privacy. Located within easy travel distance are three major golf courses, including Gamble Sands in Brewster, Bear Mountain in Lake Chelan and Desert Springs in Orondo. Water sports, shopping and dining abound at 60-mi-long Lake Chelan, the home of nearby world class Tisillan cellars and thirty other wineries. Stehekin and North Cascades Nat’l Park lie at the north end of Lake Chelan, accessible only by boat or horse. North, about 60 miles, is the Canadian border.
The properties are situated close to the entrance to the Methow Valley River which leads to Winthrop, location of the most extensive horse/bike trails, cross-country skiing & snowmobiling in the State. New wineries featuring dining, view cabins and entertainment are being built as we speak; notably On Point Winery on Brewster Flats to complement the already first-class facility at Gamble Sands golf course nearby. Many patrons fly into the 4000 ft runway in Brewster and are shuttled to the golf course.
The property is ideal for a private ranch estate, retreat or great location for a private hunting club, as well. It is unique in its view location with access to amenities.
The Columbia Pine Ridge Ranch (Campbell) property offers absolutely unique privacy - having no private or public access from populated areas below – there’s one way in from above, easily controlled.
Sugarman Fields (Sugarman) and Columbia View (Housden) both border 365-day maintained Douglas County gravel roads with 15-min access to Hwy 97. Building on one of these properties while leaving Columbia Pine Ridge Ranch as an undeveloped horseback or hunting paradise would provide owners with a one-in-a-million geographical control of their own environment
This is a rare opportunity, as there are no properties available with these unique qualities in Washington, nor will there be in the future. These properties have been off the market for decades and it is unlikely anything like them will be offered collectively ever again.

COLUMBIA PINE RIDGE RANCH
One of the most physically beautiful properties in the world – now available. Located in rolling forested hills, rimrock meadows and open range this property has it all: unobstructed picturesque views of the mighty Columbia and snow-capped Cascade Mountains, artesian water, beautiful homestead sites surround by majestic Pine and deciduous vegetation, abundant and diverse wildlife from Mule Deer to upland game birds, Golden and Bald Eagles - to the rare moose or elk. It enjoys the clear, clean Eastern Washington climate, unparalleled opportunities for clear star-gazing for the amateur astronomer - and warm drier temperatures so loved by visitors from the coast.
The property is contiguous with apprx 1000 acres of Washington State land as are the other two Cascade View properties, combined over 3000 acres are available for recreational activities.
Snowmobiling, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing are unlimited in this private paradise. For the hunter or horseback rider, similarly unlimited opportunities for private recreation.
The opportunities for private fulfilling lives are extraordinary, in an environment of low taxation and minimal regulation – yet close enough to exciting recreational areas like the Methow river, world-class golf courses, famous fishing runs and Lake Chelan to create a unique and private lifestyle without isolation. It is not only a great lifestyle play but also a unique investment opportunity offering huge upside land appreciation potential as Eastern Washington recreational services expand
An attractive and accessible series of Alpine-like meadows with a sprinkling of Pine trees on the south (upper) end of the property. An original homestead with remnants of original buildings, at one time Sugarman held a 10-acre high-elevation Bing Cherry orchard. From season to season a sub-irrigated marshy area shows off wild roses and attracts unique and diverse species of birds. With areas of rich topsoil, some acreage is currently farmed for canola, sunflowers and wheat. The property has relatively permanent populations of Mule deer and multiple game bird species. It also attracts multitudes of migratory birds over the course of a season. The entrance crosses Washington State Game Dept land via an established easement from a well-maintained Douglas County road to offer privacy yet convenient access, roughly 20 easy minutes to Hwy 97. This would be a beautiful place for a residence or getaway cabin and dovetails gracefully with apprx 1000 acres of WDFW land contiguous with the other two private properties also offered at this time. Either alone as a beautiful residence or combined with the other Cascade View properties this is a one-in-a-lifetime purchase opportunity. It would also offer a unique high-elevation Cherry location to the resourceful ag developer. Fantastic land appreciation play.
A series of rolling hills with a seasonal lake in classical Eastern Washington rangeland. With breathtaking views in every direction, proximity to the Methow and Lake Chelan recreational areas as well as private hunting, horseback and lifestyle opportunities it is absolutely unique. The property would be a great site for a permanent residence or getaway cabin, offering unapparelled privacy but also access to amenities, medical services etc, a 15-min drive to Hwy 97. Nothing like this has been on the market in decades nor will be soon again. The property at one time raised a family of homesteaders, remnants of which homestead are still on the property. Well-known as a great place to snowmobile or hunt it also would serve as a great venue for snowshoeing, cross-country skiing or snowmobiling. This property borders the well-maintained Central Ferry Canyon county road but also offers complete and inviolable privacy from populated areas below. Its neighbors are predominately a large private conservation owner to the west that covers 11,000 acres all the way to the Columbia River and Washington State to the East, virtually guaranteeing little or no development anywhere near this property in the foreseeable future. The adjoining Washington State land is also contiguous with the other two Cascade View properties. Apprx 300 acres are currently farmed for Canola, wheat and sunflower rotations. Either alone or in combination with the other two Cascade View properties this is an opportunity that only comes along once in a lifetime. Finally, this property and all three Cascade View properties offer a unique land appreciation play as Eastern Washington recreational services expand rapidly at an historic rate.
