Home Seller, Prineville, OR
Ironwood Estates is a very nice area. It's 10 miles from town on the way to Prineville Reservoir and has gorgeous views of the Cascades. Paved roads and an HOA but no HOA dues as of yet. We own a 14 acre lot there that we are selling because when we purchased it, our plan was to build on it, but then two years later, found a lot overlooking the reservoir. Since my husband liked lake views, we built on that lot. Ironwood Estates is really a nice neighborhood of new homes and friendly people. You can have horses, llamas, etc. You would need to build a home, but Adair and several other companies make affordable housing with built in equity. You might try that route if you are looking for a nice house and you have the option of designing in what you would like in a home. I know what you mean about homes being run down and shoddy in town.
