South Fork Historic Home

Callahan, California

$230,000 | 8.98 ± Acres | Siskiyou County

PROPERTY TYPE: Homes and Cabins, Recreation


Historic charmer at the south end of Scott Valley! This 1903 farmhouse is located on 8.98 +/- acres with multiple outbuildings, including a detached studio and large pole barn with some enclosed area and a loft. The property is a classic farmyard with fruit trees and lilacs surrounding the picturesque two-story home. There is also a wood shed, small greenhouse, mid-size barn, and green meadow area completing the homestead in its pretty setting near the South Fork of the Scott River. The property also borders the Klamath National Forest and is just a short trip from the historic town of Callahan and many other recreational locations. The 2 bed, 2 bath home is 1106 sq. ft. and needs updating and modernizing. It has a partial foundation and many of its original features. It does have a wood stove insert and electric baseboard heating, as well as some newer windows. This property is a rural gem ready for your work and imagination to make it shine again!

It's only a few minutes to drive from this home to the tiny historic community of Callahan. Callahan was a gold rush town and at one time bustling with several thousand miners, but now it is a tiny community of less than 200. There is still a post office, a small church, a historic cemetery, and a bar which also serves great steaks and carries a few necessities, along with offering live music some weekends. While the Klamath National Forest is right out the back door, you can also go just up the highway to reach the edge of the Trinity Alps Mountains and the Pacific Crest Trail, and it's under an hour to Trinity Lake for water skiing and world-class small-mouth bass fishing.

If you've never been to Scott Valley, this quiet rural agricultural community has several elementary schools, a junior high, a high school, medical services, shopping, restaurants, etc. It's not far from the Siskiyou County seat of Yreka, which sports a small hospital, groceries, more shopping, and easy access to I-5 and Southern Oregon. Scott Valley is bordered by thousands of acres of timbered wilderness in the Klamath National Forest, including the Trinity Alps Wilderness, the Russian Wilderness, and the Marble Mountain Wilderness – an area known for its scenic beauty, many small lakes, fishing, hiking, packing & horseback riding, the Pacific Crest Trail, blacktail deer, and bear hunting, and hidden caves.
