A unique property for sale in Redmond, Oregon, for $825,000 and has grabbed the attention of a popular real estate Facebook page.
Geologists rejoice: A property known as the historic Petersen Rock Garden and Museum, which was constructed from 1936-1952, is here to charm a new owner. The estate, which is a total of 12 acres, “has been a quintessential staple of the Central Oregon landscape for many generations and is for sale for the first time ever,” the listing on Zillow.com says.
According to the listing, the property includes:
The rock garden
Cinder parking lot
And the rock garden is something else completely, judging by the photos.
The listing says the property once was an attraction “visited by thousands of people from all over the world.”
It also turned heads on Zillow Gone Wild, as real estate fans were intrigued by the residences and its vivid rock formations.
“This brings, ‘want to see my rock collection,’ to a whole new level!” one person said.
“While this property was taken for granite and had some rocky times, it’s time to be boulder and take advantage of this stone-cold bargain!” another joked.
“You can not possibly grasp the actual awesomeness of this amazing place,” one person gushed. “I love, love, love this place. It is so amazing in person. The detail, the design.”
“Such a magical place,” someone said. “Spent many lovely Central Oregon rainy afternoons there. The old 50s diner on the grounds is pretty awesome, too. Just needs love and care to bring it back.”
“I grew up going here on the weekends,” one person commented. “I think in part it has a lot to do with my love of geology. Wish I could buy this part of my childhood right now. Hope it goes to a local buyer and they keep the place open.”
“But do I get all the rocks? Cause that’s my 8 year old’s dream house,” another asked.
Redmond is about 126 miles east of Eugene.
