Location and Area
One of California's hidden treasures is northern California's Shasta Valley. The valley lies at an elevation of 2,600 feet just south of the Oregon border and is predominantly cattle ranching and hay production. The high mountains surrounding the valley provide the summer water for irrigation of the area's lush pastures and fields. Streams and creeks flowing through the valley are tributaries to the mighty Klamath River. The spectacular scenery is dominated by the dramatic Mount Shasta which rises to 14,000 feet and is snowcapped all year with glaciers on the Shasta Valley side
The small alpine village of Mt. Shasta is 30 minutes from Lava Lakes Ranch. Reminiscent of the early ski towns of Colorado, the town has fine restaurants, art galleries and quaint boutique shops. Mt. Shasta's thriving health food market and restaurant serve as a favorite community gathering site. The city of Yreka with a population of 8,000 is also about 30 minutes away and is the shopping hub of the valley with supermarkets, restaurants and outlets. Three modern cities with all amenities are 1 ½ hours from the ranch: Redding (south of the ranch), Medford (north of the ranch) and Klamath Falls (northeast of the ranch). The town of Ashland, Oregon, well known for its Shakespeare festival, is less than one hour north of the ranch.
Lava Lakes Ranch is 20 minutes from two airports: Weed Airport is accessible for small planes with a 5000' x 60' runway at 2,938' and the Siskiyou County Airport, originally built for the military, has a 7940' x 150' runway at 2,648 elevation. For commercial service, Redding has commuter flights to San Francisco provided by SkyWest and United Express. Medford supports flights to all parts of the country and is serviced by Alaska, United, Allegiant and Delta.
The imposing 14,063 sq.ft. Main House was built on a grand scale with huge vaulted ceilings, exposed hewn log interiors, massive view windows and a roof lined with solar panels. Built of Tennessee white pine square-cut logs, the nine bedroom, ten bath residence overlooks Barton Lake, one of seven lakes on the property. Stone and wood floors throughout the house lead to bedrooms with porches and decks, inviting gathering spaces and cozy rooms with privacy. An extensive water treatment system, backup generator, huge solar display and attached greenhouse attest to the mindful energy efficiency that went into building the estate. Surrounded by nature and accessed via a gated and private road, the main house offers the utmost seclusion.
Olander House Complex The Olander House complex is approximately one mile from the estate and includes the original ranch home, a guest house with a covered carport entry, a separate two-car garage, two small horse barns and a shop/hay storage building.
Olander House This two-story, 4,200 sq.ft. home has three bedrooms and three baths. Built in the late 1980s, this home has a thoughtful layout and is situated on a part of the ranch that overlooks the meadows and has stunning views of Mt. Shasta.
