Charming and rustic, wood-paneled, 4,000 sq ft home, located within Pacifica: A Garden in the Siskyous. Huge deck overlooking Heron Pond and mountains is furnished in nostalgic 70's style, reminiscent of when rock musician Steve Miller lived here.

The space
Grandly situated on the shore of Heron Pond, this truly beautiful house is set in an iconic 500 acre forest/meadow nature center. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in Oregon for its architectural significance:
• 1860’s land grant homestead
• 1940’s cutting edge architecture,
• 1970’s home of rock musician Steve Miller (“Fly Like an Eagle”),
• 1999 center piece residence at Pacifica Garden, non-profit educational nature center.
There may be hikers in the vicinity as the Pond House is located within a park-like property. More information is available about Pacifica and the rich history of this stunning property. Get in touch with any questions!
