Klamath Falls, OR, June 07, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Next to Portland, the best city in Oregon to live isn’t Bend. It isn’t Eugene or Salem or Medford. It is Klamath Falls. That’s right, Relocate-America.com announced that Klamath Falls, Oregon, earned a spot in the best 100 places to live. Klamath Falls, near the Oregon-California border, is the home to the Oregon Institute of Technology and depends mostly on agriculture for its livelihood. Klamath Falls City Manager, Jeff Ball, said that he was pleasantly surprise by the honor. When asked what he thought was the town’s draw, he said, “We’ve got great, friendly people and beautiful country.”
Located about 12 miles from Klamath Falls, Oregon, is the resort community of the Running Y Ranch, home to the only Arnold Palmer designed golf course in Oregon. With over 3,600 acres of wooded hills and lush meadows the Running Y is considered high desert, nestled along the unspoiled edge of the Cascade Range. It boasts an average of 18 1/2 inches of precipitation and 290 days of sunshine annually. The resale market of custom homes, semi-custom homes, and town homes has created quiet a large niche market for the “over 50” group, searching for their retirement home. Another benefit is the lower cost of living than the national average.
Additionally, the quality of life in Klamath County is one of the biggest reasons people choose to move here. At the Running Y, home sites average ½ acre, yet one acre parcels are available. Views are widespread ranging from private cul-de-sac, golf course, lake, mountains, meadows and ranch or city lights. The houses are designed to blend with nature, offering the simplicity and spaciousness of resort living at its finest. Choose a type of property that fits your lifestyle- a chalet, townhome, smaller ranch style home or a larger estate size home, week-end retreat or a beautiful home for visiting family and friends.
Resale homes at Running Y represent the different design and lifestyles of their owners. The Running Y theme is to mingle nature with the home style. For more information please visit www.IliveAtTheRunningY.com
