Last year, Patrick Duffy’s longtime Oregon ranch hit the open market for $14 million. Even though the price was later reduced to $11 million, the picturesque property never found a buyer, so the Dallas star is now auctioning off the compound to the highest bidder.
Spanning about 330 acres, the so-called Duffy Ranch is located outside of Medford in the city of Eagle Point and will go under the hammer from December 7th until the 14th in a no-reserve auction. According to Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions, who will be handling the sale, starting bids are expected to be in the $3 million to $5 million range.

The TV legend, who starred alongside pop culture icon Suzanne Somers in the family sitcom Step by Step, has owned the Staley Road residence for over 30 years. Duffy and his late wife, Carlyn Rosse, bought the home in 1990 for $1.5 million. “It was pristine,” he told Mansion Global. “There was no paved road. There were some trails through the woods and about a mile—a little less than a mile—of river frontage.”
Together, they spent $3 million and the better part of two decades buying up surrounding properties to expand their compound and began living there full time in the early 2000s. Today, the ranch is made up of nine separate parcels, which include two homes, two guest cabins, a recreation pond, and two miles of Rogue River frontage. “The river is the only reason that we considered buying this property,” Duffy said in a video posted to the Sotheby’s Concierge Auctions website, which you can check out below.
The main house dates back to the 1950s and resembles a traditional lodge—there’s a screened porch and everything. The home sits on a whopping 79 acres of land with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and roughly 3,000 square feet of living space. Plus, you’ll find a wood-burning fireplace, hardwood floors, and wood beam ceilings inside. What’s surprising is that it also includes an art gallery, in addition to a wine cave and a spa cabin. Elsewhere, the couple also converted one of the outbuildings into an indoor lap pool.
In 2022, Duffy told Mansion Global that he’d like to relocate to California or Colorado. Currently, his sourdough starter business, Duffy’s Dough, is based in the Centennial State.
