Experience modern luxury and exquisite design that honors rural roots and natural building materials, while seamlessly integrating indoors and outdoors. Panoramic views, visual pathways that blend interior and exterior, and carefully selected design and material details bring delight at every turn.
This home’s warm welcome begins with an open painted cedar framework over a rustic brick path that guides you into the home through glass-paned French doors. A transom window inside the foyer gives a glimpse of the home’s rear exterior.
This U-shaped home is centered around an interior courtyard that is sheltered from the weather while offering immersion in outdoor living, dining, gardening, and gathering. French doors lead to the courtyard from all three sides of the home, and are connected by a covered porch that wraps the interior.
Just off the entry, the formal Dining Room features large, light-filled windows that maximize views of surrounding vista. Just beyond, the Living Room/Family Room is an expansive gathering space, replete with brick-front wood-burning fireplace, multiple seating areas, French doors to the courtyard, and ample windows for abundant natural light year-round.
On the other side of the entry, a generous hallway wraps around the courtyard and leads to the Kitchen, Guest Bedroom and Bath, and Master Suite. Floor-to-ceiling built-in bookcases line the corridor and ground the space with a warm feeling that is anchored by a cozy reading nook and seating area.
The gourmet chef’s Kitchen is a masterwork in and of itself, created with a farmhouse design, luxurious details, and high-end functions that make cooking and entertaining a delight. Enjoy a full wall of built in cabinetry, farmhouse sink, Wolf 6-burner range, prep sink, built-in Bosch dual convection oven, built-in Thermidor stainless steel refrigerator, stainless steel counters, and a built-in storage and serving counter that artfully pairs rustic wood and iron shelving with gorgeous polished marble and clean-lined cabinetry. Penny tile flooring and white subway tiles on the walls make the room bright and beautiful, bathed in natural light from a full wall of windows over the sink.
In the sleeping wing of the home, Guest Bedroom and hall Bath offer privacy and comfort. Master Suite anchors the third side of the courtyard, with large walk-in closet with highly functional built-ins, large bank of windows, and a gleaming Master Bath with penny tile flooring, built-in glass-front cabinets, dual vanities, and a walk-in shower with gleaming white tile.
A rustic painted cedar staircase leads to the Office/Family Room and additional guest sleeping area. Natural wood plank floors and a high, vaulted ceiling with open beams call to mind the farms that dotted the landscape in earlier generations. A comfortable seating and gathering area with built-in closet space leads to adorable stable-style sleeping areas with sliding barn doors. A shared full bath features a walk-in tile shower and a tile vanity.
Opposite the sleeping area, a spacious office/Family Room area offers plentiful space for playing, exercising, or watching movies, while extensive built-in cabinets and desks create a comfortable office area with much storage.
Outside in the courtyard, a large grape arbor supports 14 7-year-old white grape plants that provide canopy over a stunning 16’ x 2.5’ poured-in-place concrete table that seats 16. A white painted cedar rail fence surrounds the outdoor areas. A path around the back and side of the home leads from the courtyard to the garden area with raised garden beds and custom-built greenhouse on south side of home.
Large three-car Garage features Carriage House Wood Collection doors that hearken back to an earlier time and complete the timeless, historic feel of this modern Farmhouse. Utility Room/Butler’s Pantry is large and accommodating, with laundry and a wine refrigerator, plus ample built-in storage and plentiful natural light. Exterior door hardware is a durable finished bronze. Windows are Sierra pacific wood with aluminum clad exteriors.
Just a short drive from Interstate 5 and minutes from Downtown Portland, Downtown Vancouver, Downtown Ridgefield, and Portland International Airport, this home transports you miles away from the hustle and bustle, with easy access to everything.
