High atop a hill on 11 acres in beautiful West Linn, Oregon, sits this palatial residence where you'll savor incredible views of the southern landscape while enjoying 10,446 sq. feet of custom designed interior space.
A short drive from downtown West Linn, Lake Oswego and the highway, through a private gated entry, make your way up a winding drive past the property's creek, meadow and manicured lawn and gardens to the sprawling parking area and grand entrance to the contemporary stucco home.
Wide, arched steps lead to the circular, columned entry where soaring, carved wood doors sit center to the many tall windows that span the front of the home. Before even entering, guests will have a feel for the grand spaces that await inside.
Open the doors and step inside to the elegant foyer where a gorgeous crystal chandelier draws your eyes up to the dark wood molding that creates a three-tiered coved ceiling. The gorgeous marble floor with its brass inlay leads you across the foyer to French doors that open to sprawling back patio and gardens.
To the right of the foyer, tall archways frame the home's formal living room. Floor-to-ceiling windows flood the room with light and give outstanding views of the front gardens and hills beyond. The dark wood molding around the ceiling is continued here and complements the mantle above the granite, gas fireplace.
Across the foyer is the home's formal dining room. The dining room shares the same archways, tall front window and coved, wood ceiling design as the living room, creating a symmetric feel to the front of the home. The large room fits the scale of the home and makes a beautiful entertaining space - easily fitting a table that seats 12+ guests under two stunning crystal chandeliers.
A few steps down the marble corridor is the gourmet kitchen. Hardwood floors, dark, solid wood custom cabinets with crystal hardware, and tan-toned granite counters and backsplash warm this open kitchen. The lengthy granite island has casual seating for six and features a six-burner flat-top Dacor cooktop. Stainless steel appliances - including two Dacor ovens, two warming drawers, two Viking dishwashers, a trash compactor, microwave, and oversized, Sub-Zero double door refrigerator - will make even the most discriminating cooks ecstatic!
Open between the kitchen and family room is a casual eating area. Tall windows and doors that lead to patio make this a sunny spot for family dining.
Hardwood floors extend from the kitchen into the family room. A stone fireplace and built-in media cabinets create relaxing space for family and friends to lounge.
A dark wood archway in the corner of the room frames the entry to the beautiful custom bar. Dark cabinets, granite counters, a wood ceiling, mirrored shelving, a Viking ice machine, refrigerator, and curved bar top create the feeling of being in an English pub. A large window over the sink looks into the adjacent sunroom and brings wonderful light into the small alcove.
French doors lead from the family room to an enclosed sunroom with travertine tile floors. This space currently house additional cooking facilities; however, the room could easily be renovated to create an outdoor kitchen that opens to the spacious back patio. On the far end of the sunroom are doors that lead through the master bath to the breathtaking indoor swimming pool.
Continuing on this end of the home is a den and one of two master suites. The den has beautiful views of the hills and a wall of cabinetry that exemplifies the exceptional craftsmanship that went into the building of this home. The desk portion of the cabinetry slides to reveal the door of a hidden room that houses the home's mechanical systems for lighting, security, phone, and electrical.
Down the hall from the den is a 900+ sq. foot master suite - a stunning private retreat far from the rest of the home's bedrooms. Windows on one end of the room offer views of the southern hills while bay windows on the other side look out over private side gardens. A built-in bureau and media cabinet have granite tops and crystal hardware adding to the sophisticated feel of the space. French doors open to the grand en suite bath that features rich hardwood floors, his and hers vanities with curved fronts and distinctive finishes like a crystal chandelier above the jetted tub, crystal hardware, gold faucets, and gold inlayed sinks.
The dressing area, past the walk-in closet and spacious shower, leads to the indoor swimming pool.
With three sets of French doors that lead out to the back patio, this incredible indoor swimming pool and its wonderful amenities will become one of the most loved spaces in your home. No matter what the weather, you and your guests can enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool or a soak in the hot tub that's tucked between columns and surrounded by bay windows. Windows soar from floor to ceiling to roof, flooding the solarium with light no matter the season. Tiles with a Greek key design surround the pool and a mural on the far wall brings a Mediterranean flair to the space. A small kitchen with a Sub-Zero refrigerator and full bath round out this fabulous entertaining area.
On the opposite end of the home are private spaces where family and guests can find quiet solitude. Through the foyer and past the stairs to the lower level, you'll find a second den, a guest bedroom and a bath. The den has windows on three sides with views of the front gardens and hills, hardwood floors, and beautiful built-in cabinets with custom lighting, shelves and a plethora of storage.
Across the hall through tall French doors is a cozy guest bedroom. The walls angle into a unique curved design and windows look out to the back patio. The guest bath can be accessed through both the bedroom as well as the hall.
At the end of the hall is the second master suite. This master has a spacious main bedroom and a 130+ sq. ft bonus room that would make a wonderful nursery, private library or lounge. The en suite bath has a more modern feel than the rest of the home with its white tile floor, contemporary cabinets, and granite counters and tub surround.
A wide staircase leads down to the home's lower level where you'll find two bonus rooms, a wine cellar, large storage closet, two guest bedrooms, and a guest bath. Each bedroom has tall windows that look out over the manicured lawns bringing in fabulous sunlight.
Behind nondescript doors at the end of the hall is an amazing, sound proof theater room. Double doors open to the theater snack bar where granite-topped cabinets are perfect for housing a popcorn machine and other movie-time goodies. Around the corner are two rows of tiered seating that face a raised stage. Pull the red curtains back to reveal the screen where you can show movies on the built-in 3-D movie projection system.
The 9,200+ sq. feet of living and entertaining space inside the main house is fabulous, but this residence has even more to offer. The back patio, which can be accessed through the foyer, family room, sunroom, and pool, is surrounded rock retaining walls and gorgeous manicured gardens. This fabulous outdoor entertaining area has plenty of room for multiple sitting, lounging and dining areas.
Connected to the main house by a breezeway, a 1,200+ sq. foot guesthouse sits above the home's second garage (there's garage space for eight vehicles throughout the property). Head up a sandstone tile stairway to the one bedroom apartment complete with full kitchen, living room, bedroom, bath, and patio that overlooks the back property. Use for this space is limitless!
The 11-acre property is fully fenced and has walking trails that lead down to the meadow and creek as well as up to the peak of the land where you get 360-degree views of the Willamette Valley. The level of craftsmanship in the design and construction of the home is unsurpassed while living and entertaining options abound! This is an absolutely unbelievable property that must be seen to truly appreciate!
