Just off Highway 43 right outside Lake Oswego is a little slice of Tuscan countryside. Built in 2000, this 7,162 sq. foot home has the steep, peaked rooflines and stone facade that are the quintessential elements of a French country home. Large arched windows flanked by wooden slat board shutters are lit from above by oversized carriage lights that cast a warm glow over the stonework. A curved brick driveway sweeps across the front of the home and is secured by wrought iron gates at each end. Mature landscape with tall birch trees and huge rhododendrons line the driveway and tall Italian cypress flank the wood and glass front doors.

Inside, the home exudes a rustic warmth with beautifully textured, hand plastered walls that flow around corners and through tall curved archways. Thick wood beams crisscross vaulted ceilings and heavy iron and glass light fixtures provide additional light to spacious rooms. Italian tile floors span much of the main floor while some rooms including the dining room and office feature warm hardwood floors.

The living room is a grand space filled with natural light provided by the two large windows that flank the fireplace. The room's simple design is enhanced by the rough-hewn A-frame wood beams that span and highlight the vaulted ceilings. The beams extend down the walls to the floor on two sides of the room, adding to the rustic atmosphere. Three sets of arched French doors provide additional natural light and lead outside to the patio and pool area.

The dining room next door also features A-frame beams but here the Italian tile floor transitions to a gorgeous inlaid hardwoods that add a special touch to the space. Arched French doors lead to a patio overlooking the front yard. Just off the dining room is a wine room reminiscent of a county manor's stone wine cellar. This space is such a true work of art that it includes a viewing window with scrolling iron vines from the dining room. A spacious butler's pantry connects the dining room to the kitchen. The sink, granite counters, refrigerator and additional storage here are an entertainer's dream. Additionally, the large window over the sink serves as a pass through to the patio for outdoor parties.

The kitchen and family room are a large great room space with a sunlit casual dining area that overlooks the back yard. The kitchen is an broad, open space featuring a large island and custom finished cabinets with a rustic patina. The Dacor stove has six burners and is topped with a grand, stone Thermador hood which includes a convenient warming rack. Three dishwashers - two Fisher & Paykel drawers and a full-size Bosch make clean up a breeze. The side-by-side SubZero refrigerator/freezer is own work of art with a hand-painted French country mural on the doors. More beautiful rustic beams cross the vaulted ceiling of the great room and serve to frame the large stone fireplace that is flanked by built-in bookcases.

Also on the main floor is a serene master suite with vaulted ceilings and huge arched windows with French doors leading to the back yard. The gas fireplace is surrounded with a thick stone mantle with intricately carved corbels. The en suite bath has heated tile floors a large, frameless glass shower, dual sinks and a sumptuous soaking tub in it s own alcove. The master suite also includes a full service laundry/sewing room with built-in desk and huge walk-in closet. Just outside the master suite is a comfortable office with hardwood floors and a gas fireplace.

Upstairs on one side of the home are two bedrooms that share a large hall bath. On the opposite side of the home's second level is the guest wing. Here, a long wet bar on the landing serves both the spacious media room and an additional tv room/bonus space. Two large bedrooms complete the space.

Outside, this L-shaped home frames a large covered patio with ceiling heaters and a huge gas fireplace that is open on three sides. The brick patio extends all the way to the heated pool which is surrounded by large boulders that give it a pond-like atmosphere. A convenient pool bathroom and shower are nearby. Beyond the pool is a large grass yard perfect for pets or kicking the soccer ball.

The Riverdale neighborhood is a perfect combination of convenient commute to downtown and easy access to the entertainment, community events and outdoor recreation of Lake Oswego. Just steps from Riverdale Grade School and two miles from Riverdale High School, this is a fantastic location for a growing family.
