About 24817 SW NEWLAND PL

Whether the warm summer sun is shining or a cool autumn night is falling, the veranda is the place to be. From its roots in the architecture and culture of the American South, to its global popularity today, the veranda has the intrinsic appeal of a place to slow down and relax. The wooden rocking chairs that grace this wide veranda in Wilsonville have an undeniable pull that invites friends and family to sit back and enjoy views down the valley, a cup of tea and companionship.

Spanning five carefully-tended acres, this property is a private haven with a 5,261 sq. foot home and 2,027 sq. foot barn complete with sport court, kitchenette, bath and sitting area. The home itself is a two-story low country, southern-style manor with crisp, white cedar siding and glossy black accents. The veranda extends all the way around the home and is complete with ceiling fans to cool things down on lazy afternoons, slate floors and tongue-and-groove planked wood ceilings. Step inside the front door into the foyer where a curved staircase leads upstairs and warm natural cherry floors reflect the daylight from the sidelight windows flanking the front door.

To the left is the living room where large windows showcase the view from the front of the home across the flat grass lawn and down beyond the white fences that encompass the property to the valley that extends below. A warm gas fireplace is surrounded with tiles that gently reflect the light with a subtle metallic finish. Here, and throughout the entire home, wide crown and base molding enhances the space. Just across the foyer is the dining room where an additional layer of picture rail molding gives the space a dose of classic character completely fitting the home's touches of southern charm.

The kitchen is a perfect balance of beautiful woodwork, welcoming atmosphere and professional appliances that make it a space where people will love to gather as well as cook for the crowd. The custom natural cherry cabinetry is enhanced by hand-painted stencil work done by a local Lake Oswego artisan. The subtle designs give the room a bit of a relaxed and unfussy feeling that seems to permeate the home, making it a place where people will love to gather and create memories. The gleaming, stainless steel Viking professional appliances include double ovens, microwave, refrigerator and six-burner cooktop that sits in the large granite island. The fully-outfitted laundry room and mud room leads from the kitchen to the garage and side door. A breakfast nook sits just off to the side of the kitchen and includes more cabinetry and display space for favorite pieces. The open-concept space leads into the comfortable family room where a stone fireplace is the focal point. Slender columns help delineate the space, creating a natural walkway that leads down the hall to a home office filled with beautiful built-in bookcases. All the rooms along this side of the home feature large windows and French doors that lead out to the veranda that overlooks the fenced back yard and wooded area beyond.

Just off the kitchen is a glorious sun room and office. Sitting at the front corner of the home, this room is filled with sunlight from two walls of windows and French doors that lead out to the veranda. The built-in bookshelves and desk are enhanced by more subtle stencil and plaster work that has a slightly raised texture that gives it an almost organic appearance. Here and in most of the main floor of the house are warm, natural cherry hardwood floors. The same artisan also created custom, hand-painted floor cloths - canvas alternatives to area rugs that both protect the floors and add a unique, vintage look.

At the far end of the main floor is the serene master suite. Tumbled stone surrounds the gas fireplace and a thick mantle and bookshelves flank the sides. Double doors lead outside to a more private end of the veranda creating a perfect spot for morning coffee. The ensuite bath has a wide vanity with two sinks and loads of natural light. A large soaking tub, walk-in shower and Finlandia sauna create the perfect trifecta of soothing options for this in-home spa space. The walk-in closet has a large island with plenty of storage and a convenient bench to sit on while putting on shoes (or contemplating the perfect outfit.)

Upstairs are three bedrooms. Two of these large guest rooms share a jack-and-jill both and the third has its own ensuite. Each the rooms has its own unique characteristics, including seating areas and space for a desk. Additionally one bedroom can double as a media room and is prewired for a projector. Above the three-car garage is a flexible finished space that is separately accessed and is ideally suited to be an artist's studio, exercise room or man cave.

The grounds surrounding the home are lovingly tended and one area in particular has been transformed from a tangle of overgrown blackberry bushes into a serene wooded area where birds and deer often come to visit. Though it was a time and labor intensive job, the homeowners felt compelled to make this corner of the world a better place as part of an overall focus on building home that exudes a welcoming and friendly atmosphere inside and out.

Access to I-205 and both I-5 North and South is a quick 10 minute drive from this private, gated sanctuary in the quiet Stafford community in Wilsonville. Easy access for commuting as well as community activities in nearby Tualatin, Lake Oswego and Sherwood ensure that this quiet spot in the country doesn't feel remote, unless you want it to.
