This one-of-a-kind Northwest Modern home is set amidst tall trees on a half-acre lot just across the street from Oswego Lake. Designed by well-known Portland architect, James Miller, founding partner of Zaik/Miller (now Zaik/Associates,) the home was his personal residence from 1979 until 2011. Miller also designed and oversaw an extensive remodel of the home in 1996.

A handmade cedar front door marks the entrance to an open living room with tall, vaulted cedar ceilings supported by thick, exposed beams. Huge corner windows make the wooded landscape outside a part of the room, demonstrating the overall importance of nature in the design of the home. These windows also frame a peek through the leaves of the lake just across the street. The gas fireplace has a floating hearth that extends across the wall and under a large cedar cabinet originally used to store firewood. A thick cedar beam serves as a mantel over the fireplace, adding to the clean lines and sharp angles in the room.

Handscraped oak floors lead up three steps into the dining room that is partially separated from the living room by a half wall. Large picture windows overlook the back deck, engineered with wire railings that don't block the view. The room has a comfortable and casual atmosphere enhanced by its easy access to the deck for indoor/outdoor entertaining.

A tall doorway leads into the light-filled kitchen where a huge greenhouse window makes the changing Portland seasons the ever-changing backdrop. The warm cedar cabinets are original to the house and have aged into a mellow glow. Stainless steel appliances, including a Dacor cooktop, double ovens and French door refrigerator, create a nice contrast to the earthy cedar. The granite counters provide ample workspace and the breakfast bar is a perfect spot for a cup of coffee. The greenhouse window also has a convenient pass through to the deck for food and drinks. The large laundry/project room is across the hall as is access to the two-car garage and the attached artist studio.

The master suite is comfortably situated on the opposite end of the main floor, creating a serene and separate space. The peaceful bedroom includes space for a quiet sitting area or reading nook and the ensuite has a frameless shower and a large closet with built-in storage and organization. The private covered hot tub is also accessed via the ensuite.

Up a half-flight of stairs is a cozy loft that overlooks the living room and shares its beautiful cedar tongue and groove ceiling. This room can function well as a family room, den or study and has a large skylight as well as windows that frame the view up in the trees. Also on this level are two guest bedrooms that share a hall bath. From the loft, three more steps lead up to an office and a second master suite. The office space includes a built in desk and plenty of space for tall bookcases. The second master has a lovely view of the wooded surroundings of the property from above, a walk-in closet and ensuite bath.

This home is beautifully situated in one of Lake Oswego's most sought after neighborhoods close to impressive local schools and the vibrant downtown. The Lake Oswego lifestyle includes many delicious restaurants and shopping as well as community events and a summer Farmer's Market at Millennium Plaza. But the true prize of living in the area is access to the lake via deeded easements. This home includes access to the nearby Springbrook easement which includes a swimming dock, boat dock, BBQ, picnic tables and a gazebo as well as racks for kayaks.
