Come home to dazzling luxury and timeless design where jaw-dropping panoramic views of the serene beauty of the Pacific Northwest are the backdrop to daily life. Perched on the coveted hillside of the Skylands neighborhood in Lake Oswego, this spectacular contemporary estate boasts the commanding backdrop of majestic Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, and Mt. Adams, inviting you to immerse yourself in natural beauty.

From the soaring ceilings to the expansive windows, this home is meticulously designed on a grand scale to create an elevated aesthetic where friends and family will love to gather. Enjoy effortless luxury inside and out with entertaining options for everything from grand events to easy hanging out on multiple patios year-round.

The sweeping front drive spans the broad expanse of the home, where crisp, white, board-and-batten siding coupled with cultured stone sets the stage. Step inside the custom Marvin double front doors to take in the awe-inspiring panoramic view from the living room’s window walls. Light-toned British Oak hardwoods extend throughout the open floorplan, perfectly designed for entertaining on large and intimate scales and effortlessly elegant everyday life. The living room’s soaring ceiling-height stone fireplace surround, anchored on both sides by built-in bookcases, draws attention to the 14-foot ceilings of this show-stopping space. Three classically minimalist, multi-tiered chandeliers gracefully illuminate the room. Throughout the home, white walls with thick base and crown molding complement French grey accents, including doors, wainscoting, and built-in bookshelves. The view is truly the star of the show, stretching as far as the eye can see.

The gourmet kitchen is centered around a large central island topped in creamy quartz with ample space for seating. This kitchen has a place for everything in the gorgeous custom cabinetry designed with clever and abundant storage and organization features, including double pantry pullouts flanking the refrigerator and multiple trash/recycling pullouts. Top-of-the-line appliances include a six-burner plus griddle Wolf range with dual ovens and a convenient pot filler, a cabinet-front Sub-Zero refrigerator, two Miele dishwashers, and a built-in coffee station. The mosaic tile ceiling-height backsplash adds texture and movement to this sleek and welcoming space. The adjacent sunny breakfast nook is the perfect spot for coffee, with a view framed by four sets of windows. A contemporary tiered drum pendant adds elegance and a soft glow to the cozy space.

Outside, the covered patio is ideal for year-round use, with built-in heaters and a gas grill with easy access to the kitchen. The double-sided gas fireplace creates two seating options, one under cover and the other open under the stars. Step down to the huge deck, perfect for accommodating a large number of guests, with multiple dining tables, seating areas, and even a dance floor. Down the stairs, the newly installed, custom sport court is the perfect place to practice three-pointers with the in-ground adjustable 60″ basketball hoop or play pickleball using the retractable, in-ground net. Its specialized surface includes UV stabilizers to keep the court playable even at high temperatures with a patented Lateral Forgiveness design intended to reduce strain on joints and fatigue. This wisely designed space is tucked out of sight, allowing the patio and deck to remain the elegant focus when the situation requires.

The formal dining room overlooks the front of the property with a beautifully elevated design, including a Willamette Pearl White Fluted Chandelier from Rejuvenation, classic wainscoting, and a sleek built-in buffet with a quartz top. The nearby custom butler’s pantry was newly designed and crafted by skilled carpenters with Ashely Kiely Living and includes custom-built adjustable shelves, quartz countertops, and wall organization from Pottery Barn. Kiely, an organizer and general contractor, also worked closely with the homeowner to customize closets throughout the home, including bedrooms and an additional pantry just off the kitchen.

With a layout designed for main-floor living, the serene primary suite includes an attached, light-filled office that could also be used as a sitting room, yoga studio, or nursery with an attached full bath. The spacious bedroom features five double-height bow windows framing the spectacular mountain view. The inviting gas fireplace is crowned with a crisp, classic mantle, and a modern Visual Comfort Kelly Wearstler Rousseau Chandelier hangs above. The ensuite bath makes every day a spa experience with heated Honeycomb Bianco Veneto Dolomite + Karya Royal Honed and Polished tile floors and classically elegant French grey wainscoting. The oversized frameless glass walk-in shower has multiple heads, including a rain shower, a bench, and two shower niches with a heated towel rack in arm’s reach. A decadent, freestanding MTI soaking tub sits in a sunlit corner. The dual walk-in closets are incredibly spacious and include custom storage options. A second main-floor bedroom with a stylish ensuite bath is nearby. 

The huge family room downstairs features three sets of French doors opening to a covered, ground-floor patio and the lush yard designed by Landscape East & West beyond. This epic hangout space is large enough for a jumbo sectional sofa to pile on for movie night. Three additional oversized bedrooms, including a second primary suite, are also located on this level. 

A whopping 1,460 square feet of unfinished space presents a unique opportunity to truly tailor-make this home to suit any need. Create an indoor pool and entertaining area, a phenomenal home gym, or a spacious mother-in-law suite with a separate entrance. With this much space available, the possibilities are limitless. 

The Skylands neighborhood of Lake Oswego is known for its large estates with incredible views of the mountains and the Willamette River. Originally part of a farm owned by Marylhurst University and the Sisters of St. Mary’s, sharp eyes can still spot the original wagon road near Green Bluff Road. Less than ten minutes from downtown Lake Oswego’s boutique shopping, restaurants, and beloved Farmer’s Market, this area is secluded but, at the same time, extremely convenient. Highly-ranked Hallinan Elementary and Lakeridge Middle and High Schools are located nearby. Residents in the Hallinan School District enjoy access to the Greentree Pool, a community pool and picnic spot with gas grills, showers, and a heated pool. The turf athletic field and dog park at Hazelia Field at Luscher Farm is a four-minute drive, as is Rassekh Park, a new $5 million multi-purpose sports field, skate park, play area, and trail network slated to open at the end of 2024. The new LO Recreation and Aquatics Center at the LO Golf Course is in the same area and is expected to open in the summer of 2024.
