Nestled alongside the Tualatin River just as it passes under Fields Bridge, this gorgeous, custom-designed and built estate encompasses over 470 feet of river frontage on one of the most appealing yet lesser-known waterways in the state. Designed in an appealing combination of Prairie School and French Country architecture by internationally acclaimed designer Mike Barclay and built by Peterson Custom Homes, this single-story home is built for entertaining friends and family. Situated on over four acres of land, this estate offers the space to relax and gather Indoors and out.

The homeowners worked closely with Barclay to design a home that brings the outdoors inside with gorgeous views of the river and lush Pete’s Mountain from every window. The outdoors extends inside in the literal sense with a Douglas fir barrel ceiling that starts outside the front door and continues inside to the foyer. Underfoot are radiant heated 10-inch rift and quarter-sawn white oak hardwood floors sourced from Vermont Plank Flooring. Harvested from trees owned by three generations of family, the planks are custom-milled for each individual customer.

The great room layout is open, intended for entertaining with a carefully-considered casually elegant design. The living room includes a Rumford 1500 wood-burning fireplace with a solid limestone surround. The firebox features both a screen and a glass window for use as desired. The built-in entertainment cabinet can be custom configured and closed off when not in use. Four Dolby Atmos speakers are built into the ceiling for home theater sound and surround sound speaker wiring is present in the speaker cabinets.

The chef’s kitchen includes a separate coffee, wine bar and butler’s pantry with a Miele dishwasher, Sub-Zero beverage and freezer drawers and a 113-bottle wine cooler. The beautiful cabinetry is a combination of Farrow and Ball Teresa Green-painted and finished Sepele custom-built by Oregon Custom Cabinets. German hardware and high-end color-correct LED under cabinet lighting enhance their beauty. The central island includes a raised Sepele breakfast bar and an Iranian granite countertop with a leathered finish. The appliances are top-of-the-line including a commercial-grade Miele induction cooktop, steam oven and convection oven, a second Miele dishwasher and a cabinet-front Sub-Zero refrigerator with two freezer drawers.

The large, custom-built Douglas fir beams that span the kitchen and dining room were crafted by award-winning Arrow Timber Framing. The post and beam are not only a show-stealing element, it’s structural with expert joinery and timeless style. The great room’s large windows and sliding doors overlook the back of the property and the curve of the river below. Just outside is the fantastic covered patio and outdoor kitchen that might just be the most popular spot in the house. The paver patio is vaulted with rustic beams, built-in heaters and speakers. The kitchen area includes a Lynx grill and pizza oven, True refrigerator drawers and a sink. The property between the patio and the river is terraced with enough space for a pool. A gentle slope leads down to the river where there is a floating dock and a gazebo cantilevered over the river.

A breezeway leads to the finished garage that is currently in use as a bonus room. With a wood plank ceiling and polished concrete floors, this fully-insulated space has heat and air conditioning making it an ideal spot for an art studio, home gym, bonus room, or a garage to pamper vehicles. The space also includes a quarter bath. One of the three sets of Portland Carriage Company outswing carriage doors has an automatic opener and the other two are wired for future installation. A spacious mudroom with a built-in bench and shoe storage leads back inside.

Throughout the home, custom Sepele millwork handcrafted by Creative Woodworking NW gently curves with the bullnose-edged, smooth finish walls painted Farrow and Ball Clunch No. 2009. Arched entryways and a hallway with built-in art ledges lead to two spacious ensuite bedrooms and the peaceful primary suite. A custom-tinted Venetian plaster accent wall elevates the primary bedroom. With a beautiful river view and an inviting private patio, the primary suite is a perfect retreat. The ensuite bath features a deluxe clawfoot soaking tub, heated travertine floors and a walk-in closet with custom cabinetry. The spacious home office is located nearby and includes a built-in Sepele desk crafted by Creative Woodworking NW.

The property also includes an accessory building perfect for a yoga or art studio, craft/hobby space, or home gym. Steps from the floating dock, this could also be the perfect spot to store kayaks and canoes for easy access whenever a float is on the agenda. Paddle two miles up to the damn and swim area or bike to Fields Bridge Park for a picnic or to enjoy 19 acres of community gardens, ball fields, basketball courts, walking paths and playgrounds.

The front of the property is a flat meadow where an array of solar panels is located. Over 100 blueberry bushes are also planted here potentially earning the property a tax deferral. The fully-irrigated garden also includes raspberry bushes, an apple espalier, cherry and walnut trees. The home’s exterior is Senergy Senerflex Platinum CI Stucco with commercial-grade insulation and is warmly lit at night by landscape lighting.

Come home to this perfectly private piece of countryside just a short walk from the shopping, restaurants and community events of Historic Willamette Main Street including the popular Wednesday Farmer’s Market. Take a 15-minute drive to the Lake Oswego Farmer’s Market on the weekend and get everything you need for brunch overlooking the river. Vacation where you live and chose your own adventures on this slice of heaven in West Linn.
