Welcome to Casa de la Nueva Vida, an exquisite residence perched majestically above the sprawling Rogue Valley. This California-style modern marvel boasts awe-inspiring vistas of the Siskiyou Mountains and offers convenient access to a plethora of exceptional outdoor adventures.

Brought to life by the visionary duo of Nisha Jackson and Michael Woods starting in 2020, this extraordinary estate is a testament to their inspired collaboration. Every detail of this unique sanctuary, from the main residence to the guest house, arboretum, two-level artisan studio, and the enviable outdoor entertainment area featuring a pool, outdoor kitchen-lounging cabana, and putting green, has been meticulously crafted to perfection. The estate received national recognition in 2023 as one of the winners at the Hardscape North America Awards Ceremony that honored top contractors, producers, and designers in 2023. The exterior aesthetic, characterized by neutral white stucco, sleek geometrical lines, elegant black finishes, and the interplay of tile and textured stone, harmoniously blends with the lush surroundings. Elevated above the verdant expanse of the Rogue Valley, this sustainable property not only offers ample space for guests and family but also serves as a haven for those seeking a life inspired by beauty and tranquility.

The front door of the main home opens to the splendor of exquisite design and the rapture of a jaw-dropping view. Custom-designed 15-foot floor-to-ceiling windows comprise the far wall of an expansive open-plan living space, and frame a breathtaking panorama of the stunning Siskiyou Mountains and the Rogue Valley. The subtle use of feng shui creates a feeling of being perfectly situated inside, while enjoying a direct visual connection to the outdoors – a beautiful harmony that balances the privacy of home and the magnificence of the natural environment. The grand living space is dazzling with high ceilings and enough space for two charming indoor swings to flirt with the view.

To the right, an ample living room area focuses around a floor-to-ceiling, wood-burning fireplace framed by two large windows. In the center of the space, a dining table for ten is invitingly bathed in natural light. On the left is a beautifully-appointed open kitchen with reflective, geometrically-patterned tile and a long marble island that creates a glorious entertainment space and stage for cooking and cocktail-crafting. A custom-built, walnut breakfast bar with seating for six, extends the island further. Blue décor, ceiling beams, hints of crystal and a hardwood floor, provide texture, breath and movement, and a dynamic balance of the elements in this spectacular living space. The open floor plan extends further to a generous covered balcony with an outdoor gas firepit and ample room for dining and entertaining. The covered veranda is intentionally designed to use the positioning of the sun year-round to maximize natural heating and cooling.

To the right of the terrace, a wall of paned glass connects the main living space to a beautiful office, also surrounded with windows that allow a flood of natural light to pour into the main living area. Close the glass office door and enjoy an incredible sense of spaciousness, while maintaining privacy in this airy workspace that provides enough room for two large desks, a meeting table and chairs, and ample bookshelves. Inspiration awaits!

To the left of the terrace lies the master bedroom. Floor-to-ceiling curtains on the glass doors provide instant privacy. Created as a mini-get-away for anytime, massive floor-to-ceiling windows wrap around a 16-foot velvet headboard, allowing a marriage of the outside world with this intimate interior space. A gas fireplace and a built-in flat screen TV provide warmth and entertainment. In the mornings, watch the sun rise over the mountains.

Heated marble floors lead from the master bedroom to a glamorous master bath that dazzles in high style with large mirrors, black and white appointments, and a show-stopping selection of intricate tile and stone that maximizes visual appeal with color, texture and shape. The master bath boasts beautiful views with a free-standing tub for two, a double walk-in shower, and large vanity areas with counter to ceiling mirrors. All bathroom floors are heated and programmable. Two private bidet toilet rooms and two massive walk-in closets with built-in shelving and drawers, create a sense of personal luxury.

The main living area also enjoys a full bath near the front entrance and a separate meditation room that features a colorful mural and views of the greenhouse and entryway through large windows. A second well-appointed and beautiful designed kitchen provides a luxurious facility for catering to support extraordinary entertaining. The second kitchen connects to the laundry room and three-car garage, providing easy access and maximum convenience.

An interior staircase near the front entrance leads to the lower floor, which features two ensuite bedrooms with full baths, a baby nursery, and a second meditation room that opens to a private courtyard with a waterfall. The private and meticulously-designed guest suites center around sweeping views of the vanishing pool and the valley, and an open-plan living space, that features a custom poker table, a professional size pool table, and a living room media area with a gas fireplace and flat screen TV with surround sound. On one side is a beautiful full open kitchen; on the other side a luxurious full bar. Inspired by Jackson’s experience as the founder and owner of a vineyard and winery, a climate-controlled, glass-walled wine room sits aside a cozy tasting area. A work-out gym, overlooking the vanishing pool and Mount Ashland, features full wall windows and mirrors, a TV and a padded floor big enough for yoga with friends. After a robust workout, enjoy the steam shower and outdoor luxury Swedish sauna.

The outdoor amenities include a massive infinity edge pool with fountain features, a Baja edge for lounge soaking, and fire bowls. An exterior staircase leads to the terrace above, fostering a clear sense of continuity between the two expansive levels of the home. Next to the pool is a covered outdoor kitchen, dining and living room area, with open air walls, kitchen, wood-burning fireplace and 15-foot wood bar overlooking the pool’s edge. Two gates in the railing around the pool level, open up to allow for “chipping” into the putting green on the lower level below. The private walking path passes by the home’s large dog run, a mini orchard, and encircles the entire property. A courtyard between the home and guest house creates a natural, elegant separation. Fully equipped with a kitchen, two bathrooms, laundry, living room and fireplace, the guest house provides privacy and self-containment, while honoring your guests with beautiful design and gracious hospitality.

Keeping with the concept of self-sustainability, a gorgeous glass 18 x 41 foot climate-controlled arboretum/greenhouse with 15-foot ceilings was designed for year-round growing, retreats, and full-moon dinners – a slice of paradise that radiates peace and tranquility.

The estate also includes a two-level, climate-controlled artisan studio with 4-bays and bathroom. The upper level enjoys gorgeous sunlight and jaw-dropping views from two decks. Private parking rounds out this distinctive and inspiring creative space.

The property is connected to city water and a private well with a holding tank, a generator with a 500-gallon propane tank, 20KW SOLAR, 800-amp electrical service, and has a large underground storage-room and private safe room.

The Rogue Valley is well-loved for the “Wild and Scenic” Rogue River that runs from Crater Lake to the Pacific Ocean, for the Pacific Crest Trail, Mount Ashland Ski resort, the renown Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and the wine country of the Applegate, Illinois, and Rogue Valleys. This magnificent contemporary estate provides luxurious, elegant living in a natural paradise convenient to west coast metro-areas.
