There is no disputing that summers in Oregon are absolutely glorious. Make your summer and many more to come filled with sun-drenched days by the pool and all the recreation you can imagine on nearly three private acres in West Linn. Refreshed and ready for friends and family this stately stone and brick traditional-style home is surrounded by new landscaping and dotted by boulders brought in from nearby Hood River.

Originally designed by architect Ralph Olson of Olson Group Architects, the home was inspired by the casually elegant living of the French countryside. Remodeled in 2007 by Countryside Homes and recently completely overhauled to include new RH light fixtures, new HVAC systems and new oak hardwoods, the timeless design of this home has been enhanced for today’s living while maintaining all its original elegance.

From the rustic beams spanning the vaulted dining room just off the foyer to the tumbled stone tile floors, the aesthetic is inviting and comfortable with plenty of room for entertaining and casually elegant living. The floorplan is open with a great room that features a stone fireplace surround extending all the way up to the vaulted, 23-foot ceilings and beams highlighting the soaring space. A wall of windows extending through to the kitchen overlooks the lush backyard and s the space with natural light. The more formal living room, perfect for special occasions and celebrations, is next door and features a gas fireplace and French doors leading outside to the covered patio.

The welcoming kitchen is filled with lovely custom cabinetry built by Hayes Cabinets providing ample storage including a handy coffee station and a matching cabinet-front SubZero side-by-side refrigerator. The large central island is the perfect prep and serving space and houses a Shaws farmhouse sink and is topped with granite counters. Beadboard wall accents on and ceiling add texture and a lovely relaxed tone to the casual aesthetic in the kitchen. Top-of-the-line appliances include a six-burner plus griddle Wolf range with dual ovens and a pot filler, a Wolf warming drawer, a Bosch dishwasher and two Fisher & Paykel dishwasher drawers, a SubZero ice maker and a GE Monogram beverage fridge. Just off the kitchen are a walk-in pantry and the spacious laundry room with new Samsung smart washer and dryer easily accessed for pool towels from a door to the back patio.

The breakfast area overlooks the backyard and French doors lead outside to the covered patio perfect for indoor/outdoor entertaining and dining. A loft with a spectacular Mt. Hood view is located above the kitchen overlooking the breakfast area and living room and it features a built-in desk and counter space perfect for homework and projects. The adjacent bonus room is oversized and extends over the three-car garage making it the ideal spot for a media room.

With everything at your fingertips, a Sonos surround sound system brings music inside and out and the saltwater pool is controlled via a portable tablet which can stay inside or be taken poolside for ease of use. The inviting pool features new tile and a new automatic cover and was built with a self-filling feature to easily maintain optimum water levels. The pool deck is broad to accommodate comfortable loungers or a twilight cocktail party. Surrounded by new plants, sod and LED landscape lighting, the pathways are illuminated and the house and trees are highlighted at night. The convenient pool house has two changing areas and a wet bar with room for a full-size refrigerator as well as a full bath with a shower and a new Toto toilet, one of the all new Toto super flush fixtures recently installed throughout the home.

The entire exterior of the home and the pool house have been freshly painted and the roof and gutters on the main house are also new. The spacious and private backyard also includes a deluxe play structure surrounded by wood chips, a stone patio perfect for a fire pit, a dog run and enough space for a sport court, garden, level yard for playing and even an ADU.

The luxurious primary suite is located on the main floor with private access to the backyard. Vaulted ceilings with thick beams define the bedroom and the ensuite bath features a walk-in shower, a soaking tub and stylish new light fixtures. Dual closets with custom storage solutions complete the space. A guest bedroom with an ensuite bath shared as a hall bath is also located on the main floor. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one with an inviting princess balcony, sharing a hall bath. Downstairs, the daylight basement leads to the fourth garage, accessed from the side of the home, which is perfect for a shop or home gym. The huge bonus room has enough space for a pool table and seating area. French doors open to a spacious office with a built-in desk and a set of doors leading outside to the incredible backyard.

The circular drive that curves around the front of the home could easily be gated for additional privacy and security but the quiet road that leads to this perfect piece of countryside is quiet and not frequently traveled. The Oregon Golf Club is just three minutes away and fantastic wineries are less than 15 minutes away. Located in the West Linn/Wilsonville school district, this home is close to Stafford Elementary School, Athey Creek Middle School and West Linn High School. The shopping, restaurants, Farmer’s Markets and community activities of downtown Lake Oswego and Old Town Willamette are a quick 10-minute drive. There are multiple parks nearby including Luscher Farms City Park with its athletic field, dog park and numerous walking trails and the much anticipated Rassekh Park slated to open early next year. A trip to PDX will take about 25 minutes, the same amount of time it will take to get to downtown Portland.
