The Story The home was intentionally designed to be in sync with the land, with a sense of the nearby forest and maple trees dotting the landscape. Each Douglas fir log, some as long as 60 feet, was hand-carved for a specific location in the home and assembled with a weather-tight fit. The layers of finish on the beams throughout the great room reflect the light pouring in from the expansive windows, and a full log truss supports the roof of the front patio entry. The home was designed by Rick Carr of Cascade Log Homes, and was featured in Log Home Living magazine. After landscaping two acres to build the home, 15 acres of pasture on the property were reforested with Douglas fir trees.
great room A split-log mantle with hand-selected river rock surrounds the wood burning fireplace that centers the main floor and establishes the rustic architecture of the home. The floor-to-ceiling apex windows let in all of the light as it bounces off the polished beams, and sliders open to the deck for effortless indoor/outdoor entertaining. Views of the greenery outside can be seen from any spot walking around the great room and open main floor. The exposed structural elements of this room in the vaulted ceilings and angles of the beams are a rarity, even in the Northwest. Enjoy the warmth of the fireplace and the views of the grounds, wildlife, and valleys beyond from the comfort of the truly captivating great room.
Kitchen The kitchen features pine cabinets and hardwood floors, along with a large cooking island with breakfast bar seating. An antique wood stove can be used for cooking or as an added vintage element to this timeless home. The kitchen opens up to the dining area and front porch, and a laundry and pantry room off of the kitchen area is perfect for keeping the laundry on the same level as the bedrooms. Gaze out at the hummingbirds buzzing around the front porch as the view of the 150-year-old maple tree ahead on the grounds takes you back in time.
Dining Room The formal dining area to the right opens up to the kitchen and the great room, and is spacious enough to fit a large dining table. Enjoy this area for both formal and informal entertaining with an easy flow to the great room out and to the deck. A vintage lighting fixture defines the space with another 19th century touch to match the antique stove.
master suite The wood beams and fir walls continue into the master bedroom and bathroom, which is intentionally situated on the main floor with views of the grounds and trees. The master bedroom effortlessly mixes the grand scale of the wood beams with the comfort and warmth of the wood stove. Be greeted in bed in the morning with spectacular views from the bay window out to the manicured garden. The bay window seat and sizable room provide ample space for a sitting area around the antique wood stove. French doors to the private master deck keep the room feeling open and airy with valley views. A walk-in closet with triple rack storage reaches to the ceiling. The bathroom features double sinks, double shower heads, and an antique claw foot soaking tub. This master suite provides a simple transition from the great room to a relaxed, private suite with views framed around the nature outside.
Guest Bedrooms The grand lodge feeling of the home continues on to the two guest bedrooms and guest bathroom, which are situated well on the main floor and separate from the master suite. Both rooms are spacious with plenty of natural light, and glass sliders in the second room lead out to the deck with views of the valley. A side door on the front deck with etched glass detailing provides an alternate entry below a naturally-shed antler chandelier.
downstairs family room Stay warm and comfortable in the winter in the downstairs family room, which is spacious enough to be used as a bonus room or game room. The wood stove heats the entire downstairs with a cultured stone fireplace, solid wood mantle, and wood storage nooks. Natural wood wainscoting throughout the family room adds to the warmth of the space, and a sliding door leads straight out to the impeccable grounds for an easy transition to the outdoors.
downstairs utility areas Walk in from the three-car garage to the tiled utility room with an extra washer and dryer. A wall of built-in storage cabinets provide added functionality to the utility room, which flows to the full bathroom conveniently located close to the family room.
deck and views Sit up among the trees on the deck and look out at the property grounds, forests, and the valley. A great oak right next to the deck makes the space feel in sync with the surrounding nature. Look out from the wood beam railing at the terrace landscape as it flows with the slope of the hill. The deck acts as a natural extension of the indoor living space - perfectly planned and built to keep the livability of the space in mind.
grounds After driving through wine country, arrive at this 40 acre property through a paved, private drive surrounded by manicured grounds. A 150-year-old maple tree comes into view along the turn-around driveway by the front porch. The estate features endless recreational opportunities with hiking and ATV trails. View the expansive landscape and terraced lawns surrounding the main house with the rolling hills and valleys in the distance.
pond Sip on a glass of wine on the secluded dock above the spring-fed pond surrounded by birds, frogs, and 400 trout for fishing. The grounds around the pond offer endless possibilities, from camping and swimming with the kids to an upscale event with easy access for cars or catering.
Pole Barn A pole barn, which could be used as a shop, has concrete floors and an oversized garage door big enough for RV parking. A structure for dry wood storage sits next to the barn.
Vineyard Potential This home and property is in Carlton, Oregon, five minutes from Newberg, and right in the heart of the Willamette Valley among the best vineyards in Oregon. The property features several walking paths through the forest, and acres of vineyard potential. With access to the amenities in town a short drive away, enjoy the numerous activities this property has to offer in the summer or retreat to the grand lodge home in the winter.
