Property descriptionPass through the gates of West Linn's coveted Stafford Hill Ranch and follow the meandering drive past gorgeous multi-million dollar country estates and the lush paddocks of the equestrian properties. Known for its large parcels and some of the best views in the Pacific Northwest, this locale is an escape from every day secluded and private while convenient for the requirements of every day life.
This home, located behind its own set of gates, is a place to escape, a place to gather with friends and family, a place to make memories and honor traditions. At the same time it's a place to unwind, to recharge, and to find peace and quiet. Perfectly designed to showcase incredible views of Mt. Hood, this home sits on a completely private nearly five-acre lot.
Originally built by Dixie Powers, designer and co-founder of Baggallini Inc., an internationally known handbag and travel accessories brand, in 2003, this home has an open, flowing layout with two sumptuous master suites on the main floor. With large windows that frame the beauty of the grounds and multiple decks, including a covered eating and dining area just off the kitchen, this home is a place to appreciate and enjoy indoor/outdoor living and the seasons of the Pacific Northwest.
The home's design includes ample use of African Bubinga, a striking hardwood with a reddish-brown hue also called African Rosewood. Known for its beauty and stunning grain, Bubinga is not only commonly used in paneling and cabinetry as it is in this home, but also musical instruments, one-of-a-kind furniture and intricate inlay work.
Step inside the impressive foyer and into the spacious living room where a bank of windows frame the gorgeous view over the treetops to the snowy peaks of Mt. Hood. Thick beams enhance the tall cathedral ceiling giving the room a fantastic open feeling. The gas fireplace is surrounded by a stone mantlepiece topped with Bubinga paneling and columns. A full bar with seating sits off to one side of the living room and includes shelves for bottles, a tv and a wine cooler completing this a perfect entertaining spot.
As the living room flows into the kitchen, a conveniently located French door leads out to the deck overlooking the back of the property. The floorplan is ideal for indoor/outdoor living and entertaining allowing easy movement through the area. Head into the kitchen where large windows over the sink add natural light and a Mt. Hood view to the room. Bubinga cabinetry and a large, curved island give the kitchen a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Another set of doors in the breakfast nook lead outside to the deck where a covered area is perfect for meals outside. The kitchen features a six-burner Viking cooktop, dual Viking wall ovens and Viking refrigerator. A large laundry room and access to the garage is located just off the kitchen.
The main floor includes two master suites at either end, each featuring the eight-foot tall doors that are present throughout the home. The primary master features a Mt. Hood view from inside as well as from its comfortable, private patio. The bedroom is a calming and comfortable space with enough room for a seating area to relax in at the start or the end of the day. The luxurious ensuite bath has a relaxing jacuzzi tub with a showstopping view, a glass shower and a huge vanity with storage and space to spread out. All the bathrooms in the home have luxurious heated floors. The walk-in closet is huge and includes plenty of custom organization options. The second master also has private access to its own corner of the deck and a gorgeous view. The ensuite bath is nicely sized as is the walk-in closet.
Also on the main floor is a huge executive's office with a cathedral ceiling. The office is an impressive 560 sq. feet perfect for a primary office. A fireplace flanked by Bubinga built-ins and a view of the front-drive and the soothing water feature at the front of the home. Open the large windows and enjoy the sound of the water as you focus on work or enjoy some relaxation time.
The daylight basement is a beautiful extension of the main floor with a large family room accented with Bubinga paneling and cabinetry along with a bar with a full-size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. Accordion doors lead outside to a covered patio that leads down to the grassy lawn. The separate home theater room includes a projection system and is fully connected to the house-wide Control4 home automation and smart home system. With a touchpad in every room, all of the Control4 features are available everywhere. A nearby closet includes a full rack of Control4 components for easy access.
This floor also includes three guest bedrooms, each with its own bath and large walk-in closet. The third bedroom is currently converted into a spacious game room. The rec room which has easy access to the patio and backyard, also includes a closet and full bath, making it a potential additional bedroom. A nearby staircase leads up to the garage, providing a convenient separate entrance for guests. This flexibility highlights another special feature of this home. It's ideally suited for multi-generational living with the second master suite on the main level and this lower level with its separate entrance and convenient wet bar in the family room.
Of the 4.63 acres that this property encompasses, 3.5 acres have recently been designated as forest land which comes with the potential for a reduction in property taxes. The exterior of this incredible home was completely repainted early this fall and the entire tile roof was professionally cleaned and preventative maintenance performed.
This completely private property is on a gated lot within a gated community, providing an enhanced level of seclusion. This home and its grounds, featuring one of the most sought after views in the Portland area, feel as if they are on a nature reserve in the country despite being in one of the most convenient and popular suburbs of Portland. This home is a quiet, private retreat that can also be an entertainer's dream with the possibility of the addition of a pool or sport court in the future. Only 30 minutes to Portland International Airport with convenient access to both I-205 and I-5, this home only feels remote. West Linn is frequently ranked among the top places to live in Oregon and is known for its active community, great schools and convenient location.
