5 Acre Vineyard Estate with Valley Views
There is a little taste of the Tuscan countryside tucked down a long, tree-lined lane in West Linn, Oregon. Or maybe it’s a slice of Calistoga, California. Or perhaps it’s a nibble of Provence. Or maybe it’s an amalgam of all three that makes it something new but also familiar. The property is just off Schaeffer Road and situated on a high spot in the land that affords it an incredible view to the west, down over the Willamette Valley. An acre of organically-farmed Pinot Noir grapes are planted on a gentle slope just off the back patio of the home, not only adding to the picturesque landscape but yielding around 150 cases each year. The home itself is 7,000 sq. feet of warm, light-filled rooms with exposed beams and huge windows that frame sunset views that span all the way to the coastal range. The two large outbuildings are designed to house a winery onsite. Wide double doors welcome friends and family inside and into the comfortable living room. Here, rustic slate floors below and exposed beams overhead create a casual atmosphere perfect for gathering around the fireplace that is surrounded by a wall of slate with built-in bookcases and wood storage. A convenient wet bar connects the living room to the large dining room where the ceilings soar to the full two-story height of the home. Both rooms feature large windows and beautiful views. The dining room includes a brass, wood-burning stove in one corner that gives the grand space a sense of coziness despite its size. Just around the corner is the kitchen. The tall ceilings here are lined with exposed beams and dotted with skylights that provide wonderful natural light to the room. Brick red cabinetry and dark granite countertops give the kitchen a bit of a Tuscan feeling that is enhanced by the huge picture window overlooking the vineyards that sits over the sink. The large island that sits in the center of the room is certain to be a gathering spot. Details + photos at www.westlinnvineyar
