RISMEDIA, May 22, 2009-Located in the small southern Oregon town of Grants Pass, this three-bedroom home is situated in an area known for clean living and year-round outdoor living. Fly fishing the famous Rogue River, skiing Mt. Ashland, farmers markets, summer concerts in the park as well as the world renowned Ashland Shakespeare Festival are all within a 20-minute drive.
A stunning departure from the ordinary, the details in the architecture and appointments of the home reflect the local timber and mining history that allowed Grants Pass to boom in the early 1900’s. Yet, taken as a whole, this 15,100 sq. ft. residence with massive log beams, towering windows and flowing floorplan is distinctly contemporary. The best testament to the success of the homes design is how richly livable it is- how well it’s able to nourish the mountain life of its residents with mesmerizing vistas and spaces that truly draw people together.
Guests are greeted at an entry constructed from log pillars that frame the hand-carved double doors that open to the two-story foyer. Granite flooring and a hand-carved staircase allow access to the upper and lower levels and are used to separate the entry and main living areas.
The secluded master retreat serves as a home within a home. The bedroom is the core of this retreat and at its center is a dual sided floor to ceiling fireplace shared by the sitting room with a private balcony. The bath, opulent and expansive, is floored in travertine tile punctuated with river rock mosaic. The deep Jacuzzi tub gleams under a wall of windows and two additional bedrooms feature private balconies and their own baths.
Other features of the house include: a massive floor to ceiling stone fireplace with a one-of-a-kind carved mantle; a gourmet kitchen full of “Old Gold” Doug Fir cabinetry, double Wolf Convection Ovens, warming drawers and Sub Zero Fridge; outdoor entertainment with over 8,000 sq. ft. of stone patios, covered stone decks, an outdoor kitchen complete with a stone fireplace, sauna and stone firepit designed around the free-flowing pool and a state-of-the-art Kaleidescape Media System which serves the entire home as well as a private 16 seat theater complete with 1950’s themed lobby.
