Property description

The views do not get better than this spectacular 4 bedroom home in the quaint town of Hood River, Oregon located 60 miles east of Portland in the beautiful Columbia River Gorge Scenic Wilderness. This amazing home has phenomenal views of the Columbia River from virtually every window, some of the best in the Gorge.

Overlooking the Marina and the sandy beaches of the Columbia River one can watch kiteboarders, windsurfers, boaters, barges and the Sternwheeler while relaxing on the decks or in the great room. Fly-fishers can be seen casting on Hood River and the expansive Hood River valley and Mt. Hood with its year-round skiing can be viewed from the south.

This 3800 SF home is equipped with a gourmet kitchen including a commercial Viking range, two ovens, two sinks, and a large granite island. The master suite is well appointed with a surround sound audio/video/TV, sitting area, gorgeous bathroom with a walk-in jetted shower, and large soaking tub. There are two additional bathrooms and a powder room. The office is equipped with hard and wireless DSL and can be converted to a fifth bedroom. There is a bonus/family room with surround sound audio/video/TV. There is a loft with an adjoining patio, which features spectacular views, that has a comfortable queen futon bed. There is foos ball, dart board, and a ping pong table in the garage. From the roof top sun deck one can enjoy fabulous views of the Columbia River, Hood River, valley, and Mt. Hood. There are 3 additional decks including one covered deck off the kitchen, one off the great room and master suite, and one adjacent to the bonus room. There is a large laundry room equipped with washer and dryer as well as a drying rack and ironing board. The great room is stunning with its high beams, outstanding views, stone fireplace, and big screen Satellite TV/audio/video/IPOD dock with surround sound. This home is optimal for 8-10 guests with the following sleeping arrangement: 2 kings, 1 queen, 2 full/double, and 2 queen futons.

The downtown area is approximately a five minute walk down the Hood River staircase (two flights of stairs) that leads to the city fountain and brew pub, great shopping, art galleries, fine cuisine, theater, wine tasting, and coffee/internet cafes. The Indian Creek trailhead is adjacent to the home. It is a 15 minute walk to the spit where the kiteboarders launch, and a 10 minute walk to great fly fishing near the mouth of the Hood. There are several wineries and brew pubs within walking distance and numerous other vineyards with winetasting within a few minutes drive.

Mt. Hood Meadows, a winter ski resort, is about 35 minutes south and the historical Timberline Lodge with year-round glacier skiing is about a 50 minute drive. Lost Lake and Timothy Lake are within a one hour drive and the infamous Mt. St. Helens is about 2 hours to the most spectacular viewpoint at Johnston Ridge. There are numerous spectacular, scenic routes for road biking and Post Canyon (a 5-10 minute drive) has mountain biking trails for all ages. White water rafting and kayaking is available on both the White Salmon (5 minute drive) and Deshutes River (60 plus minutes. There are numerous options for hiking, windsurfing, and kiteboarding for all levels (The Event Site, The Hook, The Marina, and the Spit are a 1-2 minute drive).

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We are an active family of six who love all the activities that the Gorge has to offer. From skiing in the winter months to wind surfing, kiteboarding, fishing, hiking, and cycling in the summer.

Why the Owner Chose Hood River:
Hood River has it all! We spent years camping in the Gorge raising our children along the banks of the Columbia where the wind blows. We were always drawn to Hood River and chose to build our home in this prime location so that we could walk to Mike's Ice Cream and the Double Mountain Brew Pub!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Hood River has so much to offer for everyone. Whether it's kiteboarding, wind surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking, fishing, biking, white water rafting, hiking, or shopping, wine tasting, visiting orchards or just plain relaxing at the house mesmerized by the view.....Hood River has it all. Fabulous restaurants, coffee houses, wineries, brew pubs, and shopping in this small town are a bonus. And all within walking distance from our home.
