                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: I have always loved the historic buildings and close knit neighborhoods in this northern part of Newberg. Many years ago, I was delighted to jump at the opportunity when I saw a realtor installing a 'for sale' sign on the property that would become U House. I've restored four houses in this part of town, nurturing them from various states of disrepair into beautiful homes. My love of antiques shows throughout the house, as many of the furnishings are family heirlooms. In my thirty years of living in the Willamette Valley, I continue to be amazed at the astonishing variety available here. Downtown Newberg is full of character with an intimate, easy-going atmosphere. The mid-valley area is so spectacular in its geography, recreational choices, abundant wildlife, agricultural diversity and artistic community, yet also close to town and city environments. I enjoy being able to go from valley to mountain to desert in a few hours to the east, or west through the Coast Range to some of the most stunning coastline to be found anywhere. Allow us to introduce you to this unique part of the world, or assist you in deepening your own appreciation of what our area has to offer. Welcome to the U House...your home away from home while visiting Yamhill County.

                  Why the Owner Chose Newberg:
                  This turn of the century home caught my eye years before it became available, and I was thrilled to be able to turn the house into a comfortable haven for travellers to enjoy. This is a beautiful historic area with a friendly neighborhood network, quiet yet close to a wide array of dining and activities in premiere wine country.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The wine country mural in the hot tub patio draws your stress out and away with every warm bubbly moment. Family antiques lend a sense of belonging and connection to your stay. Melt into the zen of the flames in the fireplace while placing your cares aside for a time. You need only ask and we will provide full concierge service to recommend dining and sightseeing options as well as make those reservations for you. We truly want you to feel at home here.
