Hood River villa description

Looking for a sunny getaway that is only an hour and fifteen minutes from Portland, yet feels like it is miles away in Tuscany instead of on the Columbia River?

We have your perfect getaway in the foothills just five miles from downtown Hood River in the sleepy town of Mosier.

Imagine sipping a lemonade or glass of wine on a large deck overlooking vineyards and orchards at sunset or star gazing at the spectacular night sky!

Enjoy your Hood River vacation in this fairly new custom, energy efficient 3,000 square foot home (naturally cool in the summer and warm in the winter). The heated floors, solid wood doors, stone countertops in the gourmet kitchen, wood fireplace, marble showers, venetian plaster and hand-painted armoires will make you feel like you're in an Italian villa with all of the modern conveniences like WiFi and big screen TV in the media room.

Everything is here to make your Columbia Gorge Vacation a retreat you'll want to come back to often!

This Columbia Gorge vacation home is situated on 10 acres with views of our own small Sangiovese vineyard as well as surrounding vineyards, flower farm, and cherry orchards. You can soak up the views with the floor to ceiling windows in the great room, outside from the large deck or under the big oak tree on the back patio as you grill on the barbecue.

There is a seasonal creek that flows through the property and brings a variety of wildlife - elk, deer, bunnies, wild turkeys, to name a few!

For the hiker, there are miles of trails surrounding the home. For the wine lover, there are many wineries in the area to visit and taste. For the nature lover, there are many beautiful vistas to feast your eyes.

Whether you spend a week or just a weekend, you're sure to go home relaxed and revived!

Eco-friendly and special:
The focus in building this home was to provide a very private getaway that is energy efficient and uses as many natural and recycled materials as possible. The walls are actually made of recycled Styrofoam and cement formed into very large concrete blocks (Rastra Block) – this gives the house super insulation (R Factor 50 versus the normal 25).

Many materials came from Mosier – the ceiling in the great room is reclaimed lumber from the original farm house that was part of a large cherry orchard that encompassed our 10 acres and 100 acres of the surrounding farms and land parcels. The brick on the steps was part of an old church in town.

While the kitchen cabinets don’t look recycled (they are custom made Rutt cabinets) - they were bought on Ebay and repainted. The front door is from the Philippines and is made from recycled railroad ties. The armoires in the bedrooms and the powder room are from Thailand – made from recycled wood and iron gates. The coffee table is an old wagon wheel.

The water is well water coming from our own well 600 feet below ground – nice and fresh after the volcanic rocks filter it!
