Property description

Bend Bird’s Nest: A Solar powered Mid Century Modern Green Vacation Rental

Located in the heart of Bend, this home is located within walking distance to historic downtown, grocery stores, restaurants, breweries, 5 different city parks, the river trail, and two blocks from Century drive that takes you straight to Mount Bachelor. A short bike ride will get you to the Old Mill District and Les Schwab amphitheater which means if you are on vacation you may not even need to use your car. This pet friendly house is also right by two dog parks to keep any 4-legged family members happy.

Construction on this house began in 2007 with designs to gain LEED platinum certification. The program was never completed due to builder financing problems, but the house is perfect for those who want a Green place to stay. No VOC paints, finishes, and certified nontoxic products were used in building and maintaining the house. Natural wool carpets, cork bathroom floors, and an emphasis on wood, steel, natural fibers, and glass instead of plastics and synthetics make this the perfect place to stay for those who want a clean environment.

Completing the designers’ original plan the house has been outfitted with solar panels. Last summer more power was put onto the local grid than consumed. You can even look at the power meter and see how you are doing! Stay at the only vacation house in the neighborhood with solar panels.

The house was architecturally built with a Mid-Century Modern feel. We have maintained that feel with the décor, using clean and simple lines in the furnishings. But we also wanted to make sure every seat and every chair was comfortable to sit in. 9 foot ceilings and 8 foot solid doors thru the house give an open feeling. Whether you need to come to town for work or play, at the end of the day this house is designed to be a place to relax and rest.

Kitchen
The first floor is an open floor plan centered on the kitchen. With luxury appliances like a Subzero refrigerator you can cook in style and space with 53 sq feet of Madrone Butcher Block counters. Because the kitchen and living room blend together you can also watch the 52” Samsung LCD TV with DVR while you cook. Both TV’s in the house have DVR’s, so you can tape and watch any of your favorite shows. There is also a Weber Genesis gas BBQ in the fenced side yard for grilling. If you need last second grocery items Bend’s gourmet local store, Newport Market as well as an organic store are only a 1/2 block away.

Living Room
Plenty of seating in the living room at on one of the barstools along the kitchen counter, or the leather couch which is perfect for lounging, or a pair of 1950’s vintage chairs. Speakers, TV, wifi, parks modern gas fireplace, and a 9-foot shuffleboard table ensure you won’t be bored. If it’s a cold winter morning the soybean finished radiant heated concrete floors will keep your feet warm. In the summer the concrete works to keep the house cool. The large windows with screens let in light, fresh air, and a feeling of being connected with the outdoors. Blinds and curtains ensure you can also maintain your privacy.

Dining Room
The other side of the kitchen is the dining room. Set with a teak dining table and leather seats for 6 it’s easy to serve a family style dinner by taking advantage of the pass through the kitchen. If you have friends over, the table leafs extend out to seat up to ten, and there are additional chairs stored at the house. The dining table was seen on HGTV's Secrets From A Stylist as a great find! The dining room also has French doors opening into the private side yard and patio seating area so you can enjoy indoor/outdoor living.

Master Bedroom Suite
A hardwood floor staircase will lead you to the second floor with a separate Master Suite wing. The bedroom has a king size bed with Stearns and Foster mattress, bamboo headboard, two reading chairs, 32” Vizio LCD TV with DVR, and private deck for two.

The Master bathroom is designed to feel like a spa. With double vanities and a large mirror over Paperstone countertops any couple will have plenty of room to spread out. For those late night trips to the bathroom a motion sensor will turn on the soft glow of under counter mounted LED rope lights, giving you plenty of light to see without being forced wide awake. The Jacuzzi made soaking bathtub is great for relaxing after a fun day playing outside. The shower has a bench as well as Grohe rain showerhead to help fulfill the spa experience. As with all bathrooms in the house, a dual flush toilet insures minimum water wastage.

2nd Bedroom and Bonus Room.
The other wing of the second floor has another full bath, laundry room, bedroom with queen size bed as well as leather reading chair. A bonus room has a full size bed with windows overlooking a raised planter bed seeded with wildflowers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our property stands out as the most Green house on the market. While several other houses have the same design as our house, none have our solar panels. We are pet friendly because we have an Australian Shepherd who goes everywhere with us, so we now how great it is to take furry family members on vacation. We leave the house stocked with a bocce ball set, bean bag toss game, and gourmet kitchen to insure your vacation is always great. The furniture in the house was picked because of comfort, we truly love each piece and hope you do to.
