Enjoy this stunning historic two story Victorian house built in 1900 and perched on a bluff top corner lot adjacent to the Hood River with sweeping 270 degree dynamic views. Views include the Columbia River, Hood River, Hood River Bridge, White Salmon Bridge, Washington and East hills, peek-a-boo of Mt Hood, Fourth of July fireworks, and the occasional Mt Hood Railroad tourist train. Portions of the windsurfing “Event Site” and the kite boarding “Spit” are also within view. Enjoy watching the colorful chaos of windsurfers, kite boarders and sailboats while listening to the sound of the Hood River below.
Without neighbors on two sides, the unfenced wind-protected private back yard and deck has the same views as the house and is a perfect location to watch human and wildlife activities in the surrounding river gorges below while grilling on the Weber grill under the shade of gnarled oak trees.
