About Matthew Johnson

Our family bought several properties in the Applegate Valley 20 years ago. We are fortunate enough to have bought one of them and have a father who was willing and able to build our dream home. It sits on the river surrounded by glass and is breathtaking. We work in the Bay Area, unfortunately we can only occupy the home part time. So we've decided to rent it out the rest of the time so that others can enjoy all of it glory. Please feel free to contact us with any and all questions.

Matthew Johnson purchased this house in 2009

Why Matthew Johnson chose Southern Oregon

The Applegate Valley has so much to offer. If you enjoy wine this is the place for you. There are dozens of wineries in close proximity to the house. There are also many local festivals which to partake in. The house is centrally located next to places to dine and be entertained. We are 15 miles away from Jacksonville and 30 miles away from the Medford Airport. The house is on the river so if hiking, fishing or rafting appeal to you this is ideal. But even if you never left the comfort of the house you can definitely experience the beauty of the Applegate with all of the house guests while engaging in a multitude of activities. There’s room for everyone to spread out and enjoy themselves whatever they decide to do.

What makes this house unique

This unique property has an array of outdoor activities such as hiking, fishing and rafting to enjoy. There are two bedrooms on the entry level. Both have attached bathrooms. The Master Bedroom (The Gold Room) has an open two person stone tiled shower and the other (The Blue Room) has a stone tiled shower with a bathtub. They are each gorgeous and unique in there own right. Also on this level you can cook in the luxurious kitchen with large island perfect for entertaining. There are four different seating areas to sit just in the kitchen dining area alone. You may chose to hang out in one of three living areas. One next to the kitchen with an electric fireplace, 42” flat screen TV, couches and reclining chairs to take in the company and the views. There is a place to dine downstairs as well or play poker if you choose to. There is a theater game playing area. We’ve created several seating areas which to lounge around the billiards area and wet bar. The warm colored custom concrete flooring in this day light basement is ideal if you choice to relax by the gorgeous river rock fireplace. Or you may choose to relax in the suite upstairs (The Red Room) with its open stone tiled floored shower, TV, DVD, lounge area and eastern king size platform bed. There is also a spacious laundry room if you’re in the mood. There really is something for everyone and not enough words to describe all of its unique beauty; you’d really have to experience it for yourself.

Family get-together

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family was staying in three locations less than a mile apart. This house was a great place to gather for an evening meal or time in the evening to gather for recreational activities after a busy day hiking, sight-seeing, water activities, winery visits and more. We were three generations who could enjoy various activities together or apart with all the distinct areas in which to gather. Pool playing could be going on in the lower level, while wee ones were being read to in a quieter spot upstairs and others were working jigsaw puzzles, cooking in the well equipped kitchen, or enjoying quiet conversation. We did put some of the fragile art pieces away to protect from curious little hands. Have already recommended to others.

Dream home...

  • 5 of 5

This home is truly amazing! The placement of every single item in the home has been well thought out and works with the space.The flow of energy in the home is just about perfect. The combination of well maintained indoor plants and great interior design really helped us to settle in quickly and enjoy our stay. My stay was relaxing,rejuvenating and even more than what I hoped it to be. Communicating with the owner and caretaker was very easy and enjoyable. I would strongly recommend others to take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy such a beautiful spot.

Tranquil Thanksgiving getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family needed a meeting place for Thanksgiving as our prior meeting place had been sold.

We were amazed when we walked into this gorgeous comfortable home. The three level home has beautiful woodsy views, super comfortable bedrooms. We prepared all our meals in a kitchen that was well stocked and easy to work in and clean.

The home afforded many different settings--intimate eating areas, large dining table, cozy sitting room and fun basement area.

As the home is filled with art pieces, i would be hesitant about bringing younger children. It was perfect for our adult group.

Excellent Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

Don't let the exterior surroundings fool you... when you open the front door, you are greeted by an amazing warmth and decor that immediately makes you feel at home! The wooden floors are so inviting to just sit on them! Each room is lovely and comfortable and the bottom floor with the pool table & entertainment area is a total bonus! Plus the surrounding Applegate area...with the river and all the vineyards is perfect for visitors from other countries as well!

Fun on the Applegate!

  • 5 of 5

My friends from California and I made a very last minute decision to spend a week in Oregon, and we feared we'd really have to "settle" for any old shack we could find that was available. Not so! This house was perfect for our needs and possessed the perfect balance of remoteness and access to services, not to mention the close proximity to all kinds of great vineyards and local farms. We ate at Peace of Pizza twice, which was delicious, and any basic food supplies can be found at the Applegate Store & Cafe. Jacksonville is a pleasant 20-25 minute drive, and Ashland is only a bit further with all sorts of shops and restaurants. We were three adults and two kids (ages 6 and 8), and a great time was had by all. Tubing and fishing on the Applegate, playing pool, watching movies, popping popcorn in the old fashioned popcorn popper, etc. The house was extremely comfortable and lacked for nothing. I highly recommend it, especially for groups as there are so many different places to hang out in the house.

Paragliding guests

  • 5 of 5

Place worked out great for the 6 people we had in our group. Nice location. Enjoyed the Peace of Pizza just a couple blocks away, the kitchen for the nights we cooked, and plenty of place to spread out. Had to search around for the propane tank for the grill, but not a problem. Nit-picking...would be nice to have a music source on the main floor. Would stay here again.
