Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

You'll love this one of a kind house, located in a one of a kind spot!

The 4000 sq. ft. home is in a gated subdivision on the Deschutes River. The back looks out at the river and across to the river trail where bikers and hikers pass by throughout the day. With no houses across the river, it feels like you're out in the country, but you're right in town!

The main level is mostly great room with huge picture windows looking out to the river. The spacious kitchen with seating at the marble island is a natural gathering spot - and cooks will love the fully equipped kitchen with high end appliances including a 6 burner gas cooktop. The other side of the great room is the living area which has a gas fireplace and 70' HD TV with surround sound. Stepping outside onto the main deck, you will find yourself looking down on one of the prettiest sections of the Deschutes River. This is a fabulous place to spend the evenings. The sun sets early behind Awbrey Butte so there is a long twilight. Also on the main level is a full bathroom and an office/bedroom with a queen size bed.

Upstairs are two bedrooms. One is a nice sized bedroom with a queen bed and its own full bath. The other is the master. It's very spacious with a king bed, sitting area, and a huge private deck out over the roof. The bathroom is over the top with dual sinks, walk-in shower, jetted bath, and a washer and dryer.

Go downstairs to the lower level and you'll find yourself in the game room. It has a full size pool table, arcade games, pub table and chairs, couches, a 40' TV and great views of the river. Adjacent to the game room, there is a spacious bedroom with a terrific river view and a queen size bed. There is also a huge bunk room with two sets of bunkbeds and a queen bed. Further back you'll find a theater with a 100' screen and high quality surround sound. There's a PlayStation 3 that's really cool on the big screen with the surround sound. Rounding out the bottom level are two full bathrooms. The best part of the basement level is the covered granite patio overlooking the river. Watch the wildlife while you enjoy the shade on a warm summer day; or soak in the hot tub after skiing in the winter.

About Rick Gordon

I'm a carpenter / general contractor. I moved to Bend from Hawaii with my wife who grew up here. Since I like to golf, snowboard, and mountain bike I can't think of a better place to live.

Rick Gordon purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick Gordon chose Bend

This house is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning, work, and a little luck. A friend found the lot while visiting one of the neighbors. I couldn't believe that there was a lot on the river that was so conveniently located yet didn't even feel like it was in town. After considering a partnership with him to do a spec home, my wife and I decided to buy it for ourselves. Four years and many plans later, we finally started building. We finally moved in February of 2010. Unfortunately, my wife passed away from cancer. Suddenly I found myself with this huge house that is too much for my son and me. Since I love this house too much to sell, I decided to finish off the basement and make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy it. Of course, I also like that I can come use it still.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

The place was extremely accommodating to our crew of 11 guys. The interior was clean and everything worked great, including hot tub, ordering the fight on the TV and bbq on the back porch. Great place out back to float the river and fish. The property felt very private and super safe. Would stay again for sure.

The perfect family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

There are so many great things about this house it is hard to describe them all. Meticulous detail and planning have gone into every aspect of the design of this home. Being able to sit out on the deck and see and hear the Deschutes is priceless. The kids spent hours exploring in and around the river. Rick is attentive to any and all needs you may have. For large families or multi-family gatherings, this is the perfect spot.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in the Bend area many times but this is the first time we stayed in central Bend. We loved being so close to the river, River Bend Park and activities. We still drove out to the Alpine lakes and also Sun River for biking. We loved this location. The house also was wonderful. We loved how everyone had their own privacy and yet with the common areas we were able to have great family time. The home is beautiful, clean and very comfortable.

Fantastic house with great amenities for a group of 10

  • 5 of 5

House has multiple decks, great view of the river, awesome media room, well equipped kitchen, hot tub, and many other amenities. Our family of grandparents, kids, and grandkids ranged in age from 7 to 70's and all age groups loved the place. All hated to leave. Bend is a wonderful place to visit and this was a great home base. Owner Rick is very nice and very helpful.
