Property description

Our home is a balance of terraced gardens, stone paths, deck and Jacuzzi under a canopy of Cedar trees. Situated 25 min. from PDX, 35 min to Portland, we are the gateway to the Gorge, walking trails of the Sandy River, and 25 minutes from Mt. Hood.
The entire backyard of our property sits on the bank of Cedar Creek. A stunning Mt. Hood glacier sourced tributary that feeds into the Sandy River nearby. Walk out of the master bedroom right onto the deck overlooking the Creek. The dining room as well leads out directly onto the deck. Sit in the Jacuzzi on the deck, relax and watch the water flow downstream, or find your favorite reading spot on one of the several benches or swings on the property. Relax and read by the coy pond and small waterfall.

The layout of the house is one of many vaulted ceilings, windows and natural light, creating a unique contemporary fusion with a fun rich palate of colors to warm you. There are two wood burning stoves. One is a fireplace insert in the family room and the other is a wood pallet stove in the dining room (each room including the bathroom has its own heaters, the house has been recently completely insulated)
The master bedroom with a queen size bed, has a wall of windows looking out onto the creek, and the giant cedars in the backyard. You will fall asleep to the sounds of the creek rushing by. You have your own direct door access to the deck and the Jacuzzi.
The 2nd bedroom is a fully functional den with a twin sofa that folds out into either 2 separate singles or one full size bed, there is a wall mounted internet compatible TV for you to use your Netflix, Hulu etc. The den has a desk with several full large monitors to check in at home or work as needed. There is high speed wireless internet throughout the house. (The internet speeds are suitable for financial trading, movie down streaming and gaming.)
The 3rd bedroom is in most case will not be accessible - special request can be made. This bedroom has a loft with a Japanese full-size futon, an electronic piano in the downstairs sitting area awaits your fingers.

We are on a water well, the water is delicious, but shower pressure needs patience to get up to speed. just turn it on a little ahead. We ask to run dishwasher and washing machine alternatively after showers and last thing at night. A little conservation and water management. If it is not a problem great, if so, not a great fit.

The kitchen is fully functional and is open to the family room, with stools for counter eating (great for kids). There is a slight burn mark next to the stove (sorry gift from a guest). The bathroom is heated with a claw foot tub. There is a full size utility room with washer and dryer. The garage is for the owner only, but there is plenty of parking in the drive way.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I have lived in Prague, CZ and Krakow, PL for over 14 years, then Mexico city for 3 years and Victoria on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada for a little under two years.. We Moved to Oregon about 3 years ago, and are thrilled to share our experiences here with anyone wanting to come and visit and see what this area has to offer. My wife and I live at the base of Mt. Hood just outside Portland, Oregon, a stunningly beautiful but treacherous little volcano for climbing, fun skiing and wonderful hikes. We enjoy mountain climbing, rock climbing, scuba diving and trekking. Most of all great food, cooking ourselves or having others cooking and just getting to eat it - anywhere in the world anytime. We welcome you to stay at our home and relax and let the beauty of being in the quiet of the cedar tree forest, alongside the rushing glacial water of Cedar Creek which runs the entire length of our back yard. We look forward to hosting you, whether it be for a short retreat from Portland to release the work day stress or from anywhere in the world.
