Anyone who has ever had the privilege of living on the waterfront will tell you that this is living.
On the western edge of Oregon’s Oswego Lake is an exclusive district known as the Gold Coast. The neighborhood enjoys access to recreational and water activities. Most of the homeowners in the close-knit community live there full time and share a love of spending time outdoors.
The lake is active but not busy, according to the offices of LUXE real estate agency, with a balance of boaters, kayakers and people on stand-up paddleboards.
Boasting 80 feet along the waterfront is a newly built custom home designed to take in views of the full expanse of the lake. Now for sale, the property features resort-style outdoor living space, two finished garages that can accommodate a total of six cars and a gated motor court anchored by a mature oak tree.
The 6,405 square feet of contemporary living space is adorned with handcrafted details, wide-plank white oak and Italian porcelain tile floors, disappearing sliding doors, hand-painted wallpaper, floating-style staircase and custom cabinetry.
The open-plan living room flows into the dining room and an entertainer’s backyard complete with gas torches, dining patio, outdoor kitchen, swimming pool, lawn and fire pit. The boathouse has a rooftop deck, kitchenette and boat lift. There’s a second boat lift outside.
A wall of windows frames water views in the two-story living room, which has an industrial-vibe fireplace clad in hot-rolled steel panels. The custom-designed wine room off the dining room is temperature-controlled with glass walls on two sides and storage for 2,800 bottles.
The kitchen is equipped with a six-burner range, two ovens, quartz waterfall-edge island with bar seating and walk-in pantry. The adjacent bar contains seating, floating shelves for bottle storage, a dishwasher and Scotsman ice maker.
Other living spaces include an office, media room, five bedrooms, five bathrooms and powder room. A deck with a glass railing, power window shades and dressing room-style closet outfit the primary suite.
The home, topped by a metal roof and clad in smooth stucco, is the creation of Donnie Schmidt of the multidisciplinary design firm Centerfield Studio, Traci Porterfield and Tiffany Keale of Circa Interiors, and David Csaszar of Homecraft Development.
Terry Sprague, the founder of LUXE, is the listing agent. The asking price is available on request.
