We love ogling real estate with interesting architecture and fascinating history, but sometimes it’s not so much the built environment as the surroundings that makes something notable. Take this five-bedroom, six-and-a-half bath home in Happy Valley, Oregon.
Located about 30 minutes southeast of Portland, the spacious 7,021-square-foot home sits on a hilltop location just minutes from hiking trails in Mount Scott Nature Park. There are panoramic views from almost every room, and in the living room large windows take advantage of Mt. Hood and valley vistas in the distance.
Multiple fireplaces add coziness, and perks include a 400-bottle wine cellar, a built-in vacuum system, a four-car garage with dog washing area, and a gym. The outdoor areas also shine. A large pool area has an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, pizza, oven, and refrigerator, and you can golf on your own personal putting green. Two outdoor fireplaces and a heater on the patio keep things comfortable, while a 10-foot deep waterfall adds ambiance.
