If you have an extended family, the two Master Suites are ideal to give the adults extra space and privacy. The backyard was designed for fun featuring 3 terraced levels (pool, activity yard, garden).

If you need storage, this property has it in Spades...Walk-In Closets...Numerous Hall Closets...Garage Storage...Built-In Cabinets...

Sitting at an approximate elevation of 500 feet, this property features a stunning view of the western end of the Tualatin Valley and benefits from cooling afternoon breezes in hot Summer months. While this property has no fences, the size of the property and the trees and bushes around the periphery lend to substantial privacy. The current floor plan was designed to take advantage of the sloping property line.

Come home and relax from the sights and sounds of Portland and its suburbs. Amazing views, space and privacy create the setting of a Northwest dream...
