Here is a home quite like no other, built following appropriate mathematical elements in its design, harkening the builders of old, creating what is known as the Divine Proportion. The Divine Proportion exists everywhere in nature, but here the principle is applied to modern architecture. Famed cathedrals and the like adhered to this concept in an attempt to inspire all those who entered, and this home does not disappoint. Upon entry, the pavered drive is reminiscent of an Italian villa courtyard with authentically proportional solid limestone columns quarried in Indiana, shaped in Michigan and sent by train to Oregon. From a grand foyer, you can see the home is perfectly symmetrical, each wing a mirror image of the other, perfectly proportionate. On this main level find a chef’s kitchen with nothing less than the finest, and a dining area outfitted by famed local furniture designer, Robert Seliger. Two living spaces overlook the manicured grounds, the Deschutes River, and territorial views. In the South wing find an office, solarium and guest suite. Downstairs is perfect for both relaxation and entertaining. A theater room boasts a 102” drop down screen, sound system, and fully loaded wet bar with all the amenities. From here, enter the atrium, ideal for wine tasting events, as it is adjacent to the 15,000+ bottle wine cellar. The 500 square foot cellar is professionally equipped with a commercial cooling and humidifying system and mahogany racks. The South wing is home to another spacious guest suite, enjoying lofty ceilings and territorial views. The North wing of the uppermost level is home to two more generous suites. In the center, find a second spacious laundry room. Atop the awe-inspiring spiral staircase here, gain entry to the upper patio deck with Byzantine marble pavers and gorgeous river views. The South wing of this upper level is dedicated to the master suite. The Southeast corner master bath is nothing less than extraordinary and situated to maximize both views and privacy. Enjoy travertine floors and ample shower, granite counters and vanity, and relax in a jetted tub. The master bedroom looks to both the river and the mountains and features a corner fireplace and a separate West facing sitting area, perfect for reading and soaking up the Cascade views. With over two years of construction time and teams of the best professionals designing and crafting this home, to recreate this accomplishment would take years of planning, design and construction. Here, find the hard work completed for you, in a home built to last the tests of time. This is not a standard, dressed up structure, but rather a feat of the highest quality, no matter where you look. Here is a rock solid and well cared for home. Not only is this unique property a once in a lifetime opportunity in Bend, it is also set upon 5.5 rolling acres with private easements to access forest land and river trails, with protected view corridors to the famed Deschutes river and Cascade Mountains. Fly fish, cross country ski, or go trail running out your back door, or drive 25 minutes to Mt Bachelor Ski resort. All this, yet it is only a 10 minute drive to both downtown Bend and the Old Mill district for shopping, eateries and cinema. Here, experience the best of all worlds in an idyllic mountain town.
