The custom-built home in West Linn, Oregon, is priced at US $1.875 million.

LUXE

This picture-perfect cottage set in a clearing of tall Douglas firs and apple orchards didn’t happen by chance. It’s the fruition of an artist’s vision to create a European farmhouse on 2.5 acres in the Stafford area of West Linn, Oregon.

Set off a narrow lane, the 2,613-square-foot custom-built dwelling has the vibe of a century-old country home with functional space, unpretentious rooms and vintage accents. A koi pond and a gravel path separate a cedar and galvanized steel studio of nearly 1,300 square feet.

A wide wooden deck leads to the cedar shake-clad foyer at the front of the home, which opens to the living and dining rooms. Salvaged Douglas fir floors carry throughout the home.

A gas fireplace with a reclaimed wood mantle and vintage-style glass-front cabinets take center stage in the living room. Rustic barn doors open to the kitchen.

Symmetrical built-ins and windows flanking the living room fireplace lend an Arts and Craft ambiance … [+] to the space.

LUXE

White wainscoting, Venetian plaster walls and a chandelier bring a touch of elegance to the dining room.

The clean-lined kitchen features a handmade crackle ceramic subway tile backsplash, two farmhouse sinks, marble countertops and a six-burner Wolf range. Open shelving and light cabinetry complete the look.

A staircase off the formal dining room leads to the upstairs bedrooms.

LUXE

The breakfast nook sits under a vaulted ceiling of whitewashed planks. The hardwood floor is painted in a checkerboard design.

A corner home office and a powder room are also on the main floor.

Farmhouse sinks sit under both the windows in the functional kitchen.

LUXE

The primary suite and two guest bedrooms on the next level have rustic wood plank ceilings, crown molding and oil-rubbed bronze or crystal doorknobs. There are a total of four bathrooms.

The basement has two sets of French doors that open to a patio and the backyard. The detached two-car garage contains storage and workshop space.

Vaulted ceilings and a window seat are among features of the primary suite.

LUXE

And while the home may feel a world away, it’s only a five-minute drive to the shops, restaurants and businesses lining West Linn’s Historic Williamette Main Street and about 10 minutes to Lake Oswego.

Portland International Airport is about 22 miles away and downtown Portland, about 18.

A detached studio and a garage with workshop space sit on either side of the house.

LUXE

Terry Sprague of LUXE is the listing agent for 363 SW Tualatin Loop, West Linn, Oregon. The asking price is US $1.875 million.
