Welcome to Butte Creek Retreat – A Recreational Paradise - Situated in the pristine Cascade Mountain foothills of Southern Oregon, this home is perfect for someone looking to embrace all that a recreational lifestyle has to offer. Southern Oregon is known for its beauty and is characterized by four distinct seasons with mild winters, providing endless four season recreational opportunities. Southern Oregon is also widely recognized as a wine and culture center with close proximity to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, theatres, concert venues, and universities. This home is located just 9 miles from the Pacific Crest Trail, 7 miles from Fish Lake, 14 miles from the Lake of the Woods Resort, 76 miles from Crater Lake National Park and just 23 miles from the town of Eagle Point, making world class recreation and day-to-day conveniences easy to access.
This house is nestled on just over 32 acres of spectacular hillside forest setting with many old growth trees. The property is bordered by the fast moving, year round North Fork of Little Butte Creek, which is one of the most inspiring and majestic mountain creeks in the region. There are several undeveloped springs on the property as well. You can hike the numerous trails and camp or “glamp” in your own private yurt. Just a few minutes drive from this home are well known attractions such as Lake of the Woods, Fish Lake, Howard Prairie Lake, Mount McLoughlin and thousands of acres of public lands for great year-round recreation.
Beauty and Privacy Abound in this Gorgeous Forest Home - The main house is set well off the highway providing privacy and spectacular mountain views and is oriented with southern exposure to provide optimal lighting. As you approach the main home you are greeted by massive old growth cedar trees that provide a beautiful shaded canopy. The house itself is an unexpected gem nestled into the natural setting. The 4,823 square foot home is designed and built on two levels. Entry into the main level takes you through a foyer and laundry area where the home opens up into large rooms, high ceilings and unique and custom features. A large wood burning stove with custom rock hearth and pine beams is a focal point in the central part of the home. The living room will take your breath away with floor to ceiling custom arched windows on the prow front, soaring ceilings, with pine beams, unique custom built-ins, and French doors that open out onto the new large wrap around Trex deck. While surrounded by trees, the views are expansive and the room is designed to bring the outdoors in.
The well-appointed kitchen includes granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including a new convection oven, knotty pine cabinets, and curved built-in open shelving. The high ceilings, skylights, and wood beams create an open feel and the custom terra cotta tile carries from the kitchen into the dining room lending a hint of southwest flavor. The conveniently located adjacent dining room is spacious and includes a large custom tiled pass-through window into the adjacent living space. There is also a second pass-through window in the kitchen, perfect for parties and entertaining.
The second living space on the main floor provides convenient access to both the kitchen and dining room and could be used as a family room, play room, den, sitting room, or TV area. The large windows in this room open to the massive cedar trees just outside on the uphill slope, creating a beautiful and serene setting.
The master bedroom is huge! The dramatic wagon wheel style ceiling with alternating wood beams and skylights and the Jotul propane stove with custom tile hearth and surround create a dramatic effect for this room. Large windows create a treehouse effect that adds a sense of magic to the room. There is plenty of room for a spacious seating area, and there is a bonus room as you enter the master suite that would be perfect as a nursery or office space. The en suite master bath includes plenty of windows and custom tilework. The dual sinks in the oversize vanity, separate walk in shower, and step up sunken bath all create a spa like experience. There is also a large walk-in closet as part of the en suite master bath.
On the opposite side of the house there is an additional well-appointed full bath with dual sinks and a shower/tub combo. Two additional oversize bedrooms complete the main floor, one of which could be used as a second master suite, as it is connected to the hall bathroom. The third bedroom has a door out onto the attached deck which could be used as a separate entrance for guests or a home business. Both bedrooms are oversize with each having two closets, large windows, custom built-ins, and plenty of room for a comfortable seating area.
Endless Potential for Lifestyle, Pleasure and Business – In addition to the main floor living space, this home includes a fully finished daylight basement which can be incorporated into the main living area or kept as a separate apartment. This provides unlimited options including a separate self-contained living space for extended family, short or long term rental potential, space for an in-home business, or the ultimate man cave or art studio.
The downstairs area includes a separate entrance, living, dining, bed and bath. There is lots of lower level storage and the large entryway connects with the upper main living area through the attractive interior staircase, which can be separated and secured with the interior door. The lower living room has stunning floor to ceiling windows and double French doors that open out onto a large covered patio. A wood burning stove and custom built-ins add to the charm of this room. The full kitchen includes many charming details. There is a large custom tile counter with bar seating that is open to a large dining area with a striking glass block accent wall. The huge downstairs bedroom includes plenty of space for a private seating area. There is also a large bathroom with a step up sunken tub and separate shower.
In addition to the possibilities for the lower living space there is a 14’ by 32’ unfinished cedar sided studio next to the main house. This studio could be finished as a shop, craft room, artist retreat, or yoga studio. If that is not enough, this property also has a self-contained guest quarters cabin. Close to the main house, but secluded for privacy, the approximately 400 square foot, studio style cabin includes a main living area, kitchenette, wood stove, laundry hook ups, bath, and an open loft sleeping area. Further down the hill, the lower half of the property has the potential for expanded recreational use through the possibility of developing private camping sites near the creek or the establishment of a public campground.
Quality Construction and Unique Features Throughout – This home includes many one of a kind features including oversize rooms, knotty pine accents and trim throughout, distinctive custom built accents in almost every room, arched doorways and windows, extensive custom tilework, spectacular high ceilings with custom designs, wood beams, skylights, and Anderson windows and doors throughout. With stunning forest and mountain views, the entire home is designed to be part of the landscape and to create the effect of bringing the outdoors inside. Outside, the home is finished with tight knot cedar siding and a metal roof. There is an engineered drainage system to ensure the house is protected. Easy to maintain landscaping includes room for a green house, a raised bed garden area and several well producing fruit trees.
