Welcome to Stevens Road, a Legacy Ranch and Estate in Southern Oregon. This 100-acre property maintains complete privacy, stretching eastward down a gentle hillside under the cover of a high ridge. Located along the I-5 corridor, midway between the Bay Area and Portland, the Ranch is a five-minute drive to conveniences, twenty minutes to the Medford International Airport, multiple major medical facilities and superstores, and forty-five minutes to world-class theatre, award-winning wineries and historical towns. Facing the sunrise and the breathtaking Mt McLoughlin, this extraordinary property provides the perfect balance between the expansive beauty of rural life and the delights of modern living. The main home boasts over 10,000 square feet of living space and state of the art ICF construction, energy efficiency and Control4 smart home technology. The Ranch includes two additional residences, a 3,000-square foot home and a 3-bedroom log cabin, as well as an historic red-roofed barn, a climate-controlled greenhouse, a shop, oak savannahs, dryland pasture, and 37 irrigated acres.
The entrance gate to the property is remote controlled and can be opened via smartphone. Impeccably maintained oak savannas guide the way past the second home, the log cabin and the red roofed barn, to the main residence set beautifully under the magnificent Oregon sky.
An arched double doorway opens to a grand entranceway with an elegant chandelier, delicate wall sconces and inset shelves for sculptures, bestowing the timeless grace of European design. Just beyond, a spacious living room features a vaulted cathedral ceiling, a gas operated fireplace with a wood burning option, and four French doors (2 with phantom screens), that open to a large covered deck. The stunning view stretches over the valley to the peak of Mt McLoughlin. A formal dining area sits aside the central living space, with still enough room for a piano or second sitting area at the south end. Tile flooring and clean lines maintain an airy, modern feel.
To the right of the living space, the Master Suite centers on a large bedroom, with four skylights and French doors leading to the upper deck and large picture windows capture an amazing sunrise view. Power shades, remote controls and a coffee bar, provide the essentials for deep rest and private mornings. The bathroom is expansive and has His and Hers wings with each including private baths, fully-equipped walk-in closets and dressing areas. Between is a large, central jetted-tub with a two-sided fireplace. ‘His’ wing converts to a Safe Room via a hidden door. The en-suite office features two beautiful built-in desks and cabinetry.
To the left of the living room, the California Chestnut wood floor leads to a marvelous, open kitchen, a show-stopping space for both family time and casual entertaining. Combining high-end chef amenities with powerful wooden ceiling beams, large windows and a sculptural arch over the six-burner Wolf cooktop, this room surrounds you in the comfort and elegance of a French country kitchen. Two large center islands are joined by a carved Black Walnut corner to form an L shape that doubles the glittering granite counter space, custom cabinetry and drawer space, and features open shelving for decorative pieces. Opposite a built-in desk and bookshelf, French doors with phantom screens lead to the deck and sumptuous view. The grand space extends into a large family area with room for an informal breakfast table as well as couch and armchairs, facing built-in cabinetry and a flat screen TV. A powder room is conveniently located between the kitchen and living room spaces.
The butler’s pantry extends the elegance and attention to detail with more than ample shelving, a bright window, granite countertops, and a center butcher block island, below hanging pots and three powerful ceiling beams. Beside the butler’s pantry is the well-appointed laundry room with ample storage and counter space.
The main floor guest room suite has a private entrance, gorgeous ensuite bathroom with large step in tile shower, lavatory room and a marvelous vanity.
On the lower level, the elevator and stairs open onto a stylish brown and white checkered cork floor that leads to a spacious billiards room with a beamed ceiling. To the left, a large, lively entertainment space enjoys a full wet bar, kitchen, 65” TV, half bath and French doors that open to the patio and Koi pond. Adjacent is a beautiful, temperature-controlled wine cellar with stunning woodwork and a tasting table, designed in Tuscan style.
Opposite the entertainment area, the Caretaker’s suite is a completely self-contained studio apartment with a private entrance, separate garage and private patio. This lovely living space is adorned with a kitchenette, full bath, ample closet and storage area, and a Murphy bed.
The downstairs guest bedroom has its own full bath and French doors leading to the lower patio. The room is spacious and features great views as well. There is a second laundry room on the lower level, mechanical room, large exercise room and a hidden room tucked behind a hallway bookshelf.
The entire house features state of the art Geothermal climate control with radiant flooring heat on multiple zones, plus forced air for heating and cooling. Roof-top Solar Panels are on a net metering system that sells power back to the grid. “Earth Advantage” energy efficient certification for the house was achieved. The home is handicap accessible and equipped with an on-demand back-up generator. The attached, oversized two-car garage is double depth and features a full bathroom and back garage door for a golf cart or other vehicles.
Outside, the landscaping is exquisite with a highly manicured, rambling Koi pond in the back and flowing water feature in the front that provides a lovely ambiance inside the home when the windows are open. The waterproof upper deck is just under 1500 square feet, 800 covered and 650 in the open air. An exterior spiral staircase connects the deck and lower patio. The lower patio space provides an additional 1,470 square feet of covered outdoor living space for entertaining or relaxing.
The Second Residence is surrounded by charming floral plantings and delicate maples. Over 3,000 square feet of living space center on an open floor plan for the living room, dining area and kitchen. The slate rock fireplace and vaulted ceilings echo the craftsmanship and grandeur of the main house. Maple hardwood floors and eight-foot high doorways provide elegance and spaciousness from floor to ceiling. The kitchen is fully equipped and joined by a well-appointed pantry. The Master Suite enjoys a vaulted ceiling and doors leading to an outdoor patio with lattice covering, slate flooring and a small Koi pond. The large en-suite bath is distinguished by Italian marble, a jetted tub and Baha shower with two shower heads. The walk-in closet is fully equipped with custom built-in cabinets. At the opposite end of the home on the main floor are two guest bedrooms that share a full bath and a second outdoor patio. Upstairs, the large recreation room over the two-car garage, has its own full bath and a small hobby room. This house also has a geothermal forced air heating and air conditioning with three zones for temperature control.
The Third Residence is a spectacular 3-bedroom log cabin with glorious views. The centerpiece of this 1,700 square-foot abode is a living room with wood-beams and soaring ceiling. Ample windows bring the outdoors in, giving the effect of being inside a luxurious tree house. The master bedroom, with full en-suite bath, sits atop an exposed wooden staircase with a small balcony, in this tri-level plan. Two guest bedrooms on the lower floor share a full bath. The kitchen is spacious and mixes wooden beams, white cabinetry and large terracotta tile flooring, producing an inviting, rustic country feel. The deck is covered and enjoys an extraordinary view.
The red roofed Barn is the oldest structure on the property and lends a nostalgic charm as well as a home to an enormous barn owl. The Barn has a tack room and four horse stalls. The exterior corral is fenced with four-rail vinyl fencing. The arena, adjacent to the lower pasture, is also enclosed with four rail vinyl fencing.
The climate-controlled greenhouse is a very special feature on the Ranch. Inside, flowers and non-regional fruits, like citrus and bananas, grow. Just outside is a fruit orchard. There is a fenced-in outdoor garden between the log home and second residence as well. With the ability to tend livestock and animals, the Ranch provides an excellent opportunity to create a permaculture environment with a focus on sustainability. Irrigation water is supplied via a ditch system, from the Eagle Point Irrigation District. The irrigation covers 37 acres. The property historically has run cattle but provides the potential for vineyard or other agriculture. The shop is a well-appointed necessity for the property. There is fencing along the entire perimeter of the 100 acres.
Domestic water is supplied to by a common water system for all three homes. Two wells fill four, 2,000-gallon storage tanks near the shop. The system then pumps water to each home on demand. The main house has an additional 6,000 gallons of water storage. The system provides redundancy and peace of mind. Each home is serviced by its own septic system and electric meter. Both the main home and the second home have the convenience of propane for cooking and other appliances.
From sunrise to sunset, this property has unique and heartwarming views. A stunning sunrise in the morning is complemented by a late afternoon sun that casts down an incredible warm light, painting the valley and distant mountains with a vibrant glow. When the sun begins to set behind the ridge, Mt McLoughlin, the sweeping pastures and the small distant pond turn a shell pink.
