A hike in the woods changed one couple’s lives.
One of the West Coast’s most contemporary homes was inspired by an ancient relic stone wall they discovered and built their home around. The juxtaposition between ancient and modernist created a stunning design against views of the Cascade Mountain Range, including Mount St. Helens, Hood, Rainier, and Adams.
On the market for the first time, the home is priced at $8,650,000, toptenrealestatedeals.com reports.
Created with an eclectic collection of building materials, the steel-travertine-and-glass home is accented with African slate, Indian and Brazilian granite, Chinese quartzite, Middle Eastern onyx, African rosewood, and sheets of stainless steel. Designed by Thompson Vaivoda & Associates on 10 sloping, wooded acres, the 11,807-square-foot home has four bedrooms, eight baths, and family and media rooms.
There are two guest suites with rare Japanese peanut-figured tamo ash and quilted maple, as well as a freestanding 1,127-square-foot guest house.
The lower level of the main home contains an indoor lap pool and opens to a terrace. There is an elevator for traversing all three floors.
Terry Sprague of LUXE Christie’s International Realty in Portland has the listing.
