Oregon natives John & Debbie Grimm would like to welcome you to our home in the Dundee Hills, situated on what we named “Hoot Owl Hill”, with views of both the Willamette Valley and Chehalem Mountain. Our custom designed home is situated on 3.21 acres surrounded by a forest of trees for your privacy. 2,800 square feet of open floor plan and large picture windows provide gorgeous views of the snow-topped CASADE MOUNTAINS and colorful HOT AIR BALLOONS that float over the valley. You may be lucky to catch a glimpse of wildlife that frequents our property. Just minutes away, you will find premier wineries of the OREGON WINE COUNTRY and award-winning restaurants. More gorgeous views and an open sky at night for star gazing are yours on our private patio where a large, 6 person hot tub awaits.
Our home features a large open kitchen which is fully equipped for a quick meal or a gourmet feast. Guests find seating at the kitchen island, in the adjacent nook, or in the formal dining area. A door in the kitchen leads out onto our terraced deck equipped with a gas grill, and ample seating area for entertaining or just relaxing. Take the stairs down to our vegetable garden and pick something for dinner in our seasonal garden. In the garden you will find blueberries, artichokes, lettuce, tomatoes, onions etc. Take a stroll around our hillside property, look for our koi in the pond and enjoy the landscape we have created. Over the last ten years, John and Debbie have incorporated Oregon’s flora and designed an extensive landscape with natural elements that welcome birds. You will find if you sit quietly for some time that many of our bird species will come to the water feature to bathe and feed from the feeders. You will be charmed by hummingbirds, jays, robins, hawks, sparrows, and much more.
Climb the path up into the trees behind the house and you will find a campfire setting with a fire pit and firewood supplied to enjoy an evening under the stars. We have enjoyed making s’mores after dinner and think you might, too!
After exploring the area and experiencing the wonderful wineries, come home and relax. Investigate your next day’s adventure on the computer with broadband and printer supplied. Entertain yourself with a large screen TV (with DVD and stereo system) or board games and cards.
For a restful sleep, the master suite on the main floor has a king size bed, walk-in closet, spacious master bath with a private, two person jetted tub, and windows looking out onto a natural landscape. The office/den can convert to a sleeping area with a queen size futon and gas fireplace. Two upstairs bedrooms with queen beds share a full bath and windows with beautiful views of the valley. An upstairs reading nook allows you to kick back and enjoy a book or cup of coffee while the morning sun streams in from the windows.
Our most unique and talked about feature is a regulation full-size basketball court with a sport court floor, in a separate recreational building on the property. On the main floor are a full bath and kitchen area with microwave, sink and refrigerator. There is a large screen TV, and the stereo’s speaker system is wired for sound throughout the building. Above the kitchen area is a recreation room with pool table, electronic dartboard, and seating area. This area is ideal for a small party or family gathering. The recreation area accommodates up to 50 guests.
We think this is a perfect place for so many events and activities…a guy’s golf getaway, a wedding party, family reunion, girls’ weekend, romantic retreat, or a work retreat. The versatility is endless. Just ask us and we can work with you for your occasion or conference.
