This is an artist's home, filled with many colors and works of art, as well as some other creative flares, such as a heart-shaped bush in front of the house, the artist installed mosaic granite counter top, 1960s chandelier and more. We love our home for the beauty and large amount of open space it offers. We enjoy our wood burning panoramic stove and bright morning and afternoon sunshine.
Our home includes originals of artwork installed in NASA facilities, Kaiser Permanente hospitals, Conrad Hilton hotels, Deschutes Brewery and brewpub, numerous public universities, and featured in the television shows: The Big Bang Theory, Portlandia, Two Broke Girls, and Scandal.
Should you get tired of the Bend sunshine, cozy up in our massage recliner or massage reclining loveseat next to our wood stove and enjoy the 300 Mbps business grade wi-fi, 2018 Samsung Q9 75" 4K TV with Netflix and Amazon Prime - powered by a 5.2 Channel in-wall Marantz surround theater system. Our Filmon.TV
unit (popular in Europe, not common in US) enables a living room computer, and adds 700 channels to the TV lineup.
In 2017 the deck was remodeled, and we added a Clearwater Monaco Hot Tub. It's 98 jets, mood lighting, and integrated bluetooth sound system will ease you into comfort after a day of hiking, skiing, fishing, or golfing. The tub utilizes ozone and UV technology to continually purify the water, eliminating the need for irritating chlorine systems used in most spas.
Bend's high desert air can be dry and dusty when it storms. In 2017 we replaced our HVAC system to include a whole house humidifier, double UV air purifier, and a Lennox Pureair electric air cleaning system. The air in our home has been clean and comfortable every day of the year.
King sized ©Tempur-Pedic memory foam mattress in master bedroom. Queen ©Tempur-Pedic mattress in middle bedroom. Two double beds in corner bedroom. 2018 added Queen ©Tempur-Pedic foldaway bed in living room.
The Neighborhood: Quiet, friendly neighborhood in NE Bend.
Getting Around: Almost everything in Bend is less than a 15 minute drive. We are walking distance from restaurants, a state park, numerous city parks, and a convenience store. Downtown Bend is a 10 minute drive or a 20 minute bike ride away.
