Glamorous Neighbors

By Jené DeSpain, July 15, 2020

Call me bias, but Oregon is one of the most spectacular states to live in. As a child, I grew up visiting Hoyt Arboretum, Jenkins Estates, and the Grotto with my family and delighted in the glimpses of the local peacocks who lived at these parks. Their wild calls, loud and unlike any other bird’s, and their slow lurching movements fascinated me. I couldn’t take my eyes off them while they undulated in and out of view among the trees. They seemed both at ease with their interactions with us humans while vigilant in their caution towards us. It was always a cherished experience to see them during our family outings.

This last weekend, I was out in Rhododendron Oregon, setting up the staging for a beautiful mid-century home I’m putting on the market this week. The notable property is nestled at the end of a quiet block at the border of Mt. Hood National Forest land. My team and I were busily styling the home, when all of the sudden we heard the rare, but unmistakable, call from a peacock. We stepped out the door and there in the front garden was a large peacock, stopping by for a visit. He stayed around for the rest of the afternoon, curiously watching our movements. Around dusk, he sauntered on down the lane, regal in his familiarity with the neighborhood. In addition to endless incomparable aspects of this special home, this most glamorous neighbor only adds to the distinguished characteristics and charm it has to offer. Keep your eye out for my upcoming listing this weekend. Like the native peacocks, it’s going to be a coveted Oregon find – a knockout rare to come by and highly sought often when you do glimpse them on the market.
