LAKE OSWEGO, OR 97034


One of only a few Rummer homes that were ever built in Lake Oswego. Effortless open-concept
living all on one level with a stunning high pitched double gable design and a floor plan that wraps
around the central atrium, flooding the entire home with light. Rummer’s signature post and
beam construction with vaulted wood tongue and groove ceilings throughout that will truly take
your breath away. Bring the outdoors in with the dramatic floor to ceiling windows that overlook
the forested lot. Step through the sanctuary of the central living area with its commanding brick
fireplace and take in the nature that surrounds you from the grand back deck. This secluded 1/2
acre lot is filled with lush greenery and large trees. Perfect location, just minutes to the lake and
adjacent to everything Lake Oswego has to offer.
