The Ross family finds the ONE!

By Robin Hakeman, February 17, 2020

Two years, one new baby and a lot of homes later, the Ross family has found the ONE! Sometimes you have to kiss a few frogs before you find your prince! My good friends, The Ross’s, needed more space for their family (of 6!) and set out to find the perfecthome a few years back. We ooh’ed over Hartung Farms beauties, Lake Oswego mansions and some of Bauer Woods’ best. In the end, the style of this 4,100 sq ft mid-century stunner won their hearts.

This home is so special for many reasons. It was built in 1950 and much of the original character is in tact. The wood paneling, angled ceilings and floor to ceiling windows really make the home shine. With 4 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms and much of the home on 1 level, there is room for the whole family. There is a bonus room and bar area with a garage door that opens to the patio and pool – perfect for summer entertaining. Upstairs, a loft area and bright room will serve as a bedroom for their oldest child.

Down a separate hallway, the master suite is spacious and private with views of the pool and landscape. Walk down a bamboo lined pathway behind the pool and find a secret hideaway equipped with a wine fridge, dart board and cable TV… the perfect man-cave or she-shed!

This family has big plans to make this home their own and I know that they will create magic with whatever they decide to do. I can’t wait to see the finished product and take a dip in the pool next summer!!! Thank you for trusting in me Ross’s! I am so excited for your family to make many memories at this gorgeous home. Congratulations!!!
