$3,900,000 / 20 Acres / Under Contract
Welcome to the Stevens Road Estate in Southern Oregon. This 20-acre property maintains complete privacy, stretching eastward down a gentle hillside under the cover of a high ridge. Located along the I-5 corridor, midway between the Bay Area and Portland, the Ranch is a five-minute drive to conveniences, twenty minutes to the Medford International Airport, multiple major medical facilities and superstores, and forty-five minutes to world-class theatre, award-winning wineries and historical towns. Facing the sunrise and the breathtaking Mt McLoughlin, this extraordinary property provides the perfect balance between the expansive beauty of rural life and the delights of modern living. This home boasts over 10,000 square feet of living space and state of the art ICF construction, energy efficiency and Control4 smart home technology.
An arched double doorway opens to a grand entranceway with an elegant chandelier, delicate wall sconces and inset shelves for sculptures, bestowing the timeless grace of European design. Just beyond, a spacious living room features a vaulted cathedral ceiling, a gas operated fireplace with a wood burning option, and four French doors (2 with phantom screens), that open to a large covered deck. The stunning view stretches over the valley to the peak of Mt McLoughlin. A formal dining area sits aside the central living space, with still enough room for a piano or second sitting area at the south end. Tile flooring and clean lines maintain an airy, modern feel.
To the right of the living space, the Master Suite centers on a large bedroom, with four skylights and French doors leading to the upper deck and large picture windows capture an amazing sunrise view. Power shades, remote controls and a coffee bar, provide the essentials for deep rest and private mornings. The bathroom is expansive and has His and Hers wings with each including private baths, fully-equipped walk-in closets and dressing areas. Between is a large, central jetted-tub with a two-sided fireplace. â€˜His' wing converts to a Safe Room via a hidden door. The en-suite office features two beautiful built-in desks and cabinetry.
To the left of the living room, the California Chestnut wood floor leads to a marvelous, open kitchen, a show-stopping space for both family time and casual entertaining. Combining high-end chef amenities with powerful wooden ceiling beams, large windows and a sculptural arch over the six burner Wolf cooktop, this room surrounds you in the comfort and elegance of a French country kitchen. Two large center islands are joined by a carved Black Walnut corner to form an L shape that doubles the glittering granite counter space, custom cabinetry and drawer space, and features open shelving for decorative pieces. Opposite a built-in desk and bookshelf, French doors with phantom screens lead to the deck and sumptuous view. The grand space extends into a large family area with room for an informal breakfast table as well as couch and arm chairs, facing built-in cabinetry and a flat screen TV. A powder room is conveniently located between the kitchen and living room spaces.
The butler's pantry extends the elegance and attention to detail with more than ample shelving, a bright window, granite countertops, and a center butcher block island, below hanging pots and three powerful ceiling beams. The small guest room suite has a private entrance on the main level and its own bathroom, next to a guest bathroom. Beside the butler's pantry is the well-appointed laundry room with ample storage and counter space.
On the lower level, the elevator and stairs open onto a stylish brown and white checkered cork floor that leads to a spacious billiards room with a beamed ceiling. To the left, a large, lively entertainment space enjoys a full wet bar, kitchen, 65â€ TV, half bath and French doors that open to the patio and Koi pond. Adjacent is a beautiful, temperature-controlled wine cellar with stunning woodwork and a tasting table, designed in Tuscan style.
Opposite the entertainment area, the Caretaker's suite is a completely self-contained studio apartment with a private entrance, separate garage and private patio. This lovely living space is adorned with a kitchenette, full bath, ample closet and storage area, and a Murphy bed.
The downstairs guest bedroom has its own full bath and French doors leading to the lower patio. The room is spacious and features great views as well. There is a second laundry room on the lower level, mechanical room, large exercise room and a hidden room tucked behind a hallway bookshelf.
The entire house features state of the art Geothermal climate control with radiant flooring heat on multiple zones, plus forced air for heating and cooling. Roof-top Solar Panels are on a net metering system that sells power back to the grid. â€œEarth Advantageâ€ energy efficient certification for the house was achieved. The home is handicap accessible and equipped with an on-demand back-up generator. The attached, oversized two-car garage is double depth and features a full bathroom and back garage door for a golf cart or other vehicles.
Outside, the landscaping is exquisite with a highly manicured, rambling Koi pond in the back and flowing water feature in the front that provides a lovely ambiance inside the home when the windows are open. The waterproof upper deck is just under 1500 square feet, 800 covered and 650 in the open air. An exterior spiral staircase connects the deck and lower patio. The lower patio space provides an additional 1,470 square feet of covered outdoor living space for entertaining or relaxing.
The climate-controlled greenhouse is a very special feature. Inside, flowers and non-regional fruits, like citrus and bananas, grow. Just outside is a fruit orchard.
From sunrise to sunset, this property has unique and heartwarming views. A stunning sunrise in the morning is complimented by a late afternoon sun that casts down an incredible warm light, painting the valley and distant mountains with a vibrant glow. When the sun begins to set behind the ridge, Mt McLoughlin, the sweeping pastures and the small distant pond turn a shell pink, until the lights of the valley begin to glow.
Please see Listing for â€œStevens Road, A Legacy Ranch and Estateâ€ for complete offering that includes 80 additional acres, 2 homes, barn, 37 irrigated acres and more.
Dear Robert, I think you are one of the nicest people on the planet, and for sure the best realtor. Thank you for all your hard work, great advice, patience, and for sticking in there with me. You really went "above and beyond". The world is a better place with people like you in it and I feel really lucky to have crossed paths with you"

"We appreciated Tim's hard work. We had 2 different real estate companies prior to meeting you, over the time of a couple years they each brought us 1 prospective buyer. You in turn brought us numerous prospective buyers along with several offers, with a final close in under 2 years. We feel that you had a knowledge of where and how to market our business so it was marketed in the right places and to the right people. As you well know when the sale was finalized it was at our asking price with little or no haggling.
We appreciate the fact that you were available 7 days a week, and willing to show the business even on a Sunday with very little notice. Tim Thank you once again.

"We were referred to Jason a few years ago. We were looking for our dream rural property, however, competition was high and inventory was low. Jason found us a great starter home until the right property came along. He continued to keep looking for us; one day we received a phone call that he “thinks he found the one.” We drove out to that day, and we immediately knew Jason was right ~ This was the dream property we had been waiting for! Jason stayed on top of every detail, and we can't thank him enough for listening to all of our needs and wants and finding the perfect property for our family. His attention to detail, care for his customers, integrity, understanding of the market, and work ethic shined every step of the way!"
