Functionality, openness, charm -- the home at The Drake, 4745 S. Teal Drive, Oregon, has it all. Let your style guide the design of your next home and find everything you ever imagined and more.


The faint scent of fresh paint lingers in the air as you cross the foyer. The squeak of your shoes against the finish of the new hard wood in the entryway calls your attention to the openness of the floor plan. As you take in your surroundings, the stacked stone fireplace across the room catches your gaze and visions of family gatherings and special occasions flood your thoughts. This is where you are supposed to be.



At The Drake in Oregon, a neighborhood of beautiful custom-designed properties creates a welcoming backdrop for your own dream home. Childers Realty Ltd. guides you through the process of choosing your ideal lot, the most functional floor plan for your needs, and best investments you can make when designing your home to get the most out of your budget.

The featured home at The Drake, 4745 S. Teal Drive, Oregon, provides a glimpse of what makes homes at The Drake so special.

"We really want to work with the owner to take the original design to the next step," said David Childers, broker and realtor at Childers Realty. "Their vision is what really takes these homes to the next level."



On Teal Drive at The Drake, visitors will be greeted to a ranch-style 2,150 square-foot-home. Because homeowner loved the design of this home, but wanted something a little bigger, Childers said one of the first things he did was grow the footprint of the house to fit the particular needs of the homeowner.

The feeling openness is noticed upon entering the home. Traffic flows with ease throughout the house, which is anchored by the central family room.



In the heart of the home, conversations carry through family, kitchen and dining spaces without interference, and 10-foot ceilings and ample natural light create an airy atmosphere.

The home's built-in architectural features include a stacked stone fireplace and columns to create a stately feel while effectively setting each room apart.



The large kitchen features beautiful custom cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a large island for additional countertop and storage space needed for entertaining the family.



The family room also features a sliding glass door that opens to a spacious covered cement patio, which the perfect spot for grilling during the summer months or relaxing after work. Homes at The Drake feature professional landscaping and a sprinkler system so your lawn will look lush throughout the summer.



Guests are treated to their own private wing of the home, which is located off the right side of the family room. Two large bedrooms, both featuring attractive French doors that open to large closets, are positioned on either side of the first full-bath. The neutral-colored and carpeted rooms have an abundance of natural light and are perfect for those who enjoy having a bit of a getaway while still remaining close to the action.

The master bedroom is featured on the left wing of the home and features a private bathroom and a walk-in closet.

In addition to the granite countertops, the master bathroom features double sinks, a makeup table, a private water closet, and a large walk-in ceramic tile shower complete with a bench and mosaic details. A door on the far end of the bathroom leads the homeowner into their new extra large walk-in closet and changing room.
