The Drake Subdivision is located in the heart of Oregon on the north side of Pierson Park, and offers oversized lots with architecturally striking homes.


Your journey into perfection starts with a welcoming covered porch that leads you to an entry door having dual sidelights that illuminate the open, two-story foyer.


Transoms over generous windows flank the gas fireplace in this two-story great room.


Inside, to your immediate left is the dining room, with windows galore. Directly off the foyer is a great room having a cathedral ceiling and large windows with transoms above, enhancing the feeling of limitless space by inviting natural light in abundance. The gas fireplace surround and hearth is midnight black ceramic tile. A white wood mantel is ready for your family photographs.

Off the great room is a dine-in area with pantry and large sliding doors to a sizeable patio. The kitchen offers brushed stainless steel appliances and granite counters with dual under mounted stainless sinks. Pendant lights hang over the island with snack bar.

A mudroom space has a laundry room with window, a large coat closet, and leads to the attached two-car garage.

The master suite begins to right of the foyer. Two large windows afford a dynamic view of nature and one more window on an opposing wall adds to the sunlight streaming into this comfortable haven. The next room off the bedroom offers dual sinks with granite counters having espresso-toned cabinets underneath. An over-sized step-in shower with molded seat is ready for relaxation, and an extra deep soaking tub sits nearby. A door separates the water closet and a linen closet is nearby.

Just off the master bath suite is a room-sized walk-in closet full of natural light from the large window.

Upstairs here are three bedrooms, a linen closet, plus a bonus room and a full bath. The large basement is unfinished.

This enchanting home reflects the essence of style. The covered porch and brick entryway lead into a dynamic foyer and an accent dining room fit for a magazine cover. The dining room has a lowered ceiling, and is defined by two distinctive white columns that offset the intimacy of this space. An adjoining great room offers an open floor plan with a gas fireplace having a neutral-toned tile surround and white wooden mantle.


Warm cherry toned cabinets highlight open spaces.


The adjacent dine-in area has large sliding doors leading to an outdoor patio. The welcoming kitchen is next, with ample cherry-toned cabinets and a granite topped island with snack bar. Fitted with brushed stainless appliances, this kitchen has everything for the serious cook. The dual stainless sinks have a pullout spray faucet, ready to help rinse off vegetables. Just outside the kitchen is a mudroom with a full sized guest closet, and a doorway to the attached two-car garage.

An arched doorway leads to two bedrooms, awash in natural light from generous windows. Nearby is found a full bathroom with a tub and shower combination and beautiful granite countertops.

The master suite is the heart of this home. The custom-tiled extra large step-in shower has one built in seat, and the set-in soap area is also tiled. The tiles match and contrast in both color and direction. Dual sinks with granite countertops have cherry toned cabinets beneath, and the water closet is in a separate room. The master walk-in closet is a story and a half high, so your storage possibilities are endless. This large basement is unfinished.
