Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 14)

You'll love this one of a kind house, located in a one of a kind spot!

The 4000 sq. ft. home is in a gated subdivision on the Deschutes River. The back looks out at the river and across to the river trail where bikers and hikers pass by throughout the day. With no houses across the river, it feels like you're out in the country, but you're right in town!

The main level is mostly great room with huge picture windows looking out to the river. The spacious kitchen with seating at the marble island is a natural gathering spot - and cooks will love the fully equipped kitchen with high end appliances including a 6 burner gas cooktop. The other side of the great room is the living area which has a gas fireplace and 70' HD TV with surround sound. Stepping outside onto the main deck, you will find yourself looking down on one of the prettiest sections of the Deschutes River. This is a fabulous place to spend the evenings. The sun sets early behind Awbrey Butte so there is a long twilight. Also on the main level is a full bathroom and an office/bedroom with a queen size bed.

Upstairs are two bedrooms. One is a nice sized bedroom with a queen bed and its own full bath. The other is the master. It's very spacious with a king bed, sitting area, and a huge private deck out over the roof. The bathroom is over the top with dual sinks, walk-in shower, jetted bath, and a washer and dryer.

Go downstairs to the lower level and you'll find yourself in the game room. It has a full size pool table, arcade games, pub table and chairs, couches, a 40' TV and great views of the river. Adjacent to the game room, there is a spacious bedroom with a terrific river view and a queen size bed. There is also a huge bunk room with two sets of bunkbeds and a queen bed. Further back you'll find a theater with a 100' screen and high quality surround sound. There's a PlayStation 3 that's really cool on the big screen with the surround sound. Rounding out the bottom level are two full bathrooms. The best part of the basement level is the covered granite patio overlooking the river. Watch the wildlife while you enjoy the shade on a warm summer day; or soak in the hot tub after skiing in the winter.

About Rick Gordon

I'm a carpenter / general contractor. I moved to Bend from Hawaii with my wife who grew up here. Since I like to golf, snowboard, and mountain bike I can't think of a better place to live.

Rick Gordon purchased this house in 2003

Why Rick Gordon chose Bend

This house is the culmination of years of dreaming, planning, work, and a little luck. A friend found the lot while visiting one of the neighbors. I couldn't believe that there was a lot on the river that was so conveniently located yet didn't even feel like it was in town. After considering a partnership with him to do a spec home, my wife and I decided to buy it for ourselves. Four years and many plans later, we finally started building. We finally moved in February of 2010. Unfortunately, my wife passed away from cancer. Suddenly I found myself with this huge house that is too much for my son and me. Since I love this house too much to sell, I decided to finish off the basement and make it a vacation rental so others can enjoy it. Of course, I also like that I can come use it still.

Fantastic house with great amenities for a group of 10

  • 5 of 5

House has multiple decks, great view of the river, awesome media room, well equipped kitchen, hot tub, and many other amenities. Our family of grandparents, kids, and grandkids ranged in age from 7 to 70's and all age groups loved the place. All hated to leave. Bend is a wonderful place to visit and this was a great home base. Owner Rick is very nice and very helpful.

Wonderful spot on the river

  • 5 of 5

We came back to this house for another big family vacation. The house is perfect for us - it is nice to be able to spread out with lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. We really enjoyed cooling off in the river with the kids. Bike rides into town and bike rides going north on the Deschutes River Trail were both highlights that can be done by riding a short distance to Sawyer Park and picking up the trail there.

Beautiful home and setting!! Loved the location as well.

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 14! The kids never wanted to leave...so much to do! Just a few things to note: the home does not have central air conditioning except for the top 2 bedrooms. Bend had very high temperatures the week we stayed and the home (just the top 2 levels...the basement level kept fairly cool) was quite hot/uncomfortable the majority of the time. We brought in fans for sleeping which helped considerably. In all honesty, this was the only drawback to this gorgeous house and if you spend a lot of time outdoors; instead of inside, this won't be a huge issue for you. Our entire family is pretty active and we loved having a walking and/or biking trail right in the backyard. Some of us even tubed on the river right to the house...dropped in the water under the bridge at the Riverfront Deschutes Inn and floated for a good 45 minutes (wear life jackets if not a strong swimmer as the beginning can be a bit sketchy for some.) The home is stocked with most essentials you will need (toilet paper, paper towels, soap, shampoo & conditioner, etc.) including beach towels. Will most definitely stay here again!

Great location for our coast to coast group.

  • 5 of 5

Well located, well equipped, with plenty of space for the whole family. It's not always easy to get everyone together when we're scattered from coast to coast. This was a wonderful solution! Thank you, Rick, for sharing your home.

Fantastic vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time to stay at this home for a family vacation. Rick is great to work with and very organized. The home is perfect for our needs with everyone having their own space. The grandkids love the game area down stairs. The house was very clean and well stocked on our arrival. Hope to do it all again. (Just have to add that I really missed the extra fridge in the garage for drinks, but we dealt with it). Thanks for sharing this home with us.

Owner's Response: The extra fridge in the garage finally gave up. It was only there because I didn't want to move it, but since you liked it, I will find a newer, more efficient model to replace it before you come back.

Amazing and Peaceful all in one place!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at this incredible property. There were 14 of us total and there was plenty of space and nice bathrooms. Great views off of all 3 decks and so much nature to watch morning to night. We will return again next year and plan on making this our tradition.
