Light-filled home designed to feel like a retreat in the Willamette Valley


This striking contemporary home was designed by Jordan Iverson Signature Homes, located in the heart of the Willamette Valley, Oregon. Built for a professional couple, they needed their home to be close to the city yet feel like a retreat. Finding a sprawling 10-acre site just ten minutes from their offices was more than ideal. This home is nestled along a ridgeline, offering plenty of seclusion and sweeping views over the Willamette Valley.

Set on a gated property, there are just a few other houses in the area. This house is the smallest of the group, at just 2,800 square feet, which was intentional by the homeowners. They wanted to be sure that every room in the house was used so that they did not overbuild. This was the couple’s first home they had built together, having remodeled in the past. Therefore, building this custom home was a task they didn’t take lightly. The homeowners style was inspired by years of looking at design magazines and traveling.


Overall, this home reflects a unique fusion of styles, mixing contemporary with a nod to French design, a passion inspired from the homeowner’s travels. Large glass walls are sourced from Pella Windows & Doors. The architects combined dark, clean lines of the exterior with light, bright details inside and retro styled kitchen fixtures as well as a cast iron pedestal tub in the master. The end result was stunning. The most challenging interior detail was the floating steel and wood staircase, which was a piece of art in itself. It took 6 months of design, measuring, fabricating for a perfectly precision fit of all the elements.

The island is three pieces of walnut that were milled together by a custom woodshop. High-end appliances such as the Bertazzoni oven and range adds to this stunning kitchen. On the ceiling, the exposed beams are composed of knotty white oak, the same material as the hutch. Radiant heat flooring is installed underneath the flooring on the first level.

What We Love: This beautiful home in the Willamette Valley artfully blends the traditional style of Europe with the picturesque surroundings. Bright and airy living spaces are complimented by stylish furnishings, fixture and accessories. Overall this home offers an idyllic place to relax and unwind for these busy homeowner’s… Readers, please share your thoughts on the design of this home in the Comments below!

Above: The black trimmed windows are framed with a clean, contemporary metal. This allows for the views to be showcased while also flooding spaces with natural light. During the day, lights never need to be turned on, even in the winter. To maximize light, the home was sited just a few hundred feet from a drop-off, thereby preventing any obstacles from blocking the sunlight.

Above: The focal point of the living room is the gas-burning fireplace. A surround of ledgestone wraps from the interior to the exterior of the dwelling. The trim around the firebox is a 10-inch border of blackened steel. A floating hearth is composed of a slab of slate, trimmed white oak.
