A modern rustic farmhouse with glorious views of Oregon’s high desert


Norman Building & Design is responsible for the creation of this modern rustic farmhouse nestled in the golf resort community of Tetherow in Bend, Oregon. This spectacular neighborhood is an idyllic place to call home, cradled beneath the snowcapped Cascade peaks and situated among the ponderosa pines of the Deschutes National Forest.

Inside this modern farmhouse with rustic touches, you will find roughly 3,600 square feet of living space, spread out over a single level. There are three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a study, and a media room, along with a spacious (almost 1,800 square feet) garage with storage for a ‘sprinter’ style RV.

Above: This custom pivoting front door is 6′ wide and 8′ tall. The door itself weighs 450 lbs yet opens and closes with the slightest pull. The hallway leads to the study and master wing of the farmhouse.

Above: In the home’s great room, the floor-to-ceiling windows by Jeld-Wen frame panoramic views of Oregon’s High Desert.


What We Love: This farmhouse dwelling offers warm and inviting living spaces with beautiful details throughout. Classic farmhouse touches can be found at every turn, from the sliding barn doors to the open shelving, distressed wood beams, and rustic wood flooring. Large walls of glazing help to capture views of the captivating landscape, providing a relaxed vibe to this comfortable home. Overall, we are loving every element of this welcoming home.

Above: In the kitchen, you will find a custom vent hood that is flanked by floating shelves.


Above: Distressed wood cabinets on the island are a counterpoint to the white perimeter cabinets.


Above: The pantry is just off the kitchen. The countertop and upper shelves are distressed, which is in line with the other wood surfaces in the home.


Above: This hall is adjacent to the dining room and kitchen. The unique ‘barn’ door style metal doors highlight the incorporated cabinet below the window. Floating shelves are featured on either side of the front entry door.


Above: The powder room features a custom-crafted distressed ‘vanity’ with a farmhouse-style sink. The unique mirror completes the space.


Above: In the laundry room, a unique sliding barn door hides the space when desired.


Above: The primary bedroom offers a stone-clad fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows capturing breathtaking views. The distressed beams act to warm the space visually and bring the high ceilings down to people scale.


Above: The primary bathroom boasts a free-standing tub and open shower. The dual vanities allow for ease of use while the shiplap brings texture to the otherwise white space.


Above: Another view of the primary bath allows you to see the mirrored barn door that conceals the closet. Shiplap is used to add texture and gloss to the space.


Above: The dual glass, wood, and metal barn doors help to define the office space without visually cutting it off. The space has a gas fireplace for warmth during the cold winter months.


Above: This functional office offers plenty of wall storage and a cozy fireplace. Large windows frame views of the golf course and spectacular landscape.


Above: A guest bedroom offers a private patio with a trellis covering. Ceiling beams transition to the walls to divide the shiplap element in the room.


Above: The guest bath features a walk-in shower just beyond the vanity. The custom vanity has the appearance of a piece of furniture with a vessel sink atop the quartz countertop.


Above: The media room is flooded with natural light from three sides, with french doors leading out to a covered patio. The windows overlook a large water feature on the surrounding golf course.



Above: Adjacent to the media room is a wine bar area. The bar door rolls back to disclose wine storage for reds, while to the right there are two refrigerator drawers to house drinks that need to chill.


Above: This second guest bath features a walk-in shower just to the left. The distressed cabinet anchors the space set off against the shiplap walls.


Above: The large garage features custom cabinets for storage and a washing station. The washing area is used to rinse off outdoor gear. The doorway leads into the home—to the right is the laundry and guest suite and to the left is the rest of the dwelling.


Above: This large covered patio is just off the great room. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide sweeping views from the interior. There is also a fire pit for outdoor entertaining.
