Tour this spectacular modern ranch house in the Willamette Valley


This modern ranch house, nestled on 80 acres just outside Dallas, Oregon, was designed for a newly retired couple by Anderson Shirley Architects in collaboration with Kraft Custom Construction. Perched on a gently sloping terrain in the Willamette Valley, this home boasts built-in skylights, floor-to-ceiling windows, and vaulted ceilings to maximize the natural light.

Spanning a single level, this residence encompasses 3,000 square feet of living space and harmoniously integrates natural and industrial elements. This custom home beautifully combines a variety of materials, distinctive lines and angles, and attractive finishes. The property owners’ vision was to create a living environment that seamlessly connects indoor and outdoor spaces.


An open-plan living, kitchen, and dining room are at the heart of this home, while the owner’s bedroom wing is positioned to the north and the guest wing to the west. Both wings effortlessly embrace outdoor connectivity, while being linked to the east-facing patio. This patio showcases a covered seating area, complemented by a fireplace, a fire pit, a hot tub, and convenient access to the yard below.


What We Love: One of our favorite design features in this modern ranch house is the beautiful dual-sided fireplace in the living room that also can be seen on the back patio. Expansive walls of glazing not only help to maximize the views of nature surrounding this home but provide an abundance of natural light. Overall, this home provides its occupants with an idyllic retirement home for comfortable living and entertaining.

I don’t suppose you could also share the name of the kitchen island stone?
Great house!
