Less than 10 miles from Bend lies this exceptionally private, magnificent estate. Wild Horse Ranch is artfully nestled into the rim overlooking the gentle Deschutes River and frames gorgeous views of the inspiring Cascade Mountains to the west. Designed and built by two of Central Oregon's finest professionals, stunning architecture and masterful construction combine to create this generational masterpiece unrivalled in every way.
Behind the private gate lies a beautifully landscaped entryway leading past a garden pond and water features towards the main residence, passing by the pastures in front of the horse barn and round pen. The remarkable car barn with its defining landmark silo lies ahead.
The outstanding architecture features a low profile on either side of the main entry, highlighted by a flagstone staircase leading to the viewing tower with 360 degree views of the Cascade Mountains, the Deschutes River and the pastoral landscape. ICF construction with an attractive stucco exterior is enhanced by wood windows and doors, an authentic boosted clay tile roof and extensive use of Montana Mossy rock, native lava stone and Idaho Three Rivers flagstone.
Hand plastered walls and the finest custom cabinetry are the canvas throughout. Travertine stone and Hickory wood line the floors. The imported Italian Albertini wood windows and doors are stunning in form and function and the surrounding trim work is artisan made on-site. Doug Fir ceiling beams, fireplace mantles and handmade Doug Fir columns are perfectly matched with the Baldwin Hardware, custom forged iron work and handmade, interior doors. Six of the nine fireplaces throughout are wood-burning. Systems include a whole house sound system, state of the art projection systems and both Sirius and Apple TV. Low voltage lighting is a programmable system by Light Touch.
The entry with its Porte Cochere is sensational. A massive rock fireplace rising to meet the wooden beamed ceiling defines the Great Room, flanked on either side by the dining area and the built-in bar and music room.
The kitchen offers two gorgeous slab granite islands, a comfortable gathering area with large wood burning fireplace and media center, and morning room, all with stunning views. Appliances include Wolf, Viking, Sub-Zero, Fisher Paykel, Miele and Dacor. An outdoor Viking kitchen with fireplace and pizza oven is adjacent to the patio. Carefully landscaped paver walkways wrap around the south facing, river side of the home.
The master suite is inviting with its fireplace, seating area and fabulous views. The projection system has a drop down screen that disappears when retracted. A beautiful barrel ceiling hallway leads you to the master bath with radiant heat and a Finlandia sauna. The granite soaking tub, shower and sinks are as beautiful as they are unique. The exterior covered patio with wood burning fireplace is a cozy, private spot surrounded by carefully chosen landscaping next to the in-ground spa. The riverside walkway leads down to the lower level flagstone patio with an outdoor fire pit, perched above the river below.
The lower level is beyond compare. An antique bar from Belgium, massive rock fireplace, cozy seating area, room for pool, a game hall and large theater area highlight the entertainment area. Two comfortable guest suites with gas fireplaces are luxurious accommodations for guests. An exercise room and a climate controlled wine cellar complete the lower level. The flagstone patio with fire pit offers an exquisite sitting area to take in the ambiance and views of this special part of Central Oregon.
Across the courtyard lies the car barn with its custom carriage doors and distinctive silo, BaldHead cabinetry and ample space for extra vehicles and projects. The silo houses the spiral staircase to the beautifully appointed guest quarters with beautiful mountain views.
The 3 stall barn offers a heated wash area, tack room, feed room with laundry and a full bath. Turnout paddocks and fenced pasture are adjacent to the 50 foot custom round pen. Riding is superb in this magical setting right on the property or on the private trails that meander along the river, near miles of trails on public lands.
Elegance, privacy and sophistication combine to create this captivating Hacienda style estate less than 10 miles from Bend and the endless recreational opportunities and cultural offerings that the sought after Central Oregon lifestyle has to offer.
