169 NE Alpenview LN is a custom built 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath home located in the Larkspur district of Bend, Oregon. In the shadow of iconic Pilot Butte, this home has mountain views from both its upper and lower back deck as well as from the kitchen sink, master bedroom and bonus bedroom over the 2 car garage. It is perched atop a lava wall overlooking the neighborhood, with additional privacy provided by beautiful mature weeping birch trees. Its spacious back yard – a rarity for an in-town home – is enclosed by a custom 6+ foot cedar fence. The yard is watered by a 4 zone in-ground smart, IoT water conserving sprinkler system. Squirrels cavort and hummingbirds nest in the wooded back yard, while deer and quail frequent the front.

Inside, the 1862 square foot home boasts a freshly renovated, open concept downstairs living area, entered into through new double front doors finished in Hollandlac from Fine Paints of Europe. Fully custom, this space is green and LEED certified, with Du Chateau non-toxic, hard wax, hardwood flooring. The kitchen cabinetry is all custom from Barker Cabinets (Portland, OR), stained with zero VOC Monocoat. The large island, with bar sink and KitchenAid gas cooktop with downdraft, is cut from an amazing custom natural stone slab from Formations and Imagine Stoneworks. The cabinet counters, as well as the downstairs bathroom counter, are single slab, custom cut white Dekton. All cabinet doors and drawers are soft-close, with premium hardware. Appliances include a brand new electric double wall oven by Jenn-Air, dishwasher by Bosch, and bottom-freezer refrigerator by LG.

The kitchen is open to a large, bright gathering space, the centerpiece of which is a modern, flush gas fireplace with custom burnt wood/sealed surround, around which runs hidden in-wall A/V for wall mounting a television. Along with ample cabinet space – including on all sides of the island – there is additional storage in a walk-in closet beneath the stairs. The dining area opens via sliding glass door to the downstairs deck, with beautiful westward views of the mountains.

Upstairs non-toxic, oil finish hardwoods run throughout. The master bedroom boasts vaulted ceilings, an en-suite full bath and its own deck, accessible via sliding glass doors, with mountain views. Two more bright bedrooms with ample closet space face the front of the house, while over the garage is another large, vaulted ceiling room with mountain views. There is a dedicated laundry room upstairs as well as another shared full bath with tub.

Back downstairs, the two car garage has an abundance of shelving and storage space. Its garage door is new, insulated against heat and cold, and controlled by a smart IoT opener. There is an additional refrigerator in the garage as well. Within the house the climate is maintained by a Energy Star heat pump and Aprilaire whole house filtration system installed by Home Heating & Cooling, controlled by a smart, IoT Honeywell thermostat with outdoor and upstairs additional zone sensors.

Back outside, ample parking for multiple vehicles exists. A custom built craftsman shed provides still more storage for summer lawncare and winter snow equipment and more. Multiple cedar raised beds encourage gardening and attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds (and deer, if you’re not careful!).

In the back, nestled against the house beneath the bonus room is a completely separate office/bonus area, not calculated in the overall square footage. This space has electric and internet, and is the perfect work-from-home office solution.

This house is right across the street from Larkspur Trail (walk to the new Larkspur Community Center, Pilot Butte, and the park!), and a mere two miles from the city center.

We love this unique oasis in the midst of beautiful Bend, Oregon, and we’re certain that you will too.
