When does a dream become real? This trophy estate in Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine region is a masterpiece in the making. The owners commissioned Las Vegas-based Richard Luke Architects to design the ultimate showcase for their collection of 140 limited-edition automobiles, including a 1937 Rolls-Royce Phantom. Encompassing 31 private acres, the property offers 22 acres of prime, Willamette Valley AVA pinot noir terroir, and 2,700 feet of frontage along the Willamette River. A helipad, boat dock, sandy beach, formal gardens, and a pool terrace are envisioned. The main house will offer more than 50,000 square feet of contemporary living and entertaining space. The centerpiece is the climate-controlled auto museum: a car collector’s dream with modular, portable vehicle lifts; a workshop; and three 10-foot, 2-inch clearance doors onto paved driveways flanking the estate. It’s suitable for a multi-use event space, with vast gallery walls to display large artworks, and ideal for grand-scale entertaining with a catering kitchen, media lounge, two bars, offices, guest suites, and a spectacular three-story, floor-to-ceiling wine vault (for up to 10,000 bottles) and a tasting room. Its fluid, contemporary lines and walls of glass emphasize the owners’ feng shui design philosophy, bringing in the light, and the 270-degree river and valley views. The main level of the home, accessed via elevator, is dedicated to a grand ballroom that mirrors the footprint and symmetry of the auto showroom below. It’s also an utterly luxurious home, with an upper-floor principal suite, 10 additional en suite bedrooms, formal and casual living areas, and amenities worthy of a five-star resort.
The property is set for completion within 18 months from the point of purchase. The acreage may be purchased with entitlements and design. See the video below for a full 3D visualization of the architecture and surrounding landscape.
