Wine Country Retreat

This eclectic round house is located on a hillside overlooking the beautiful Willamette Valley of Oregon. The 1,200 square-foot home is perched on top of over 20 acres of woods below, offering total isolation while still allowing for sweeping views of the rolling hills, farmlands, and vineyards. This home is perfect as a writing retreat (it has already led to the successful completion of one dissertation, with another in the works!). The house feels isolated, but is also conveniently located only 5 minutes from the small town of Amity, 10 minutes from the quaint downtown of McMinnville, 30 minutes from Salem, and a little over an hour from Portland. The area is saturated by vineyards and wineries, with the closest literally located within walking distance (our neighbors, the Keeler estate). The home is fully-furnished and offers a spiritual/peaceful feel, with numerous Eastern spiritual statues and paintings throughout the home. Behind the round house is a small gazebo, which provides the perfect space for yoga, meditation, or artistic endeavors. The house is entered through the top floor, which has an open floor plan and large windows overlooking the valley. This large room is where the full kitchen, living room, dining space, and wood stove are located. A writing desk and chair facing the view are also located here. Down the stairs you will find two small rooms (one master bedroom with a queen sized bed, the other with a full sized bed) and a bathroom with the washer/dryer unit located inside. The master bedroom has a separate entrance leading to a small sitting area and fire pit outside, and the top floor opens up to the larger deck overlooking the valley.

About Me
My partner and I are academics based on the Central Coast of California. We have traveled extensively, from South America, Europe, Australia, and Africa. We particularly enjoy visiting small towns with great food and wines scenes, which is why we purchased a home in the Willamette Valley in Oregon. We look forward to sharing the home with other academics, as it offers the ideal writing retreat in the woods.
