Palatial Persimmon home truly above par
Soft natural lighting and views of the stately surroundings welcome guest and homeowner alike into this roughly 3,000-square-foot home in Gresham's exclusive Persimmon neighborhood.
Located off Southeast Augusta Loop, the two-level home supplies four bedrooms and three baths spread over 0.28 acres surveying the 10th tee of the lush Persimmon Golf Course.
"Whether it's the open floorplan or the sky-high windows and sightlines, there's a lot to love about this home," notes Michael Patrick of the Legacy Realty Group, who is representing the property.
"Plenty of people dream of living this lifestyle, but the opportunity to achieve it doesn't come around often," he continues.
With the club house a mere five minutes' trot away, new residents are encouraged to join the members-only Persimmon Country Club, where they can dine out, splash in the pool or send out a volley on the club's private tennis courts.
And aspiring golfers won't need to look any further than the 18-hole course on a rolling green designed by famed architect Gene "Bunny" Mason.
"But what we've really enjoyed is the community itself," notes retiree Ron Maxey, who's lived in the house since it was built in 1994. "It's just like a golf course resort community."
A fresh, contemporary design gives the home instant curb appeal. Through the covered porch and glass-lined front door, 15-foot ceilings extend over formal living and dining rooms accented with a butler's pantry.
Clear-paneled doors lead to a spacious kitchen island and open flow family room — each overlooking the stunning forested buttes of southwest Gresham. Kitchen essentials include a five-burner gas cooktop, built-in refrigerator and microwave wall oven.
A full bath with shower on the ground floor is another additional perk, while a sizeable bonus room could serve as a home office or fourth sleeping space. An extended three-car garage is outfitted with overhead racks for additional storage.
A newly-refreshed raised backyard deck provides a cozy spot to enjoy the sun, while the TimberTech brand ensures a lasting finish without the hassles of monthly maintenance and upkeep.
"You've got great views from almost all the rooms," remarks Maxey, who is planning to downsize to Vancouver along with his wife, Julie. "We really enjoy spending time on the deck."
Upstairs, a luxurious master bath offers a massive walk-in shower, separate sinks and a jetted tub built by Jacuzzi, plus an enclosed closet room with plenty of storage. The master bedroom offers more amazing views of the golf course, while two other bedrooms provide additional space for guests or family members.
Other noteworthy features include central air conditioning, forced air heat, a security system and in-house intercom. Kelly Creek Elementary and Gresham High are the nearest schools. Local homeowners association fees are listed at $800 yearly.
Currently available exclusively through Michael Patrick of the Legacy Realty Group, the home's list price is $574,750.
