outdoor living

This single-story mountain modern farmhouse is located in Bend, Oregon in the sought after golf community of Tetherow. Designed and built by Norman Building and Design the residence sits on a one-acre golf course parcel bordering the foothills of the Deschutes National Forest with views of the Cascade Mountains.

Within the 3,579 square feet of living space is found three bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, a media room, and office. Entering the residence your eye is immediately drawn through the open-plan living space to panoramic views. Preparing for retirement this California couple approached Norman Building and Design to share their vision for a home that would blend the mountain architecture known to the area with rustic farmhouse aesthetic touches.

Aided by Wendi Zampino, Design with Detail, the two teams worked to curate the many custom elements showcased throughout the home including four fireplaces, reclaimed wood accents, forged-iron metal treatments, extensive millwork, knotty alder paneled interior doors, specialty cabinetry, and brickwork. Norman Building and Design’s Cabinet division delivered on the homeowner’s vision of a ‘found’ look with furniture-like cabinetry and the use of unique wood finishes throughout the residence.

Once inside your eye is quickly drawn through the home to the floor-to-ceiling glass wall that perfectly captures the forested mountain views in the distance.

What We Love: This beautiful mountain modern farmhouse home is the perfect playground for those who enjoy outdoor activities year-round.

The home’s 1,700 square foot four-car garage provides adequate space for large toys, it also has a specialty wall of cabinetry to help organize the smaller items needed to enjoy the outdoors. The washbasin is a favorite regularly used for clean fishing waders, hiking boots, and other recreational gear.
