About our home

2-story newer home on 20-acres. Wrap around porch. Much of acreage is pasture, with a juniper grove and a few acres of scrub/rock outcrop. Two ponds on property. Large greenhouse - rental home (occupied) and small caretaker cottage (occupied) also on property. Lots of equipment for children, hammock to enjoy the mountain views. Very peaceful and serene, yet only 8-miles from Bend, 6-miles from Redmond, OR and about 15-miles from Sisters, OR. There is so much to do in Central Oregon. With 300+ days of sunshine a year and several feet of powder in the mountains, it is a recreationist delight. Along with hiking, bicycling, skiing (cross-country and downhill), sledding, tubing, swimming, boating, there is always some kind of festival going on in Bend. Bend is a town of about 75,000 with a college/university. Music festivals, movies, pubs, lots of family oriented activities - there is always something to do.

The neighborhood around us is primarily farmland. Farms range from small (<1 acre) to 40 acres. The closest little community is Tumalo, which has a gas station/grocery and post office and a few restaurants (3-miles away). There are nice country roads for bicycling. The nearest larger town (Redmond has about 20,000 population) is 6-miles away.

We have fabulous views of the mountains and the property is great for enjoying nature's bounty. Wildlife abounds on the property; from the deer mouse to the black-tailed deer.

I (Shari) and 46-years young. I work as a Natural Resource Specialist for the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality. My husband (Andy) is 51-years young, works for the local COSTCO as a photography technician. He has degrees in architectural autocad and photography and is the definitive DIY. We have two girls, currently ages 12 & 6. Both attend a local, private school and are excellent students. We all play music (piano, guitar, violin/fiddle) and enjoy playing music together. We love to travel and see the home exchange as an opportunity to embrace cultural immersion. We are easy-going, "earthy" people. English is our primary language - and we dabble in Spanish and even less French. We have dogs (2), cats (7), goats (3) and chickens (20).
