La Center property boasts prime fishing & design potential

Located on the east fork of the Lewis River in La Center, Washington, this home is an oasis for any outdoors enthusiast. Perched atop its 5-acre lot, the house is clear of flood danger but just steps from Mason Creek Hole, where springwaters create an ideal home for steelhead and salmon. Scenic riverbanks offer prime fishing spots, and the boat launch gives access to the creek and river, leading all the way to the Columbia. Surrounded by territorial views and peeks at Mt. Hood, the property feels rural and secluded, despite being just 15 minutes from shopping and 30 minutes from Portland International Airport.

Inside the house’s stately arched brick entry, the sweeping two-story foyer features gleaming black marble floors and a curved staircase. The formal sitting room and dining room continue an air of classic luxury. Meanwhile, the bright open-concept kitchen, dining area and living room are prepared for a buyer’s design touch. A bedroom and exercise room — as well as a massive deck for grilling, outdoor entertaining and taking in the scenery — round out the main floor.

Upstairs, double doors open into a large master suite with a wood-burning stove, executive study and bathroom with tile and marble finishes. Large windows boast the home’s most dramatic view. Two more bedrooms and a den give families individual space as well as plenty of room to spend time together.

Back outside, the landscaped yard includes a swingset and play area. The fenced-in pool gives swimmers a chance to soak up the sunshine, while the adjacent outbuilding houses a steamy sauna. The three-bay garage is outfitted with 14-foot doors to accommodate a boat or RV, and the shop inside has electricity and water access. Attached to the garage, the guest house is perfect for visitor lodging or as a second residence.
