Contemporary Prairie in NW Crossing

Location: Bend, Oregon

This energy efficient home was built for a growing family with lots of energy!  This young family needed a well-built home that could handle raising young children as easily as it could a houseful of guests. After living in a production builder home, they wanted to save money on their utility bills and have spaces that suited their lifestyle and activities in the NW Crossing neighborhood in Bend, Oregon. They wanted a custom-built home that fit their budget, was sustainable, durable, and healthy. Solaire Homebuilders was the perfect fit for their family-friendly design.

2,211 sq. feet
4 bedrooms
3 baths

This Earth Advantage Gold Certified home is situated for passive solar on the main living area while a 5-Kilowatt solar array on the roof powers the home. With energy efficient Andersen 100 Series windows, this four bedroom, three bathroom home has ample outdoor living space with a fully fenced backyard and multiple patios as well as a three car garage.

The kitchen anchors the great room with solid surface countertops and high-end appliances. It has a butler’s pantry with a prep sink and side by side a full–size fridge and separate full-size freezer – every parent’s dream! The walk-in pantry in the kitchen is perfect for COSTCO sized snacks and meal prep. A beautiful wood and metal staircase connects the open concept family/living and kitchen with the upstairs where an additional separate family room serves as a flex space for guests, playroom or tv room.

The upstairs laundry room is more convenient for washing and drying all those tiny clothes, socks, sheets, and towels. The spa-like primary bath is a parental oasis with a large tub, shower, and it’s own a sauna room! A recirculating hot water system means no more cold showers for this busy family of five! The private home office gives mom and dad a quiet place to work from home.

Double backyard patios near the kitchen feature raised garden beds to teach the kids about where their food comes from and to make herbs more accessible while cooking dinner. An over-sized mudroom with tons of built-ins is a perfect drop zone for kids coats, shoes, and gear. The attached three-car garage is perfect for outdoor adventurists and weekend warriors with plenty of room to store bikes, skis and additional Central Oregon gear.
