Iron Mountain Garden- West
This historic home was originally built as the gatekeeper cottage to the 1906 Squire family home, now the Cooley House. Portland architect Bill Fletcher designed the 1987 remodel and the garden has since grown to radiate the beauty of the French countryside. The owner's vision of "planting to the property" offers a design full of balance, color, and texture while creating the feeling of microclimate "rooms", one leading to another. Fabulous outdoor sculpture is the cherry on top!
This home was built in 1926 for Donald Bates, president of the Interstate Terminals. A beautiful renovation was done by the current owner in 2010 with the vision of landscape designer, Michael Schultz. Come experience a front yard filled with hydrangea, roses, clematis, and mature rhododendrons in a lovely classic formal design. The journey continues to a breathtaking back garden with fireplace, fountain, guest cottage, vegetable garden, fruit trees, lilacs, peonies, and ...chickens! Not to mention the epic view of Mt. Hood, a destination to enjoy indeed!
