  • Beautiful 6,000 sq. ft. architect-designed brick home

This property is in the mid-Eola Hills on the northern portion of Bethel Heights Road above Spring Valley Road. The location is about 7 miles northwest of Salem along the main wine touring route on the east side of the Eola-Amity Hills AVA. The site is about 38 miles from downtown Portland up 99 or across the Willamette on the Wheatland Ferry to I-5 and in on I-5.

Neighbors include BjornsonVineyard/Winery, Feltz Vineyard just around the corner and von Oehlsen Vineyard adjacent, Stangeland Vineyard is within a half mile across Hopewell Rd., Jackson Family Wines’ Zena Crown, Witness Tree, Cristom, St. Innocent and Zenith Vineyards, Bethel Heights Vineyards and Bryn Mawr Vineyards all on the same hill as the subject and all within easy touring distance. The views from this site are some of the finest in the mid-Valley.


The site is completely in the “zone” for growing wine grapes in the Willamette Valley: southeast sloping from 370-235’ elevation with an additional 55’ drop from the lowest edge of the property the lower “frost pooling” bottom ground across Spring Valley Rd. at Bethel Heights. The entire parcel is plantable (but for land taken up by the improvements) consisting of Jory, Nekia soils , which are some of the most sought after volcanic soils upon which to grow grapes in the Willamette Valley. Just under 13 acres are cleared and ready to plant.


The custom-built, New York-based architect-designed 6,000 brick home was built by a masonry contractor for his personal home. It is classic in design, elegance, state-of-the-art amenities and practicality.

The upper floors have 5 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, imposing entry, office, and media room with fireplace. Throughout the upper sections, there is extensive, elaborate woodworking and Pagoda plank hardwood floors.There is a covered concrete deck off the media room and an additional deck off the kitchen.

There is a high-ceiling central living room, a custom chef’s kitchen with Carrera marble counter tops and built-in cupboards. The high-end appliances include a La Cornue range and Sub Zero refrigeration with a 78 bottle dual climate wine refrigerator.

The not-yet-finished lower level will consist of a second media room, family room with fireplace, another full bath, wine cellar and mechanical room. The lower level was also constructed with the thought that a small winery/tasting room could be housed in the space, looking out over a wine tasting patio and the resultant vineyards.

There is also a 3-car garage with a 1,000 sq. ft. 2nd floor intended to be a guest suite All levels and rooms have beautiful views of the Cascades over the Valley north of Salem.


The property is zoned Farm/Forest and cannot be further split. There is the possibility of a small winery, with a Polk County Conditional Use Permit. No guarantees.


The property is at 3290 Bethel Heights NW, Salem, OR 97304. Drive is chain-locked and there are to be no showings without prior notice.
