The space
WELCOME TO OUR HOME:
Our house was originally built in 1960 and was remodeled within an inch of its life in 2017-18. My aunt and uncle moved into the house when it was new and my aunt left it to me when she died a couple of years ago. She wasn’t living there at the time; in fact, we had begun the remodeling together as soon as she moved out of it to assisted living. We thought we should be prepared if we needed to sell it for her care but, as it turned out, that wasn’t necessary, so we finished the project, planning to live there ourselves. Our main house is currently in Portland but we escape to Corvallis whenever we have the chance; unlike our main house, this house has been built with all the modern conveniences we have always wanted in a home.

When you first enter, you will first notice the open floor plan, lovely stained hardwood floors, the wonderful Sierra Bordeaux granite countertops and the matching Sierra Bordeaux ceiling-high fireplace with a new gas fireplace insert. Each wall has original art, comfortable and classic furniture, and specialty lighting that includes the overhead programmable lighting cans, beautiful silver sconces and modern lamps. And you will see the kitchen is filled with beautiful glass-fronted cabinets filled with both everyday dishes and gold-rimmed china with service for six and more. And the cabinets continue into the dining to provide a matching pantry of sliding drawers and storage.

In the Dining Room you will see the bottle of Oregon wine and wineglasses we left for you on the charcoal glass dining table, seated with four leather chairs with two identical-sized chairs nearby if you wish to seat six.

The new patio door has a security light on the top switch so it would be good to leave that turned on. If you are coming inside from the patio to a dark house, just reach in and press the bottom light switch and you will have the light you need to safely enter. The patio door locks, so just push it firmly closed and lower the lock lever. You cannot unlock the patio doors from the outside.

The Living Room has as comfortable bright red loveseat that opens into a single bed, two upholstered chairs that recline, and a beautiful clear glass coffee table. There you will find our snack basket complete with drinks and snacks to smooth over any late night arrival or early morning hungries. There you will also find a copy of this manual and bus maps, along with a second binder with menus from our favorite restaurants in the neighborhood and beyond.

Next to the fireplace is the dimmable light switch for the fireplace accent lights and on the fireplace seat you will find the remote for the gas fireplace. Be sure to use the fireplace surround if small children are present because the fireplace can get very hot. You will find it just outside the kitchen door next to the sink. The Living Room also has a gas fireplace. free to use it if you like but there is also a central air conditioning and heating system. If you are interested, the manual for the fireplace is included in the House Binder.

Our gourmet Kitchen was designed to meet every cooking need. We installed new matching Kitchenaid appliances including a french door counter-depth refrigerator in Stainless Steel; a 24'' 6-Cycle/6-Option Dishwasher [Architect® Series II]; a 30-Inch 5-Burner Dual Fuel Convection Range with electric oven and baking drawer, and 5-burner gas cooktop. There is also a very handy Sharp 24 Inch Wide 1.2 Cu. Ft. Microwave Drawer with Push Button Opening, a mixer cabinet with Kitchenaid mixer and mixer lift, and an ultra-quiet AKDY Euro Stainless Steel 36” Range Hood that we always use so cooking smells (no matter how wonderful!) stay in the kitchen!

Feel free to use the pull-out spice rack, anything in the refrigerator or the pantry. You will find new pots & pans, mixing bowls, baking dishes and plenty of silverware and serving utensils. On the counter and in the knife drawer, you will find knives, spatulas and whisks. At the far right of the sink is the tray cabinet where you will find a sliding drawer for cookie sheets and pizza pans.

The lighted cabinets hold a fine set of Noritake China for your fancier meals and a new set of white Parhoma White Melamine Home Dinnerware Set, 12-Piece Service for 8, for everyday use.

An iron is located in the top cabinet above the refrigerator and the ironing board is in the garage.

The pull-out garbage and recycle cans are in the cabinets below the china cabinets and the garbage bags are in the left of the pantry. The garbage truck comes on Wednesday so if you think of it, put the garbage and recycling cans out on Tuesday night. The yard waste container may also be full because the lawn mower business uses it so you can put that out too.

The manuals for all the appliances are on the kitchen counter.

FOR SAFETY: please note that there is a Fire Extinguisher and First Aid kit under the sink.


The Master Bathroom was designed with as much comfort and style as we could fit into it! The floors are heated and there is a wonderful warm towel rack. The soaking tub is a 60-inch freestanding soaking bathtub in white with polished chrome drain and overflow Trim. And the drain is in the middle of the tub – no one must sit on the drain! The bathtub is filled from a champagne bronze floor-mounted tub filler and it comes with Bubble Bath (ladies!). You will love it.

Tip: about an hour before your scheduled bubble bath, be sure to place one or two of your towels on the towel warmer mounted under the window. If it is not on, just turn on the small switch at the bottom right of the warmer.

Or if a shower is your preference, help yourselves to our shampoo and shower gels.

Tip: before you begin your shower, swing your heated towel over the top edge of the shower where it can wait until you are ready for it. No need to get out of the shower to reach a towel and it will stay warm, we guarantee it!

You will notice the painted tiles in the niches in the shower and the near the tub. The tiles were hand -painted with images of Oriental Poppies by Karina Soboleva of Soboleva Art in Krasnodar, Russia. They are a perfect accompaniment to Claude Monet’s “Poppies,” an art-quality canvas lithographic print hanging above the tub.

The granite-topped Vanity features two undercounter sinks, plenty of room for two friendly adults or children. Cleaning products are behind the right door of the vanity, and more soaps and shampoos behind the left. The drawers in the middle are empty and for your use – just don’t forget to empty them before you leave!

The teak stool can be used in or out of the shower. Do not hesitate to use it if you need a resting place while showering. It is fully waterproof.

FOR SAFETY: please notice that there is a First Aid kit in the center drawer of the bathroom vanity.

Please note there is a 1/2 bath under construction in the garage, located next to the washer & dryer. The toilet is new and working, and the room is heated. There is currently no sink until the project is finished.

The Study is designed to be a multi-functional space that can be used as an office, as an extension of the living room for entertaining, a tv room, and as a very comfortable bedroom. The Sans Soucie glass doors close as does the sliding door that leads to the bathroom. The leather couch opens into a full-sized bed with a very comfortable foam mattress that has been enhanced with a Novaform 3 EVENcor GelPlus Gel Memory Foam Mattress topper . The cotton sheets, feather comforter and duvet cover and the pillows for the bed are housed in the silver grey buffet centered under the television. All of the pillows have zippered hotel covers.

What teenager doesn’t like a bedroom all to his- or herself with a tv remote and Wi-Fi?
Speaking of Wi-Fi, we have very strong Wi-Fi at our house. There are two networks, one called “Corvallis – 2.4” and another called “Corvallis – 5. The latter is the much faster network but older devices may not pick it up. However, the “2.4” network is also fast enough for most Wi-Fi needs. The Download Speed: 150Mbps and Upload Speed: 5Mbps.

There is a Brother black & white laser printer on the business desk and filing cabinet. There is also a new Dell monitor with wireless keyboard and mouse that you are welcome to use. We use Lenovo laptops so there is a Lenovo base available as well. Printer paper is stocked in the drawers and you are welcome to use whatever you find in the desk.

The Wi-Fi should be on all the time. Very occasionally, Xfinity will do an update that requires resetting the modem, the odd-shaped piece of hardware sitting to the right of the monitor. If it isn’t working well, just disconnect the power from the modem for 10 sec, then replug it and wait for it to load again. Questions? Contact me…

We have Xfinity cable and the Xfinity remote will connect you with many channels of both programs and music. Select the Xfinity button on the remote and it will let you browse amongst the categories of recorded or scheduled shows. Maybe most importantly, if you browse over to the “Apps” sign, you can click on it and access other things like Netflix and Sports games, -- and your horoscope for those so inclined!

As in the other bedrooms, the study has a lighted ceiling fan for air distribution and the new windows open for more fresh Oregon air if you so desire. The fan remote is on the end table with the lamp.

Each bedroom has dimmable overhead lights and a silver sconce (or two as in the
Study). Our house has central heat and air conditioning.

The Master Bedroom has a new king-sized bed with feather comforter and duvet cover, two pillows and two pillow shams. There is a heated mattress control by the left end table. There is an end table on each side with a lamp.

A handy feature are the plug-ins behind each night stand – they are combo plugs with room for two electrical plug-ins and two USB plug-ins so you can read on your Kindle before you go to bed and charge it while you sleep!

The master bedroom has a large divided closet with drawers below. Feel free to use them. There are also empty drawers in the chest of drawers.

You will probably see some of our sweaters or jackets or umbrellas hanging there. If the weather turns rainy or cold during your stay, feel free to borrow them. Just toss them in the laundry when you leave.

This room also has a lighted ceiling fan for those who like air circulation while they sleep although the central air conditioning and heating system will keep you comfortable without it. And the new windows open if you have a desire for some of our Oregon fresh air.

Each bedroom has dimmable overhead lights


The Second Bedroom has a Murphy bed which allows the room to be used as a bedroom or as a work space. The Murphy bed is a beautiful piece of furniture which, when opened, provides a queen-size bed on a 10” foam mattress that is enhanced with a Novaform 3 EVENcor GelPlus Gel Memory Foam Mattress topper . It is very comfortable and comes with a feather comforter and duvet cover, two pillows per person and, of course, fresh sheets. If you let us know in advance, the bed will be made up and waiting for you when you arrive. Unless you need the room for other activities, such as a second office, the bed can be left open during your visit.

The second bedroom has a closet and a brand-new large chest of drawers. We also supply a luggage rack for suitcases.

Overhead, there is a lighted ceiling fan for those who like to feel the air moving while they sleep. The house also has a central air conditioning and heating system, so you need not depend on the fan for cooling if the weather is hot.

Two set of towels are set out for each guest. Be sure to put some of them on the heated towel rack in the bathroom before you take a shower or soak in the tub! And dump them in the laundry hamper in the Master Bedroom closet before you leave.

The windows are brand new and are easily opened for those who enjoy our beautiful Oregon fresh air.

Each bedroom has dimmable overhead lights.

OUTSIDE there is a lovely patio and a patio table with umbrella and chairs. In bad weather, we store the chairs & umbrella in the garage. In the garage you will also find a portable grill along with extra gas canisters and a chase lounge.

The yard is maintained by Luis who comes weekly, hopefully not before 9 but….

Feel free to enjoy the roses and the rhodedendrons and, in season, tomatoes from our tomato plants!

ENTRY: Use either garage keypad: we will give you the code after you book.

CHECKOUT: If we are unable to be here to say good-bye, please make sure:
a. Please place all dirty towels and bathrobes on the floor in the room you used or in the laundry hamper in the Master Bedroom closet. Don’t worry about the sheets and comforters.
b. Please put any dirty dishes in the dishwasher, add soap, and turn it on before you leave.
c. Please make sure all the doors are locked, including the patio door, before you leave through the garage.
d. Thank you for coming and safe travels home!!

Guest access
You will be able to access the entire house and garage with the exception of some cabinets in the garage.. One car can be parked in the garage with the doors closed. There is additional parking on the driveway and free parking on the street in front of the house.

Other things to note
The washer & dryer, complete with detergent, dryer sheets and baskets, are located next to the half-bath just outside the kitchen door in the garage.

Our neighboring houses rent to OSU students. We have met them and they are very nice, and they urge me to let them know if they make too much noise. I have never had to warn them but if you do, feel free to knock on their door or let me know and I will fix it.

Very early on Wednesday mornings the garbage trucks come. They will be noisy but if you set out the garbage, recycling and yard waste cans the night before, they will take it all away!

Luis and his crew will come once during the week to tend the lawns. I have asked them to not come any earlier than they have to but they might show up with their mowers shortly after 8, especially if it is hot that day. If that is a problem, be sure to let me know.
