The Lilac House

OFFERED AT: $2,500,000

The Lilac House is an unbuilt Greene & Greene home that now blooms in historic Jacksonville, Oregon, a master piece design that was resurrected from the archives of MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology) and the Smithsonian. This unique design was based off Charles and Henry Greene’s infamous Blacker and Gamble houses of Pasadena, giving the home an exquisite flair of early 1900’s design with 21st century construction making this home truly a one of a kind piece of art. A very short walking distance to downtown Jacksonville, this magnificent home sits on 5.01 acres with majestic views of the Rogue Valley, Jacksonville area, plush vineyards, and mountains that will leave you breathless. Built by master craftsman Roger Whipple, a Pasadena transplant contractor, he made sure the Greene’s would be proud of his modern-day construction and his vision of their design and architecture, he spent years completing this master piece with his artistic flair and passion that Greene and Greene are well now for. The pool side boosts of an arbor, gourmet BBQ area, lounging area, hot tub and an oversized swimming pool for plenty of family fun and gatherings. With an arborist flair, the outside consists of hundreds of different types of trees, bushes, and flowers that make this home enjoyable all year.

Greene and Greene were well known for their Pin & Dowel and their Mortise & Tenon construction, the lilac house delivers this craftsman era technique with the highest of all quality. All the doors, windows, trim, and cabinetry; were milled onsite from vertical grain Douglas fir. Every detail in the home has been thoroughly planned from the Gourmet Kitchen, 12’ fireplace, the centerpiece courtyard, studio apartment, Japanese tile roof, lilac stained glass in entry, over 1,000-foot covered porch, 6’ front door, finished 3-car garage, and much more. Greene & Greene is considered among the greats in the architectural pantheon and their homes are being preserved as Museums today, as thousands of people from all over the world see their homes and view Charles and Henry Greene as the forefathers of the American Craftsman style-built homes we know today.
