We designed our dream home with a long-range plan in mind to also open the site as a wedding venue. With that goal in mind, we constructed nearly 10,000 square feet of decking around our home. The whole estate is surrounded by fir trees, some of which come up directly through the decking. Through out the deck, there are a variety of water features, including sunken pools and creeks that wind throughout and around the decking. Magnificent vista views of the beautiful Willamette Valley set off the unique architecture of our home. With many levels of decking (all wheel chair accessible) couples have the opportunity for many seating and table arrangements. There is also 2,500 square feet of paved courtyard, five different BB-Q's and electrical work all around the decking, including the raised stage area that begs for a live band.
We have lived in Brownsville for the past 24 years, and we have owned the 10'acres of property near the summit of Washburn Heights for 30 years. In 2002, we began construction of our dream home. Today we proudly offer it to you as a place to make your special day unforgettable. We have proudly named our venue "Sanctuary at Washburn Heights" as we feel the serenity and beauty of the whole experience here will give you the warmth you deserve on your sacred day. It truly is a Sanctuary at Washburn Heights.
