Richland, OR: Robert and Linda

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The two found the property online. "Linda and I were frequent visitors of Hell's Canyon, so we were familiar with the area," Robert says. "My kids had moved away, and we were ready for something different. We wanted a place where we could grow our own food."As a kid in California, Robert's family had an avocado orchard. "After high school, our family bought a vineyard together, which was quite successful until Gallo moved in and drastically changed the price index," he says. "So I'm pretty familiar with farm life."On their wish list: "Four seasons, gates to the property and a nearby national forest," Linda says. "The last thing on the list was, I swear, 'a few fruit trees.'"The orchard includes 17 varieties of peaches in addition to prunes, pears, apples, plums, apricots, walnuts, hazelnuts, grapes and more. There's also a steady supply of fresh eggs from laying hens.

Porch as deck. Maybe whole porch is lower and just steps up to the door?
