HGTV 'Log Cabin Living' Showcases Local Real Estate Broker Specializing in Mountain Vacation Homes and Log Cabin Retreats


Cascade Sotheby's International Realty agent Noah Kirshbaum expertly guides clients through finding their rustic dream homes, offers new log cabin listing on 20 acres near Portland

PORTLAND, Ore. (PRWEB) August 01, 2018

Navigating Oregon's vacation and second home climate can be daunting for buyers looking for the solitude and romance of a mountain or high desert retreat. But Noah Kirshbaum is making a name for himself doing just that.

Kirshbaum recorded $10 million in closed sales as a broker at Cascade Sotheby's International Realty in 2017 and is earning a reputation for his knowledge about mountain living and all the nuances inherent in purchasing a remote log cabin sanctuary. That expertise recently landed him a debut on HGTV's popular Log Cabin Living show.

As a result of both Kirshbaum's appearance on Log Cabin Living show and his knowledge of these special heritage properties, he recently scored a new listing on 20 acres above the Clackamas River just east of Portland.

Kirshbaum's newest listing is a luxury log cabin on 20 acres just above the pristine Clackamas River and just 45 minutes from PDX International Airport. The property itself has a private road to the river with beaches for fishing and kayaking, and even an accessible island in the river. There are acres of wilderness hiking paths throughout the property. And an organic farm with barn and shed awaits the next owner looking for the ultimate rural living experience.

The original owner custom built this incredible home hand-choosing each log used to create a one-of-a-kind retreat that features:

  •     5,000+ square feet, 5 bed, 4 bath on 3 separate living levels
  •     ADU over the garage
  •     Hardwood floors, two huge stone fireplaces, decks and unique amenities
  •     Sun room, formal dining, den, open kitchen, laundry/mud room, bonus/game room

"This is an incredible opportunity to enjoy the ultimate log cabin lifestyle in one of the last truly private forested settings within the Portland Metro area," says Kirshbaum. "I keep thinking the layout and sheer size of the home with three different living levels would be ideal, too, for a bed and breakfast—just 45 minutes from Portland or 45 minutes from Mt. Hood recreational area. And the recreational opportunities right there on the property are a huge draw for the right family or buyer."

The New York Times recently featured this stunning log cabin home with a gorgeous walk-through, and Kirshbaum launched a video series called The Tour to showcase his growing portfolio of extraordinary listings.

Whether looking for a specific kind of log cabin, the ideal secluded location next to whitewater, or even a high desert family home, it's wise to work with a broker savvy about all the nuances inherent in rustic and alpine living. Kirshbaum is adept at the art of living and the importance of a home's sense of place:

What are the implications of buying or building on government-owned forest service land? From what kinds of wood, logs and materials is the cabin built? Will it stand up to harsh mountain weather? How will the rocky terrain impact outdoor living and gardening?

HGTV 'Log Cabin Living' producers caught wind of Kirshbaum and his clients looking for extraordinary log cabin properties on Mt. Hood and scheduled an episode with the longtime real estate broker. The recent episode of Log Cabin Living follows Kirshbaum and one family as they ditch the hustle and bustle and go on a journey to find the quintessential escape. Together they navigate this unusual real estate market—from access to everyday necessities, entertainment and recreational activities, to a whole new set of maintenance requirements.

In this episode, Kirshbaum expertly helps his clients find their perfect secluded vacation home on Oregon's own Mt. Hood—complete with rushing whitewater outside the backdoor and an array of nearby recreational access for all. After recently moving to the United States, a nature-loving British family works with the experienced broker to buy a log cabin as a vacation retreat in the Mount Hood Village area of Oregon.

Kirshbaum is developing a keen reputation as a specialist in cabin and retreat living, has helped clients buy their dream homes in vacation spots like Mt. Hood, Sandy, Government Camp, Central Oregon and Bend, and Sun Valley, Idaho.

Kirshbaum enjoys a successful and productive reputation in the Oregon real estate community building on these features:

  •     Sought by sellers of log cabin listings in the Portland Metro area including a new listing on 20 acres above the Clackamas River
  •     Experience remodeling and selling homes in California, Idaho, and Oregon
  •     Closed $10 million in sales in 2017
  •     Experience with vacation homes—and remote living—in Bend, Hood River, Mount Hood, Sun Valley and Portland
  •     Designing and building a home in Happy Valley through his own family business
