Oregon wineries are the stars of the Street of Dreams luxury home tour in 2022
New wineries in a range of styles, from modern farmhouse to forest lodge, with never-before-seen products will be unveiled on Saturday during the NW Natural Street of Dreams luxury tour. For the first time, the 47-year-old summer event, which runs from July 23 to August 23. 14, will be held in Yamhill County.
Those interested in building, buying or renovating a home who attend the show will be able to learn about advanced building techniques and the latest trends in interior design. The Scandinavian-style Fika home from Elite Development Northwest has popular neutral colors, organic materials, and acoustically-enhancing oak slat wall panels.
The region’s top builders, interior designers, and landscape designers are showcasing new fixtures and building materials like the Marvin Awaken Skylight with four-sided ventilation that lets you adjust light and airflow.

California Closets has a new Murphy bed that folds down into a workspace with task lighting, a device charging station, and storage space.
James Hardie is launching its new architectural collection of exterior weather and fire resistant panels and Portland-based Miller Paint’s new Northwest color collection features 132 regionally inspired colors, such as Skier’s View Grey-White and Moss Driftwood.
With a $20 ticket (streetofdreamspdx.com), participants will be able to visit six residential properties, with expansive views of vineyard, valley, stream, farmland and forest, valued up to 4.5 millions of dollars.
Custom homes exceed Oregon building codes and high-efficiency heating and cooling systems and other features reduce energy and water needs and save on utility bills.
Even the largest 6,714-square-foot residence uses less energy than a modest-sized home built 20 to 30 years ago, say trip organizers with the Home Builders Association of Metro Portland.
Sustainable, energy-efficient approaches, like tankless water heaters with battery backup, can be adapted to any home.
And, as always, the new homes selected to be part of the Street of Dreams tour have many mind-blowing factors.
With good reason, estates in the Willamette Valley wine region are equipped with ways to properly display and store bottles of pinot noir and other varietals.
Visitors will see a custom wall rack that can hold a few hundred bottles as well as the Monogram Sommelier which stores red and white wines in two temperature zones and the new Plum Wine Vending Machine, which pours wine by the glass and promises to keep the opened bottle tasting fresh for 90 days.
The homes have places for owners and their guests to relax and enjoy libations, from the hidden speakeasy-like living room in the Hewn House of Del Boca Vista to the outdoor living areas overlooking tidy rows of vines.
A home theater with an oversized screen, surround sound system, and soundproof walls above Secor Homes Creekside Craftsman’s three-car garage lets everyone settle in for a cinematic adventure.
Mike Riddle Construction shows that practical can still be pretty: West Wind Farmhouse’s locker room includes a built-in dog shower and a locker for each member of the family.
Retractable glass doors blur the boundaries between rooms and complex-type backyards equipped with a pizza oven, kegerator or built-in fireplace.
Builder Luke Belanger has four separate patios for his Vineyard View Lodge: off the great room, the kitchen and primarily the garden level suite, and there is a covered patio off the basement at the day light.
MODPools installed a pool repurposed from a shipping container on the back deck of Elite Development Northwest’s Laurelwood home. Check out the underwater window that frames the property‘s acres of woods.
The main venue for the show is Rose Pointe Estates outside of Newberg. Three homes in the hilltop residential community developed by Del Boca Vista are open daily. Another new home, open daily, is nearby, and there are two custom homes in McMinnville that are open Friday through Sunday. The self-guided and self-paced tour can be done on different days.
