About the property

Spacious 4 Bedroom, 2 Bath Elegantly Furnished Creekside 1895 Farm House

This two story home has been updated with modern conveniences but affords the tranquil atmosphere of simpler times. When you enter the picket-fenced gardens through the gate house, you will immediately feel at home. A seasonal succession of vegetation surround the house, and wildlife wander in to taste the bounty. Downstairs you will find a fully equipped kitchen (microwave, refrigerator, electric stove, dishwasher, small appliances, etc. ), full sized bathroom with tub/shower combination, dining room, library, living room, bedroom with queen sized bed, entry, and laundry room. The three large bedrooms upstairs each have a sitting area and closets. Each bedroom is uniquely decorated and named after a member of the Pearce family who lived in the home from 1895 to 1996. The upstairs bathroom has two sinks and a beautifully tiled large shower. American made braided rugs and homemade window dressings were placed in every room to add to the historic atmosphere. A ductless heating/cooling system allow comfort control in each room. In the library, you will find a large assortment of games (cribbage, Mexican train dominoes, rummy, etc.) and jigsaw puzzles, books, cd/phonograph/radio (with old time radio cds), and TV. A gas BBQ is available on the front porch. The porch is tiled and furnished with chairs to comfortably sit and enjoy the breeze off Deer Creek on a hot summer day. Although there are many great things to do in Douglas County, this place is a great place to just hang out and relax.

Gorgeous house on beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

My family really enjoyed our stay! The house offered perfect amenities for a big family dinner. The farm is a beautiful setting with old fashioned charm. 10am checkout is a little early for most families I think

Beautifully restored Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely lovely place to spend Christmas! The owner had the home so well decorated for Christmas, and everything we could possibly want was present. We even grilled fresh salmon outside on Dec. 29th since there is a nice grill on the covered porch overlooking a creek. The owner was extremely helpful with everything.

The Pierce Historical home is perfect for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas of 2015 and 2017 at The Pierce Historical home. This house has a Hallmark type feel to it at Christmas. It's cozy, yet beautifully appointed. The owner decorates for us. Seeing deer and cows grazing around was a beautiful sight. We can't wait to stay in the summertime to enjoy the grill, outdoor table, and river running by the house. The owners spared no expense on the renovations to this home.

I look forward to going back!

It was wonderful.

  • 5 of 5

The home was centrally located and very comfortable. We loved reading about the history of the home and seeing the pictures. We enjoyed coffee in the garden each morning. We also visited a couple of vineyards, which were quite good. At dinner one night we picked up a brochure of the local waterfalls. The one we visited had jumping salmon, which we had not experienced before.

About Ellen Williams

My husband Larry and I have been in the cattle business since 1972. We are active members of the Douglas County Farm Bureau and enjoy our relationships with our "fellow farm friends". We are members of the Chamber of Commerce and support projects and community activities within Douglas County. I am a former school teacher and have always enjoyed being creative in the classroom and life. This historic house has been a new outlet for creativity.

Ellen Williams purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Ellen Williams chose Roseburg

We purchased this farm house and 80 acres in January 2013, because it was continuous with the 730 acres of ranch property that we already owned. We did not want a housing development next door to our ranching operation. We sold a ranch in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2004 and moved our cattle operation to Roseburg. Our home is a half mile south of the Pearce home. The Pearce home was terribly neglected, and the restoration project has taken two years. It has been a creative endeavor and a labor of love.

What makes this farmhouse unique

This home is uniquely situated just outside the Roseburg city limits on the north side of grazing lands and forested areas. A two mile drive west from the farm house on Douglas Avenue brings you to the historic downtown of Roseburg. Brix 527, Salud, and Dino's Ristorante are all great places to eat downtown. Day trips east to the beautiful waterfalls of the Umpqua River or west to the coast are easily made with the Pearce House as your home base. Winery tours or fishing expeditions are things that even/especially the locals enjoy. Graffiti weekend (old car event) and the County Fair attract many visitors to Roseburg. Umpqua Community College and Umpqua Actors Community Theatre provide excellent theatre experience throughout the year.

This home is centrally located for day trips west to the Oregon coast or east to the many waterfalls and fishing sites on the Umpqua River. Hikers, cyclers, white-water rafters, and kayakers are drawn to these scenic areas of Douglas County. Diamond Lake and Crater Lake are popular destinations for day trips. There are many wineries in the Umpqua Valley. Wildlife Safari is a short trip south of Roseburg in Winston. We find it exciting to live in an area where so many outdoor activities can be reached without being mired in heavy traffic to get there.
