2490 Summit Drive in Lake Oswego Just Closed

2490 sumit drBrian Olsen at Cooper Jacobs Real Estate in Lake Oswego sold a gorgeous one of the Lake Oswego waterfront homes located at 2490 Summit Drive.  It closed last week in escrow after being listed by another company for 212 (!!!) days.   The other company originally listed the waterfront home all the way back in August of 2014 for almost $2.6M and then finally reduced it down to $2.2M back in Feb of this year.  Brian was able to negotiate against the listing agent to get the final sales price down further all the way to $2,020,000.

(As a side note, If I had personally listed this gorgeous one of a kind Lake Oswego waterfront property, I would not have let it go for under $2,100,000)lake oswego waterfront homes

Despite this, I am happy that we were on the buyer’s end of it so that a Cooper Jacobs Realtor was able to get such a great deal for OUR client on a great Oswego Lake property!!!!!  Congrats Brian Olsen for being such a great negotiator! He is also fiercely defensive on listing prices, so call him if you want someone to represent YOU and YOUR best interest.

Oswego Lake Country Club

Oswego lake country clubFore!  If you are interested in Lake Oswego real estate, then you are usually interested in golfing, schools, boating, or all three.

The Oswego Lake Country Club is a huge asset to the community and the desirability of living here.  -Courtney Cooper Olsen, Lake Oswego Realtor, Cooper Jacobs Real Estate

Tucked in around the towering evergreen trees and off Country Club Road in the North Shore – Country Club District is The Oswego Lake Country Club.  Since 1924 the Oak trees, Douglas Fir and Maple trees have provided paradise for golfers on the par 71 course. Skill and golf pride is truly felt in the fairways at OLCC. The Audubon Society recognized this club with the award for responsible stewardship. There are real grass practice grounds at the driving range with target greens. The practice bunkers and the short-game practice area is all professional. U.S. Amateur Champion Chandler Egan designed the original golf course and there’s no doubt he put a tremendous amount of thought into creating OLCC. Mr. Egan also played a vital part in reworking the links at Pebble Beach back in 1922 and most of us know PB is on most golfers short list to play one day.

Oswego Lake Club membership is an important part of maintaining the quality of play at OLCC.

Golf course maintenance is not inexpensive. A large staff is paramount in assisting that everything come together. Please contact the club office for more details on membership but here’s a brief outline. The social membership allows members to use club dining facilities, swimming pool, snack bars and participate in club functions. This level of membership allows use of the driving range and practice facilities and social status invites you to compete in in two-ball events. Proprietary membership opens up members to full club access! The course and range are available to use and there are voting privileges on initiatives that are raised by the club board and its committees. All facilities, events and amenities including junior programs are open to OLCC members at the proprietary level.

The CC motto is Live Where You Play and for 90 years members have called the OLCC an extension of their own homes. The clubhouse has museum quality golf memorabilia displayed within the landmarks walls. The property promotes comfort and class without being uptight and closed minded. In order to continue the success of these standards there are accommodating membership rates for applicants under age 39. This approach to membership promotes generations of contact with Lake Oswego’s pride in golf.
