" ‘Quintessence’, is the fifth and highest essence after the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water, thought to be the substance of the heavenly bodies and latent in all things. As you approach the home your eyes will be drawn to two of the major elements; fire and water. Ponds are set ablaze but this is not solely for aesthetic reasons as this home is built to also show respect for the elements. ‘Quintessence’ utilizes elements in their most natural form so much so that the home is on target to be awarded the largest, luxury home in the state of Oregon with a Platinum Earth Advantage Certification."
