~Believe it or not, I actually dream about this view,~ says owner Lesli Morrison while gazing out of the wall of windows overlooking what looks like a mountain-top view over acres and acres of forestry.  ~I don~t know if I like it better full of sun and blue sky, blanketed by snow or lit up with horizontal lightening,~ she adds.  It is just breathtaking in every season and in all weather,~ she finishes.  The towering contemporary sited at the very top of a community called Pleasant Hill in Historic Oella sitting in stark contrast to its quaint historic neighbors,  was originally designed by Lesli to fit right in with its counterparts but the landscape and the yearning for that view drove her design outward and upward; higher and higher, until she finally reached the top of the trees!  ~And just when the builder thought he was going to get a break, I showed him the 4-sided, 4 stories, resort-sized fireplace,~ she adds, laughing heartily.  If you lived here, you truly would LOVE it!
