This beautiful home on one of Portlands most desirable streets is looking for it’s third owner. Built in 1923, designed by popular architect William Purcell, this home is full of original details in all the right places. The living room features open beams, restrained details in the original stained glass doors and the fireplace tile surround and a depiction of (possibly) Salishan views over the fireplace. Textured plaster walls, light fixtures, built-ins, all in perfect condition are to be found in the dining room too. Three bedrooms upstairs with 1 bathroom; a bedroom on the main with full guest bathroom and lastly an office or music room (with piano) with french doors to the back yard. A full dry basement houses the washer/dryer, with plenty of storage space left over. There are a few things that make this house special. Firstly that huge side yard – its rare! The house itself has been meticulously cared for over the years and all the right things have been done, including earthquake strapping. The kitchen could do with a counter top upgrade, and upstairs the bathroom needs to be expanded into the closet behind to make a lovely room serving all three bedrooms. The interior designer in me is dying to be let loose! OPEN this Sunday June 9th noon-2pm.
I am both a Realtor and Interior Designer. I have transitioned from simply selling homes to selling what makes homes beautiful.
