Not often you see an agent’s photos in black and white, but it works for this 1950s Van Evera Bailey-designed midcentury property in Portland, Oregon, USA.
Not much detail from the agent, except to sat this is ‘a piece of mid-century history’ from ‘one of the NW architects who developed a modern style for the region’.
But the photos do tell us pretty much what we need to know.
This 1952 build looks to have been either superbly renovated or well maintained. At the very least it looks faithful to the original design, right down to the fixtures and fittings. If anything has been changed, it is in keeping with the original look and feel of the place.
Love the bold use of cedar wood for the vertical siding, as well as the beans and timber ceiling, the open space and full height windows as well as the balcony areas looking out onto the greenery across and below. There’s a spiral staircase in there too, which is always a welcome addition.
You get 2,439 sq. ft. of living space, which includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, plenty of reception space and an angular kitchen area. 15,682 sq. ft. outside too, as well as a cool car port and wonderful driveway.
It looks pretty sparse and really needs someone to add a few finishing touches. If that’s you, the asking price is $699,000.
