From the Agent: “This striking midcentury home is located in a secluded pocket of NW Portland’s Skyline neighborhood, which also boasts a collection of other significant architectural gems. Originally a ‘Live Better Electrically—Gold Medallion Home,’ the dwelling was thoughtfully reenvisioned in 2013 by its owners, a pair of creative directors obsessed with design and modern architecture, and it shows. The renovation of this primarily single-level home resulted in an added family room on the lower level, three full–en suite bedrooms, five baths, three outdoor living/entertainment areas, and inclusion into the 2015 Portland Modern Homes Tour.”
