Centerpiece of the Dunthorpe “Residential Park”
Portland, OR, USA
This farmhouse colonial is located in the heart of the exclusive Dunthorpe neighborhood, one of Portland’s oldest and loveliest residential neighborhoods featuring large estates, a welcoming community, and the coveted Riverdale School District. The estate is considered by historians as a centerpiece of the Dunthorpe “residential park”.
The home has been lovingly restored and recently reimagined with designer updates and decor, tastefully and elegantly appointed, yet comfortable. It features five-plus bedroom suites, seven bathrooms, seven fireplaces, a large bonus room, two family rooms, and elegant library with an adjoining office. Classic touches and artistry are plentiful with the added inclusion of modern conveniences.
Artistic elements that provide a continuity of design, include pocket doors with true divided light glass panels, generous crown moldings, French doors, wainscoting, and hardwoods. Counter-plays of light emanate from double French doors and true divided light windows play patterns on expansive hardwood floors. High ceilings and suburb craftsmanship make this a rare offering.
French doors lead outdoors, to seemingly endless lawns, terraces, and groomed European-style gardens with boxwood hedges. The house commands an evergreen-lined & beautifully landscaped site featuring a stunning pool, glorious flower gardens, outdoor terraces, and privacy. The estate and grounds were featured in the 2016 prestigious Garden Club of America Garden Tour.
