Contemporary Design with Exceptional Craftsmanship in Hillsdale
Portland, OR, USA
Come home to contemporary luxury and exceptional custom design in Portland’s enviable Hillsdale neighborhood. Construction on this noteworthy property was just completed in 2019 and this gorgeous open design home lives like it’s brand new with an aesthetic ideal for gathering with friends and family.
Designed by residential building specialists for their personal residence, all the lessons learned over years in the industry were incorporated into upgraded living, entertaining and recreating spaces with thoughtful details and dialed-in finishes. Built on land once a part of one of Portland’s oldest dairy families, the home sits amidst the rolling hills of southwest Portland that made up the Raz Brothers Dairy. With ties to some of the biggest names in Portland history including Alpenrose, many family members still own property in the area where their ancestor's cows once grazed and milk wagons trundled about with early morning deliveries.
