Just Listed! Estate living with a rich history in the heart of the city! This sprawling 1915 mansion is the namesake home of the neighborhood. Built in Colonial Revival style on a raised corner lot that once overlooked large swaths of undeveloped land to the east of Ladd’s Addition, this home made an impression from the very beginning. “Colonial Heights” was born.
An architectural wonder by Whitehouse and Fouilhoux (Waverley Country Club), this home has been lovingly restored over the past 20+ years making it a private paradise just blocks to dining, shopping & so much more.
Grand spaces with exquisite details abound: French doors, oversized fireplaces, Palladian windows, chandeliers sparkling across dentil moulding & box beams. 7 bedrooms (5 with attached play/ sitting/ office space) and 5.2 bathrooms. City views & endless space for work & play, indoors & out. No detail has been spared over 4 levels in this sweeping restoration marrying the charm of the past with top-of-the-line upgrades of the future.
Seamless flow from stately room to room. Opulent living room with fireplace and French doors opening to the covered brick porch that overlooks the boxwoods & fountains of the manicured backyard. Main floor office with marble fireplace. Formal dining with an attached sunroom can accommodate the largest of holiday gatherings. Gourmet kitchen with breakfast area and butler’s pantry make entertaining a breeze.
The grandeur of the main level continues up the wide staircase to the 2nd floor featuring 4 airy bedrooms and 3 marble baths. The primary suite boasts an attached bedroom/nursery in addition to an elegant sitting/dressing room with a fireplace and surround sound. The 3rd floor features 3 more bedrooms, 2 ensuite baths and an oversized family room with an attached reading room & soapstone fireplace serving as the focal point of upstairs life with space for hobbies galore.
The lower level with a mosaic tile floor currently features a workshop, walk-in pantry, spacious laundry room with natural light, a half bath, storage space galore and an exterior entrance leading to the lighted sport court. A backyard gazebo patio is plumbed for an outdoor kitchen. The carriage house features a full 1 bed, 1 bath apartment over the 3-car garage.
This distinguished home has been upgraded without compromise with custom designs sourced from the world over and now sparkles in the period charm first captured by its esteemed architects. Among the first homes built in this classic neighborhood, it remains the crown jewel of Colonial Heights & Southeast Portland to this day. Welcome home.
