Susie & Matt Know 2 Mid-century Marvels

The spring market’s in full swing and we’ve had the honor of listing 2 mid-century gems this week and we wanted to show you some of their gorgeous features.

Home 1 (Open Saturday) | Vintage Meets Modern at 4132 N Missouri Ave Portland, OR 97217

4 Beds | 2 Baths | 3,200 SF| 7,500 SF Lot
Open House Saturday 11:00 am to 2:00 pm

This Boise-Eliot (N. PDX) Ranch – near Overlook & steps to Mississippi Ave’s foodie row – was built in 1948 and the seller mentioned it having “Transitional” style where the period details of say, a 1920s Tudor (gumwood trim, built-ins, coved ceilings, archways) meet the burgeoning mid-century aesthetic that would come to dominate the 1950s. And the sellers let the original charm shine through leaving all of the vintage delights in place while giving the home some mega upgrades for functionality.

The kitchen updates include Caesarstone quartz (extra durable w/ lifetime warranty) and black stainless steel appliances = A fabulous chef’s kitchen to prep in while watching sunset over the West Hills.

The living and dining rooms boast floor-to-ceiling windows and since the home is on a raised lot, the light floods in year-round.

Main level living with 3 bedrooms and full bath on the main floor …

And have a look at the metal roof with the dreamiest cedar tongue-and-groove soffits under the wide eaves. Enjoy a sunset cocktail under them on the front porch or pop down to the entertainer’s lanai!

There’s a lot more to see in this home on a cul-de-sac … like the huge lower level w/ sauna & 4th bedroom and expansive backyard with alley access. Virtual tour here. Open House Saturday (4/2) 11:00 am to 2:00 pm. Offered at $899,000.
