Laurelhurst English

This home is by far the most generously sized and graceful English style home I have ever viewed in Portland. Facing Laurelhurst Park, the home has an imposing street appeal. I was struck immediately on entering by the large, sunlit living room which also faces the park. Around every corner, I was pleasantly surprised. The owners chose to improve the kitchen with a tasteful mix of modern touches- stainless steel subway tile on the backsplash and onyx countertops meshed well with the tin metal ceiling.

The layout on the main includes a intimate and private study.

All the baths, and there are two full and two half baths, have been updated with an eye towards respect for the original 1920's period yet with modern materials- always understated and of fine quality. There are four (hard to find) bedrooms upstairs, with one of the children's bedrooms featuring the most charming little sink and miniature bathtub. Currently, one of the larger bedrooms is being used as a family/media room, though the basement also offers an area for a rousing game of ping pong.

This home is well taken care of with numerous updates and would make a fine home close to many east side urban delights. $825,000
