Buy or sell your home with Kathryn Madison

This home is one of the most unusual homes I have ever seenin Portland. Built by local architect Richard Appleman in 1972, this Arlington Heights home has a decidedly Asian influence. While over 4,600 square feet, all the living spaces are highly compartmentalized. The entry area which is typically a small foyer, in this case runs along the length of the front of the home with a wide marble floor. It seems well suited for hanging large art pieces. The kitchen is one of the more open spaces and employs high contrast between white and black surfaces, opening out to an entertaining deck with built in barbeque area. The home divides itself between three levels, with the downstairs holding a large room that would work well as a media area. All walls are painted in high gloss enamel. I imagine the new owners to be entertainers with guests dressed in slinky outfits holding martinis. $950,000
