You’re breaking my heart…
Well, maybe not mine but I think a few hearts were broken when my lovely buyers scored this beautifully renovated Rummer on SW Cecilia Terrace in an intense multiple offer situation. The home is so unique and perfectly move-in ready and was the “one” for my clients so we worked hard to figured out the sellers wants and needs and put together an offer that could not be refused.
What is a Rummer home?
Robert Rummer launched Rummer Homes Inc. in 1959 and specialized in building modern marvels in Beaverton, Gresham, and Lake Oswego (with a few custom outliers). One of the most unique features of the Rummer homes are the central atriums that most models boast that bring the outdoors to the center of the home. Other unique features of the Rummer homes are: large floor to ceiling glass windows that bring the outdoors in, post and beam construction (beams originally painted in Rhodda’s Oxford Brown), vaulted ceilings wth a single or double gable design in some models, galley kitchens with Thermadore stainless ovens and cooktops, radiant heat floors and a sunken Roman shower/bath.
Over the past 10 years I have worked to build an extensive database of people interested in knowing more about these homes, buyers looking to purchase them and sellers curious about what their unique home might be worth. I also live in a unique modern home and understand first hand the joys and pains that come with caring for these special places. If you are interested in purchasing or selling a modern home, Rummer homes, or mid–century homes contact me – I keep my fingers to the pulse of this market and would love to help!
