10 Oddball Portland-Area Homes Get Flipped: See Crazy Before & After Photos

By Living Room Realty, July 10, 2019

A good flipper can see a house with good bones – even when it’s buried in debris. These design and function masterminds can lay down cash for a dwelling deemed unlivable, then remodel, restore, and remake it into a property a new buyer will pay a bundle for – or so they hope.

Designer Stewart Horner of Penny Black Interiors bought this 1896 house in the Southwest Hills and remodeled it into a chic contemporary masterpiece.

A two-story house in the Montavilla neighborhood was built in 2010 as an exact replica of the haunted mansion from the 1960s television show “The Munsters.” In 2017 new owners took this home from spooky to suburban, trading gargoyles for gardens.

A 1931 English farmhouse in the Woodlawn neighborhood was represented by Living Room brokers Tony Le and Jake Goodson. It sold for $365,000 in January 2019, and with “new systems throughout including all new electrical, new furnace/heat pump, new water heater and new roof, windows and gutters,” it sold for $615,000 in May 2019.
