Portland, OR 97212

An encore to Butler Redevelopment’s record setting sale on 36th, this grand modern home is situated just half a block from Wilshire Park. Playing off the fit and finish that the market loved in 2018, Butler has made some subtle changes to the cosmetics and a few simple tweaks to the bedroom layouts. Standing tall on one of Beaumont-Wilshire’s quietest streets, this newly built home is thoughtfully laid out across three gracious floors.

The main floor boasts an open living room and dining room with tall ceilings, tons of natural light and a main floor study or guest room tucked nicely in the SE corner. You can enter the great room / kitchen via a central hallway or through the open dining room where oak hardwoods are paired with rift white oak cabinetry and classic surface treatments. Cedar and Moss lighting, built-in bookshelves, and Ann Sacks swiss cross tiling on the fireplace speak to some of the high end finishes that compliment one of the finest kitchen / great rooms you will see on the Eastside. Rounding out the main floor is a full bathroom and easy access to the covered back porch through an expansive three panel door.

The second floor features an incredible master suite with dueling closets, a third light filled walk-in closet with oak built ins and a stunning en suite bathroom. The bathroom features a herringbone tiled shower pan, free standing tub and custom double vanity. Like the master bedroom, the three other bedrooms have been outfitted with sand in place oak hardwoods, smooth coat sheetrock and Schoolhouse lighting.  An additional full bathroom and laundry room round out the second floor which features gorgeous peek-a-boo views of the surrounding neighborhood and Wilshire Park.

Heading downstairs, the finished basement provides the perfect entertaining space and guest quarters. A wet bar and expansive family room run the entire length of the home, while a large fifth bedroom and fourth bathroom provide ample space for a large family or visiting guests. In addition to the finished spaces in the basement is an attached, tuck under garage with storage closet and direct access to the lower level.

This rare 4000 plus square foot modern home has a sought after Beaumont-Wilshire location at the southern foot of the park, just blocks to Beaumont shops and the community’s favorite restaurant – Tacovore. Whether taking in a book on the covered back porch, a basecamp for family and friends, or entertaining in the amazing great room, this home offers seemingly endless opportunities!

I grew up in a small college town in California where the backdrop was 1920’s bungalows, single level ranches and the San Gabriel Mountains. As a young boy I was an avid fort-builder and found myself drawn to architecture early. I can remember my mom dragging me through open houses in between soccer games on the weekend and watching my father tackle almost every home remodeling project under the sun. While I loved the surf, a love of the outdoors and 90’s grunge rock drew me north for college where I studied design and architecture. Summer and winter holiday trips back home to see my family gave me an excuse to stop in Portland where I would indulge in Montage mud pie and late night coffees at the Rimsky Korsakoffee House. Portland stuck with me and a couple years after college my wife Carrie and I moved here to start our family and my real estate career. Unlike many generational Realtors, I started from scratch in 2002. I would spend every day reading up on neighborhood histories, studying market trends and beefing up on my construction knowledge. A couple years prior, I had bought my first home and while my Realtor was friendly, I was surprised that their level of service had considerable room for improvement. From the beginning of my real estate career I have always been with my clients at every stage of the process with an unwavering attention to detail, deep rooted understanding of contract negotiations and Portland home construction. Soon my practice was almost exclusively referral based as the support of past clients helped me grow to be one of the top agents in my company. While accolades and awards have never served as motivation, I have always appreciated recognition by my peers and clients. Since 2005 I have been a Diamond-Platinum member of the Master’s Circle and in 2019 I was the Top Producer at Living Room Realty and one of less than 100 Realtors in the Portland metro awarded the Portland Monthly Five Star award for nine straight years. Accolades aside, my goal of improving my trade has never wavered. I received my developer’s license in 2013 and my contractor’s license three years later, not as capitalistic endeavors but with the goal of enriching the counsel I could give my clients. What was initially an academic endeavor to bolster my construction knowledge turned into a variety of projects for my clients ranging from the construction of new homes and ADUs, to the design of new kitchens and bathrooms and even the occasional restoration of a historic property. Today when I show my clients homes, I can point out the implications of 2x6 dimensional lumber in a third story attic, how to reconstruct a basement stairwell to be code compliant or why all parge coats aren’t created equal. When I am not picking a house apart for my clients, you can find me on the side of a soccer field cheering on one of my three children, with my wife in a ‘62 Grumman canoe on the Puget Sound or like my father, tackling remodeling projects at the hip roofed colonial I call home today.
