Perched on a hill above greenspace, this home is truly unlike no other.  The wall of windows fills the home with natural light and makes you feel like you are living in the trees. The vaulted open beam, wood ceilings and incredible floor to ceiling rock fireplace are focal points of it’s high end mid-century modern architecture.

Designed and built by Willard E. Schwarz in 1964 at which time the home was awarded the distinction of being a Gold Medallion Home, for innovative use of electricity. This two bedroom two bath treehouse backs up to George Himes park, is just 5 minutes from downtown in the Parkhill neighborhood exactly one mile from Hillsdale proper and Wilson High.

The flexible living space affords many possibilities. Perhaps the lower level could be converted to additional living space and used for a family member or as a rental, either long term or Airbnb.

I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 20 years in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood of SE Portland. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area. After almost 25 years filling people's homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally. As a business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of problem solving, coordination with others, and hard work. I always say..."Great things rarely come from a 40 hour work week." If you want a Portland native who is hard working, responsive, and compassionate - give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, brand new, or a fixer.
