Need some love? How about some, Mid-century Love, in Vancouver!

By Martin Cross, December 1, 2018

From the moment you enter this exceptional mid-century home you will fall in love with the attention to detail and amazing sense of design. Built in 1946 this home has been lovingly updated with amenities that complement the original design. Clean mid-century lines are accentuated and enhanced by luxurious high-end contemporary finishes. The welcoming floor plan is perfect for daily living and entertaining both indoors and out.

The expansive living room greets you with vaulted ceilings, gas fireplace with marble surround, nearly floor to ceiling windows, period built-in bookshelves, cabinets, and a full wall of gorgeous mirrored display shelves.

The outstanding master suite has been fully remodeled and features a gas fireplace, high end lighting, and window coverings, Ralph Lauren carpet and a beautifully designed walk in closet, along with a separate sitting area with custom built ins and a fully renovated master bath. Down the hall is the spacious second bedroom and a cozy den or third bedroom with deluxe built in desk.

The crown jewel of this end of the house is the incredible, completely renovated main bathroom featuring custom bamboo vanity, room divider and cabinet, ceramic tile walls, Marmoleum flooring, high end fixtures, glass enclosed shower, and an amazing Japanese soaking tub.

At the other end of the house is the marvelous, completely remodeled family room with vaulted knotty pine, tongue and groove ceilings, stone accent wall, newer gas fireplace insert, tile hearth, Marmoleum floors and a built-in home audio system with custom stereo cabinet. Beyond the open pass-through lies the lovely tiled kitchen with cork floors, gas appliances and counter space galore, flanked on one side by a charming dining nook and on the other by an elegant formal dining room.

The outdoor areas are just as incredible featuring lush, meticulously groomed landscaping, winding paths to separate patio areas, a small kidney shaped pool with water feature, and access to the artist studio with double doors that opens onto a private patio with fountain.

The exterior of the home was almost entirely redone in 2009, including Hardiplank siding, several custom doorways, many new windows, updated exterior lighting and a new rock and tile entryway.

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.
