Exciting find in Portland’s Laurelhurst Neighborhood!

By Greg Washington, March 27, 2019

I just want to say “Congratulations!” to my renovation client, Dennis Leiphon, for closing on this beautiful Laurelhurst home today.  The home was last on the market 43 years ago.  At 105 years old, it has clearly been cared for well.  An early example of Portland’s Colonial architecture, it was built at a time – 1914 –  when many homes being built were bungalows.  It has the signature Colonial formal entryway and large living room, formal dining room and four upstairs bedrooms.  The home needs a bit of updating which Dennis will do beautifully and carefully, taking the home’s original character into account.  I can’t wait to present it to all of you again when Dennis is finished with the project!
