IMMACULATELY PRESERVED FABER PRAIRIE-STYLE CRAFTSMAN!

By Living Room Realty, April 16, 2018

132 NE Ainsworth Street, PORTLAND, OR 97211


Own a piece of architectural history with this immaculately preserved 1909 A H Faber Prairie Style Craftsman!

Faber, the home’s notable architect, was best-known for his liberal experimentation with materials and techniques. Continually searching for ways to use local stone in his designs, you can definitely see his hand in this home.

Features of this ultra-desirable property include original woodwork in the main rooms, coffered ceilings and an ashlar stone fireplace surround with framed original artwork. As well as ashlar Phoenix Sandstone walls, Povey Brothers stained glass in the stairway, tripartite wooden columns flanking the entry to the coat closet, and a curved wooden banister. 

The third floor billiard room comes with its original raised detail fresco on all four sides of the ceiling, and the awning windows in the ballroom have Craftsman “nine-pane” muntins. Other highlighted architectural details include bellcast roofs on the house, dormers and porch, leaded glass in the entry, and a rough cut stone chimney with crenellated chimney cap. The attached garage features a 1 bedroom / 1 bath ADU on the second level.

Along with this stunning, masterpiece of a home is a beautiful outdoor area with multiple outdoor seating options for dining al fresco and entertaining.
