This beautifully restored Irvington work of art bears the mark of influential Oregon architect, Ellis F. Lawrence, who worked on the initial design plans for this home. Lawrence lived in Portland and served as Dean of the School of Architecture at the University of Oregon during the early 20th century. His works include the Knight Library and the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art as well as almost 30 residences in Portland on the National Register of Historic Places. Lawrence was a member of a generation of eclectic architects that juxtaposed traditional with modern and
formal with informal.

Situated on a quarter acre corner lot, this property is a rare find in the particularly
desirable Irvington neighborhood. The residence has been carefully and thoroughly
brought up to modern day living standards with countless updates while preserving its superb original architectural details. The main level offers lovely living spaces perfect for entertaining and a fully remodeled gourmet kitchen featuring custom cabinetry, honed granite counters, and high-end appliances. Boasting a luxurious atmosphere, the primary bedroom suite features its own gas fireplace, a walk-in closet and a spa-like bathroom with heated tile floors and a glass enclosed tile shower.

This is truly a piece of Portland history invigorated with new life to carry it into the next 100 years!
