This historic Irvington home masterfully unites two Portland icons: Designed by renowned Portland architect John Virginius Bennes (Hollywood Theater and several other significant buildings) and perfected by Tinker Hatfield (Fortune Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Designers of the 20th Century and one of footwear’s most innovative minds), this Prairie Style home with Italian Renaissance detailing fuses a structure that’s classic with a spirit that’s contemporary.
Originally built in 1912 and placed on a majestic double-corner lot, the 5,616-square-foot home offers a wide-open floor plan with 5 comfortable bedrooms, 3.5 updated bathrooms, a modern kitchen with granite counters and sunken den and an elegant, formal dining room. The openness of the interior feels endless as glass doors invite natural light from the outside to dance upon the Japanese-inspired geometric molding and Honduran mahogany wainscoting. Downstairs is a fully finished basement with an impressive family room and a second full-service kitchen.
The Hatfields have completed a meticulous refurbishment of the exterior in recent years, restoring the grand style of this home and taking great care to match the original materials and finishes of the design era. Inside the fully fenced yard, wide eaves, a low-pitched tile roof, banded windows with built-in window boxes, multiple balconies, a peaceful pavilion and a glass-enclosed breakfast nook on the west side complete the veneer of this picturesque home in a most coveted Portland neighborhood.
