On Saturday, I went on the Design Matters home tour that was part of Portland’s Architecture and Design Festival this year. The tour was of 5 homes (and one new construction apartment development) and boy did I see of range of modern design: mid-century modern, straight-up modern, and even what I thought ventured towards northwest contemporary. Apparently I didn’t get nearly enough though because I still need to point out this 3-bedroom contemporary home that sold last week.
Located at 751 SW Westwood Dr, the nearly 3,300 square foot home was listed in the spring for $699K, went pending on Sept 15, and then quickly closed after that for $605K. The interiors are quite open and modern, especially the elevated 17′ ceiling in the living room. The wine cellar is no surprise but it isn’t every day that you see a home outfitted with a steel-coated gun locker :).
