This Victorian house in Willamette Heights was featured in the October edition of Portland Monthly Magazine and was described as “urban modern meets eclectic, funky, tongue-in-cheek spunky” by Vanillawood, the design firm that helped the current owners update the home. The 24′ x 16′ deck with spiral staircase is enough to suck anyone into the listing but the magazine article highlights the smaller details:
…wallpapered one bathroom with pages of an old ornithology book; upstairs, a small office is hidden behind what appears to be a solid wall. Pops of orange and pink appear throughout, set against mostly neutral backdrops. Even the exterior deliberately contrasts the warm cedar siding of the deck-and-kitchen remodel against the all-black color of the rest of the house.
The remodeled Queen Anne Victorian home includes 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, and 2,818 square feet. Located at 2939 NW Raleigh St, the home was last purchased for $887K in 2008, most recently listed in August for $949K, and shows as under contract as of Oct 18 on Redfin.
