MLS# 17273996

BEDS: 3  BATHS: 2  •  1,826 Sq.Ft. / LOT 8,349 Sq.Ft.

 

Built in 1966 by developer Robert Rummer, with design inspiration by Claude Oakland and A. Quincy Jones (Jones & Emmons Architects), this home is a classic example of post and beam architecture that quietly blends into its surroundings by combining mid-century modern and Pacific Northwest aesthetics.  

Echoing the exterior, the interior palette encourages the experience of an indoor / outdoor living environment including the use of Vermont slate floors that evenly distribute the warmth of the original radiant heat system. The open floor plan surrounds the floor-to-ceiling glass atrium, offering an expansive feel and natural light throughout. The three bedroom two bath home makes the most of the outdoors with each bedroom offering a glass slider to one of the four landscaped yards. Inspired by Japanese gardens, each yard offers a different feel and low maintenance approach to the design.

In a neighborhood full of mid-century modern architecture, this home is an exceptional example of a design philosophy that brings the outside in.

Local Greenway 

fanno creek trail & vista brook park

Along its length, the Fanno Creek Trail passes through forests, wetlands, and a variety of parks, making it a great destination for walking, running, biking, recreation, and wildlife viewing. 

Wildlife opportunities abound along the Trail, from native Pacific tree frogs in wetlands to active beavers in the creek. Red-tailed Hawks, Great Blue Herons and Great Egrets are a common sight at Koll Center Wetlands.
