1825 SW Vista Avenue, Portland, Oregon, United States, 97201
Welcome to one of Portland’s most prominent and historic landmark homes. This striking Georgian Colonial Revival was recently reduced to $2.79 million after hitting the market in April for $3.2 million. Listing Details: A unique opportunity to own a piece of Portland history. 1825 SW Vista Avenue has been known as one of the most famous and iconic Portland historic homes. Finished in 1908 for Portland businessman and City Commissioner John Annand. This stately Georgian Colonial revival icon has been called home by several Portland historical figures. When John Annand was acting City Commissioner and an influential member of the street committee in Portland, he used his powerful position to see that structural reinforcement and grading of the main arterial passed beneath his selected home site. This property sits on SW Vista Avenue with panoramic views of the city, Mt. St. Helens, and majestical mountain scapes in the surrounding distance.
Listing Details: In the 1950s, hardwood floors and glass tile were covered in linoleum, wainscot was buried by drywall and Douglas fir counters were hidden by formica. Fortunately, original features were preserved under these mid-century features. Owners since the late 1990s have worked to carefully restore the home’s turn-of-the-last-century grandeur while installing modern upgrades. Perched perfectly on an elevated lot atop Portland’s sweeping Vista Ave is the perfect opportunity to purchase a piece of history. The property sits on SW Vista Avenue with panoramic views of the city, Mt. St. Helens, and majestical mountain scapes in the surrounding distance. The first thing one notices when stepping inside is the elegant sophistication of the space. Oak hardwood floors throughout, original stained glass windows and red fir wainscot flow around a gorgeous staircase to the second floor bedrooms. Ample entertainment space in several generously sized rooms commends this home to be an entertainers dream. Natural daylight streams through abundant banks of windows and every room is lined with exquisite chandeliers. Crowning the entrance is a graceful bowed balcony for a bird’s eye view of the city. The property is on the market for $2.79 million with Tami D. Ferrey of Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty. Photography and information found on Cascade Sotheby’s International Realty.
