It seems Portland has no shortage of midcentury modern homes of note – but the 1953 Concordia property is particularly noteworthy thanks to its cache of original details and cabin-like interiors.
The single-storey, three-bedroom Portland property was initially designed for William Rochat. It features box beams and vaulted wooden ceilings across its interiors to cultivate the cabin look.
And while it changed hands a number of times in the subsequent decades, its mcm charm has been lovingly preserved – it’s now listed via Compass affiliate John Hefferin (of Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty System) for $798,000.
Of note is period lighting, wrapped mahogany panelling and ‘roman brick’ fireplace in the living room – a broad, terracotta-coloured brick chimney that doubles as a room divider.
A tiled hearth runs the length of the brick chimney while a wall of windows flanks the space, drawing light into its wood-panelled spaces with the aid of overhead skylights.
