Listed with Tracy Hasson of Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s International Realty for $3.55m, the modernist marvel is located at 1901 S Comus Street and was designed by the master architect in 1941. By this point, Richard Neutra had been in the States for almost 20 years and had built his reputation on his breezy brand of California Modernism, which prioritised simplicity and adaptability to the climate.
This connection to nature is most obvious on the main level, where sliding glass doors open to a vast deck area – essentially an outdoor living room, with expansive views across the wooded hillside to the river and mountains beyond.
Interiors are updated but retain their modernist spirit. The living room is particularly of note, with its ribbon windows framing views of the foliage and a feature fireplace wall, with a stone hearth and surround and wood panelled upper.
Living spaces span 6887 sq ft, including five bedrooms, and there’s a tonne of built-ins designed by the architect.
The Portland property is minutes from downtown and Lake Oswego. Take a peek in the gallery above.
