    I think this is considered Minimal Traditional. The inside is so stinking cute but with the way Portland real estate is I’m not sure it’ll stay so original. Crossing my fingers this won’t be flipped into brand new everything.

      I think you’re on to something Kelly. Someone will snatch it up (even at this price) and turn everything into grey/white blandness.
      Outside of the wallpaper I love every inch of this—especially that fantastic kitchen! The whole house couldn’t be cuter if it tried. 🙂

    It has been awhile since I have seen foil wallpaper-Mod! Cute little home. Love the kitchen.

    Didn’t expect that wonderful interior! What a great kitchen, and the bathrooms, too. Hope it stays this original with the next owner!

    Wow! I was dreading getting to the kitchen pictures, and what an awesome surprise! Even a vintage fridge!!! This place is freakishly adorable, and I am praying to the old house gods that it stays that way!

    This place is amazing. So much original to love. Light fixtures, the kitchen!, bathrooms (dig that groovy black and yellow). I’d love to get my hands on it. So little to change, but just a couple updates would perhaps make this place worth the pretty dear price they are asking. (I assume all of Portland real estate is pricey).

      Yes, it’s pricey and getting continuously worse. People who’ve lived and worked in Portland (and elsewhere) all their lives are being forced out—they can’t afford to buy, or even rent!

  6. So cute! So original!!

    This was really a single owner for 81 years? Must have bought the house young and are/were really old now.

    My heart stopped when I got to the kitchen……..that range and fridge are exactly what I grew up with..! I so hope they don’t get thrown out. I bet they still work just fine, and if not, can be refurbished. If I bought this house, I’d feel I’d come full circle in my life..!!?

    I don’t know, I’d have to do something about that acoustic tile in the upstairs bedroom. Everything else though? Keeper!

    This home made me realize that I can’t figure out how I want to remodel my bathroom because I need to take it back to how it originally would have looked.

      That’s an awesome realization! I’ve been planning to backdate my bathroom too. It’s perfectly acceptable as is but I want it to be more appropriate to the house’s style and era.

    Great house! Lotsa rain! Smiles!

    Very appealing interior and I love the curved/cove walls ….but how is that a legal garage attached to the yellow house on the left? It’s right up to what looks like the property line. Puzzles me.

    That breakfast nook! The kitchen and baths, everything about it! How darling can a house be?
