This one-of-a-kind Northwest Modern home was designed by Architect Otto Ritter in 1963 for his personal residence, later featured in Sunset Magazine and NW Magazine. The living space welcomes you with hemlock ceilings supported by clear vertical grain fir accents and an open floor plan, while picture windows frame Mother Nature in every window. The original wood-burning fireplaces offer a floating hearth that provides an inviting place to sit and admire the harmonious blend of architecture and nature.
The home offers Two master suites, three fireplaces, and a comfortable atmosphere enhanced by its easy access to the patios and decks for indoor/outdoor entertaining. Master bedroom & bath addition in the 1990s designed by Saul Zaik. Maintained pathways connect the patios, decks, lawns and gardens full of rhododendrons, azaleas, sword ferns, broadleaf maples, salal, Douglas fir trees and bulbs. Wildlife and a wide variety of birds regularly visit the property.
The private yet convenient neighborhood of Highland Crest is minutes to downtown Portland, NW 23rd Avenue, Nob Hill shopping, Forest Park hiking trails, Hoyt Arboretum bird watching, Oregon Zoo, Washington Park Rose Garden, and Sylvan and Raleigh Hills amenities. This is a modern masterpiece nestled into the trees with an aesthetic blend of wood & windows, space & light, indoor and out.
