When this revitalized home came on the market in the fall, its craftsmanship and attention to detail made a testament to Queen Anne Victorian homes throughout Portland. The developer, Treece & Lambert, took this 1894 victorian and added modern amenities while staying true to the home's history. Pushing the price per square foot for Abernethy, the developers opened up the existing attic to take advantage of an extraordinary view of downtownâan uncommon feature for Southeast homes.
The main challenge with this home was preserving the architectural integrity while creating a 21st century floor plan. They incorporated the beautifully restored cedar staircase, original floors, and stained class windows for vintage touches in the midst of modern amenities. With a light-filled solarium on the second floor, the floor plan kept a Victorian feel to the layout while adding square footage for modern livability.
Our media team captured the story behind this one-of-a-kind property from construction to finish. When the vintage and modern amenities of this home combined with our marketing, buyers and all their friends couldn't stay away from the website and open house. In the end, more than 80 groups came through the open houses, the video tours had 1,011 views, and the home received an offer only 7 days after being finished.
