$2.2 Million Mansion
If staying under the two and half million dollar budget in PDX is important to you, along with a more traditional, albeit huge single family dwelling is more your style, then check out this massive Portland mansion! It’s a 1926 Grand Traditional Portland home that resembles more of a high-end hotel from the outside, not because it looks like a boxy hotel, but because of its sheer size. This million dollar Portland home will set you back a cool $2.2 million because it features 6 bedrooms and get this, 7 full bathrooms that sprawl over a total of 7,500 sq feet. Imagine cleaning that?
If the size of this multi-million dollar Portland palace wasn’t enough as we’ve already described, it also sits on 1.17 private acres and has breathtaking views of Mt. Hood. It has a master suite that overlooks the perfectly manicured grounds and even includes 2 separate laundry “centers” inside. There is an expected, yet amazing gourmet kitchen with the highest quality appliances, intricate wood ceilings, and custom tile flooring. The home has top of the line hardwood flooring, a refurbished bonus basement and a basketball court.
Who knew Portland had homes like this???
A Mediterranean Estate In Portland?
