I couldn't help but share this little house because it's in my stomping ground of the Mt. Tabor neighborhood here in Portland. My son Fisher actually went to Mt. Tabor middle school. I am not exactly sure how I feel about it from these photos. It's interesting but if I were just to see these photos I may say it seems a bit confused. But knowing this neighborhood and knowing Portland, it makes sense.
This is a lovely neighborhood, it's near my one of my favorite streets, Hawthorne (if you have read my blog more than twice you have probably heard me mention it. It's where my favorite book store is, as well as my favorite crêperie). There is a huge and gorgeous tree filled park on top of the dormant volcano of Mt. Tabor, which is actually quite a tiny little mountain, in fact I am not sure how it qualifies as a mountain at all. There are beautiful views of the city, a water reserve, and grand old houses nestled next to your bungalows and craftsmans. It's a traditional neighborhood in the upper end of the bustling and eclectic street of Hawthorne where people flock for shopping and breakfast on the weekends. It's probably where my doctor lives. Or at least someones doctor.
So the exterior in keeping the traditional elements while mixing in some rather space-age modern designs probably gives the home owner what they wanted in the neighborhood they wanted without offending the neighborhoods traditional vibe. It's a little business in the front and party in the back. And I have to say I have never seen bedrooms like these ones, ever.
