Every fairy tale has a beginning, and for one buyer, the storybook English cottage at 2208 NE 28th Ave. could be just that — although they may have to find a pot o’ gold at the end of a rainbow first.
The charming historic residence in Northeast Portland’s Grant Park neighborhood is listed with Windermere Real Estate at $4 million, 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, and 7,247 sqft. It features a modern kitchen, theater room, home gym, and earthquake retrofitting.
Renowned architect Carl L. Linde designed the house in 1925 — the same year he contributed to Shemanski Fountain — incorporating rounded roof lines and an early example of an attached garage (a sign of the increasing prevalence of automobiles at the time).
Currently, the property is owned by Anna Kimmel, principal at Finley Grace Design, whose own work has appeared in Architectural Digest.
