Historic Irvington Mediterranean – Whole House Remodel

Winner of 2017 Oregon Home Structure + Style Award: Major Remodel Over $400,000


Originally designed and built in 1926 by architect Robert B. Beat, this 5,000 sqft estate in Irvington is an exceptionally attentive rebuild of this historic home from the ground up. It harmonizes its original Mediterranean character with a clean, fresh aesthetic in concert with modern function and space planning. The home features seismic upgrades, water penetration mitigation, and all-wood leaded glass replacement Marvin windows.

A grand, custom wrought iron staircase greets you in the formal foyer as a circular floorplan expands in all directions around you. The overall spaciousness of the main level is balanced by an intimacy provided by the distinct yet interconnected spaces including a light-filled solarium, an inviting formal living room with custom built-in bookcases, and a quaint eat-in breakfast nook with double french doors leading out to the lushly landscaped backyard.

Both the upper and lower levels of the home received equal attention and care. The spacious master suite is a marvel with two unbelievable walk-in closets and an elegant ensuite master bathroom soaked in southern light throughout the day. A sweet jack and jill bathroom unifies two bedrooms, one with a perfect Juliet balcony for stargazing. The lower level features a handsome wood built-in bar and wine cabinet adjacent to the cozy family room with fireplace to relax by. A private guest quarters is provided downstairs off of the family room next to a second laundry area (the upstairs features its own laundry as well) and fantastic storage space.
