Mid Century Beaverton Residence / Robert Rummer


This charming, light-filled four-bedroom in Beaverton, Oregon was built by Robert Rummer, a renowned developer who erected some 750 homes in the Portland metro area between 1959 and 1970, according to The Oregonian.

Built in 1964, the four-bedroom-two-bath post-and-beam measures 190 square metres, and boasts a large, central atrium with glazed walls, a feature often found in Rummer’s homes. The bright and airy space sets the tone for the rest of the house, which is equally open and cheery.

A great room with a soaring tongue-and-groove panelled ceiling, portions of floor-to-ceiling windows, and brick fireplace flows into a dining room and updated eat-in kitchen, all with views set toward the backyard. Each spacious room has plenty of natural light flooding into it, and the bathrooms have all been updated.

The property, located at 7155 SW 105th Avenue, comes with a new membrane roof and high efficiency furnace and air conditioning unit as well as fresh landscaping. With a few more upgrades, this classic house could really be something. Get it for $569,900 — via Curbed
