how much house can I afford? even when you don’t live in that state — not because it’s the home of your dreams, per se, but because it’s got that killer combination of history, charm, and a price tag that feels palatable when compared to what you’re used to seeing in your own megalopolis.
Located in Eugene, Oregon, the 190-square-metre mid century three-bedroom was completed in 1967 as a personal residence by Robert Mention, who helmed the 1980s expansion of the Eugene Airport. With a swooping and beamed ceiling, soaring windows, open floor plan, two decks, and serene views of the surrounding nature, the home sits pretty on a 688-square-metre lot.
