Frank Shell mid century - built 1955 - SOLD


The Frank Shell residential projects seem to be  having tough luck in today’s market. The past home that I featured by Shell is still on market going on a couple of years.

Enter Frank Shell home #2 on market that is also a bank owned home and at this moment is far from a fixer. This Shell designed mid century modern home is located in NW Portland on a large 3/4 acre lot on a dead end street and was originally designed by Shell for a local doctor. I toured this home the other day and the previous owners had put a lot of money into high end upgrades and restoration of this home, it’s sad that it went to the bank but someone lucky buyer will benefit from all of their hard work at it’s current sticker price of just $595k.

Some of the features:

  • 4 beds, 2.5 baths
  • 2,902 sq ft
  • Exposed aggregate concrete floors in main entrance and master suite (also seen extensively in the Canterbury house)
  • Master in separate wing of house with sitting room
  • Cedar sauna in master bath along with walk in shower and jetted tub (spa)
  • Floor to ceiling windows in main living space with 2 fireplaces
  • Upper outdoor entertaining area off of kitchen
  • mid century home

    master bedroom with sliding wall panels to sitting room and concrete floors
