Emil Schacht Architecture Refined
National Historic Landmark “Picturesque” Arts and Crafts
Inspiration from the old world and materials from the new world combined with the fit and finishes of 1905’s workmanship, hardware and architectural detailing allows the home to stand out as a fine example of the period.
The father of Portland’s Arts and Crafts Movement, Emil Schacht, designed this home of substantial comfort for successful land and livestock entrepreneur Henry Hahn in 1905. Inspired by European manor houses but using Oregon craftsmen and the thick solid old growth timber — and lots of it — throughout the home for which the Pacific NW is known. Schacht and Hahn were both German immigrants, hence the subtle nod to their homelands’ medieval half-timbered Tudor-style.
Set in an auspicious place on Cornell Road, a scenic drive and a show place for city, river and 3 mountain views that is within easy walking distance of NW Portland’s amenities, shops and parks.
