Architect Charles Ertz – Designer of Landmark Properties
Mediterranean with Moorish Flair on Westover Terraces
A triple crown winner: first in its association with its architect, Charles Ertz, second, the sought after location of the close-in NW Heights, and third, the home itself, a romantic light filled pleasure palace offering city, mountain, and neighborhood views.
There are more Landmark properties on the National Register attributed to Charles Ertz than any other architect in Portland living or deceased. Owners have upgraded the kitchen for serious chefs and preserved many original features that give the home its romance. Gleaming oak floors, elegant wrought iron railings, French doors opening to balconies, repeating archways throughout, classic cast concrete details create a sense of exotic timelessness. There’s a ball room with 5 sets of arched multi-paned French doors and Spanish tiled floor that begs for a tango.
This special home is reminiscent of Provence, the Amalfi Coast, or old Seville, has a distinguished lineage and is located on an equally beautiful hillside. It is firmly grounded right here in hip and happening Portland.
2 car attached garage and lower level ballroom.
4 bedroom, 2 full and 2 ½ baths, 4,514 sq ft
