A classic home style in the Portland area is enjoying a renaissance. Tudor-style homes can be anything from three-bedroom bungalows to huge mansions but builders haven't been going with the Tudor design since the 60's, that is until now.
They've previously been found in some of the older neighborhoods like Alameda and Grant Park and some of these have been renovated, but you can also find brand new construction with the same elements. Half-timbered stucco, diamond-pane windows, oak floors, French doors, wrought iron railings and dark wood built-ins are some of the details that help define a Tudor home, and the appeal seems to be a perfect blending of modern and classic.
The variety is wonderful too because there is truly something to be found for almost every need. You can find an 80 year old home that you can fix up yourself or has already been done for you. There are brand new detached homes with all the accents and even condos and town homes are getting in on the act. Take a look and you'll quickly find something to your liking.
