Craftsman Bungalows in Woodstock PDX

By
Real Estate Agent with Soldera Properties 201218282

 

When taking a look at homes in the Woodstock area you will probably observe that many of them are Craftsman Bungalows. Craftsman's origins are from Britain, however they were quickly and steadfastly made popular in the United States by several famous architects and designers. These homes are simplistic and speak to the style of Frank Lloyd Wright, a direct backlash in the 1900's to the ornamented and grandiose style of the Victorian Era. These Bungalows often feature low pitched roofs, which tend to be gabled or hipped, with rafters exposed over large verandas. This style embraced handiwork and natural materials – many featuring stone or stucco siding.

 

Historically known as one of the oldest neighborhoods in Portland, many of the homes here were built in the 1900's, and some built as early as the 1880's. Woodstock was first mapped for development in 1889, so it's no surprise that one of the most popular housing styles of the time would be prevalent here. The charm of this area is synonymous with the appeal of these beautifully moderate, hand-crafted homes.

You gotta wonder how did they stop building these gems and instead toss up a bunch of track housing !

Nothing beats an early 1900's craftsman fully restored, especially in the Woodstock neighborhood!

I'm sure you have beautiful historic cap cod homes in Franklin. We have a huge demand for the craftsman homes right now in Portland, OR.
