The 1955 stunner boasts forest views from every room.
This beautifully preserved midcentury home was originally designed by Danish architect John F. Jensen in 1955, and it’s thought to be one of a handful of Jensen-designed residences in Portland’s Vista Hills neighborhood. It merges Scandinavian simplicity with classic Northwest regional style, and it sits on a quarter-acre lot surrounded by old-growth cedar forest and Japanese-inspired landscaping.
The home was purchased in 2004 by a pair of Nike executives, who carefully restored its defining midcentury elements while updating it for modern living with energy-efficient upgrades and water-saving plants. Inside, a palette of natural materials—including teak, cedar, and slate—anchor walls of expansive glass and soaring ceilings.
