Modern Living Wrapped in Vintage Charm in Lake Oswego, Oregon
Perched above the lake in Lake Oswego, Oregon, with stunning lake views, this beautiful historic home is an exquisite combination of vintage style and modern sophistication. It is a home that has been meticulously cared for, keeping the best of its original architectural details, as well as thoughtfully reimagined, adding both interior and exterior features that create spaces for modern living.
Built in 1933 by renowned local architect Richard Sundeleaf, the home’s timeless architecture reflects a Tudor Revivalist - English Cottage style that has an abundance of character and charm. Ever-evolving and carefully curated over time, the Dr. Walter Black House, as it is named in historic registries, is a wonderfully modern family home wrapped in a vintage package.
Great care has been taken throughout the years to maintain the home and reimagine its design for a 21st-century family. It features a fully-redesigned, open kitchen with professional appliances and black, honed granite counters, a master suite with oversized, walk-in closet and spa-like bath, and a full, walk-out basement with an English-style Pub Room for entertaining and space for a home office, fitness center and storage. The three-quarter-acre lot has been professionally landscaped and has multiple gardens, sitting areas and a full-size bocce ball court. There is also a two-story guesthouse complete with a spacious bedroom, full bath, kitchenette, sitting and dining areas, and covered porch.
While entertaining options abound on the property, there is also the opportunity to enjoy Oswego Lake, a private lake reserved exclusively for Lake Oswego residents. A short walk leads to the residence’s easement access and private boat slip.
The most modern visual aspect of the property is, no doubt, the detached garage that sits just steps from the house. This cantilevered, glass-walled building is as stunning as it is functional. Steel beams allow the building to hover over the property’s hillside while the glass walls allow the home to be seen through the garage from the driveway, as views of the architecturally significant home are vitally important. From second-story windows, the garage looks like a piece of gleaming art, and the garage’s living roof blends into the natural landscape below.
The period-authentic lighting, hardware, fixtures, and material combined with the modern colors and amenities has created a truly timeless home. From the incredible entertaining opportunities on the property and the lake to the charming, comfortable spaces meant for relaxation and family time, this is a home that is meant to be enjoyed and loved for generations.
