Two blocks from the Pearl District and six blocks from NW 23rd, the A.H. Moore House and More House project is exactly the kind of cool renovation that you've been looking for--not the sterile box of Pearl condos or a sagging NW Craftsmen broken into weird units, this building is everything a renovated classic should be.
We started with a single-family home built in 1905 and owned by A.H. Moore, bank president--until he ruined his bank and had to sell the house to make amends. Turned into a boarding house in 1937, and run as a single-room-occupancy 12-unit apartment until last year, we bought it to return it to its former grandeur. We're a pair of small Portland developers known for our atmospheric buildings, and we closely oversaw total renovations of every system in the building
from plumbing to electric to insulation to soundproofing--and turned the house into a model for small, unique upscale urban housing.
Main-floor two-bedroom features new wood floors, stainless appliances including dishwasher and W/D, marmoleum bathroom floors, tile kitchen backsplashes, super-high ceilings, original pocket doors, Edison-bulb lighting, zonal heating, new siding, welcoming front porch, small private back deck, and way, way more. Envisioned in the steam-punk mode that blends 19th century Victorian styling with post-industrialism, the main house features spacious one- and two-bedroom flats and an attic loft, most with views of The Pearl District, downtown, historic Northwest architecture, Mt. St. Helens, and/or the West Hills. Grow an ironic moustache and start calling this home!
Close to yoga studios (there's one next door), breweries, cafes, bakeries, great restaurants, nightlife, Powell's books, the Crystal Ballroom, Whole Foods, downtown offices, and a thousand other things you want to do in Portland, and with great freeway access for escapes out of town, this unit will fill quickly to someone who applies in advance.
