Mid Century Modern Home Style Lines

Simplicity + Open Living

Mid Century Modern represents a movement and you’ll find these homes are scattered throughout the entire city but some Portland neighborhoods have higher concentrations. A reflection of the International and Bauhaus movement, the goal was to bring modernism into post war suburbs. These brick and wood clad homes feature open floor plans with generous living spaces on one level.

Big picture windows, modern built-in's, hardwood floors and tall or vaulted ceilings are features you’ll find in many Mid Century Modern. You may even luck into a built-in bar. Kitchens often open up to the dining room with lots of natural light and windows. Untouched mid century modern ranches are highly coveted among Portland homeowners for the mod sensibility and living among a piece of post war history.
