A Formal Mansion in Offbeat Oregon Shoots for Huge Profits

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Portland, Ore.
Price: $5,850,000
The Skinny: While TV audiences might best remember Portland, Ore. as home to a gaggle of hipsters who put birds on everything, there's plenty of real estate in the city more appropriate for the gin & tonic set. Brick steps lead the way to this sprawling white Colonial, set on 1.34 acres in the Portland Heights neighborhood. Built in 1928, the 9,200-square-foot mansion last sold in 1994 for just $270K, meaning the $5.85M asking price should net the owners a handsome profit. The well-maintained main house looks to have been recently renovated, while the manicured grounds and in-ground swimming pool complete the package.
