Location: Beaverton, Oregon
Price: $400,000

For the relatively low price of $400,000, you could save this adorable circa-1960 Portland house from the ravages of time. Built by local Robert Rummer, who was inspired by midcentury architect Joseph Eichler's renowned low-slung residential designs in California, the post-and-beam house has the signature look of the style Eichler popularized and Rummer evangelized in the Pacific Northwest. Located in the nearby Portland suburb of Beaverton, the 1,690-square-foot, 4-bedroom, 2-bath home has "only had two owners," according to the listing. The third will have their work cut out for them: while the original ceiling beams remain, and nice 1960s-era touches, like a skylit kitchen and glassed-in courtyard have been kept up, wall-to-wall carpet and sad wallpaper will need to be exorcised. But the bones are great! Take a closer look, right this way.
