Here’s a pleasantly restored midcentury cutie in Portland that’s all low-profile in the front, and multi-story fun in the back. It was built in 1967 and retains period details like a stained glass entryway, brick fireplace, windowed expanses, a beamed great room, and an open floorplan.

A recent renovation seems to have stripped the interiors of much of its character, rendering the walls white and the floors a pale hardwood finish. But this means that the 2,816-square-foot four-bedroom is a blank canvas for the new owner. Still, subtle charm abounds.

The kitchen may need only a light touch. Graphic wallpaper lines the walls, while a retro pattern of white tiles make up the backsplash. Cabinets are also white, accented with brass knobs and topped with a butcher block counter. A breakfast area has the added benefit of sitting beside a fireplace.

Bedrooms are generously sized, and the ground floor becomes its own getaway. Another brick fireplace sets the stage for a cozy den. An additional bedroom and exercise space are also found here.

The property also offers plenty of outdoor entertaining options and a sloping garden site. Located at 2760 SW Garden View Avenue, it’s offered at just under $800,000.
