A peaceful retreat near the city

Mies van der Rohe’s famed Farnsworth House is a one-room glass retreat surrounded by trees, and it’s easy to see that inspiration in this three-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath located in Portland, Oregon. Designed in 1965, the house is the work of Oregon architect William Fletcher, a modernist known for deftly using glass and Pacific Northwest woods in his thoughtful, airy homes.

Fletcher’s 2,708-square-foot house in the Bridlemile neighborhood blends classic style with updated custom touches. Features include Oregon Black Walnut on the cabinets and fireplace mantel, designer tile throughout, and built-in furniture in many rooms. The master suite includes heated marble slab floors and a walk-in closet, and the home’s windows allow for peaceful views onto the trees beyond.

It’s a home filled with natural light and high-quality materials. If you love what you see, 4440 SW Hillside Drive is on the market now for $1,145,000.
