South Hillsboro and the Street of Dreams

South Hillsboro and the Street of Dreams

I was able to find a spare couple of hours to stop by the Street of Dreams on Realtor Day. It was a super comfortable 1258 degrees outside that day...

It just happens to be in Hillsboro this year, and there is a very good reason for that location.

What was once a large 1400 acre tract of farmland (known as the historic Ladd-Reed farm) is now "South Hillsboro", the largest master planned development in Oregon history.

Portland Architect Spotlight - Van Evera Bailey

As of the time that I'm writing this, the above home built in 1956 is newly listed for sale at a very reasonable $4,098,000. That may seem like a lot, but if you factor in the one-of-a-kind view, the one-of-a-kind lot, and the one-of-a-kind home, it's almost a bargain.

Okay, the word "bargain" might be stretching it, but you know what I mean. Contact me if you'd like to take a look.

This home was designed by Van Evera Bailey, a local Oregon architect that California mid-century modern buffs may recognize.
