What an amazing Mid Century modern in Portland for sale. Once in a while I troll the listings in Seattle and Portland for MCM homes. This one is a true gem and respectfully updated. More images after the jump.

Designed in the mid fifties by Architect Frank Shell for a local doctor, this is an impressive example of a mid century ranch home. Large expanses of floor to ceiling glass, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, broad eaves and overhangs and generous use of natural wood in the interior are featured in the open floor plan. Shell established a wonderful indoor/outdoor relationship in all areas of the house resulting in a palpable feeling of connection to the beautiful site.
