Patton Residence was the 1st of 5 projects we designed for Treece & Lambert, developers in Portland, Oregon who focus on finding creative design solutions for challenging building sites.
This site's greatest challenge was the steep driveway and approach, tight parameters for turning and the number and height of retaining walls. It was a deep and narrow lot.
It's positive qualities are how it is situated, quite privately separated by neighbors on either side by existing trees/forest. The view from the home is also quite spectacular, looking south over the undulating hillsides. The entry invites you to soak in the view before heading inside.
The home features a wonderful chef's kitchen open to the great room and rear yard/terrace beyond, and a semi private, formal living and dining room. An office is also situated on this main level. The lower level consists of a 2 car garage, mechanical room, mudroom, and game/media room and full bath. The upper level houses the Master Bedroom suite, a guest bedroom suite and 2 additional bedrooms with a shared bath, and also a laundry room.
