A Formal Colonial Mansion in the Portland Heights Neighborhood

Location: Portland, Oregon

Price: $5,850,000

While TV audiences might best remember Portland, Oregon, as home to a gaggle of hipsters who put birds on everything, there's plenty of real estate in the city more appropriate for the gin & tonic set. Brick steps lead the way to this sprawling white Colonial, set on 1.34 acres in the Portland Heights neighborhood. Built in 1928, the 9,200-square-foot mansion last sold in 1994 for just $270,000, meaning the $5,850,000 asking price should net the owners a handsome profit. The well-maintained main house looks to have been recently renovated, while the manicured grounds and in-ground swimming pool complete the package.
