I don’t know if it’s because summer’s here, but I am having a love affair with homes with porch swings lately. And this home has both a porch swing and an abundance of original Craftsman charm: woodwork on woodwork, leaded glass, and original hardwood flooring. Take a look at this vintage Portland gem.

This charming Craftsman is a love letter to the early 20th-century style of residential architecture in which it was built—complete with an abundance of original woodwork and wainscoting, leaded glass and picture rail. The home conveys coziness and is enough of a blank slate for a new owner to add in ample personal style and customization. Plus, it’s located in a vibrant and walkable neighborhood. Truly, Portland living at its best.
