At the end of a long, curved road high above the city in Portland’s beloved Forest Park, the Royal residence is perched elegantly at the coveted ecotone of forest and town along Royal Boulevard. Enter through a dramatic foyer with clerestory windows into the main living area, which features white oak floors with dark walnut inlay borders, a substantial wood-burning hearth, and a kitchen lined with custom-designed, handcrafted oak cabinetry. Floor-to-ceiling glass and wall-to-wall sliding doors seamlessly extend into the forest scape, giving way to expansive terraces and unobstructed views of the natural flora cascading down to the valley floor.
Royal is a rare gem set into forested acreage less than 500 feet from the renowned Wildwood Trail, boasting sweeping exterior terraces and balconies overlooking a lush wooded expanse. The home, designed and developed by William / Kaven Architecture, sits on one of nine parcels owned by the studio and associated partners. The design includes:
- Four bedrooms.
- Three-and-a-half baths.
- Common areas with open floor plans.
- An oversized garage.
