Those Places Thursday: Two More Homes Designed by Ewald T. Pape

A recent e-mail from a reader of this blog had me looking at more of the work of my architect relative Ewald Theodore Pape (1894-1976) in Portland, Oregon.  Portland did a Historic Resources Inventory in 1984, which lists thirteen properties designed by Pape.  I've written about some of the apartments, former hotel, and houses he designed before, but here are two more from the inventory that I am able to illustrate thanks to Bill Natkin, who operates the HistoricHomes - Portland website, who graciously gave me permission to use these photographs:

The house pictured in the photo above is at 257 SW Marconi Avenue in the Arlington Heights neighborhood of Portland, and overlooks the beautiful Washington Park.  Built in 1927, this 2,651 square foot Mediterranean-style house has three bedrooms and three baths, and last sold for $639,050 in November 2000. It was originally owned by Thomas Mahoney, an Oregon State Senator in the 1940s.  Some of its architectural features include clay tile hip, gable, and pent roofs: a tower; a balconet; and stuccoed walls.  An evening view of the home is here (or here).

The house pictured below is at 3615 E. Burnside Street in the Laurelhurst neighborhood.  This large English Cottage Revival style house was built in 1926, and features a steeply pitched hip roof with curvilinear gables forming hoods over the windows, and leaded glass in some of those.  It has four bedrooms, three-plus bathrooms, is 4,731 square feet, and last sold for $625,000 in February 2012.
