White House Replica in Oregon on the Market for $3M

This property in Oregon is the perfect place to act like the president you’d like to see in the Oval Office.

In Portland’s Northeast quadrant, a building that looks like 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. in Washington, D.C., has stood as a tribute to the office building for more than 113 years.

The almost 10,000-square-foot building may look like a tourist attraction, but it’s actually a home that’s looking for a new owner.

The house was built in 1911 for lumber baron Robert F. Lytle. It may be a copy, but it’s done with enough style and quality that the National Historic Registry lists it.

β€œThe carefully preserved architectural detail is remarkable,” said Mark Graalum of Cascade Hasson Sotheby’s International Realty, who represents the $3 million listing.

Graalum also said that Lytle loved good carpentry, and “his love of woodwork is still very clear.”

The house has “irreplaceable” quarter-sawn oak floors with mahogany inlays, original mahogany casework, and box-beamed ceilings with crown moldings that have never been painted, according to Mansion Global.

There are also three Venetian glass chandeliers, several murals, gold-leaf crown moldings, and dentil molding all over the compound.

A Twitter user Tom Flowers shared a tweet related to this news-

The Greek Revival-style house has a red-tiled roof and six impressive Corinthian columns that look like they belong on a president’s home, not on a house owned by an unelected person.

There are nine bedrooms, six on the upper level of the main house and three in a carriage house next to it. Each of the nine bedrooms has its own bathroom, and there are three more small bathrooms.

All 12 bathrooms are made of Carrera marble and have plumbing fixtures from that time that were just fixed up in 2018.

The main house also has a formal parlor, a grand lobby, a wine cellar and a walk-in refrigerator. There are also well-kept gardens around the house.

“Adjusted for inflation, the home was and still is the most expensive home built in Portland’s Irvington District,” Graalum told The Post.
