The Sparrow

Triplex with bountiful built-ins

Built in 1910, this single-family home was converted into a duplex with an extra studio space in the 1940s. When we purchased the property, these rental units had existing tenants in place, but the home needed some serious TLC. So, our team worked with the seller and the residents to find win-win solutions – helping some of the tenants find new housing so that we could update and improve the apartments.

When we remodeled this triplex, we gave the whole property a facelift with updated kitchens and bathrooms while maintaining as many original features as possible. We refinished the hardwood floors and kept all the amazing built-ins throughout, including a unique secretary desk. With this project, we were able to preserve historic Portland charm while adding value to an investment property.
