The Crown Jewel of NW Mid-Century Architecture
- BUILT IN 1953 -
John Yeon’s Swan House: A beloved mid-century masterpiece nestled perfectly into a 4-acre site of beautifully manicured gardens and Doug Fir forest. This iconic Portland home is rich in history, yet meticulously maintained and carefully restored to satisfy today’s modern style of living. Thoughtful spaces, exquisite detailing and intentional design blend together to create an intangible experience which defies words. Functionality and practical design applications were not overlooked and the current owner has taken measures to respectfully modernize this home by updating systems, and enhancing features that were already there. Walls of glass frame the surrounding landscape like living canvases. The Swan house is a magnificent blend of art, architecture and nature, which both inspires and comforts its guests. This tranquil, retreat-like home is ideally located only a few minutes from Portland’s city center.

Elegant, sophisticated and inspiring with no lack of detail. John Yeon’s design clearly articulates the relationship between indoors and out. Purposeful spaces evoke a sense of calm and peacefulness.
Integral to Yeon’s design style, landscape, nature and site plan are as important as the architecture itself. Rolling green lawn, hardscaping, manicured plant life, trees and extensive Japanese Zen gardens welcome guests and set the stage for what’s to come indoors. Walking trails meander through 3.95 acres of Doug Fir forest and lead you to a Japanese tea hut.
