The Percy A. Smith House is a romantic Old World style hunting lodge on nearly 3 acres of significant gardens in the heart of Dunthorpe. Built in 1922 and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this timeless estate has been owned and cherished by only two families over the past 101 years. Many of the artisan details were created by craftsmen with the finest lumber from Mr. Smith's ship building and furniture making companies: elaborately carved beams and doors, forged iron hardware, solid oak posts, wall panels and stylized corbels. The grand living room is centered by a carved stone fireplace and features teak plank floors, stained & leaded glass windows and soaring exposed timber trusses. A secret staircase leads to the underground movie theater, wine cellar and prohibition era party room. The formal dining room has cut stone walls and unique walnut and teak checkerboard floors. A richly appointed library is located across from a main floor en suite bedroom. The upper level has a primary bedroom suite, 2 additional bedrooms, a balcony overlooking the living room and a delightful bonus space. Views of Mt. Hood are enjoyed from both the dining room and primary bedroom suite. The landscape, known as Josslyn Garden, is listed as a resource with The Archives of American Gardens at the Smithsonian and recognized for its outstanding design that integrates a reflection pond, rose gardens, expansive bluestone patios & a Japanese garden with meditative koi pond. There is even a soccer field area surrounded by perennials and fruit trees. This peaceful and very private setting has two gated entrances and plentiful guest parking. Architecturally compatible additions were constructed between 1998-2000 and included an over sized detached garage with 610 sf guest quarters above along with a Tuscany garden room. Served by Riverdale Schools, this is a magical home designed to create a happy childhood for Percy Smith's family and built to last a lifetime.
