Situated in Portland's North East Historic Irvington District, Portland's White House was built as a summer home in 1911 by Robert Lytle, a wealthy lumber baron. The house was billed as the most expensive home built in the district for the period. This Greek Revival Mansion boasts a lifestyle of past years with 14 massive columns, circular drive and fountain to greet you. Enjoy the advantages of the neighborhood to jog, walk, and shop tax-free at fabulous boutiques and Lloyd Center.

Portland’s White House was recently purchased and renovated by entrepreneurs Frank Groff and David Krause who count many historic landmarks among the properties they have owned and renovated. Their work has been featured in countless magazines, newspapers including the Los Angeles Times and on HGTV. The pair tapped leading Portland interior design firm Christopher-David to assist in the selection of furnishings that not only serve to highlight the home’s architectural details but with comfort in mind.
