Architect’s 1914 Craftsman, one of the first Laurelhurst Century Homes, is for sale at $949,000

Home builders arrived on Hazelfern Farm in what would be renamed Portland’s Laurelhurst neighborhood in 1909 with plans to construct newly popular Craftsman bungalows.

The custom houses would line curving streets contoured as carefully as the development’s centerpiece, Laurelhurst Park, which was famously laid out by co-investor and renown landscape architect John Charles Olmsted.

Portland architect A.L. DuPuy was also on the scene. Not only did he design residences for clients in Laurelhurst, but also a 1914 Craftsman for his family. He lived the rest of his life in the handsome house about 200 steps from the park. His widow, Jessie, remained there until 1952.
