As art is defined as the expression of human creative skill and imagination, the Lakota Residence, set on 10 sloping acres which back to Portland, Oregon’s 5,172-acre Forest Park, is a work of art in every sense. The exterior draws you in with its combination of architectural mastery, privacy and stunning views of the Pacific Northwest’s most famous mountain peaks while the interior’s incredible open space, creative architectural details and use of stone, wood and glass elements keeps its hold on you.
This incredible residence offers 11,399 sq. ft in living space between the main home and its guest quarters. Designed by renowned Architect Ned Vaivoda, the home’s unique “ancient” meets modernist architectural design features extraordinary use of imported stone, hand-chosen wood, steel, and glass. The stunning exterior walls were built using travertine from Italy’s famed Mariotti company. Known for its incredible use of Mariotti travertine, the Getty Center Museum in Los Angeles served as inspiration for the home’s facade. So much so that stonemasons were flown to LA to study the Getty’s travertine and learn the building techniques used. The Lakota Residence stands in good company with the Getty as being the only two structures in the United States using Mariotti split-face travertine in this manner.
The three-level main residence includes an indoor lap pool with steam room; sound-proof music room; gourmet kitchen with professional-grade appliances and wood pizza oven; two-story, open concept living and dining space; an elevator; spacious master bedroom with floor-to-ceiling windows, and much more. This home was built to perfection using only the best commercial-grade material by the best craftsman in the nation. This is a once-in-a-lifetime home perfect for anyone interested in entertaining, art or living in a modern masterpiece.
