about the property

A Portland Landmark

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Embassy has been called "Northwest Portland's address of distinction." Built in 1923, the building was constructed from the finest materials by quality craftsmen of the era. Looking at the Embassy, one cannot help being drawn to its presence and character, wondering about the joys of those who have lived within its walls throughout the past.
Vintage Craftsmanship

Step into the past to surround yourself with the grand charm of an earlier era. In preserving The Embassy, modern-day craftsmen have rejuvenated the building's fine architectural details, while modernizing for better livability. New kitchens have been added that live in tandem with the building's historic features, and quality wood windows that replicate the building's original windows were installed. The new windows allow light to pour in while maintaining a very comfortable living climate. Living spaces offer hardwood floors, beautiful doorway and window moldings, large walk-in closets and baths with exquisite terrazzo floors. In most units, a French paned door is pushed to open a pivoting wall which is actually a built-in Murphy bed giving residents more space and flexibility. This is a treasure of an earlier time not found in other area residential buildings.
