Imagine a place filled with history, with family, with guests and especially with opportunity. A place where a Portland version of The Great Gatsby would host his glittering parties enhanced with all the amenities of 2016. Imagine a place where family and friends can gather that is also a place for big parties, fundraisers and meetings. And don't forget to those imaginings to include a place to perfect your three-point shot.

That very special place is here in Portland, sitting above the city in the West Hills. It is a home that spans over 20,000 sq. feet standing on two acres of land with an incredible view of downtown Portland, Mt. Ranier, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Adams. With ten bedrooms, six with its own en suite bath, three kitchens - including one specifically for catering, an indoor pool and an indoor half-court basketball court that doubles as a ballroom, this home is an estate fit for the modern family.

For all its modern amenities, this is a place rooted in history. The traditionally-styled Tudor Revival estate was designed by Portland architect Roscoe De Leur Hemenway in 1929. Known for his close attention to detailed finishes, Hemenway was one of the best-known residential architects of his time. Its steeply-pitched roofs, dormer windows and jettied second floor appealed to the home's first owner, Portland real estate developer and philanthropist, Harry Mittleman.

In 2008, the previous owner built an extensive $7 million addition to the home, including the addition of the basketball court/ballroom and outdoor pool building. Over the past year, every element of this home has been inspected, repaired and improved. Every inch, both inside and out, has been painted, acres of oak hardwood floors have been striped and refinished and every strip of carpet is brand new. This place has been reborn and is ready to be the setting for new stories and to continue its role in Portland's history.

Cedar shingles and patinaed copper gutters and downspouts frame the brick entrance to the home. Inside the foyer, oak hardwood floors gleam and hand-carved walnut acorns decorate the bannister that leads upstairs. To the right of the foyer is an absolutely incredible kitchen. Crisp white cabinets - some from the original construction complete with poultry wire inserts - and a white subway tile backsplash are completely in keeping with the original 1930s vibe. A gleaming stainless steel six-burner Viking stove with built-in griddle and grill and two full-sized ovens sits under a gorgeous oversized hood. Quartz counters and a huge island with a stainless steel farmhouse sink anchor the kitchen. A beautiful wood-burning fireplace with a carved stone mantle keeps the space cozy and provides a focal point to an eating or sitting area. A sunlit butler's pantry includes stainless steel counters and original thick glass shelves for display. A stainless steel Bosch dishwasher and SubZero side-by-side refrigerator and freezer complete the main kitchen area. Across the room, the wet bar includes a SubZero wine refrigerator. Just off this side of the kitchen is a curved breakfast nook that overlooks the back yard and features the view of Portland and the mountains beyond that is shared by all the rooms across the back of the home. A careful eye can even spot the inhabitants of the brand new elephant habitat at the Oregon Zoo as they roam below.

The formal dining room sits next to the kitchen. Original cherry paneling lines three walls with the fourth being a wall of windows showcasing the view. Next door, the main library has a wood-burning fireplace with a beautiful walnut mantle. Flowing through to the living room, coffered ceilings with subtle backlighting add a traditional dimension to the room. Just off the living room and spanning the front of the home is the window-lined sunroom. This serves at the connection point between the original home and the addition. What was originally a carriage entrance or porte-cochere at the end of the home is now enclosed with beautiful double carriage doors and a stone floor creating a secondary entrance. Through the carriage entrance is the large game room with a rustic stone fireplace and a thick cedar mantle, this room is perfect for relaxing and watching a movie or hanging out with family. The billiards room is connected through a set of french doors. Just outside is an incredibly cute little playhouse that has heat, electricity and cable. The inside is paneled with bead board and is painted light pink, perfect for a little princess.

Downstairs on the new end of the home is the basketball court and ballroom. Built on a floating oak floor, the basketball court doubles as a ballroom complete with nine removable chandeliers. Knotty pine lines the walls and the daylight lot provides the room with plenty of windows and doors to the patio outside. Just off the court are this and hers bathrooms and a caterers kitchen with a commercial dishwasher, pantry and storage space.

Upstairs, above the game room and billiards room, are the eight bedrooms that span the whole second floor of the home. Each of the spacious bedrooms includes an en suite bath and walk-in closet. The bathrooms have all been recently renovated and feature bright white subway tile and black and white tile floors. Each of the bedrooms has unique elements that give them their own subtle personality. One particularly special bedroom is wallpapered in a black and white toile pattern and has a Juliette balcony that overlooks the front drive. And this room's en suite bath features a gorgeous claw foot soaking tub. The huge upstairs laundry room is conveniently located among the bedrooms and includes two sets of washers and dryers, a sink and built-in shelving.

The master suite would have easily met with Jay Gatsby's approval. The suite includes his and hers closets, dressing areas and separate baths. The mens closet is paneled in masculine dark wood and features a green granite-topped island dresser and custom-designed clothes storage. The mens bath is also wood paneled with a frameless shower and gold fixtures. The ladies bath is crisp white with a lovely balcony and a city view. The bedroom itself is large and light-filled and includes a large marble fireplace with cherubs sculpted in the corbels that support the mantle.

The second floor also includes the perfect room for a nursery with french doors and enough space for all the baby essentials. A secondary laundry room is conveniently located nearby. A huge tv room and mirror-lined ballet or exercise room sit at the far end the second floor just above the garage. A cozy cherry-paneled second library completes the second floor.

Downstairs, under the original wing of the house is a large media/family room with a brick fireplace and doors that open to the patio and back yard. Additionally, this level has a full apartment, perfect for a nanny. The brightly lit apartment includes a kitchen with a brightly tiled hood and leaded glass cabinets, a sitting room and a bedroom with full bath.

Next door is the 2,000 sq. foot pool house and outdoor patio. Soaring ceilings and A-frame beams create a lodge-like feeling for the full-sized black-bottom pool and hot tub. Motorized windows on the roof and multiple ceiling fans provide ample airflow, preventing the space from feeling humid, even on hot days. The soap stone wet bar includes a refrigerator, ice maker and dishwasher making entertaining easy.

While only 7 minutes from downtown Portland, this gated estate feels secluded and set apart in both location and time. With a perfect blend of old world sophistication and casual comfort, this home is suited to the needs of an active modern family. It's time to fill this place with people and add more chapters to its story and the story of Portland.
