Two new homes are advertised for luxury living in the Humboldt neighborhood of north Portland. With 4 bedrooms, 3 and 1-half baths, custom cabinets, granite counters and other amenities like accessory dwelling units with kitchens, the sellers are asking for more than $550,000 each. The construction was made possible by demolishing a modest 1908 single family home and dividing the property into two parcels.
