About The House
Built in 1911 as a summer home for lumber baron Robert Lytle, Portland’s White House was one of the most expensive homes ever built in the city at that time. The Greek Revival mansion’s striking exterior is distinguished by 14 massive columns, mature trees, landscaped gardens, and a circular driveway with an old-world water fountain. The stunning interior marries the elegant luxury of a bygone era with a modern aesthetic and amenities.
Conveniently located near some of the most heralded restaurants in the nation, Portland’s White House is only minutes from the city’s thriving downtown, including Moda Center, the Pearl District, NW 23rd Avenue, Washington Park, International Rose Garden, Japanese Gardens, Pittock Mansion and Portland Art Museum. Portland’s White House also offers private excursions to the region’s famous Wine Country, the Oregon Coast and the Columbia River Gorge where you will be granted an experience not offered to outsiders.
