Just Listed: The Mason Residence, designed by Portland-legend Saul Zaik, is one of the best examples of the NW Regional Style, nestled in the heart of Lost Park. Winding mossy curves lead you through a lush secret forest that hosts this Northwest Regional Style masterpiece. This home was designed by Zaik with and for the Mason family and has never been on the market until now! This is a rare opportunity to own this very special home.
This gorgeous 4,000 square foot residence features 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, an office, and multiple living spaces on an almost 1.5 acre lot. The interior features Zaik’s trademark vaulted wood ceilings and walls of glass. The use of natural wood on the ceilings and floors and stone for the hearth are hallmarks of the Northwest Regional style and Zaik was exceptional at placing just the right amount to accompany the natural palette while keeping the design intelligently minimalist.
Zaik made many site visits with the owners to determine the perfect placement on their gently sloped forested lot. The Mason Residence perfectly embraces indoor-outdoor living with walls of glass that wrap around the home, framing the natural landscape and creating the central courtyard to pull light into the center of the home.
The landscape was originally designed by the well-known landscape architect Michael Parker in collaboration with Saul Zaik and the Mason family. The current day entrance and courtyard was designed by Lauren Behern-
Hall of Lilyvilla Gardens.
The career of architect Saul Zaik (1926-2020) spanned decades and yielded an innovative and renowned portfolio. Influenced early in his career by visionary local architects such as Pietro Belluschi, John Yeon, Van Evra Bailey and John Storrs, Zaik was a member of 14th Street Gang, a group of Portland-based practitioners who distinguished themselves by designing cutting-edge Pacific Northwest Modern homes and interiors.
Zaik is primarily known for his single-family residences and vacation homes, including the celebrated Feldman House (1956) and the octagonal Zidell House (1970) which sits atop a 48-foot tall ship’s mast. Zaik also designed homes and buildings at two beloved Oregon landmarks — Sunriver and Salishan — and helped oversee the restoration of the Vista House in the Columbia River Gorge.
