This majestic Queen Anne home was built in 1906 for Gustav E. Freiwald, a prosperous German immigrant, owner of the Star Brewery and real estate speculator. The Freiwald house is a unique blend of Craftsman form and Victorian detail. The house is a Portland designated landmark and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The exterior of the house features an octagonal turret, a wide wrap-around porch with Ionic columns, and a large dormer with arched window and balcony -- all Queen Anne conventions. The home's comfortable elegance extends out into the English-style gardens where a brick pathway passes by fountains, statuary, bird baths, rose gardens and a Gazebo.
The interior of the house features spacious rooms with large windows, the ornate decorative plaster work of English architecture and elements of medieval architecture (such as oriel windows) -- all part of the Craftsman revival under the influence of William Morris and the Arts and Crafts Movement. The interior has been lovingly restored and elegantly decorated with period carpets, wall coverings, draperies and antiques.
