Welcome to the Bader House and Garden, a 1923 Tudor Revival home designed by DeYoung and Roald Architects of Portland for Louis J. Bader. The home was added to the National Registry of Historic Places in 1989. Previous residents have had the honor and responsibility of being stewards of time, making tasteful and discreet restorations and updates to the home. They often capitalized on original elements, such as repurposing the glass closet doors in the owner’s suite from the original dining room doors and adding the corbels under the kitchen island from the repurposed glass breakfast nook enclosure. You’ll feel like you are walking through history as you ascend the grand staircase and pass ornate wainscoting, illuminated by the multi-paned leaded windows. Even retrieving the mail is a subtle memory of the past, with the mailbox that was converted from the original outdoor cooling box on the side porch. Echoes of lively discussions and thousands of pages being turned throughout the decades are forever trapped in the rich wood of the parlor. Warm firelight creates a soft glow while sipping your favorite cocktail or cozying up on the sofa. In the summer open the doors to the outdoor seating area and enjoy the sounds of impromptu concerts from the park. The most spectacular room in the home is the ballroom, located on the lower level. Sitting in the ballroom, you can almost hear the sound of music playing as guests waltz across the floor. Warm waves of air fill the room from the self-circulating fireplace. A state-of-the-art fixture in 1923, it remains an amazing and fascinating component a century later. The wine storage area comes complete with a hidden bottle passthrough—a delicate reminder of prohibition-era entertaining. Designed by landscape architect George Otten, the inspiring garden is fit for a wedding. The gazebo that still stands there was purportedly built for the wedding of the owner’s daughter, generations ago. Walking across the original stone path and past the year-round blooms, the garden offers endless possibilities. Sit around a fire with friends, dine al fresco, simply enjoy the serenity offered by nature. Every day in the Bader House and Garden is a gift of rich history and detailed craftsmanship that can only be found in a genuine historic home. There is a century of stories to be told here… and years of history yet to be made.
