Street of Dreams’ Forest Edge and IdeaBox

Street of Dreams Forest Edge Kitchen IslandWe visited the last two houses at the Street of Dreams last night.  The $1.7M Forest Edge by Elite Development is clearly the dreamiest of the show.  Not a surprise as you could by the IdeaBox ($148k), The Maybeck detached condominium ($549k), and any one of the three detached houses on NW Cresap Lane for less ($774k, $849k, or $869k).  The prices are listed in the Street of Dreams Magazine.

The 5990 SQFT home has a covered pool and indoor gym, theater and wet bar.  The kitchen has a built-in coffee center and a large center island with three centimeter slab and a striking six centimeter edging.

Fortino IdeaBox Kitchen at the 2010 Street of DreamsAt the other end of the spectrum, at least in price, is the Fortino IdeaBox.  This is not your typical double wide.  This was confirmed by Jenny who spent many years in the manufactured home industry before moving into real estate.  The pre-fab home is set up in Arbor Home’s subdivision at NW 95th and NW Cornell as NW Skyline’s trees risked being damaged or damaging the home during delivery.

As mentioned in this morning’s Portland Real Estate Blog’s Facebook update, there was a fire on the deck of Hearth and Home’s Transitions (which is sale pending).  KGW covered the fire.  The damage was isolated to the deck and it was repaired by show opening today.
