Year Purchased: 2007

About: In 2007, an architect versed with the historic district, put together a design plan to restore and update this great home. Our goal was to maintain the original character while making the home as energy efficient and livable as possible. Local and State Historic Districts oversaw the renovation process and upon completion, approved the application to the National Registry of Historic Homes. Having lived in the home for a few years, a little extra space was ultimately needed. The Brown House is located directly across the street from the Central Oregon Environmental Center and just two blocks from historic downtown Bend (see map). If the Brown House makes the top of your list, thank you in advance and enjoy your stay!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The original home’s footprint, foundation, picket fence, hardwood floors, and front windows were carefully preserved. Keeping this as the historic shell, the rest of the Brown House was completely renovated using as many green materials as possible. A sampling of these include: a new high efficiency furnace and insulation, marmoleum flooring, no VOC paint, concrete counters, energy efficient insulation in the attic and basement, and a high efficiency hot tub.
