To promote the 1948 Cary Grant and Myrna Loy movie “Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House,” the studio built “dream houses” in various cities around the country. The Portland-area house was built in the Cedar Hills area of Beaverton. As well as a promotional device, it was built using the latest post-war materials and technology but with a traditional design and decor. It’s still a lovely estate on the northwest corner of SW Walker Road and Mayfield Avenue. Read the feature article in The Oregonian, November 6, 1948.
