The Cora Bryant Wheeler House, also known as the Mrs. Coleman H. Wheeler House, is a historic house located in Portland, Oregon, United States. Architect A. E. Doyle designed this 1923 Arts and Crafts house to take full advantage of its prominent and demanding ridgetop location. Its complex lines and massing articulating the shape of the hill, and notably including a significant amount of lumber from the Wheelers' own timberlands in the Coast Range, the Wheeler House became an important later addition to the portfolio that made Doyle one of Portland's leading architects. Junior partner Pietro Belluschi and apprentice Richard Sundeleaf, each of whom later became a significant architect in his own right, provided on-site construction supervision.[2] The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[3]
