Hawthorne condo description

The Cecilia is a condominium like no other. Situated in the Hawthorne District of Portland, Oregon (five minutes from downtown by car) and only one block from Hawthorne Avenue, it is an elegantly restored, circa 1910 condominium. Relax in the comfortable, beautifully furnished living room, sleep on the best of mattresses with high thread count sheets, cook in the gourmet kitchen (if you can resist the many incredible restaurants within walking distance) and enjoy your morning coffee on the private porch.

After a full day of activities, settle into an Adirondack chair on the porch with a glass of wine and plan your next day in Portland. What will it be? The Pearl District, Japanese Garden, Powell’s bookstore, Sak’s Fifth Avenue, antique shopping, a bicycle ride, a hike on one of the many park trails, the Portland Art Museum, The Saturday Market, a day trip to visit the vineyards? So much to do, so little time.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              Why the Owner Chose Hawthorne:
              While looking for a 'home away from home' in Portland, I fell in love with the Hawthorne/Belmont area-the lovely craftsman style homes, tree-lined streets and the proximity to absolutely everything in Portland. I could walk to downtown and the Saturday market or hop on the bus and be at Powell's bookstore, OMSI, Convention Center or train station in less than 30 minutes. Some of Portland's best restaurants are within a few blocks. There are many great neighborhoods in Portland-but none better than this!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              I love coming 'home' to the Cecilia. There is something special about being here. From the time I open the front door and see the lovely leaded glass window at the top of the stairs, enter through french doors into the foyer, then into the light-filled dining room, I feel at home. After unpacking I head to the porch, collapse into one of the adirondack chairs and plan my Portland time which is always too brief. A quick look in the guestbook to see what the most recent guests had to say always makes me smile. Guests fall in love with the Cecilia as I have. In the short time that I have owned the Cecilia I have been blessed to have guests who are truly the 'cream of the crop'.
