Property description

This charming bungalow has everything you need for your stay in Portland. Built in 1929, it features 2 true bedrooms, stocked kitchen (with the basics), dining room, living room and bathroom. Laundry facilities are in the basement along with a desk, additional sitting area and futon. Only 2 blocks to a grocery store, bank, coffee shop and more, this house is part of a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. It is the ideal accommodation for the traveler who wants to be close to the action, but not stay in the middle of it.

I love this particular neighborhood because it is a self-contained neighborhood - everything you need is within a 10 block walking radius, yet it is only a 7 minute drive or 20 minute bike ride to downtown. There are many unique restaurants, ranging from casual dining to upscale and the neighborhood is full of mom and pop shops. The proximity to nature is also a bonus. Several times a week, I walk my dog through the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge and down to the river to play fetch and frolic on the sand. It's not unusual to see a bald eagle on the way and there is fabulous bird watching nearby.

For your convenience, there is wireless Internet at the house as well as an on-site computer for those of you who want to leave yours at home. Some ideas and activities for you to think about:

Summer activities: Sellwood pool, Oaks Bottom Amusement Park, Westmoreland Farmer's Market, Concerts in the Park, Movies in the Park, music festivals, and more!

Year Round Portland Activities: First Thursday in the Pearl, Last Thursday on Alberta, OMSI, Portland Art Museum, Portland Center State, Artist Repertory Theater, biking down the Springwater Trail, shopping on Hawthorne Street and Sellwood's Antique Row, brewer festivals, and lots more!

Car: Not Necessary

The Westmoreland/Sellwood neighborhood has become increasingly popular in the past few years - others have finally discovered our hideaway! We have great restaurants, shops, farmer's market and are only steps away from the river and the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge which is known for birdwatching.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I moved to Portland in 2005 after living in San Francisco for nearly 10 years. I was drawn to Portland because it has the amenities of a big city, but feels like a small town. It has easy access to mountains as well as to beaches on the coast. (It is only about a 90 minute drive to either.)

Why the Owner Chose Sellwood-Moreland:
I love this particular neighborhood because it is a self-contained neighborhood - everything you need is within a 10 block walking radius, yet it is only a 7 minute drive or 20 minute bike ride to downtown. There are many unique restaurants, ranging from casual dining to upscale and the neighborhood is full of mom and pop shops. The proximity to nature is also a bonus. Several times a week, I walk my dog through the Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge and down to the river to play fetch and frolic on the sand. It's not unusual to see a bald eagle and there is fabulous bird watching nearby. This house was my primary residence for many years and in 2009, I started renting the house while I was out of town so that other people could enjoy it. Starting in 2014, I now rent the house full time - I truly enjoy meeting new people and introducing them to our wonderful neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
When at the Westmoreland Vacation Home, you will appreciate the charm of yesteryear. I have done my best to restore and keep original features intact such as the picture moldings, glass doorknobs, hardwood floors, French doors, and fun kitchen features like tile work, a flour bin and cabinets and shelving originally built to cool pies and baked goods.
