Hawthorne townhome description

*10 percent of net proceeds from each rental of this house is donated to the Northwest Down Syndrome Association. (http://www.nwdsa.org)

If you want a quintessential Portland experience, then this lovely yet comfortable home located in the Hawthorne District - one of Portland's most popular and charming neighborhoods - is for you. The house is perfect for a weekend getaway, a family vacation or a gathering of friends. It is also a thoughtfully appointed and comfortable home-away-from-home for business travelers and others needing an extended stay. The house has 'real beds' for up to 6 persons. Two more can be accommodated using the couch that converts to a firm platform double bed.

You will have an authentic Portland experience as you explore nearby popular eateries and bars, unique boutiques, welcoming coffee houses, neighborhood parks, and live theater, film and music venues -- all within easy walking distance. Portland's own New Seasons Market is a few blocks away on Hawthorne Blvd.

Beyond the Hawthorne District and surrounding neighborhoods, everything Portland has to offer is easily accessible via bicycle or Portland's renowned public transportation system. (You'll be close to two bus lines and, if you have a car, the house has an off-street parking space.)

If you prefer to stay close to home, you will find this house a wonderful place to relax. Original art is throughout. The big window seat is an inviting perch for reading or napping. So is the spacious couch in front of the fireplace. In the evenings, unwind in the paved patio/garden, make dinner in the fully equipped kitchen or on the Weber (charcoal) grill, then watch a favorite movie on the large HDTV. (Every movie you can imagine is available at nearby, world-famous Mike's Movie Madness.)

At day's end, snuggle in to a king-sized bed in the oasis-like master bedroom, or a queen in the 'Pendleton room' or 'Water room.'

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About: I find joy in spending time with friends of all ages, photographing and writing about interesting people and places, collecting stories, cooking ethnic meals, hiking, riding my bike, traveling, and generally reveling in being alive.

                  Why Hawthorne:
                  This house was my home for over four years, during which time I fell head-over-heels in love with the Hawthorne neighborhood and its proximity to so much of what makes Portland amazing. I manage it with the help of my wonderful Portland neighbors.
