Property description

Light and airy contemporary home welcomes you. This house is nestled among lush gardens and protected forest borders on a quiet dead-end street. Yet, it is only a 5 minute drive to the City Center, Pearl and NW Alphabet District, Zoo, Washington Park and Forest Park. From here, you also have easy access to the Nike Campus, St. Vincent Hospital and the western Metro area.

The house is filled with art, reflecting our international travel interest, and is full of visual treats for everyone.

I built this house 20+ years ago. It was designed by an architect who favors the Northwest Style of light, airy, open to nature, but compact and simple in its execution. It is a joy to be in this space.

Beautiful park like setting, quiet and peaceful. Amazingly close to downtown and the favorite places in the Portland area. We constantly receive nice feedback about the ambiance and cleanliness.

IF YOU ARE OFFERED ANY OF THIS, IT IS A SCAM AND PLEASE NOTIFY ME IMMEDIATELY.
