              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1987

              About the owner: Retired after a 30-year career running a public affairs consulting firm and, prior to that, a corporate government affairs director. This followed 20 years as a AP reporter, Congressional aide and director of an environmental organization. Sammye, a native Oregonian, has been a banker and is now a Realtor, covering the metropolitan area. We each have two grown children - hers are boys and mine are girls. With the benefit of more time, I exercise and bicycle for health and pleasure, allowing my waist line to frequently partake of many of Portland's fine dining restaurants. Traveling extensively is more pleasurable than the days of client-driven trips at the drop of a corporate notion. The challenge is getting Sammye away from her clients, but we are working on that. With the exception of eight years in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, I've spent the past 53 years living in Portland and enjoying the great Pacific Northwest.

              Why the Owner Chose Nob Hill:
              I lived in the main floor unit of this 4-plex for 23 years, having purchased the building for its location - central to two of the city's most vibrant neighborhoods and within walking distance of all of downtown with the rest of the city easily accessible by bicycle. The airport is a quick 20 minutes by car, slightly longer by light rail. The neighbors in the house are eclectic, friendly and respectful of privacy. The top floor neighbor has lived here longer than I did.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Surrounded by local boutique shops and the full range of dining - fine food, ethnic, food carts. Caffe Mingo is the city's best Italian restaurant. Paley's Place, a top destination restaurant, is just 4 blocks away. Both are on NW 21st. Fireside is a lively dining spot using local products on a menu of unusual variations on familiar dishes. Kornblatt's Jewish deli serves unmatched lox and bagels. Taste is a wine bar with small plates. And your taste buds will welcome the unusual seafood combinations at Bamboo Sushi and ice cream at Salt and Straw. And in a class by itself is PBJ food cart with amazing variations of nut butters as the base for the sandwiches. All on NW 23rd. For shopping, the City Market for seafood, meat, cheese, produce and wine is just a block away, while Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Safeway and Fred Meyer offer the essential supermarket items. Forest Park, the largest urban wooded area in the United States, is just over 2 miles away.
