Lair Hill house description

Nestled in the trees, and just 1 mile from the heart of Portland, our beautiful NW style mid-century home awaits you. It has an elevated, hillside location with fenced, lush landscaped yard and an outdoor gazebo including barbeque, power, and a nice eating area with nothing less than a view of the Willamette River and Mt. Hood. You can sip a gimlet as you lounge on the mahogany patio furniture while your hubby uses the shady gazebo to cook your Bar-B-Que. The yard has manicured grass perfect for little kids and an elevated garden area with birdhouses in nearly every tree. We have a flat, fenced patio that the kid’s ride-on toys can play on.

Did I mention our home is very kid friendly: toys, and child proofed rooms, baby cradle swing, a bouncy chair, and we welcome all your family even your precious pets! We live in a very peaceful neighborhood and have quiet hours starting at 10 p.m. Sorry, absolutely no loud parties allowed, like fraternities or bachelor parties.

You can choose to relax inside and watch the rainfall surround you while you remain dry inside our large sun-lit solarium room. Enjoy the view over a cup of coffee from either location and listen to the sound of the native birds flying eye level from our scenic, perched living room with huge, bright windows overlooking the 100-year old trees and Willamette River below. Our Portland home has a huge living area with an oversized couch, pullout sofa and flat HD flat screen TV (with HBO, very high speed internet) Wi-Fi to make your Skype video calls, and a dining table that seats 8. This SW Hills home is all on one level- bedrooms, kitchen, solarium, laundry, front room to yard, so it is perfect for grandparents and kids.

Our home has the living space effect going on, where the kids can watch TV while you wait on them hand and foot from the kitchen and still all see each other! The kitchen is updated and has all the conveniences of your home! Enjoy our fully stocked kitchen complete with everything you need for preparing meals (banana pancakes, zesty spaghetti, and homemade chocolate chip cookies). Mix up your perfect smoothie in the Kitchen Aid blender. Take advantage of the new appliances and additional bar sitting area for three. The large laundry room has and changing table for the baby, an oversized sink, washer and dryer.

We are located in the center of the Terwilliger Parkway so there are miles of running along the most scenic running path in Portland. There is a children's park is right around the corner, and we have a stroller to escort your bundle of joy to what seems like a private hillside play area. Our neighborhood is surrounded by an urban forest. A Marquam trailhead is just a block away where you can get lost in in the wonder of seeing a native old growth Hemlock stand (dates before Lewis and Clark), or follow the comforting sounds of Downy Woodpeckers, and Spotted Towhees (ask for our map).

Just a mile or so away are some of the best eats in town! We are centrally located between all of Portland’s Farmer's Markets, and lots of coffee shops to choose from and have a number of fabulous local bakeries. Check out Hillsdale’s epicurean food truck park for something special. Elephant’s Deli, down the hill, has freshly made, family sized meals, comfort food casseroles, hippie pizza, luscious biscuits, as well as decadent soups, and unique salads. Place their cuisine in our dishes, and your friends will think you cooked it!

The Master suite is very private, includes a walk-in closet and a full bathroom with shower. The Master has an expansive king sized bed with very nice linens. The 2nd bedroom has a queen-sized bed, a walk in closet and an elevated view of the Portland area. The 3rd bedroom has two twin sized beds and a children’s crib. There is also a full bathroom for the living areas and the 2 bedrooms. Both the 3rd bedroom and sunroom are LOADED with toys, appropriate for kids of all ages.

I am very easy to work with and would love to have you come stay! If you are interested, please send an inquiry or drop me a phone call. Thanks so much for your interest!


NOTE:
If you have additional family/friends coming to town that will need a place to stay close by, below our 3 bedroom house there is a one bedroom, one bath mother-inlaw suite which is also available to rent.

Though we are very close to City Center and have room for large groups, we are located in a very quite neighborhood (10pm quiet hours), and we take pride in our North West style furnishing. Please no fraternities, or loud gatherings. We love our neighbors and diligently work to continue to be an asset to our community.
Because we are kid friendly, please no smoking on property.
