              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2012

              About the owner: Native Oregonian from this area. Professionally educated in Oregon and abroad but returned to Salem in 1994. Live in the Bush Park neighborhood 5 blocks away and love this area.

              Why the Owner Chose Salem:
              We live and work in this very neighborhood and know first hand how convenient and desirable a location it is.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Location. Location. Location. The five star reviews speak for themselves, but the convenience to downtown Salem and the central location in the Willamette Valley make this property ideal for any visit to this beautiful Oregon. Excellent base for trips to the Stunning Oregon Coast, the beautiful Oregon Wine Country, or day hiking in Silver Falls State Park. Close to great restaurants, parks and quaint neighborhoods in Fairmont Hills, Bushes Pasture Park and downtown Salem.
