Sellwood-Moreland apartment description

Sellwood Sky is our sun bright upstairs one bedroom apartment:

Entrance to the apartment is through a glass-window enclosed tower with a spiral staircase that takes you to the Sellwood Sky apartment: First up, the sun room. Four skylights, four clerestory windows, and several more tall windows to keep any winter blahs away.

The apartment has an open space layout with interior windows sharing light throughout. The bedroom has a comfortable queen size bed and bookshelves filled with lots to read. There is an interior window between the bedroom and the den which is fitted with a slatted shade for privacy. The kitchen, bathroom and bedroom all have skylights. The bedroom is carpeted for comfort; kitchen and den have wood floors, and the sun room has a smooth brick floor. The galley kitchen is small, but set up for the gourmet cook. We love to cook when we are on the road. If you share our enthusiasm for cooking, we want to be sure you have what you need in the kitchen. PNW local grocer, New Seasons, is a short walk away.

Throughout the Sellwood Sky, you will find all the comforts of home. Extra guests are welcome, but please be aware this is not a party house. One of the charms of the Sellwood Sky is how quiet it is. It is the quiet comfort of the apartment that has made it a perfect artist/writers retreat for past guests. We have a futon in the sun room and provide an inflatable full sized mattress for extra quests.

Sellwood Sky has a large outside deck with stairs that lead to a roof patio where you can look over the entire neighborhood or just relax in a nice wooden Adirondack chair. Secure indoor bike parking is available on the bottom floor of the 'glass tower'. We can accommodate up to four average sized bikes. Additional bikes can be locked behind our private front fence. We are at the trail head of the Springwater Corridor, one of Portland’s major bike/pedestrian travel ways.

There is ample street parking. Want a trip through wine country (to the beach, to the mountains) but you are without a car? Zipcar rental is accessible within a few blocks.

Getting around: A bus stop is one block away. Downtown Portland is a ten minute drive, and we are a five minute drive to the OHSU tram. Reed College is only a 5 minute trip. Biking the Springwater Corridor to downtown will take just minutes.

Neighborhood Amenities, all within walking distance:
Seasonal rides at Oaks Park, the country’s oldest continuously active amusement park. Shopping and antiquing on 13th Street, also known as Antique Row. Four coffee shops and two tea shops, including our favorite coffee hangout - Blue Kangaroo. Restaurants include Italian, Thai, Vietnamese, Asian, Greek, Salvadoran, Mexican, Sushi, Burgers and Fries, and of course, the very Portlandia pod of Food Carts! We have a branch of the PNW artisan bakery Grand Central Baking, they bake some of the best bread in town and offer take home u-bake it as well.

Oddities: Sit where President Kennedy sat! The Bins! Sherrett (Share It) Square! An amusement park! Tiny, tiny church (weddings and events only)! Weird candy house!

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We are Doug and Tracey, booksellers who enjoy visiting bookstores and libraries all over the world. When we travel, we always stay in vacation rentals. We are happy to be able to share our upstairs sunlight filled apartment with fellow travelers.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          The Sellwood neighborhood embodies the best Portland has to offer, all in a DIY quirky package. We fell in love with our skylight covered house and were further charmed when we found Sherrett (Share It) Square was a scant block away. Sellwood combines the trendiness of antique and boutique shopping/dining with a livable quiet residential area.
