Property description

There is no better way to experience Portland than to enjoy staying in a fully restored 1924 vintage English home. It's what Portland is all about. Beautiful homes in wonderful neighborhoods just a walk away from shopping, galleries, restaurants, coffee bars and brewpubs. This Alameda home sits in the most sought-after neighborhood in the city and has all the luxury of a fine hotel: a master suite and 2 additional bedrooms - all with queen size beds covered in exquisite linens, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen, a media room, formal living and dining rooms and a lovely patio and garden where you can enjoy the evening sipping cocktails. The large garage can hold your rental car - or you can hop on the city bus just a block away. Downtown Portland is only 10 minutes by car. If it's waterfalls and trails you want, the Columbia Gorge is only 20 minutes drive from the home. Want to see the Oregon Coast and, perhaps, a whale or two? Just go west for 1.5 hours. Come for a weekend, come for a month. Enjoy what it feels like to be a part of the most livable and exciting city on the West Coast.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I moved to Portland from Washington DC when my daughters were young and raised them in this home. It was and is a wonderful place. I am currently the owner and principal broker of a real estate company specializing in vintage and restored homes. Sound like a familiar theme? I am happy to share with you all the reasons we love living here.

Why the Owner Chose Alameda:
I chose to live in Portland because of the lifestyle - active, healthy and relaxing. We say that in Portland 'people work to live - not live to work' and it is totally true.
