Hawthorne house description

Your fabulous Portland experience begins with our wacky yet elegant turn of the century farmhouse nestled just at the edge of the action in the always happening Hawthorne district. We're an easy walk to New Seasons, a local grocery setting national standards, Fred Meyer for more conventional grocery needs, dozens of restaurants, theaters, and an incredible variety of shops. Two standouts are Apizza Scholls and Porque no? ; nationally acclaimed restaurants only four blocks away. Nearby Mt Tabor park offers terrific urban hiking, while Laurelhurst park designed by the Olmstead brothers (central park) was the first city park to be placed on the national register of historic places.
Our spacious and comfortable 4 bedroom 2400 Sqft house is set in a treed lot with a mature bamboo grove and exuberant flower garden. Quirky artistic touches saturate our house with the oddball beauty you'd expect at the heart of a genuinely exceptional Portland experience.
You'll be transported to a more gracious era stepping into the Master bedroom, with vaulted ceilings, huge skylights, king size bed, plenty of room for yoga, and french doors opening to your large private deck. The captain's room is a fine setting to plan your next voyage, and has a queen size bed and private deck with a great view of the neighborhood. The Adventure room, with a double bed sports a homemade(little kid) climbing wall with a foam landing pad which can be used as a second double bed, and you'll love it's naturally sunny disposition. The Magnolia room on the first floor holds a large TV, a double futon and the highly strung half of an upright piano for you to make your own music.
The upstairs bathroom has a clawfoot tub to soak away the day's exertions, while downstairs there's a shower for those of you on the go. The kitchen is well equipped for the cook, with sharp knives, cuisinart, kitchen aid mixer, stainless cookware, plenty of baking pans and peninsula seating for the peanut gallery.
A designated bike route runs past the house, and you're only three blocks from the bus either on Hawthorne or Belmont. For slightly more adventurous walkers, Belmont and Division streets offer their own array of eating and shopping venues.There's still plenty for you to discover a short bike/bus/drive away: OMSI for the kids, rent a canoe on the Willamette, Oaks Park with rides and a roller rink, the Rose Garden arena, and all downtown has to offer.
With so many amenities within walking distance, our house is ideally situated to be your base for day trips to the beach, Columbia Gorge, Mc Minnville wine country or Mt Hood.

              Our home is an easy walk from all the fabulous restaurants, theaters and unique shops of the legendary Hawthorne district. For more adventurous walkers, the Division st and Belmont shopping districts are about a 20 min. hike. We are on a designated bike route, between the Hawthorne and Belmont bus lines running downtown.

              Laurelhurst park are close at hand, with views, picnicking, sports possibilities, and great play structures for younger kids. The Belmont library a few blocks away is one of the busiest in the nation.

              A quick car/bus/bike trip will take you to OMSI, the Rose Garden arena, canoe rentals on the Willamette river, downtown, or the Alberta & Mississippi arts districts.

              With so many amenities close at hand, our home is an ideal base for day trips to the beach,Columbia Gorge, and Mt Hood.

               

              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 1993

              About: Except for a 3 year stint in Port Townsend, WA, and a year in an apartment while we remodeled, we've lived in this house since 1994. Our house has been a long term labor of love initially born of Keith's college interest in recycling building materials. Kim is an art teacher, responsible for much of the interior decor, while Keith is a design build remodeler, and primary kid wrangler. Seal and Moso, who are in a local Mandarin Immersion program, swim and play soccer with a passion, and will climb just about anything!

              Why Hawthorne:
              We Love our neighborhood, and think you will too! With every trip to New Seasons (7 blocks!) or perhaps the Hawthorne Fish House (4.5 blocks!)or any number of coffee shops within walking distance, you'll understand why! But truly, we think you'll enjoy staying in our place as much as anything else, with antiques from historical luminaries in my family tree, to furniture made from reclaimed bowling lanes and everything in between, there are no dull rooms here!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We delight in so many aspects of our home, but what makes it unique is the imperfect, handcrafted nature of the house itself, as well as many of the items on the walls and the furniture. You might think of it as our Western take on Wabi-sabi, the quintessential Japanese aesthetic.
