A classic mid century brick home in the heart of some of the best restaurants and night life in Portland. The comfortable home sleeps six with a sunny patio to enjoy, and peaceful yard with a giant Deodora cedar tree.
You’ll be located at the junction of 28th and Belmont on a picturesque residential street, with easy access to the Belmont district, 28th Avenue “Restaurant Row”, Burnside, Hawthorne and Division St/Clinton districts. If you are comfortable walking, cycling, and taking the bus you don’t need a car. The bus 15 is a block away, and takes you downtown, and to the Pearl District and NW 23rd, and connects with the light rail system (MAX), in the other direction it takes you to Mt Tabor Park. It takes about 45 minutes to walk the 2.2 miles to downtown’s Pioneer Courthouse Square along a pleasant route. Laurelhurst Park and Colonial Summers Park are each within 10 blocks. Whole Foods, Zupans, and Safeway grocery stores are all within 10 blocks.
The specifics ... this mid century duplex was designed by the architect who lived next door, for his son. The units are side by side, and sited on a peaceful 14,000 sq ft lot. The large yard provides a peaceful retreat in the heart of the city. The current owners live in the other half of the duplex, and are happy to be a resource for information and advice on your stay in Portland. The home is approximately 1000 sq ft with 2 bedrooms on the main floor, one has a queen sized bed, the other a double. Upstairs is a bedroom with 2 twin sized beds. The bathroom is on the main floor opposite the bedrooms, and at the base of the stairs from the upstairs bedroom. The main floor has hardwoods throughout. The living room has a couch and several chairs and opens to a sunny front porch sitting area. The dining room has a table that sits six. There is a flat screen TV with network and internet TV. A stereo system hooks to your computer or MP3 player. WiFi is available. There’s a full kitchen with all the basics to cook for your self but with all the fun food choices in walking distance you’ll be tempted to eat out. The basement provides bike storage, and a shared laundry area. There is central gas forced air heat. No air conditioning, but window ventilation keeps the home comfortable on all but a few days of the year.

This property is a true gem. The interior is clean and filled with light. The yard is lush and well-kept. The neighborhood is filled with fantastic cafes and interesting shops. There are great parks nearby for a jog among the trees or a trip to the playground with kids. It's easy to navigate the local neighborhood and the larger city by public transportation. The owners are a delight. My only sadness is that once others discover this property, it won't be available for us the next time we come to Portland! Truthfully, I cannot recommend this property highly enough.

The neighborhood is also fantastic with great restaurants, shopping, bars, and playgrounds all within walking distance. all in all a superb experience.

About the owner: Matt grew up in Portland, and after traveling and exploring, we are so happy to be back!
Why the Owner Chose Buckman:
This is a great spot to live, and to appreciate the best of what Portland has to offer. Once we are home at the end of the work day we can ditch our cars and walk to everything we need, great grocery shopping, seasonal farmers markets, parks, restaurants, bakeries and dessert spots, bars, and nightlife. There is more to do in our neighborhood than we have time to enjoy.
