Property description

The perfect house for family or friends, centrally located in the perfect Portland neighborhood. Diverse, rich in culture, excellent food and drink, on transit lines and totally walkable, you won't even need a car here...but we have off-street parking if you do.

You may not host events including more than twelve people here.

Awesome clean beds and pillows, and a clean, comfortable, well appointed, great-smelling house in a vibrant neighborhood..with central air! We LOVE to make our guests have the vacation or short term stay they want.

We may negotiate rates if certain dates are not booked, or for a smaller party (2-4).

This is an urban neighborhood. It's diverse. Most, but not all, of the houses have been restored. You may encounter a panhandler or people with petitions. If these things alarm you, it's not for you. You may want to look in Irvington or in the suburbs. For us, there's everything to love about the Alberta Arts district. Creative and cool, friendly neighbors, fabulous food, flat, walkable, and bikeable. We have Alberta's 'Last Thursday': the divine arts fair on the last Thursday of every month, when they close the whole street and the artsy spirit of PDX is in full bloom... Fall in love with Portland here.

We restored this 1970's ranch in 2012 to give it a geometric, clean, inviting style. Everything in it is new: furniture and appliances (except the fridge). Quiet, solid bamboo floors run throughout the house, and every appliance is Energy Star. The front porch is a great place to watch the neighborhood walk by, and the big back yard has a beautiful gazebo.

We have free parking (up to three cars can fit on the driveway, but you'd better know who's leaving first : ) Free wifi. Dish Network. Netflix. Fully equipped kitchen with such staples as sugar, spices, and oil, cleaning supplies, paper towels, napkins. A private code for each party in the internet-controlled locks. Two bikes with helmets and locks. A charcoal barbecue grill.
It's SUPER important that you realize how much we value the quiet and peace of our neighbors. Quiet hours are 10PM to 8AM.

Public transit is just half a block away!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Hi, I'm Amy. We've been in Oregon 17 years and we love it! We live in a suburb just south of Portland and have two teenaged sons. We bought this house in 2011, gutted it, outfitted it with the greenest solutions we could (solid bamboo floors with a quiet layer of insulation underneath, Energy Star heat and A/C, high efficiency appliances. We love to spend the night here too!

Why the Owner Chose Alberta Arts District:
If you know Portland, you know this is the spot. It's diverse, colorful, safe, friendly and fun. You can walk to either corner in the morning for an awesome cup from Fuel Cafe or Extracto, spend a great day in and around Portland, and at night, amble home from the Tin Shed or any number of other establishments within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We chose this property for its location. The house is not grand, or deluxe, but it is super inviting with its clean lines and beautiful finishes in the kitchen. We followed that aesthetic in remodeling the front patio with geometric blue stone path and patio, and a trellis. The back yard is now landscaped with a covered patio.
