About the property

Find economical luxury in our bright, beautifully furnished 1-bedroom apartment in the Irvington Historic District, close to the NE Broadway shopping and dining area, well served by Tri-Met transit, and in a gorgeous neighborhood. You'll like the new construction, modern appliances, super comfy beds, and conveniences like a Keurig coffee maker, WiFi, and two TVs with Comcast cable. We're eager to help you make the most of your stay in Portland.

We offer a delightful stay in our 750 square foot, one-bedroom, one-bath apartment, in the ground floor of our home with many spa-like, deluxe touches. This is all new construction with modern appliances, quality furnishings, fully equipped kitchen and extra comfy beds: A California King bed in the bedroom and a queen-size "comfort sleeper" sofa in the open plan living area. The comfort sleeper sofa is a deluxe offering unlike conventional "sofa beds", making for a spacious accommodation in the unit for up to four people.

In the open plan living area you have a dining table seating 6 so you can entertain friends, plus a fully equipped kitchen with Keurig coffee maker and a selection of K-Cups. To watch the 55" curved screen TV in the living room you can lounge on the "comfort sleeper" sofa or in one of the comfortable chairs. For your convenience there is a washer and dryer as well as an ironing board and iron.

Of course we provide WiFi throughout the unit as well as Comcast cable with many of your favorite channels on both of the TVs. A desk provides a convenient workplace for the business traveler and a surge-protected power strip for your electronic gear.

While not fully ADA compliant, the unit is mobility friendly with the main entrance at sidewalk level and just three steps down into the main living space. The tiled shower has a fold-down seat and grab bars for extra comfort and stability. Our place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers. Unfortunately, we are unable to accept pets.

About Jim Heuer

My husband Robert and I are recently retired and enjoy making our newly created apartment available to guests from around the world. We both are interested in architectural history, literature, and travel.

Jim Heuer purchased this apartment in 1999

Why Jim Heuer chose Irvington

We offer a great combination of easy car or transit access to Portland's vibrant downtown and tourist attractions with the serene atmosphere of a beautifully preserved historic "streetcar neighborhood" with lovely homes and tree-lined streets. The nearby Broadway shopping district means you'll have tons of dining and shopping options just a few minutes walk from your door.

What makes this apartment unique

You have as much privacy as you want with our electronic key-code door entry and completely separate entrance from the street. And we're mobility friendly with only three easy stair steps into the unit. Even the shower is equipped with a handrail and a fold down seat for your comfort.
