About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our quiet and beautiful 1909 cottage home offers privacy and comfort for your perfect getaway. We have meticulously renovated, with an eye to balance the charm of the original house and the conveniences of a modern home. The result is a stunning, well lit space, a bedroom featuring a 100 year-old wood ceiling and french doors opening to a garden and deck, a spa-like bathroom with extra deep 6' tub beside a custom glass and tile shower enclosure, and an open plan kitchen/living area, well-outfitted and ready to take advantage of Portland's local and organic food culture. We also offer car charging for guests driving electric cars, with the 40A Tesla charger in our driveway.

Nestled in the heart of the vibrant Alberta Arts neighborhood, you are walking distance to some of Portland's best restaurants (Beast, Ciao Vito, Pine State, Expatriate, Bernie's, Yakuza, Bollywood Theater, Autentica, DOC, La Bonita, Bella Faccia and more), wine (Everyday Wine, Bin21), coffee houses (Barista, Caffe Vita, Extracto), bakeries and breakfast joints (Big Egg, Random Order, Le Petit Provence, Back to Eden), boutiques featuring clothing, shoes, books, music, chocolates, home furnishings and lighting, and of course, the many art galleries and the monthly Last Thursday art walk and street fair. Access to two major transit lines within one block of the cottage and easy off-street parking make visiting the rest of Portland simple as well.

The home features sustainable bamboo floors, custom ironwork details produced by the artisan-owners, unusual antique furnishings, as well as 42' flat panel TV, free wireless broadband, spacious full size kitchen with gas range, dishwasher, and private laundry facility. The queen bed makes the space best suited for one or two adults, but the addition of a pack'n'play or air mattress can accomodate children or friends.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Portland is our kind of town. After fleeing the urban sprawl of California over a decade ago, we made a new life in PDX for ourselves and our 2 kids. He's a blacksmith. She's a Certified Athletic Trainer. Together, we own and manage a few rental properties and remodel our home. When the small, cute house next door went up for sale, we just couldn't pass it up. We also like cheese.
