About the Property

3+ Bedrooms, 2 Full Baths, Sleeps up to 8

Light and airy contemporary home welcomes you. This house is nestled among lush gardens and protected forest borders on a quiet dead-end street. Yet, it is only a 5 minute drive to the City Center, Pearl and NW Alphabet District, Zoo, Washington Park and Forest Park. From here, you also have easy access to the Nike Campus, St. Vincent Hospital and the western Metro area.

Another bonus, the house is now outfitted with all Tempur Pedic Supreme medium firm mattresses.

The house is filled with art, reflecting our international travel interest, and is full of visual treats for everyone.

I built this house 20+ years ago. It was designed by an architect who favors the Northwest Style of light, airy, open to nature, but compact and simple in its execution. It is a joy to be in this space.

Beautiful park like setting, quiet and peaceful. Amazingly close to downtown and the favorite places in the Portland area. We constantly receive nice feedback about the ambiance and cleanliness.


PROTECT YOURSELF FROM PHISHERS AND SCAMMERS.
I WILL NEVER ASK FOR A WIRE TRANSFER, OFFER A DISCOUNT FOR PROMPT PAYMENT, OR NOT ACCEPT PHONE CALLS. I LIVE IN PORTLAND AND WILL NEVER OFFER ANOTHER CITY FOR PAYMENT DELIVERY.
IF YOU ARE OFFERED ANY OF THIS, IT IS A SCAM AND PLEASE NOTIFY ME IMMEDIATELY.
