About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 8 comfortably.

Every member of your family will delight in this uniquely charming 3+ bedroom bungle retreat with large, new outdoor pool, spa, water feature and landscaped gardens. This historic home sits on a one-acre, fully-fenced wooded lot offering privacy and plenty of opportunity to relax or entertain both indoors and out.

Our 3400 square foot home features: a full kitchen with modern, stainless steel appliances, pantry and 1/2 bath; a large comfortable living room with fireplace, piano, modern conversation style sofa and leather chairs and a row of bay windows that extend the full length of the room allowing for plenty of natural light and views of the various gardens, several decks and patios; a spacious, open dining room with fireplace and formal dining set that will seat up to 12 people; a separate den/tv room with leather chaise sofa that can be used as additional sleeping quarters; and an office with wifi (available throughout home and poolside) and 1/2 bath.

The second story of our home features three large bedrooms and two baths. The recently renovated master suite is comfortable, ultra-stylish and very well-appointed with king bed, gas fireplace, large flat screen tv, refrigerated drawers, loveseat sofa and ottoman. The stunning master bath includes a large, two-person shower with dual shower heads and skylight, twin vanity sinks and separate toilet room. Dark wood cabinetry, modern glass and marble tile along with heated bath floors add the kind of romantic elegance and sophistication found only in the finest upscale resorts and hotels. Once settled, you may never want to leave this suite! There are two other guest bedrooms on the second floor, one with a queen bed and the other with a queen bed and roll-out sofa that can serve as an additional queen bed. The guest bedrooms share a full bathroom.

While this unique property offers all the required indoor creature comforts, its the outside grounds that are the real star attraction. The property is encircled by 100+ year firs, oaks and giant sequoias. A gated entrance opens to a circled drive that passes by a budding orchard, berry patch, vegetable and herb garden. The drive includes a basketball court and an area for ping-pong (folded table easily wheels from the garage to the drive). An elevated front porch looks over the manicured front yard and garden beds offering a quiet retreat for morning coffee or afternoon reading. The front yard yields to a private stone patio where you can enjoy quiet meals and conversation around a classic teak table appointed with high back wicker chairs. This charming outdoor patio is perched just above the the pool area and beside a large magnolia tree providing both shaded and unobstructed views along with the calming sound of a bubbling stone water feature. The backyard pool is 40'L x 16'W and includes an inset spa that seats 6 comfortably. There is a pergola at one end of the pool with comfy outdoor furniture along with plenty of other outdoor seating and longing options around the deck area. A glass fence runs along the length of the pool which opens up the view to a downward slopping expanse of giant oak tress extending to the Waverly Country Club and the Willamette River.

Keywords: Unique, two-story bungalow, one-acre wooded yard with gardens, completely fenced and very private, outdoor pool and spa, 3+ bedrooms, gorgeous master suite with fireplace and dual shower, ideal family vacation home and property, updated kitchen, close to restaurants, shopping, bike trails and downtown, views of historic Waverly Country Club and the Willamette River.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I stayed here in August - it very comfortably slept 8 of us, and we had room for all at the table when we had a couple of dinners with extended family and friends. Everything was perfect - the house, the pool, the grounds. The management was very responsive when we had any issues. We would love to stay here again if we came back to Portland!

Loved our stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful week at the bungalow; everything was even better than on the website! The heated pool and spa were a real luxury in May. Everything worked well, and the manager and owner were extremely helpful. Thank you!

Beautiful home and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. Every detail is special - from the gardens to the saltwater pool to the comfortable beds to the piano. Our family truly enjoyed our stay here, and the location was great for exploring the surrounding area. We were able to easily visit Portland, Cannon Beach and the Columbia River Gorge with four children under the age of eight in tow. Thank you for letting us experience your home!

  • 5 of 5

Kevin was responsive leading up to the stay and Liz, the host came by to check on us as well as to welcome us to the property. Everything worked really well: kitchen, tvs, wifi, everything. We took a lot of day trips and returned in the afternoon to hit the pool. There are hiking trails in Milwaukee to the south and good restaurants on 17th and 13th in Sellwood. Goto Gino's. They will take care of you.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a business / pleasure trip that spanned over 8 weeks. The home is very comfortable, relaxing, spacious and well kept. The grounds and pool/spa are well maintained and very enjoyable. My children also joined me for a few weeks and didn't want to leave - neither did I. We loved it. Hats off to the owners, landscaper, pool guy and the caretakers! We would definitely recommend this home and want to stay here again.

Worthy Vacation Retreat Destination

  • 5 of 5

Eight family members from four generations spent a week this July in and around Portland, Oregon. Ranging in age from 10-91, we participated in a wide variety of activities. Regrouping as we went along, some made trips to the coast, some explored in and around Portland, and still others enjoyed the quiet retreat-like, atmosphere this property had to offer. We could not have found a location more suited to our family dynamic. While providing a full range of amenities, this property has a very lush, quiet, peaceful sense of seclusion. It is in close enough proximity to the city to provide access to all that Portland has to offer in the way of activities, while being a destination vacation retreat unto itself. We could not recommend this home more highly for anyone who plans a trip to Portland, and wants to come home feeling that they have truly been refreshed. We have been making frequent trips to Portland since one of our children moved there several years ago. This has been by far the best overall lodging experience we have had to date. The many personal touches give this property just the right combination of historic elegance and the comforts of home.
