Situated on a quiet bike street two blocks from the famous Alberta Street. Our beautiful new indoor/outdoor living space has three skylights with an open floor plan designed for showcasing artwork. The brand new kitchen is designed for a chef.
Our 16 foot door opens for an 8 foot opening directly to the outdoors on the north side of our house. It feels special when you are in the space. Our very unique design has the main living space sunken for a real feel of the outdoors. The heated concrete floors automatically come on for comfort on cooler nights. Another favorite of our new house is the bathroom which includes a rain/massage shower head and a skylight to allow natural light in. The automatic ventilation system comes on when you are taking a shower and the tile floor is heated. And the kitchen is fabulous. I love to cook and have all of the best kitchen appliances and tools, including a steam oven.
We close off our studios and the rest of the house, so you will have the main room, kitchen and small open room off of kitchen. In the main room there is a murphy bed that pulls out.
I love to garden and in the summer plant tomatoes, herbs, lettuces, etc. Also, we have an apple, plum, fig and nectarine tree. Our guests will have access to any fresh vegetables or fruit that are ripe. Anything that is not ripe, we will eat when we return. If you love coffee, we have a Jura coffee/espresso maker, we'll leave instructions. Our office and both of our studios will be locked off, so you will come into the garden side entrance where you will enter into the living space.
Our neighborhood is fantastic with some of Portland's best restaurants, bakeries, boutique shops and festivals. Alberta Street is two blocks away for easy access to everything. To mention a few, Petite Provence to indulge in fresh pastries; Salt and Straw for the most unique ice creams; a couple of Portland's renowned restaurants including Beast and Aviary; many boutique shops, foot wear shops, art galleries, and a coffee shop on every corner. If you are here on the last Thursday of the month, Alberta street shuts out car traffic and vendors with jewelry, pottery, artworks, food carts, and the best dancing and street music around Fills the street for the festive 'Last Thursday'. Every Sunday from May to November, two blocks west from our house between 10am to 2pm is a farmers market with music, local foods and seafood.
There are three different bus stops withing a few blocks from our house. The closest is three blocks away, and the farthest is 7 blocks away, depending on the direction you want to go.
