Property description

Welcome to our comfortable, modern home in Portland’s fantastic Kenton neighborhood! The home is in a wonderful location just a half-block off of Kenton Park, with its great playground, fun splash pad in the summer and lots of open space to run around. Walk across the park to the Kenton Business District on Denver Avenue to get coffee at Posies Cafe, eat great Italian food at Pizza Fino, grab a delicious breakfast at the Cup and Saucer, enjoy a local brew at one of Kenton’s several bars, take a yoga class or get a massage or acupuncture at Kenton Family Wellness, cruise the farmer’s market in the summer months, search for great finds at several antique and secondhand shops or drop in on a story time at the Kenton library!

Make yourself at home in the fully equipped kitchen, where you can make meals from scratch with all the right tools. Includes dishwasher and microwave. Open floor plan flows into dining and living space, where you can cozy up with a book or movie to the light of the gas fireplace. Living room has open layout great for kids spinning circles or playing board games.

Sleep soundly in the king bed in the master suite. Down the hall you’ll find two additional bedrooms. The second bedroom has a twin trundle bed (twin mattress on top and another twin mattress down below that pulls out) and a desk for writing or catching up on email. The third bedroom has a queen bed. Each bedroom has a dresser. The hallway bathroom has a tub for bath time and the master bathroom has a stand-up shower.

We have traveled extensively with our children and have taken the lessons we’ve learned to make the home comfortable for young families. No need to pack up the entire nursery! The house is equipped with everything you might need, including: a pack-n-play, a highchair, a mounted baby gate at the top of the stairs, kid-friendly tableware and cutlery and kids’ books and toys. The kitchen has a Cuisinart mini chopper for making baby food.

Have an afternoon glass of chardonnay or famous Oregon pinot noir in the private, shaded back yard, or fire up the charcoal grill in the summertime.

There is so much to do in the neighborhood, but from this home you also have the entire city at your fingertips. Catch the Max (light rail) train in Kenton and ride it Downtown, to the Rose Quarter, to the Zoo, to the airport or many other spots around the city. Several bus lines also pick up close to the house, taking you to nearby trendy areas like the Alberta Arts District and Mississippi Avenue. With the house’s proximity to great services and convenient transit it would be so easy to stay at this home car-free.

The house’s walk score is an 83, or “very walkable”.
For those visiting with a car, the home has easy access to highways and downtown Portland is a quick 10-minute drive. The home is just an 8-minute drive to the University of Portland, Adidas’ U.S. headquarters and Portland’s Expo Center. The Portland Zoo is a 13-minute drive, as is the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. It’s a 10-minute drive to the trendy Pearl District and the famous Powell’s City of Books. Portland has easy access to some spectacular natural beauty. From the house it’s a 15-minute drive to Forest Park (one of the country’s largest urban forest reserves), a 50-minute drive to Multnomah Falls in the Columbia River Gorge, a 45-minute drive to wine country and a beautiful 1 hour 40 minute drive to the Oregon Coast.

The house has WiFi Internet access, cable television and easy parking in the driveway. The house also has air conditioning. Washer/dryer conveniently located in upstairs laundry room.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: We are a family of four who live in Portland and work in Portland and Los Angeles. We love traveling as much as we can, especially in the Western U.S. and Europe. We were inspired to start sharing our home through VRBO after staying in some wonderful VRBO properties. We pride ourselves on making our guests feel at home, and making sure they get a real feel for the neighborhood - one of the best treats about staying in a home. We also aspire to make our properties family-friendly and a great home-base for people who love to cook. Annie is a recovering journalist turned homemaker, and Ian is a finance guy. Hope you enjoy your stay and please don't hesitate to reach out.

Why the Owner Chose Kenton, Portland, OR, USA:
We attended the University of Portland and loved the livability and family-friendliness of North Portland. We fell in love with this house and with Kenton because of its huge park and its happening business district. We love that this house is walking distance to an awesome park, great restaurants, a seasonal farmer's market and a hip grocery store. We also love that Kenton has a Max stop, so you can quickly zip downtown for fun outings. This house has all the creature comforts, including a king-sized bed, totally modern kitchen, comfortable AC for Portland's warm summer days and a cozy gas fireplace for those rainy days.
