About the Property

1 bedrm, 1 full bath plus kitchen. Lots of art! Lower level Apt. Private entry.

Welcome to my home! A beautiful and spacious 900 foot totally private lower level apartment space with your own entrance. This 1924 home on a double lot was completely updated in 2010 and has a large back yard for guests. Located in the inner NE neighborhood of North Tabor - a short hop to all of the great east-side neighborhoods with a 5-minute walk to a MAX train stop. Very easy access to downtown by train or a 15-minute drive by car. 5-minute drive (15 blocks) to Providence Hospital.

Filled with lovely colors and lots original art by Northwest artists, there is a new QUEEN bed, plus a TWIN bed in the large STUDIO-SYTLE space. The beds are firm foam with temperature sensitive toppers and all-cotton sheets. (A privacy curtain can be pulled to separate the two sleeping areas.) In the sitting area is a 32" TV with DVD player and free WIFI. A desk and bookshelves allows for a comfortable place for computer work. (Please note that we do not have full TV cable channels.)
The kitchen is a separate room with a table and chairs, stainless refrigerator, sink, microwave, hot plate, toaster oven, coffee maker and lots of dishes, utensils and pans. The appliances are new and function well. The only appliance that is "missing" is a full range/oven.

This spotlessly clean home includes comfy all-cotton towels and sheets. The large updated bath is tiled, with a tub/shower combination.

If needed in the summer, there is a portable air conditioner to keep the space very cool. And a small electric fireplace for extra heat and atmosphere in the winter.
(Please note that a washer and dryer are not available.)

Lots of free parking on the street. Two egress windows. Fenced back yard with table and chairs.

There are several stairs to the lower level, but once you are inside everything is on one level, a spacious 900 feet. The two owners live very quietly upstairs on the main floor. You may occasionally see us and 2 small 10-pound allergy-free Maltese dogs come or go, but we are very quiet. The dogs are never unattended or left alone in the house. As the owner, I am available to answer questions, and always answer my phone! If I am not available I will return your call asap. No exceptions.

15-minute drive to downtown Portland (5 miles away). 5-minute walk to a MAX train line. You can arrive directly by train from the airport and easily hop on the train to go downtown, to the Convention Center, Zoo, Expo Center, Hollywood and Lloyd District neighborhoods... The house is two blocks from a grocery store and coffee shop. 20-minute walk to Mt Tabor Park. 5 to 10-minute drive to major close-in neighborhoods such as Hollywood, NE Broadway, SE Division, SE Hawthorne, SE Belmont, SE Burnside and 28th Ave (tons of restaurants on each of these streets!) and a 15 minute drive to NE Alberta St and N Mississippi Ave. Providence Hospital is in the neighborhood, 5 minute drive.

The neighborhood is a small pocket that is still old Portland, with new Portland updates. It is very quiet, as there is virtually no through traffic, yet is within minutes to freeway access, bus and train lines, and you can be downtown by car in 10 minutes. Although the map looks like it is close to the freeway (2 blocks away), there is a large wall to diminish noise; it is virtually undectable in my yard, and has no impact inside the house.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: I have been in the art gallery business as a director and owner of several galleries, and was a goldsmith and silversmith for many years - something I have recently revived. I have also been a Principal Real Estate Broker for 10 years, and now work under my own company name, Back Home Real Estate LLC. Making people feel welcome and at home is a pleasure! www.backhomerealestate.com

Why the Owner Chose North Tabor, Portland, OR, USA:
This is a completely updated 1924 bungalow, so there are many comforts that can't be found in other older homes. The double lot in the middle of a city offers a lot of privacy that is not possible in homes with smaller lots. The two-car garage (now my silversmithing studio) and quiet neighborhood clinched the deal when purchasing this home several years ago.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
Very close access to everything Portland has to offer, and a beautiful environment in which to relax. 5-minute walk to the MAX train line.
