Car: Recommended

Cully neighborhood, adjacent to Beaumont-Wilshire and Concordia neighborhoods. Quiet, feels rural, with large gardens. Close to downtown and airport. Easy day trips to mountains or the ocean. Portland has many urban greenspaces -- wild to formal -- to explore. Several nearby neighborhood shopping opportunities.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: Carolyn, a Portland native, is retired from 30 years of hospital work. Bruce is a retired horticulture instructor. Although he grew up on the Chesapeake Bay, he has lived in Portland since 1974. Carolyn now permits him to be called a westerner.

Why the Owner Chose Cully, Portland, OR, USA:
We stumbled into this Cully Neighborhood property in 1978 with the help of some good friends, and have loved it ever since. We feel lucky to have known some of the previous occupants, and that the neighborhood has been so friendly.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The large half-acre garden is our main 'home activity.' We've sited the buildings (main house, workshop, and cottage, all rather small) in such a way as to preserve the gardening space. We love showing off all of it!
