About the Property
Not a good party pad, but perfect for professionals/romantic getaways/families.
Across the street from one of the largest urban parks in America with over 5000 acres, Forest Park provides endless paths and a wilderness experience (might prefer a car for reaching trail heads). This townhouse offers views of 3-4 volcanoes, the Willamette River and St. John's bridge. You will want a car - you really NEED a car - at this location to go pretty much anywhere, but there IS a bus if issues present themselves: http://trimet.org/pdfs/schedulemaps/016.pdf
This location is perfect for four or fewer people! One small bathroom is downstairs off of the living room and kitchen area for guests, while two additional full bathrooms are upstairs with three carpeted bedrooms. The bedrooms upstairs include one queen bed (room #1), two twin beds (room #2), and there is an empty third bedroom for yoga or just extra space. The patio offers water and volcano views, and the kitchen features granite counter tops, SS appliances, dining table for four plus two bar stools, as well as a complete set of dishes and cookware.This location is not ideal for BBQ time, and there is no BBQ equipment.
High-speed wireless service is available. In addition, there's one television with very basic cable in the living room, but otherwise is is a fairly low-tech space - there are not speakers for music or that sort of thing.
This is a non-smoking residence, and animals/boats/trailers/motorcycles/etc. are NOT permitted here (with the neighbors’ bedroom windows over the driveway, big fun toys can actually be problematic). Except in the case of animal reports or smoking/noise/parking/neighbor complaints, key loss or damages to the property, security deposits will be returned within 7 days of check out.

Bathrooms: 2 Bathrooms, 1 Half Bathroom
- There are 'enough' but minimal decorations so that you have space to organize your things (not many trinkets). This unit is VERY clean, the building is relatively new, and the beds/linens are professionally cleaned and managed. Unfortunately, and given the quiet nature of this neighborhood, motorized vehicles other than cars (eg, motorcycles, trailers, boats, 3/4-wheelers) are not permitted at this location. ...moreless

This relatively new townhome is clean, new, quiet, safe, and very comfortable for small family or romantic getaways, as well as for executive travel. Just a few minutes from shops and grocery stores, this property is near St. Johns (TWO minutes over the bridge to St. Johns) but technically in Forest Park (Just off of the south side of the St. Johns bridge). You do need a car, but you will be right across the street (and down the road a bit) from Forest Park trail heads, a large wilderness space with endless trails for walking, running, and hiking. Hiking in Forest Park, enjoying St. Johns and views of its bridge, as well as dinners in the Pearl District are all very easy from here.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I am a working professor who likes to spend time away from home - this is my writing retreat.
Why the Owner Chose St. Johns, Portland, OR, USA:
Having spent time remodeling a 1950s condo and then a 100-year old home, I like new construction. This is a large town home with a warm fireplace in a very quiet location.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The views of the volcanoes and river are stunning, and I enjoy jetting out for a quick hike in Forest Park. This condo is relatively new, so it is just a nice place to spend some time.
