Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I have enjoyed lovingly restoring this over one-hundred year old house. We are fortunate to have an abundance of local recycled wood from the Rebuilding center which happens to be in the neighborhood. The bedrooms are fitted with old growth planks I salvaged and installed. I have enjoyed making surfboards since the early 70's which I continue to do to this day. Some I make out of solid wood. I have had the good fortune to learn many languages in my travels including Japanese, Norwegian, Tahitian, Hawaiian, French, Spanish, Indonesian, and a smattering of Donald Duck and pig latin.

Why the Owner Chose Mississippi District, Portland, OR, USA:
This house has a great proximity to the airport. There is no need to get in the automobile for healthy food or entertainment. Local transportation is right out the door with the bus line out the door and light rail a 10 minute walk away. Additionally I-5 is easy to access. The Oregon coast is 1.5 hours west and the Columbia River Gorge starts a few minutes to the East. The Cherry Sprout Produce Store being a half block away with its year round fresh local produce. In the same building is the Red Fox which is a cool place to eat and drink. Sweedeedees is a breakfast/bakery that uses only the best quality ingredients has pies, muffins, and cookies of serious grandmotheresque quality. Their building also has Mississippi Records which deals in used vinyl. All of the establishments play vinyl on a regular basis.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
This house is located in the N. Mississippi/ N. Albina corridor.
