Bend is central Oregon's four season hub for all types of outdoor recreation from snow skiing to mountain biking. The Three Sisters Wilderness, Cascade Mountain Range, and High Desert to the East provide endless opportunities for exploration. In town there are miles of walking trails, 15 microbreweries, many excellent restaurants, and a shoppers paradise on Wall and Bond streets and at the Old Mill. St Francis McMenamin's with it's Turkish soaking pool is 2 blocks away. The Deschutes river trails and parks are five blocks. Old Mill shops are eight blocks.
Within a 30 minute drive of Wren's Nest there is Alpine skiing, Nordic skiing, tubing, world class mountain biking, road biking, hiking, rafting, lake and whitewater kayaking, swimming and tubing. Of course there's plenty of porch sitting at the house.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: After searching the Pacific Northwest for the perfect place to hang our hats in retirement we found Bend offered the places and spaces for all of the outdoor and cultural activities we enjoy. Even better, all of these places are within an hours drive. The town offers our favorite beverages, excellent restaurants, and entertainment all a short walk from our historic home. The idea of walking and biking to escape the constant need of a car was high on our priority list. We are fortunate to have found the place, Bend, and the space, our Wren's Nest to enjoy for many years. We are delighted to share what we enjoy with others. Even the drive over the Cascade Range to sunny Bend is the beginning of our scenic adventure. If we are not hiking, Nordic skiing, kayaking, biking, or exploring the high desert, we are enjoying the culture and festivities Bend offers. There is always entertainment or adventure just outside, a short walk or ride from our door.
Why the Owner Chose Old Bend, Bend, OR, USA:
Location, location, location. We wanted to downsize and live in a comfortable home in the heart of Bend. That we found a solid, comfortable, historic property made this choice of home even more special. To be located on a quiet, neighborhood street just steps from all the town of Bend has to offer sealed the deal.
The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
The mill house is located in a designated Historic District of Bend. All dwellings and businesses within this district are required to retain the turn-of-the-century exterior conditions when improving a property. This home's stacked lava rock foundation, original fir wood floor and other vintage details of the era are retained along with updates to interior spaces.
