Property description

As experienced and persnickety travelers ourselves, we designed this home with the goal of creating a place we would love to stay. We’re proud to report that it’s finally finished and is as comfy, cozy, clean and cool as we’d hoped.

High ceilings and clean lines create a bright, airy atmosphere. The open-concept kitchen, dining and living areas have a modern/industrial look and every amenity you need to settle into your new home base and explore one of Portland’s most interesting neighborhoods.

Set the coffee maker to wake up to the smell of one of Portland’s famous roasts. The spacious king bedroom is fitted with luxury linens and plenty of extra space for a yoga mat or two. The bathroom is bright and clean, with original claw-foot tub/shower and extra-large towels. The second bedroom, off the kitchen, is a cozy hideaway for up to three kids (bunk bed is twin over full), another couple or a quiet office for mom or dad. Additional guests may sleep on the full sofabed in the living room. The house sleeps 1-5 adults or a family quite comfortably, making it perfect for a romantic getaway, family vacation, in-laws' visit, girls' weekend, or even a solo business traveler who wants to explore beyond downtown.

This is a free-standing, single family home with all living space, including laundry, on one level. There are approximately nine steps from the street to the front door. The lower three steps do not have a handrail, so if accessibility is an issue, this may not be the home for you.

There is one off-street parking space and plenty of on-street parking out front.

The house is located on a leafy, quiet side street just ½ block off NE Alberta Street on NE 8th Avenue.

Downtown Portland is 10 minutes by car or about 20 minutes by bus (#6 direct via MLK Blvd). Portland International Airport (PDX) is 15 minutes by car or 60 minutes via public transportation (MAX light rail/bus #6).

Alberta Arts is at the heart of Portland’s legendary indie business community. It’s a mile-long stretch of originality where you can buy a vintage skirt for $10 around the corner from a rare book shop that sells first editions for thousands. It’s where now-famous chefs became famous and where baristas get in shape for international competitions.

If you want to try all of the great restaurants, bars, cafés, food carts and coffeeshops of Alberta Arts, you’ll need to stay a month. But if you don’t have that long, don’t worry. We can give you a short list of musts. Here are a few highlights, for your Googling pleasure: Beast, Pine State Biscuits, Ciao Vito, Barista, Aviary, Salt & Straw Ice Cream, Pok Pok Noi (not technically on Alberta, but only a 13 minute walk).

Alberta Street is home to Last Thursday, a monthly street festival that closes the street for a few hours in the evening for gallery hopping, live music, people-watching, fire dancing, street art and performances of all kinds.

Every Sunday from early May through mid-November, a lively Portland Neighborhood Farmers Market takes place just two blocks away on the grounds of King Elementary School.

What makes this property even more perfectly located is its proximity to not just Alberta, but also the N. Williams and N. Mississippi business districts, home of even more great food, wine, beer and coffee, fashion and home goods. A short bike ride or a long-ish walk will take you to either of these pockets of goodness in a snap.

Needless to say, our goal is to help you fall as in love with Portland as we are. Let us know what we can do to make you feel comfortable and at home before and during your stay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Kurt, a commercial photographer, is a famously hospitable midwesterner. Ginger, an advertising copywriter, is from Seattle. Both of us are passionate about sharing the wonders of the Pacific Northwest with friends and visitors. We've lived in Alberta Arts for more than a decade, and we've enjoyed watching it become the mecca of food, drink, coffee, shopping and relaxing that it is today.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Portland, Portland, OR, USA:
We purchased this adorable home in 2013 thinking we would love to have a larger space for in-laws to stay when they visit. The house was full of potential for comfortable, modern living and a full-year renovation later, ta-da. Handsome Hideaway was born. We are now thrilled to share it with visitors from all over the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is absolutely perfect - close to downtown yet walking distance to not one but three thriving shopping/dining districts: Alberta, Williams & Mississippi.
