Stroll NW 23rd Ave and enjoy the myriad restaurants, cafes, local breweries, and stores that start one block away. Downtown and the Pearl District can be reached by the streetcar or by foot.

During the months of March through December on Saturday mornings, you can go to the Portland Farmers Market where you'll find fresh organic fruits, vegetables, and homemade breads and condiments. There's music and food trucks and a lovely setting in the South Park Blocks of downtown by the PSU campus.

You can get to the ModaCenter, Portland's sports arena and largest music venue, and to the Convention Center on the east side by streetcar as well. Washington Park with the Japanese Gardens and the Rose Garden is also within walking distance.

If you have a car, you can get to the beautiful Columbia River Gorge to see Multnomah Falls and/or Vista Point or take a hike on one of the many trails located in the Gorge within 40 minutes. Or drive west to the Oregon coast in an hour and a half where you'll find even more breathtaking hikes and the dramatic splendor of the Pacific coast.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: I moved here 17 years ago following a visit where I fell in love with Portland's 'not so big' size and European feel. My business partner is native to the area and shares my feelings about the city's energy and diversity.

Why the Owner Chose Northwest District, Portland, OR, USA:
Not unlike as it was in the early 1900's showing its prosperity, our NW neighborhood has seen a revival spurred on by gentrification. As such, we have renovated this Historic Beauty over the past 15 years trying to keep the original circa 1900 feel. In the backyard, the setting is tranquil with a great soft-scaped patio space.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
One of the best benefits of this property is that it's in a quiet, residential neighborhood yet just a few minutes from all of the action of NW Portland, Pearl District and Downtown! If you like to walk and explore, this is such a lovely neighborhood in which to do that. No car is necessary for your stay here. I love the history of the building and how the turn-of-the-century character has been preserved in its details. The front porch is stately by appearance and provides a wonderful place to relax, enjoy a beverage, and watch passersby.
