The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and dining, and features a vintage Chambers range, spacious refrigerator, coffee maker, toaster, and microwave oven.

Downtown Portland is 4 miles close, an easy trip by car, bike or bus service, with bus line 70 just a couple blocks away. For young ones, there's a Pack-n-Play and high chair available, as well as toys, books and an awesome Brio train set.

Car: Recommended

Sellwood is located in SE Portland, a growing, active and creative district. There are many things to do in Sellwood and surrounding areas. Take a walk through the Oaks Bottom Wildlife refuge and spot a bald eagle. Browse and shop the unique local and creative shops, and visit the famed Antique Row. Taste a few of the local restaurants, food carts, and public house menus. Bike, run or walk the Springwater Trail along the Willamette River, a short 4 miles to downtown. Visit Oaks Park, America's oldest continuously operating amusement park. Jump in a car and see the great scenery of the Pacific Northwest, such as the Gorge, Mt. Hood, Oregon Coast, Willamette Valley, and others.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We relocated to Portland in 2010 because of the vibrant and creative environment in and around the city, and to be within the amazing and beautiful Pacific Northwest region.

Why the Owner Chose Sellwood - Moreland, Portland, OR, USA:
We love Portland and the Pacific Northwest, and chose this house in Sellwood because the location is close to everything we need and enjoy, we can walk to almost everything from the house, and the neighborhood has a great comfortable vibe.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This cozy Bungalow has more depth than one would think. There are nice spaces like the upstairs room for reading and relaxing with a rocking chair and sofa/futon, and the finished basement with a private queen bed, full bathroom, sofa/futon, bucket chairs, TV and laundry. One of our favorite features of this house is the front porch, which on warmer days, is literally an extra outdoor room overlooking the garden below. Just steps away are two amazing parks, Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge, Riverfront Park along the river, Oaks Amusement Park, some of Portland's finest restaurants, some great local casual dining including food carts, a New Seasons market, Sellwood's Antique Row, some of Portland's most unique shops, a public library, public transit, and more.
