The Space
Elegant Sellwood 1910 Old Portland Home with Hot Tub

Step up to the huge front porch as you enter this charming 1910 Portland Style home. Before entering the front door, notice the porch swing and porch glider sofa, here is a perfect place to allow the morning sunshine to gently nudge you awake while you drink your morning beverage and contemplate the image of your day to come.

The living room with built-ins has a large flat screen HDTV and DVD player, a sink-into comfortable sleeper sofa and cushy chairs emoting a relaxing atmosphere. The large windows allow the sun inside to bounce around the room and nourish not only the striking flora, but warms your heart and soul. Plenty of light and a large table/chairs provides a place to reflect on your day or enjoy an intimate dinner with a special someone.

Your cooking dreams come true in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen with all the amenities. As this is the owner’s kitchen, it is well stocked with spices, cooking utensils, dishes, all appliances you find in your own home. Find a large set of Fiestaware, a Microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, coffee maker and bean grinder, electric teapot with a wonderful selection of teas, an icemaker, Foodsaver. wine decanters and bottle openers. Plenty of room to create that special recipe you never had time to try at home. Then take the weight off your feet in the sunny, sky-lit breakfast nook and enjoy the rewards of your culinary creativity.


From the kitchen, walk out to the backyard to find the gas barbecue grill and outside patio table and chairs. A perfect private spot to enjoy the berries growing from the bushes along the wall or the grapes whose vines surround the back of the house. Here you might choose to enjoy a glass of wine, waiting for your grilled dinner as you get a glimpse the night’s plans while looking over to see the always ready hot tub.

Did we mention the bathroom and the amazing shower? ...Step through the glass door to the granite encased shower where you find three body sprays and two shower heads to engulf you in an invigorating water melody... Or choose the huge claw foot tub to soak your body to relaxation in the provided bath salts. Better yet, head out the bathroom door to the deck and step down to the hot tub where you can soak in the always hot churning waters.

When it is time to rest, snuggle yourself into the queen sized Temperpedic style bed, under luxurious tc sheets and quilts, as your head rests on the softness of several pillows. From here, you can be lulled to sleep with music from the tv or watch a late night movie on the premium channels. Or better yet… lie still and enjoy the peaceful quiet of the night. Sleep soundly while the air filtration system cleans any minute particles from the air you breathe while you dream of another day in the lush paradise of Oregon.

Lots of lighting throughout makes this home warm anytime of the year. Motion detector outdoor lights see you coming and illuminate your path around the house. Covered parking in the driveway is yours to use. This positions you close to either entrance to the house. Additional covered storage is available for a bike or kayak/canoe.

You will feel pampered in this 1,000 sq ft of elegance situated in one of the most popular Portland walking neighborhoods. From here, you are 5 miles from downtown and Waterfront Park. Closer yet to the riverfront park, the tram and wonderful neighborhoods with their own charm. Find the farmers market a few blocks away every Wednesday night until late October. Walk a block away to local coffee houses, restaurants and food carts.

We can arrange for a massage, kayaking, bike rentals, antiquing, Columbia Sportswear Outlet shopping, manicure, pedicure, wine tasting, amazing cuisine and the best sushi in all of Portland within a few blocks of the house.

This truly is a remarkable experience not to be missed.

This home can also be combined with the basement guest suite to provide a second bathroom and large bedroom suite for additional space. See the other listing for more information on the guest suite in this home's basement.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am thrilled to welcome new friends to my home. I have been in the travel/tourism business for years. I lived in Santa Fe, NM; Phoenix and Scottsdale, Arizona; San Diego and Los Angeles California; Racine, Wisconsin and Pensacola, Florida. I found a home in Oregon and moved here in 1997 discovering all of what I enjoyed in other places I've lived. I am an advocate for Oregon through my work and my hobbies. I enjoy seeing others discover the beauties of Oregon, especially of my friendly neighborhood. Sellwood is a great place to walk and discover the quaint Portland antique shops or to dine Al fresco at the neighborhood food carts and a variety of wonderful restaurants. Since I love to travel. I am always looking for great places to visit and I have traveled to many countries over the years. Another reason I welcome people from near and far.

Why the Owner Chose Southeast Portland, Portland, OR, USA:
“HIGHLY RECOMMENDED” Left on 01/07/2015 for a stay in December 2014 Warm, cozy, comfortable, quiet, clean, well situated close by Sellwood town center (2 blocks), which has a Midwestern small town feel, and very good restaurants (Italian, Japanese, Thai, American, deli, etc.), as well as a great bike rental, an excellent health (organic etc.) food market, Columbia sportswear outlet (great selection, and super prices, which regularly get reduced even further - call before going for sale days - which occur as often as 2 days per week), and banks (Wells Fargo and Bank of America are about 1 mile away). Directly next to bike and walking / running routs that connect: into, around, and well beyond the Portland city center (which is about 6 miles away). Full modern kitchen, with bright skylighted dining nook, living room with gas fired fireplace and a comfortable couch and chairs, as well as warm furry blankets. There are also: a great multi-jet shower, laundry facilities, good parking, a front room dining / work table with chairs - and a very nice and helpful landlord. ***** Bathroom cleanliness ***** Bedding & mattresses ***** Value ***** Access ***** Other facilities & amenities ***** Overall condition ***** Booking ***** Kitchen & utensils Recommend this vacation rental to a friend? Yes “Perfect” Left on 09/19/2014 for a stay in September 2014 I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to stay in Rose's cottage in Sellwood. My only concern is that the whole world will discover this house and I'll have to stand in line to stay there again. I think I would stand in line, though. Yes, I would. If you enjoy a wonderful location; a light-filled, sparkling clean, architecturally interesting and beautifully decorated house with every thoughtful amenity one can imagine; and the perfect host, look no further. Bathroom cleanliness ***** Bedding & mattresses ***** Value ***** Access ***** Other facilities & amenities ***** Recommend this vacation rental? YES

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying in the Sellwood neighborhood, only 5 miles from downtown Portland, will take you back in time to those neighborhoods that are reminiscent of the 50s. Easy walking, biking and transit make having a car less a necessity. With a high walking and biking score, this neighborhood will return you to the simple days of yesteryear. Its history goes back to the late 1800s when finely dressed ladies and gentlemen walked to Sellwood Park in their finest, enjoying the fresh air of the second-growth forest and the scenic Wilamette River, only blocks from this 1910 house.
