About the Property

The PERFECT Retreat for your family, business travel, get-aways up to 16 guests.

Welcome to Diane's Urban Farm, a classic, updated 3,200 sq.ft. mid-century brick home with daylight basement, nestled in the historic Vancouver Heights neighborhood, minutes from downtown Portland, Oregon and the Portland Airport.
The quarter acre urban retreat features a private, beautifully landscaped backyard with a 6 person hot tub and a large covered patio with plenty of backyard seating. The gardens offer a place to stroll, breath-taking seasonal flora, vegetable and herb gardens.
The open-concept living space is furnished with a comfortable sectional and modern décor, additional seating at the breakfast bar, and a 52' TV with surround sound to enjoy while preparing meals and hanging out. There is seating for up to 8 in the dining room with additional seating at the eat-in breakfast bar. The kitchen is stocked with everything you'll need to prepare and serve your entire party, dishes and silver service for up to 20, all stainless steel appliances, KitchenAid mixer, Oster blender, and plenty of high-end cook and serve ware.
The home features 5 luxuriously appointed bedrooms (3 Kings and 2 Queens), a Queen sleeper-sofa, and 2 twin roll-away cots. All of the beds have super comfortable, top-of-the-line bedding guaranteed to give you a good night's sleep.
Three of the bedrooms are located on the main level in the bedroom wing.
1. Grey Master Bedroom w/En Suite bath, King bed, crystal chandelier and relaxing decor
2. Blue Room with super comfortable King Sleep Number bed
3. Mid-Century Room, Queen bedroom is modern and bright

4. Library Room is a quiet retreat off the theater room with a comfortable Queen bed decorated in modern decor.
5/6. The "Mother-in-Law" apartment provides a private fully-functional retreat with a separate King bedroom and a Queen Sleeper-Sofa in the living area. The apartment has its own outside entrance through a private courtyard. It features office space, a kitchenette with cook-top, mini-fridge, microwave and toaster oven, and the third bathroom.

The vintage 1950's pool table, poker table and cozy club seating make the party room the perfect place to hang out. Behind the full-service wet bar you will find an ice maker, mini-fridge and everything you need to make and serve that perfect cocktail. This is the place where you can all be together at the end of the day or the guys to hang out to watch to Big Game.

The Theater Room is situated on the lower level. Sit back and relax on reclining theater chairs and watch your favorite movie on the 102” screen with high-end projection and surround sound! You will find a large selection of movies to choose from our library, or a full line-up of cable television including HBO, STARZ, Cinemax, Showtime and a full sports package. In addition, many current films and children’s movies are recorded and On Demand.

Diane’s Urban Farm is pet-friendly, fenced and welcomes well-behaved dogs to enjoy the property with their owners. There is a wonderful walking trail through a reserved green space just a few blocks from the house. The neighborhood is filled with old evergreens, wide streets, and established homes, perfect for the walk to the park.
I am committed to providing you with a true home away from home, a place for you to create memories of a lifetime. Diane’s Urban Farm is where I’ve been entertaining and hosting events for my family and friends for the past several years, a place where many memories have already been made.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Welcome to Diane’s Urban Farm! My family and I have been using private homes on vacation rental sites for the past several years for our holidays at the beach, a wedding in Puerto Vallarta, Christmas in the mountains, and a family vacation to Disneyland. At each of these, we enjoyed a wonderful, bonding time together by staying in a home and created some of the best memories ever! When I was young, I used to dream about owning a Bed and Breakfast. Back then, it was going to be a log house in the mountains of North Idaho where I grew up. Life, family and a 25 year career in the insurance industry got in the way of the dream, but it never went away. After an extended illness, I took an early retirement in 2014 and decided to pursue my dream. My home in Vancouver was perfect! It was already set up to accommodate my family of 15; 4 adult children, their 4 spouses/significant other, 6 grandkids, and myself. Many happy weekends, holidays and milestones have been celebrated here with my family. I am delighted to be pursuing my dream and make every attempt to make you and your guests feel welcome.

Why the Owner Chose Vancouver Heights, Vancouver, WA, USA:
While searching for a home several years ago, I was looking for a forever place. This home not only met, but exceeded my expectations with its easy freeway access, proximity to a medical facility, established neighborhood with large, private lots, and a wonderful daylight mid-century brick home with the perfect interior for entertaining. In addition, I wanted a separate apartment unit. The gardens have been a labor of love and has been dubbed Diane's Urban Farm.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
*Five bedrooms (3 King bedrooms, 2 Queen bedrooms), 1 Queen Sleeper/Sofa, 2 Twin Roll-Away Beds, 3 bathrooms, sleeps up to 16. *Beautiful gardens, covered patio and plenty of outdoor seating on a private lot. *Fully functional "Mother-in-Law" apartment with separate entry and courtyard. *Modern, Updated Décor. *Ultimate high-end bedding and comfortable beds
