Car: Recommended

Kenton is a great neighborhood from which to experience Portland! It is close to the I-5 freeway, about fifteen minutes from PDX airport, twenty minutes from downtown, and walking distance to the TriMet and MAX line (should you choose not to drive.)

From historic Kenton (which was founded in 1911, and annexed by Portland a few years later,) you are conveniently located to enjoy your stay in Portland. Go shopping in nearby Hayden Island. Check out a race at PIR or an event at the Expo Center. Walk to New Seasons or Green Zebra markets. Or stroll down Denver Avenue and enjoy the restaurants, bars, antique and local goods shops, the library, and more. Be sure to visit the giant Paul Bunyan statue while you are here.

If you are visiting Portland with children, there are many fun places to go that are within a twenty to thirty minute drive. OMSI, the Portland Zoo, the Children's Museum, Oaks Park, the Japanese Gardens, Powell's City of Books, Forest Park hiking trails, the Audubon Society, and Pittock Mansion are a few hot spots.

For adults, Portland's night life has much to offer. Go see a play, opera, or ballet in one of the theaters downtown. Partake in appetizers and cocktails at Portland City Grill where, if you get there early, you can sit by the window and look out over the whole city. Enjoy dinner and dancing on the waterfront of the Willamette River. Check out the drag show put on by Darcelle XV, 'the oldest female impersonator on the West Coast.' Or rent bicycles and explore the town. Don't forget to stop at one of the many gourmet food carts for a delicious taste of local flavor.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: My name is Laurie Tuite. My mother, Barbara, is the actual owner of Farragut House. I live in Portland and manage the property for my family. Barbara is an honest to goodness rocket scientist (aerospace engineer) who is now retired. She lives in Florida with her husband, Jay, and two of her four kids. I am an English teacher turned temporary stay-at-home mom. My husband, son, and I live in the Kenton neighborhood as well, just about six blocks away from Farragut House.

Why Kenton, Portland, OR, USA:
A few years ago, Barbara's oldest child (me) moved to Portland. I was living in the San Francisco Bay Area which I loved. But after only one visit to Portland, Oregon I knew that this was the place for me. It has all of the excitement and charm of the big city, but Portland is much cleaner, safer, and more affordable. Deciding to move to Portland was the easiest big decision I've ever made. Flash forward a couple years, and I am now married and have a cute little son (Barbara's first grandchild.) That led to several visits to Portland from Barbara and the family, and their eventual decision to buy a house here. Barbara and Jay looked at many homes, and toured many neighborhoods, before settling on Farragut House. It is brand new, so repairs and maintenance will be minimal. There won't be any lead paint or black mold which may still be present in even the nicest of remodels. And its location on a quiet street in Kenton makes it peaceful and comfortable to return to after a day of visiting friends and family or exploring Portland. This has been a really great home-away-from-home for my family while staying in Portland. We hope you'll feel the same way!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Farragut House has many benefits. Its proximity to the 5 freeway, the ease with which one can travel to and from both the airport and downtown, the quietness of the neighborhood, and the design and layout of the house itself all add up to Farragut House being an ideal home base from which to experience Portland.
