About the Property

This quaint 1 bedroom furnished apt. is located in a historic Eng. Tutor home.

For our guests benefit this apartment is fully licensed (TL-229235-000-00-HO) and regulated by the city of Portland. Your apartment has a separate private entrance, and courtyard. You can enjoy total privacy from your host. The location is Laurelhurst - one of Portland's oldest and most beautiful planned communities on a quiet, tree lined street within 10 minutes of the city and 15 min. from the airport. Major shopping, wonderful restaurants and one of Portland's most beautiful parks are all within walking distance. This ideal location is only two blocks from a major bus line and 5 blocks from the MAX train. It is also within walking distance of favorite east side shopping and dining areas, including Hawthorne, Belmont and 28th street.

When you enter this mid-century decorated apartment you will immediately feel at home! You will find a comfortable queen sized bed, overstuffed chair and desk with wireless internet and flat screen with cable, video player and Sony speaker doc in the bedroom. The newly tiled bathroom has a tub and shower and, although there is not a separate 'living room', the kitchen and pantry is fully furnished with everything you may need to make your own meals if you choose (i.e. microwave, gas stove, refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, dishes, pots/pans, spices, condiments, etc.). Other amenities include a private courtyard, washer/dryer in the apt., and easy walking distance to bus, train, restaurants and shopping.


More information on our historic home can be found on Oregon's Encyclopedia website. Search for 'Brick House Beautiful'. Our home has also been in 'Better Home and Gardens' magazine and has been twice on the cover of 'Old House Journal'.

If we are home when you arrive, we will be happy to give you a tour of our home and offer you a cup of tea or a glass of wine while you have complete access to our English gardens, courtyard and barbeque during your stay. We think you will be pleased if you choose to stay in the 'Quaint Garden Apartment ' located in our beautiful historic home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We live in a historic home in Laurelhurst, in Portland. Sue is a retired principal and Bob retired from the big aerospace company in Seattle (Boeing). Sue has a passion for decorating and gardening (is very creative and good at both), Bob is into art and also enjoys and appreciates creating and living in a tasteful environment. We both enjoy entertaining, hosting frequent social gatherings in our home in our English garden or just having friends over for a 'glass' of wine. We also have a house on the Oregon Coast that we love and enjoy sharing with family and friends and that is also available for short term rental. We stay constantly busy with our 'projects' spending time with the grandchildren, try to fit some time in for a little golf and getting away for a few days from time to time. As hosts we would be happy to invite our guests for a tour of our historic home, sit with us and enjoy a glass of wine in front of the inglenook fireplace or on the patio in the garden. If our guests prefer to left alone we are sensitive to that as well. Our goal is to provide a welcoming, comfortable, and tasteful environment for our guests, and possibly develop new friendships. As guests we appreciate friendly, but sensitive to our privacy, hosts that provides a clean, comfortable environment that makes us feel at home. We also appreciate hosts that provide recommendations and insight into places to visit and things to do. As to a life motto we both think that, Live, Love, Laugh and Learn is how we approach life.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast Portland, Portland, OR, USA:
We love unique older homes and are very proud of our historic home because it has been preserved over the years. The only room we needed to redo was the 1960's kitchen which we remodeled back to a period kitchen which was featured on the cover of Old House Journal! Our apt. is decorated in a 1950's-60's decor with authentic metal cabinets, Formica table and chairs and furnishings.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The apt. has it's own private courtyard with access to our lovely English Gardens in the backyard. It has a very comfortable bed, a pantry and it's own washer/dryer. Guest Access Guests enter by going through the front iron gate to the front porch and then take the side gate to the side door in the courtyard. There is a lock box with a key to the apt. on the fence post if we are not home. Interaction with Guests We always try to greet our guests personally and give them a tour of the home and surroundings. Upon request, we are happy to provide our guests with suggestions for exciting places to visit, dine and/or play! We love meeting new friends! Laurelhurst is an historic old Portland neighborhood with beautiful homes, street trees and a huge park a few blocks away designed by the Olmsted's who designed Central Park in NYC. You will see how homes in Laurelhurst are each very different and unique from craftsmen with large porches to smaller bungalows with beautiful gardens. Public transportation is only a block away and great stores, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance. We like to entertain and will sometimes have friends over for a barbeque, dinner party or even a small party. Guests are always welcome to join us. However, guests do have their own private courtyard with privacy, a place to eat outside and enjoy the lovely pots of flowers.
