Property description

A cozy and comfortable 1950's house equipped with just enough to meet your needs and hopefully a little bit more. It's been updated but is also still fairly 'old school' and simple. The home was a treasure for us to live in for a decade and as our family grew we moved to a larger home, leaving this one with lots of happy memories. Hardwood Floors, Fireplace and raised garden beds in the front and back yards. A nice sized driveway for parking as well as street parking. Easy access to all kinds of shopping, transportation and escapes further out of town.

Car: Not Necessary

Our home is located in a quiet neighborhood in the lower blocks of the South Eugene Hills. It has easy access to all activities Eugene has to provide. It is easy to find from Interstate 5, 10 min. off the Interstate. Another 5-10 minutes from anywhere in Eugene Proper. Only one hour from both mountains and beaches. It is a great family home with a splendid location.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I'm a happily married Massage Therapist with two beautiful boys. I'm well educated, well traveled and welcoming to guests. I'm a local from a small town in the Coastal Range and have lived all over Oregon. I graduated from UO in 1994 and graduated from Lane Community College's Massage School in 2004. I love the great outdoors, horseback riding, biking, hiking and having fun in water. I love reading and chatting with friends. I have two, a cat, a guinea pig, and a parekeet.

Why the Owner Chose Southeast Eugene, Eugene, OR, USA:
We chose this home for its charmingly simple and solid build. While living in the house, we drove our car only when leaving town. At all other times it was biking or walking, and quite convenient at that! The house has great proximity to all the things our town provides, campus, sporting events, parks, bike trails, dog parks, restaurants, shopping, river walks, you name it. It is on a quiet street and has lots of yard to play with.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a home set up to be as predictable as a nice hotel room and as hospitable as a home. The kitchen is spacious, versatile and the hub for gathering. The front room is welcoming with cozy couches, a fireplace and TV (sorry no cable just dvd player). The home has a lovely view of willow trees out the front windows and the private yard out of the back windows. The garage and shop house all of our 'urban homestead' tools and also serves as our bike depot. You are free to use the washer and dryer if need be.
