Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom One Bathroom Centrally Located On Quiet Street

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.

About Emily Nance

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.

Emily Nance purchased this house in 2002

Why Emily Nance chose Eugene

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Cozy home with access to trails

  • 4 of 5

Great weekend spent with family in cozy home in local Eugene neighborhood. Access to trails only a few blocks away, 10 minute bike ride to campus and only 5 more to the stadium! Quality food and libations nearby to enjoy, local spots without the lines. Host kept open communication, left a nice bottle of wine and fresh harvest upon our arrival. Basic necessities met without the glammer. I would stay again! Thanks for opportunity.

A lovely home away!

  • 5 of 5

I am so happy we made this choice! The home was comfortable and equipped for all our needs. The weather was blazing hot... there were fans that keep us comfortable. The lush vegetable gardens made me feel right at home. For many years i've gone with a large group of friends to Eugene every June for the Black Sheep Gathering at the fairgrounds and we've always stayed in motels and hotels. This year, 4 of us tried HomeAway, loved our "home" and won't be going back to hotels. Hoping to stay with you for more than one night next year!! thanks, Emily, for your hospitality!!

Map

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.
