In the middle of Oregon horse country and on the edge of Oregon wine country, Wilsonville is within 30 minutes of the Woodburn Outlet Mall, Downtown Portland, the Oregon Zoo, Portland International Airport, the state capitol in Salem, and the Columbia River gorge. Within an hour you can be at Mt. Hood or in just a little longer, on the Oregon coast. Within 2 miles, you can walk, bike, or drive to numerous restaurants and bars from coffee bistros and fast food to fine dining. Pharmacies, groceries, department stores, Frys Electronics, the Family Fun Center, and many more retail shops are also available in Wilsonville. World of Speed is now open in Wilsonville for racing fans to enjoy.
If you are traveling for genealogy or history, we are very knowledgeable about our pioneer cemeteries, museums, and heritage attractions. The Aurora Colony is located just 5 miles away with many antique shops and museums. One of the most recent trees to gain status as an Oregon State Heritage Tree, the R.V. Short Fir, stands just outside this farmhouse.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: Susan and Charlotte grew up in the other house on the property. Susan and her husband, Pat, live there with Charlotte. The three of us took on the challenge of moving this little house in order to save it from demolition. In the process we have learned a great deal about architectural restoration and we love to talk DIY with anyone who is interested! Talk about an adventure in moving!

Why the Owner Chose Wilsonville, OR, USA:
This little farm house, originally located in what is now Villebois, was slated for demolition when we decided to move it 1.5 miles to sit next to its sister house, of similar vintage and style that Susan and Charlotte grew up in. It is an example of the best of 1941 craftsmanship in a modest farm home. In the process of moving it we made the updates necessary to offer all the amenities and technology that any discerning business traveler has come to expect.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
If you have an interest in architectural history or renovation we are sure you will enjoy this property, but even if you do not know a salt box from a log cabin, you will enjoy the privacy, comfort, amenities, location, and access this property has to offer.
