Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: I am a local restaurant owner and love all that Portland has to offer from the downtown foodie scene to the incredible outdoor adventures. My boyfriend, Brian, and I have both grown up here and know what makes Portland truly unique. We are lifers! We recently bought this duplex and have remodeled it to allow the original charm to, once again, flourish. We hope you will come stay with us and pop in to our apartment (below!) and say hi!

Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn, Portland, OR, USA:
I am in love with older homes! I purchased this duplex in order to restore its original glory and live in it myself. We have remodeled and lived in the upstairs apartment (the VRBO) and currently live downstairs and love the look, feel and craftsmanship of this house. We chose this house because we love being close to downtown and all that Portland has to offer. This duplex offered the ease of living/working downtown whilst also avoiding the common problems that come with. The neighborhood is friendly, quiet and kids play in the streets yet it is only a quick walk to enjoy the more lively nightlife on Division st.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
From the moment you walk up this house will embrace and surprise you. Made by a craftsman in 1908 for his beloved daughter, it has a classic Dutch Colonial style. Enjoy the little touches like a small patio off of your kitchen or the clawfoot tub.
