About the Property

Three bedroom two bath house close to OHSU, PSU, and downtown.

This house is for LEASE for 6 months or more. The View Point House offers lovely furnishings and is close to everything. Being just 1 ½ miles from downtown, you can walk everywhere. Nestled in SW Portland, Lair Hill is a wonderful low-key neighborhood with views of Mt. Hood and the Willamette River since it’s up in the West Hills. Within minutes you can walk down the hill east to the Willamette River to a multi-use path that connects to miles of trails. Or you can walk west, up the hills and go for a hike/run on the extensive Marcum Trails. Being so close to downtown, it is a quick trip across the river to NE, SE or N Portland. It is a great place to stay if you are working at OHSU.

You can walk or take transit to downtown, Oregon Health and Science University or Portland State University. There is a bus stop 2 blocks away.

View Point House is right off of SW Corbett Avenue which is home to several restaurants and cafés. The two closest are Elephants Deli which serves ready-to-go gourmet breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is perfect for the busy traveler. There is also Ross Island Grocery and Deli. he closest grocery store is Zupans on SW Marcum. You may consider scheduling a wellness appointment or two. Whether you are interested in chiropractic work, massage, acupuncture, naturopathy, ayurvedic medicine, or life coaching, it all exists within a few blocks of the House.

The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, living rooms, dining room and 2 kitchens. The living-dining-kitchen areas are all open and there is a fire place upstairs. The bedrooms have carpet, 2 queen beds, one single bed, dressers and large closets with extra storage bins. The bathrooms have tiled floors, a tub and shower and lots of storage. The home is very comfortable for three people, especially if each person prefers their own room. There is a maximum of three people for this home and all occupants must be on the lease.

There is a stairwell outside the upstairs kitchen door which leads to the spacious backyard. The stacking washer/dryer is in this space as well.

I have worked hard to ensure the apartment is fully stocked and has all the necessities. There are some basic amenities to get you started (spices, toilet paper, etc.) to help you ease into the home, but these items will not be restocked. They are just a gift. The apartment is very spacious and charming, has lots of lighting and tasteful furniture.

View Point House has a lovely backyard full of trees. Parking is abundant and is on the street. There is a lovely church next door which adds extra privacy to the backyard.

I have made the home as comfortable as I possibly could. I know you will enjoy your stay should View Point House be the right location for you. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2013

About: I love Portland! It has been Lori's home, the owner, for 18 years. Before that she lived in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, go Steelers! She is a Realtor and owner of Lane Realty Works.

Why Homestead, Portland, OR, USA:
View Point House is a great house! Everyone who stays there loves it. It is so close to everything. It's in a quiet neighborhood, very close to nature and a hop-skip-jump from everything cool Portland has to offer. Lori bought the house because of its proximity to the river and trials. You will not be disappointed. It is a great place to stay while you check out the area. If you are considering relocating to Portland or interested in an investment home, please let me know and we'll set up a tour for you.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lori fell in love with this home at first site. The home is old for Portland, built in 1880; it was moved to this location in the 1940s when eminent domain was used to build a nearby highway. It has been completely remodeled since then and has a lovely feeling to it. It is a happy home. Both units offer open floor plans, lots of light and share a fabulous back yard. The walnut trees are inviting and are a wonderful backdrop for squirrel watching.
