Welcome to our cozy little Sellwood Moreland cottage.
Built in 1926, it's located in the wonderful historic Sellwood Moreland neighborhood, voted Best Family Neighborhood by Portland Monthly magazine.
We’ve owned this house for 22 years and have lovingly restored it with vintage decor that we’ve collected over the years, but it also has all the modern amenities you need like a dishwasher, microwave oven, washer & dryer and an iPod docking station.
The front porch is charming. You can sit there in the evenings and say hello to neighbors as they walk by. French doors open to the back yard with a porch, seating and a large grassy area where your dog can wander or kids can play. The entire backyard is fenced in.
Sellwood Moreland is an historic neighborhood that was once its own city before becoming part of Portland. It has its own post office, grocery stores and even our own movie theater showing first run movies. It’s a great place for shopping, walking and biking. The house is just a few short blocks from great restaurants, which we’ve outlined on the "insiders guide",retail shops, tennis courts and a dog park adjacent to the Willamette River.
Just one block from the house and you’re on Sellwood Blvd, which has a beautiful view of downtown Portland and the Willamette River. It also overlooks the 163-acre Oaks Bottom Wildlife Refuge. Over 185 species call it home. Between the Refuge and the Willamette River is the 111 year old Oaks Amusement Park, known as the Coney Island of the NW. It's the longest continually running amusement park in the country and includes a great old skating rink with a floating wood floor. Eagles and osprey nest along the river and in the mornings before the park opens you can walk along the river and see them fly above. A quiet and beautiful way to start the day.
On your return to the house you'll see the largest outdoor hand painted mural in the country on the side of Portland Mausoleum building overlooking Oaks Bottom.
Like to kayak or canoe? You can rent both right across the river in Johns Landing. It’s a quick ten minute ride across the Sellwood Bridge and down Macadam Avenue to the Portland Kayak Company.
