The top-down renovation, completed in 2012, establishes this spectacular 1899 Victorian Farmhouse as one of Portland's prime locations for travelers, professionals, romantics alike wanting two bedroom/1 bath housing with extraordinary amenities.
The Living Room, furnished with plush Italian leather couches, antiques, photo collection of Oregon's historical pictures provides an ideal gathering place for enjoying a game or movie (Direct TV with HBO, Showtime and expanded sports), napping or board games.
Joining the Living Room through a large archway the Dining Room table keeps a wide open connection to the fully equipped kitchen via pass-through and counter bar. Whether you're making drinks, preparing meals, or making sure no one looks at your scrabble letter this social layout is ideal for small groups who enjoy each other's company.
As well, the two bedrooms are on opposite ends of the floor plan allowing for maximum privacy.
The kitchen is thoroughly stocked to make meals from scratch, or for the quick, click and go/reheat leftover.
A fantastic feature of the front bedroom is that it opens through glass doors second story outdoor deck with seating for four as well as a natural gas infra red BBQ. Take your fresh salmon to the natural gas BBQ for summer grilling. For easy morning coffee and breakfasts or candlelight dinners its hard to find a better location to enjoy the surrounding city views as you watch live Portlandia go by in the streets below.
The apartment's full bathroom has everything you'll want for a soaking bath, shower, lots of lighting.
The back ¾ bedroom (no built-in closet) is adjacent to the bathroom, ideal for those who like the bathroom at arms length.
You have a private rear exit that takes you outdoors to the common backyard Jacuzzi hot tub, common BBQ area and sunken firepit seating area.
You can relax in the jetted hot tub or hang out in the sunken firepit dining area. Fenced and gated, this back yard is a wonderful place to socialize, catch up on or read a book. The wifi works throughout but is especially strong in the backyard for those who enjoy being outside when its nice.
From the covered front deck of the house you can watch the newly planted permaculture edible garden come to life.
Located in the Buckman neighborhood, you are right in the heart of all things Portlandia. Some of the local favorites include The Screen Door, Larylhurst Theatre and Pub, Matador, Eastburn for restaurants. Whole Foods is 8 blocks away, so is NE/SE 28th Ave where you'll have over a dozen eating drinking options.
Likewise, the common areas in the back will be shared with the myriad of travelers, professionals, outdoor enthusiasts, iconoclasts from the four corners of the planet,
Please know that we love animals, a lot. We don't allow pets on the property however. Even if yours is wonderful, quiet, adorable and irresistible without knowing it they attract critters we really don't want. So we just have to say a regrettable but firm no. Please don't try to appeal this. It breaks my heart to say no....Read more
