Beautiful 1908 Craftsman home(upper unit) in the heart of one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Portland. This is urban living at it's finest. Beautiful high end historic homes, gorgeous tree lined boulevards, wonderful people, and extremely close to many wonderful restaurants and shopping. This is one of the best neighborhoods in Portland without a doubt. The wonderful and energetic neighborhoods of Alameda, Beaumont-Wilshire, Concordia, Laurelhurst and Grant Park all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all! A car is not absolutely necessary, walk to the MAX(transportation system - 10 min.) and the bus line is around the corner. You are a 5-10 minute walk from literally 20 restaurants. 5 minutes walking to Lloyd Center and 8 minute walk to the Rose Quarter. Downtown/Pearl District is a 7 minute drive or 9 minutes on the MAX.
Your upper unit can be 1400 square feet and has been completely restored with the original hardware. This home has been extensively remodeled in every way. Old world style, wood framed, dual pane windows keep the unit cozy in winter and cool in the summer. There is a sunroom(6x9) with a futon mattress that can sleep two more for a total of 4. Why stay in a hotel when you can live like a local?
No details have been spared with respects to furnishings, this is a real upscale home with all the accoutrements you would expect(or hope to have) in your own home. Viking range, stainless steel appliances, 32" flat screen TV, Bose stereo, Francis Francis X1 espresso machine, wireless internet, stainless steel cookware and handmade copper pots I brought back from the north of Italy!
The backyard is available at the exclusive discretion for the guests of this unit. It comes complete with an herb garden(for your cooking pleasure) pergola and built in stainless steel BBQ and sink. Enjoy Portland's weather in complete privacy. You will get our recommendations for acvities and complimentary coffee and tea.
The unit is extremely plush as I guarantee you will want to come back again. This is our part time home, and we absolutely love it. We guarantee you will feel the same. Come and be part of our family as you sample all that Irvington Neighborhood and Portland has to offer!...Read more

I was fortunate enough to come across this wonderful vacation rental. From the time we arrived, we felt at home and with all the creature comforts of our own home. Comfort and beautiful decor with a nice full kitchen. We also Bbq'd in the fully landscaped backyard.I could not believe all we received for the price.The neighborhood is beautiful and has very convenient access to food, transportation and downtown entertainment.When I visit PDX, I will know exactly where I will be staying. Thanks again!

For 4 days I felt like I lived in the center of Portland. The rental was clean, beautifully furnished and had the perfect location. The backyard to the house was peaceful and perfect for a meal or to relax with friends. I don't think you can find a better spot or a better deal. I could live there all year. I would stay there again and again!
