New modern bright & open cottage. Lots of windows, radiant heat floors, AC, + outdoor shower under a cedar tree. Amazing walking neighborhood close to eateries, bars, a bakery, brewery + two great markets & one of the cities most cherished parks.
The house is open & inviting. With one large open gathering space, it is clean, comfortable, artful & easy. Full of natural light with a festive feeling, great for entertaining. On route to Laurelhurst park, it's great for people watching from the front porch.
Upstairs there is a king bed in one room and a queen in the other. The downstairs sofa opens to a queen sleeper as well. Upstairs bath has a walk in shower and the outdoor shower is walk in too : ) The kitchen has a gas range, dishwasher and is well stocked with all the amenities you might need to cook and bake most anything, including blender, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, etc. The house is also equipped with it's own washer/dryer. Both bedrooms have skylights. You have your own private garden patio area with gas grill. Exciting news! the house is on the 2016 American Institute of Architects tour. Check it out at AIA Portland!
The whole house is yours, including the private outdoor garden area with table, chairs, string lights, gas grill & outdoor shower!
We live in a separate house right next door and so are around for the quick 'hello' or a tip or two on what to do if you like.

Hi there, we are Michele, Mike & Carly. We've lived here in Portland for 24 years. We love this place. In our free time, we like to bike in town and hike around, we enjoy cooking, spending time with friends and just getting out and about in the city. We love to see live music and live near a couple of great venues. We dig our neighborhood, most anything we want to do is a quick walk or short drive away. Mike's a general contractor who is remodeling Portland's older homes one by one. Michele is a life & business coach, working with many of Portland's creative, independent professionals. We love to travel, near and far whenever our daughter's school schedule allows. When we are around, we're happy tell you about our favorite spots, if you'd like personal suggestions.
