QUIET RETREAT AT THE HEART OF INNER SE PORTLAND, NEAR DOWNTOWN

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Portland - City Cedar

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

A classic mid century brick home in the heart of some of the best restaurants and night life in Portland. The comfortable home sleeps six with a sunny patio to enjoy, and peaceful yard with a giant Deodora cedar tree.

You’ll be located at the junction of 28th and Belmont on a picturesque residential street, with easy access to the Belmont district, 28th Avenue “Restaurant Row”, Burnside, Hawthorne and Division St/Clinton districts. If you are comfortable walking, cycling, and taking the bus you don’t need a car. The bus 15 is a block away, and takes you downtown, and to the Pearl District and NW 23rd, and connects with the light rail system (MAX), in the other direction it takes you to Mt Tabor Park. It takes about 45 minutes to walk the 2.2 miles to downtown’s Pioneer Courthouse Square along a pleasant route. Laurelhurst Park and Colonel Summers Park are each within 10 blocks. Whole Foods, Zupans, and Safeway grocery stores are all within 10 blocks.

The specifics ... this mid century duplex was designed by the architect who lived next door, for his son. The units are side by side, and sited on a peaceful 14,000 sq ft lot. The large yard provides a peaceful retreat in the heart of the city. The current owners live in the other half of the duplex, and are happy to be a resource for information and advice on your stay in Portland. The home is approximately 1500 sq ft with 2 bedrooms on the main floor, one has a queen sized bed, the other a double. Upstairs is a bedroom with 2 twin sized beds. The bathroom is on the main floor opposite the bedrooms, and at the base of the stairs from the upstairs bedroom. The main floor has hardwoods throughout. The living room has a couch and several chairs and opens to a sunny front porch sitting area. The dining room has a table that sits six. There is a flat screen TV with network and internet TV. A stereo system hooks to your computer or MP3 player. WiFi is available. There’s a full kitchen with all the basics to cook for your self but with all the fun food choices in walking distance you’ll be tempted to eat out. The basement provides bike storage, and a laundry area. There is central gas forced air heat. No air conditioning, but window ventilation keeps the home comfortable on all but a few days of the year.

Matt grew up in Portland, and after traveling and exploring, we are so happy to be back!

Laurie and Matt purchased this house in 1999

This is a great spot to live, and to appreciate the best of what Portland has to offer. Once we are home at the end of the work day we can ditch our cars and walk to everything we need, great grocery shopping, seasonal farmers markets, parks, restaurants, bakeries and dessert spots, bars, and nightlife. There is more to do in our neighborhood than we have time to enjoy.

What makes inner Portland so walkable to amenities is the density. Most homes are tightly grouped with small yards. We have the luxury of large yard, anchored by a giant Deadora Cedar, allowing a place to enjoy the outside just out the back door.

NICE HOME, GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 out of 5
This rental was exactly as I expected. It worked out perfectly for us as we wanted something close to downtown but not too far from the airport. There were plenty of great places to eat/drink within walking distance. The house was clean and comfortable. It was a little hot upstairs, but we had an unseasonably hot week for our visit. I would certainly stay here again.

A VERY COMFORTABLE HOME IN AN EXCELLENT LOCATION.

  • 5 out of 5
My family and I stayed here for more than 3 months - it was very much our home-away-from home. Matthew and Laurie were very hospitable, and quick to offer help when we needed it. The house is spacious and comfortable, and worked well for our 4 children with its large upstairs room and huge basement/laundry. The neighborhood is fantastic, with endless restaurants, bars and shops within easy walking distance, and also a short stroll from Laurelhurst Park.
When we return to Portland, we definitely hope to stay here again, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the house to anyone.

PRIVATE, BUT CLOSE TO EVERYTHING

  • 5 out of 5
We were really pleased with our choice to stay at this property. The owners were responsive and friendly but took great care to respect our privacy and space. We found the property very well cared for and much larger than we had pictured. With lots of shopping and dining steps away, we barely used our car. It is a very quiet property, and we frequently slept with the windows open. Huge trees on the yard. The only negative feature was the uncomfortable living room couch, which in our opinion renders the room less usable than we would have liked. Other than that, we were pretty delighted!

Owner's Response: We are always trying to improve the quality of our home and have been able to upgrade the furniture in the living room. We recently have purchased two designer quality couches that are comfortable additions to the seating choices in the living room.

SPACIOUS, COOL, COMFORTABLE

  • 5 out of 5
This is well constructed, well-designed, easy-to-live-in mid-century semidetached house that is very comfortable, quiet, and clean. All was spotless upon arrival. Well-stocked with sheets, towels, kitchenware. The owners live next door and were highly responsive all our minor requests. Very fast WiFI Internet and full cable-TV service. Clean, up-to-date kitchen. Our stay was during a heatwave and the house remained cool thanks to lovely shade trees all around. We also made great use of the back yard and its shaded Adirondack chairs. House has unusual acoustical privacy: very thick plaster walls and good doors, so that noise does not travel room to room—even the sound of a crying baby. Location ideal for walking to Belmont, Hawthorne, 28th St., Stark, Burnside, Laurelhurst Park. There are some passersby on the street, which might disturb a light sleeper if bedroom windows were open, and laundry is in a basement accessed only by going outside, but neither of these factors bothered us. We would be thrilled to rent this house again should life bring us back to Portland.

Owner's Response: We have done some remodeling and now can provide interior access to the basement laundry room. No more going out in the rain!

COMFORTABLE AND CONVENIENT!

  • 5 out of 5
The owners were very helpful with information and activities of things to do in Portland. The property is set up with all the amenities of home for cooking and enjoying your time at "home" : ipod connection for your own music, TV and chairs for enjoyment outside. Off street parking is provided for safety. The neighborhood is quiet and convenient to shopping and restaurants. You are able to walk in either direction to find grocery stores and restaurants. As mentioned before, it is perfect for walking, jogging and biking.

This property is a true gem. The interior is clean and filled with light. The yard is lush and well-kept. The neighborhood is filled with fantastic cafes and interesting shops. There are great parks nearby for a jog among the trees or a trip to the playground with kids. It's easy to navigate the local neighborhood and the larger city by public transportation. The owners are a delight. My only sadness is that once others discover this property, it won't be available for us the next time we come to Portland! Truthfully, I cannot recommend this property highly enough.
