Beautiful 1908 Craftsman home (Garden view apartment) in the heart of one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Portland! You will never stay in a nicer garden view unit! This is urban living at it's finest. Beautiful high historic end 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 Sabin, Alameda, Eliot, King, Grant Park, Sullivan's Gulch and Lloyd Center all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all!
Irvington neighborhood is on the National Register of Historic Places, and it's very central to everything in Portland. You can be anywhere in Portland within 10 minutes by car. A car is not absolutely necessary, walk to the MAX (transportation system - 10 minutes) 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 is a 7 minute drive or 9 minutes on the MAX.
Your basement apartment is almost 600 square feet and has been completely restored with the original hardware. The sofa folds down to sleep a total of 4. Most of these old Portland houses have levels below the main level, half in and half out of the ground.
This apartment is extremely well furnished, with everything you need to make your stay wonderful, giving you maximum comfort. Large windows ensure the unit is well lit, and a brand new hydroponic heating system ensures warmth on cold nights. Stainless steel appliances, travertine countertops, wireless internet, a 30" flat screen TV, DVD player and a Bose Stereo give you the luxuries that you have in your own home! Your own illuminated, private entrance on the side of the house guarantees you complete privacy.
The vast majority of the vacation rentals in Portland operate illegally, but this house has the coveted "Conditional Use" permit that the city requires in order to run a vacation rental for short term stays.
Our caretakers live onsite, tucked away in an apartment on the main level. Feel free to ask them for help at anytime.
You will get our personal recommendations for shopping, dining and activities and complimentary coffee and tea!
This is a beautiful 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 have to offer!
