New in 2017, airy, light, architect-designed studio apartment includes vaulted ceilings, tiled bath, kitchenette and private entrance. Nicely furnished for 1-2 adults. No pets.
Close-in, quiet, walkable neighborhood of mid-century bungalows with large yards. Trails, bike lanes, parks, transit nearby. Easy access to campus, downtown, Oregon beaches, mountains, wineries, the I-5 corridor.
Great base camp for explorers, academics and business travelers. Excellent wifi, workspace and provisions.
This "GI Bill" neighborhood was carved out of bean fields after WWII, with an eye on young veterans headed back to school.
My property, developed in 1950, features hardwood floors, coved ceilings, glass block details and a huge fenced yard. I bought the place in 2001 and have since undertaken several large projects.
* In 03-04 I extended the kitchen, captured the garage for a large, light library and added a front deck. This effort was led by architect/builder Dave Beardsley and really opened up the interior space and made it more welcoming, comfortable and private.
* Around the same time I worked with landscaper Joshua Smith to design a productive, beautiful and organically managed ecosystem for my outdoor spaces. The backyard now sports a small orchard, raised beds, tool sheds, a working swale with a bridge over it and a sunny little separate building variously used as a sewing room, art studio and rehearsal space. (Inquire if interested in using this locked and wired workspace for an additional fee.)
* In 2016 I hired architect Will Dixon to plan the addition I'm offering here on Airbnb. BioBuilders, out of Blue River, did the contract work, and my longtime handyman, Pat Clancy, helped me finish.
Accès des voyageurs
There's a new gated path of decomposed granite to guest quarters. This private entrance includes two steps and a small cedar deck which you're welcome to enjoy at will.
Nearby plantings -- including fabulous clematis vines, ferns and evergreen huckleberry -- were disturbed by last year's construction. I'm renovating that area now.
Guests may request access to the backyard patio and grill and to food and flower gardens. But you'll probably have to do some chores in exchange!
Additionally, the garden building described above may be available for use as a work/rehearsal space. We would negotiate an extra fee for that via the Special Offers function.

I'm happy to share info about favorite side trips and events, dining and shopping spots, community activities, etc. I also keep current maps and guides to area parks, trails, wineries, museums and attractions and maintain a keen interest in business and public affairs.
Let me know what you'd like to explore! I've probably got a few pointers and contacts.
No candles or incense. No guest pets.
Property already includes owner's two indoor/outdoor cats who are mostly aloof and have not been allowed in the new studio.
