Just Listed in Milwaukie: Tongue in Groovy!

By Olivia Rush, May 20, 2023

Tongue in groovy! This stunning 1979 contemporary home is the cat’s meow. Find your inner peace in your own private retreat or invite the whole neighborhood over. This home is situated on 0.38 acres on a quiet street in Oatfield and offers space galore both inside and out.

Soaring vaulted cedar ceilings and beautiful wood trim set the welcoming tone of this entertainer’s dream. A darling original kitchen with a large peninsula opens to an inviting dining space and features vintage pendant lights. The various levels of this home allow you to branch out around the focal point of the spacious sunken living room, with 18’ ceilings at its highest point. Grand windows invite the outdoors in and cast natural light throughout the heart of the home. The family room off the main living room offers a second space around which to gather, and includes a wet bar and exterior entry to a side patio.

Follow the skylights down the stairs to the owner’s suite, complete with vast walk-in closet, swanky bathroom with jetted soaking tub, built in dresser and bed stand, and large storage space. Off the main living room you’ll find a second bedroom with sliding doors that lead to a deck overlooking the property, as well as stairs that lead up to a large loft with its own deck and additional storage. A second full bathroom w/ skylight and a storage/laundry room round out the main level.

The large property is fenced and private, partially shaded by tall trees. Cross over the creek and enjoy a moment to yourself in the screened in gazebo. The long driveway would easily fit an RV or boat, and the detached 2 car garage offers more space. Updates include fresh interior/exterior paint, newer high efficiency gas furnace + AC, newer water heater, a 50-year presidential composition shingle roof, fresh landscaping and newer fencing.

2 bd + loft | 2 ba | 2046 sf | 0.38 ac | c. 1979

MLS: 23331780 | Offered at $589,000

As your trusted guide through the buying or selling process, you can expect me to customize my services to your specific goals and preferences, much like I did for my students during my ten years as an educator. My clients’ goals vary. A couple retiring to the Big City after 30 years on 22 acres. A woman purchasing her first home independently. A couple upsizing to support a growing family. Two friends pooling their resources to make their first investment possible. A couple navigating a divorce and the sale of their home. A refugee family with limited English setting down roots in this country. Deaf investors looking to maximize profit on their flip.  A couple selling the home of their daughter who has lost her battle to cancer. A family relocating from across the country and buying sight-unseen.  These situations all require unique, dynamic, and holistic approaches. Everyone has different needs, and it is my top priority to meet my clients where they are. For me, real estate is not transactional. It is deeply personal and inevitably life-changing. While each client requires a tailored strategy, my work ethic is unwavering. With me you can always expect organization, tenacity, responsiveness, dedication, and hustle. A gatherer of resources, a communicator of all options and possible outcomes. As your advocate, I will be brutally honest so you know what to expect. A skilled negotiator, I’ll consider every angle with your dreams and goals in mind. My clients often end up feeling like family. I am honored they trust me enough to return to me as their needs change and refer me to their friends, family, and communities. What are your real estate goals and dreams? Call or text me so we can meet to discuss your vision.   Curious about the home-buying process in Portland? Click here to sign up for one of my free The How To Buy A House Class™ classes!
