4017 NE 64th AVE

Portland, OR 97213


Originally built in 1926, this classic Roseway bungalow stands proudly on one of the community’s most cherished streets. From the moment you approach the home you are greeted by its rich architectural details that include deep, noteworthy soffits, classic cedar lap siding, a stately hip roof and prominent front porch. As you enter you will find a floor plan with efficient and expansive spaces which boast refinished hardwoods, a wood burning fireplace, original millwork and an elegant flow to the formal dining room. The dining room itself acts as a nice axis point allowing you direct access to both the adjacent bedrooms and the kitchen. The kitchen’s layout is noteworthy for the size of the home and affords the next steward numerous opportunities to put their own finishing touches on the space.

The main floor is home to almost 1000 square feet and beyond the formal spaces and kitchen has a remodeled bathroom and two bedrooms that anchor the north end of the main floor.
Echoing the opportunities of the kitchen, the partially finished basement is home to over 900 square feet giving the next owner countless options for the spaces that have already been partitioned in an effective manner.  Beyond the walls of the basement and main floor is a gracious backyard with established trees, brick patio and cedar fencing.
With an address just 2 short blocks to Wellington Park and less than 1/2 a mile to countless Sandy Boulevard and Fremont Streets shops, this home is a rare find in one of Portland’s most sought after neighborhoods.

OFFERED AT $359,900

I grew up in a small college town in California where the backdrop was 1920’s bungalows, single level ranches and the San Gabriel Mountains. As a young boy I was an avid fort-builder and found myself drawn to architecture early. I can remember my mom dragging me through open houses in between soccer games on the weekend and watching my father tackle almost every home remodeling project under the sun. While I loved the surf, a love of the outdoors and 90’s grunge rock drew me north for college where I studied design and architecture. Summer and winter holiday trips back home to see my family gave me an excuse to stop in Portland where I would indulge in Montage mud pie and late night coffees at the Rimsky Korsakoffee House. Portland stuck with me and a couple years after college my wife Carrie and I moved here to start our family and my real estate career. Unlike many generational Realtors, I started from scratch in 2002. I would spend every day reading up on neighborhood histories, studying market trends and beefing up on my construction knowledge. A couple years prior, I had bought my first home and while my Realtor was friendly, I was surprised that their level of service had considerable room for improvement. From the beginning of my real estate career I have always been with my clients at every stage of the process with an unwavering attention to detail, deep rooted understanding of contract negotiations and Portland home construction. Soon my practice was almost exclusively referral based as the support of past clients helped me grow to be one of the top agents in my company. While accolades and awards have never served as motivation, I have always appreciated recognition by my peers and clients. Since 2005 I have been a Diamond-Platinum member of the Master’s Circle and in 2019 I was the Top Producer at Living Room Realty and one of less than 100 Realtors in the Portland metro awarded the Portland Monthly Five Star award for nine straight years. Accolades aside, my goal of improving my trade has never wavered. I received my developer’s license in 2013 and my contractor’s license three years later, not as capitalistic endeavors but with the goal of enriching the counsel I could give my clients. What was initially an academic endeavor to bolster my construction knowledge turned into a variety of projects for my clients ranging from the construction of new homes and ADUs, to the design of new kitchens and bathrooms and even the occasional restoration of a historic property. Today when I show my clients homes, I can point out the implications of 2x6 dimensional lumber in a third story attic, how to reconstruct a basement stairwell to be code compliant or why all parge coats aren’t created equal. When I am not picking a house apart for my clients, you can find me on the side of a soccer field cheering on one of my three children, with my wife in a ‘62 Grumman canoe on the Puget Sound or like my father, tackling remodeling projects at the hip roofed colonial I call home today.
