Welcome home Hendersons!

By Robin Hakeman, June 17, 2019

The Henderson family are good friends of ours and have wanted to move to Lake Oswego for a few years. While we focused their search mainly around Westlake, we looked at homes all over Lake Oswego. Their dream home ended up being one that they initially passed on because of the extensive dark oak millwork. Luckily, a similar home is on the market with all of the millwork painted white. This home feels light and bright and fits their taste well, however the layout isn’t exactly what they need. After seeing the white millwork, the Hendersons were able to visualize what that might look like in the other home. The home was taken off the market briefly to have new quartz counters, new appliances and updated light fixtures installed. As soon as the home hit the market again, the Hendersons had a renewed vision and swooped in to make an offer right away!

The layout of this home is just what the family is looking for. With a large open kitchen, pantry and formal dining room there is plenty of room to entertain guests. Upstairs the large master suite, 3 additional bedrooms and a bonus room with a 3rd full bathroom is perfect for their two children and family who visit from the mid-west.

The Henderson’s plan to brighten up their new space with white millwork. Once they move in, they plan to thank those neighbors whose home helped them visualize what could be! Welcome to Lake Oswego Hendersons!
