Your Newest Woodlawn Neighbor

By Living Room Realty, December 27, 2019

Congratulations to Lizzi! She bought her first home and in a hoppin’ location where she is sure to make a buck over the years- in Woodlawn.

She handled business and landed in one of the sweetest pockets in Portland where neighborhood gems are a’ plenty. We’re talking Ranch Pizza (my personal favorite), The Oregon Public House (bites and drinks with a cause- philanthropub, which basically makes this a need based stop), Tamale Boy, Hi-Wheel Fizzy Wine Co, Woodlawn Coffee, Good Neighbor Pizzeria, Firehouse (yum), and Breakside Brewery (happy hour magic + brews, heyo).

She’s got a low maintenance 1981 built ranch with 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, a double car garage, and a hard to find, big ole’ .13 acre lot where her beloved Penne pup can run about.

Perks of an 80’s ranch, you ask? A good foundation with accessible plumbing, a single level layout that will be approved by generations for years to come (especially while Portland is short on space and building UP instead of out- see many single story new builds out there? Didn’t think so) and likely some recently updated systems (think about the lifecycle of a 30 year roof, a 15 year water heater, and a 20 year furnace). The list continues! No underground storage tank to worry about (because of no oil heat), and a non-recalled electric panel that one might find in the 50’s-70’s houses. Sometimes those Federal pacific panels show through the end of the 70’s but come 1980 you’re likely in the clear. Besides all of that, it’s a real cutie. Play with paint and light fixtures in a house like this and you can really shake up some new age vibes.

I got a friend out of the deal, and she got a home that she will fill with love. A real win/win. Here’s a photo of her house, her beautiful baby dog, and us because clearly we are excited.
