Just Listed! BYOV | Bring Your Own Vision | NW Portland | 5 Acres!

By Lauren Hurley, March 26, 2021

17763 NW Emmaus Lane,

Portland, Oregon, 97231

Just beyond the little white church off Germantown Road at NW 185th, is a 5 acre parcel of land at the end of a lane, waiting for a dreamer. Incredibly diverse in its offerings, the acreage is nestled along Rock Creek and truly showcases all of what we love in Portland’s Northwest farm country. Abundant light and open field space, just look and you’ll discover an ideal, level plat to build your dream home. Whether modern or traditional or a mix of the two, you’ll cherish the quiet nature at the very end of NW Emmaus Lane. Listen for the owls, look up for the eagles and hawks, look down for tracks by the local elk. Start sketching. Start brainstorming. Curate your perfect hygge home. (Keep in mind, only 1 dream home is allowed on this acreage) Will you keep the mini apple orchard and prune n’ plant some more? Will there be a meditation grove tucked behind the neighboring pond, maybe a dozen Pinot grapevines across the gentle slope? Will you continue to perfect the trail leading to Rock Creek, just a jaunt below? Will you hang a rope swing–kids and dogs in toe?
A new sturdy shed and generous carport are waiting, to give you cover as you sketch and think and discover. What is your farm life dream, just twenty-some minutes from city center?

Lauren Hurley

Broker | OR


After spending a decade climbing the professional ladder of the Marketing industry, Lauren Hurley was in desperate need of vocational inspiration. So she did what most find daunting, if not impossible. She hopped down, and hunted for change. Fortunately for Lauren, she wouldn’t be starting on the first rung of the ladder that lay ahead. The daughter of a Broker, real estate had always been part of the conversation. The world of abandoned RMLS sheets, open house signs collected in the pouring rain and a fridge full of leftovers from Brokers Open Houses was all too familiar. So, while she didn’t always know it, Lauren was being trained by her Broker mom. By osmosis, she was learning how to negotiate, how to communicate and best, how to advocate for clients. While her passion for Portland, homes, history, architecture, design, and working with people had remained constant throughout her life, it took returning to the world of buying and selling homes for Lauren to realize just how perfectly her personal strengths and professional skill set aligned with being a Broker. Whether it’s negotiating and advocating on behalf of her clients, her vast knowledge of the city’s most idyllic neighborhoods, nooks and crannies, developing stunning and effective marketing campaigns, or consistently going above and beyond the call of duty, Lauren knows that superior client care is the result of perfecting every detail along the way. The joy she finds in seamlessly and successfully guiding buyers and sellers through one of the most significant emotional and financial decisions of their lives, has Lauren wishing she listened to her mother years ago. (But please don’t tell her that.) When it comes down to it, taking exceptional care of her clients isn’t only what Lauren does best, it’s what she loves to do. When she’s not meticulously critiquing the usage of serif vs. sans serif font, scarlet vs. crimson hues, or brightness vs. contrast and density, you’ll find Lauren taking Captain Salty the Wheaten Terrier on trails and along rivers around the city, collecting new vinyl records, tinkering with her ‘78 VW Bus, whipping up culinary treasures, or doing her best to imitate Serena on the court.
