This classic PDX Foursquare was fully renovated in 2020, has three floors of living space, and plenty of room for everyone. Don’t miss this one!

This proud home has perched on this south-facing corner lot since 1909, and it was lovingly renovated in 2020 to include all the modern comforts and conveniences. The large bedroom suite in the basement has an exterior door and could easily become an AirBnB or rental unit. Low taxes, too.

Updates include a bright and spacious open kitchen, new electrical/plumbing, including a tankless gas water heater, fully electric HVAC system + large new windows, surfaces, and finishes.  It’s highly-efficient & climate-friendly with a perfect 10/10 Home Energy Score.

Crisp & well-maintained, the home lives large & it positively glows in afternoon light. The small-but-mighty lot packs a punch and provides options: plenty of south- and west-facing yard space for gardening, newly-poured concrete driveway, large covered front porch, and a private, fenced back patio.

Ideally located just blocks from the big trees and pickleball courts of Columbia Park, the views from the Willamette Bluffs & the Lombard business district, including New Seasons, Mock Crest Tavern and Green Zebra. Don’t let your clients miss this one!

Check out the listing and floorplan and then come take a tour. So much to love!

Principal Broker | OR


My clients are always my top priority, and my singular focus is to help them achieve their goals efficiently and effectively. This is the intention I set every day, and how I define success. As a trained and licensed (MA) attorney, I lead with a sharp attention to detail, a keen ear and focused voice, and an unwavering commitment to integrity, transparency and responsiveness. I’m a passionate advocate and I thrive when helping others succeed, and I’m always available to connect over a cup of coffee to learn how I can help make good things happen. Read my client reviews here. The choice to become a real estate broker was a joyful combination of two very different careers. Prior to moving to Portland in 2008, I was an environmental and title closing attorney in Massachustts. Since then, I've served as a program manager and fundraising professional for Portland-based non-profit organizations Friends of Trees, The Freshwater Trust and Ecotrust. While not scouting homes and helping clients, you can find me riding and racing bicycles, digging in the garden, practicing yoga, experimenting in the kitchen, and exploring the stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Please let me know how I can help you or someone you know. Thank you!
