A Gorgeous Sunshine House in Mt Tabor

By Tracey Henkels, April 16, 2021

Congratulations to Greg and Kellie!

Our most thoughtful and diligent buyers just bought a gorgeous sunshine-yellow home near Mt Tabor! They are over the moon and we couldn’t be happier for them.

When it was time to start looking for a new home, my clients hoped to find a place in the Mt Tabor area. There is so much to love about one of Portland’s oldest neighborhoods but being able to walk to Mt Tabor Park and the Hawthorne district was what they liked most!

And after 14 years of living in NE Portland, they are so excited to change things up a bit and start a new chapter in SE Portland. Here’s to new beginnings!

The home itself has a gorgeous kitchen and dining room and the whole house abounds with character and charm. Plus the backyard is gorgeously landscaped with an artist’s studio to boot!

Congratulations to my dear clients and may the Sun shine on you wherever you go!
