This delightfully dialed-in Montavilla home is stylish and move-in ready. The cheery, bright yellow door welcomes you into a lovely light-filled living space with hardwood floors, tasteful colors, and updated light fixtures. The large L-shaped living room area overlooks a beautiful front garden that’s cheerful even on a rainy day when water trickles down the rainchains at the front porch overhang.

The updated kitchen adjoins the dining area and features a tiled floor and stainless appliances, including a recently installed gas range. The kitchen window has a view to the backyard filled with seasonal plants and trees. Enjoy outdoor living and entertaining in this spacious fenced yard with concrete patio and pea gravel patio with a firepit. Start your foody garden in the raised beds and store your garden gear in the cute tool shed.

There’s a bedroom on the main floor and 2 more upstairs, all with hardwood floors and good-sized closets. The upstairs bedrooms have adorable window alcoves that face the front yard—one of them has a built-in window seat with wall-mounted bookshelves nearby. Current owners admit both their kitty and their baby will miss this cozy snuggle spot.

The laundry area is in the unfinished basement which is clean and freshly painted with nice ceiling height. There’s plenty of room for storage and whatever else you envision for the space.

Buyers will appreciate that the home has been nicely maintained and updated. The home exterior was professionally painted in 2020 and new air-conditioning was installed then as well. All appliances will stay with the home. The home has a gas furnace, double-paned vinyl replacement windows and insulation has been added in the attic. There is a radon mitigation system already installed in the home.

Cheri Harney



After growing up an Army brat and traveling the world, Cheri Harney came to Oregon for college and never left. As a 30+ year resident of Portland, Cheri appreciates the unique flavor, culture, and personality of Portland’s neighborhoods. She and her family settled in Eastmoreland 20 years ago and continue to love the wonderful sense of community they’ve found there. After 20 years in the same house, Cheri is always envisioning the next home renovation and garden project. As our families grow and change, our homes need to keep evolving with us! A graduate of the University of Oregon, Cheri had a successful career in advertising and marketing before transitioning to the real estate industry. She combines first hand knowledge with exemplary research skills, leading friends and neighbors to joke that they don’t need to shop around for their new purchases and home projects: they just call Cheri because she’s already sweated the details. As an exceptional communicator and negotiator, with a creative vision and detail-oriented mindset, she can help you sell your house or find your perfect home . . . your new living room. Weekends find Cheri working in her flourishing garden, wine tasting with her husband and exploring new hole-in-the-wall happy hours across Portland.
