Dream Home in NE Portland!

By Shelley Lucas, June 29, 2021

For a young couple with a growing family, this home was the dream come true the minute they walked in the door. They new they needed a bigger home, but they wanted to stay in the same neighborhood, and they really wanted an old Portland traditional home. This home offered them the perfect combination of vintage charm and thoughtful updates. With a newly remodeled open kitchen that looks out to expansive dining room, exquisite woodwork details, and hardwood floors throughout, this gem met all their criteria. There is a primary bedroom with dual closets, fireplace, and office area, 2 more big bedrooms and full bath all upstairs. Plus a remodeled basement with a bedroom, laundry room, full bathroom, and playroom/media room. Additional features include high ceilings, crown moldings, built-ins, 2 fireplaces, and a big fun backyard with deck perfect for relaxing and entertaining.
