Forget the view — this home has a root cellar and solar panels!

By Erika George & Kari McGee, December 22, 2021

CONGRATULATIONS to Thea and Angel who just closed on their first home together as a couple!

Thea and Angel are lovely souls with many interests and talents! Among them are 3D printing, beekeeping, historic car restoration and soap making! We were tasked to find them a house that was just right for their varied hobbies and skills. When we found this darling Tudor in Gresham, we all pinched ourselves, as it was truly “just right.” It has a great floor plan with an option for one-level living and ample space for entertaining and all of their varied hobbies. It has a modern open kitchen, a basement with a root cellar, a large garage for shop work, an orchard for bees, and raised beds with an irrigation system for gardening. AND, best of all, it boasts a wonderful back deck that Thea and Angel can use at the end of the day to relax and take stock of their handiwork.  Did we mention that there are solar panels on the home and garage which allows them to sell back to the grid during most months?  What a jewel!

Congratulations Thea and Angel — we are so happy for you and can’t wait to experience the products of your talents! Do you have some very specific needs when it comes to your next house?  We can help you find the perfect one — Call us!
