Green Acres Is The Place To Be!

By Chad Meier, April 7, 2018

Just a stone’s throw away from city conveniences, yet perched high atop rural Jenne Road, this charming Pleasant Valley home will provide comfort, serenity, and the opportunity to utilize the full potential of its 2+ acres however its new owners may see fit!

Take in the surroundings from your choice of the many natural settings the property provides. Lounge on the wraparound deck and patios. Gaze at the midnight stars while soaking in your large outdoor spa. Walk up the stone steps and past the garden to your own private paradise dotted with Douglas fir and cedar, various orchard fruits, an open field, weathered sheds and fantastical forts. And this is just half of the flora-fauna equation! Perhaps you envision a true “homestead” inhabited by Llamas and Chickens and Goats (oh my)? The possibilities certainly appear to be boundless, not just for the urban farmer, but for anyone who may enjoy a little bit of extra space between themselves and the neighbors.

Lovingly maintained by the same family for over 40 years, the interior of the home offers up its own special charms as well. On the main level; an open kitchen adjoined by a great room for dining and family recreation is warmed by a modern wood stove. The generous sized living room anchored by a new fireplace. Separate study, mudroom, & pantry areas serve the various needs of all members of the family. As does a well appointed bathroom and dedicated laundry area. For the handyperson, an abundant workshop is attached to the rear of the home. And at the end of the long day, relax by retreating to your own private indoor sauna. A stay at the Edgefield Hotel has nothing on this place!

Upstairs you’ll find another bathroom and three unique bedrooms, with the master adorned by period correct wood paneling, a walk-in closet, and a tidy project table inside. And what better way to kickstart a night of pleasant dreams than by peering out into the night sky and the territorial views of your property from the garden window at the head of the bed.

Original structure built as a barn in 1953 and renovated into a unique house in the 1970’s, this special property has so much to offer. New Milgard windows in 2011. Leafguard gutters. Extensive landscaping. Automatic sprinkler system. Efficient supplemental electric heat. Detached two vehicle garage. Onsite sewage system recently serviced. Public city water in addition to a functioning well. Adjacent to an upscale housing development. Gated point of entry at the rear of the property leads to additional parking at the front. Recently paved driveway.

A rare find and unique opportunity to own so much for so little!

Hello, I’m Chad: Licensed Real Estate Broker, native Oregonian, photography aficionado, lover of old houses, friend to all animals, and powered by analytical data. As a member of the National, Oregon and Portland Metropolitan Associations of Realtors, I'm proud that my profession allows me to use the tools I've acquired over the past 20+ years (client advocacy, sales & marketing, conflict resolution, et al.) to help people on a daily basis. Bottom line… I love the work! Through personal experience, I understand that buying or selling a home is more than just a business transaction; In fact, it can often be a life changing event! This is why I’m dedicated to providing exceptional service for my clients when it’s time for them to make their move. On the listing side; I believe that every home, no matter how modest or grand, deserves to make the best possible first impression on a would-be buyer. This is why I’m aligned with our area's preeminent independent real estate brokerage (Living Room Realty) to offer every property the most compelling & relevant marketing available. It also means that I’ll never represent your home online with a smartphone picture ;^) On the buying side; I personally work with every client - no handing you off to a junior team member of a team - to ensure that we work toward your goals together and don’t fall prey to some of the pitfalls that buyers can face in today's heavily weighted market. In short, I can help you win! Above all else, I pledge to be a strong advocate for my client’s interests and promise to work relentlessly to help them achieve their real estate goals. After all, I believe that if you’re not left with an amazing experience, I haven’t done my job. Speaking personally, I’ve been connected to this great city and its surrounding areas since childhood. Most recently, my family (wife Shawn, son Jakob, mother Glenna, and mutts Juno & Dizzy) have lived in the vibrant Sellwood-Moreland neighborhood for the past 14 years. When not at my desk or in the field helping clients, you’ll likely find me trying to capture a compelling scene behind my camera lens, playing basketball wherever I can find a pickup game, or combining these two passions by photographing my son’s high school basketball team in action (GO WARRIORS!). And on occasion, you may even find me at any number of our city's finer dining establishments, searching high and low for a bartender who knows the recipe for a perfect Roman Holiday ;^) Whether you have a plan to buy or sell (or simply need to develop one), please feel free to contact me. I look forward to understanding your goals and helping you achieve them! I can be reached at 503-709-9600 -or- Chad@PortlandHomeBase.com
