This beauty embodies the Scandanavian concept of hygge by giving comfort and joy with its clean, bright and versatile living spaces. Exposed beams, hardwood floors and Jøtul woodstove give this immaculately-maintained 1923 bungalow a graceful elegance that warmly embraces you when you walk through the front door. This is the perfect home base for all of your adventures with tons of storage, generous work and shop spaces, and easy access close to everything.

The house lives large with over 2100sf of functional living space on three levels. Additionally, there is a 550+sf two-level, heated studio/shop in the backyard (accessible from both the side street and driveway). Fully-upgraded in 2009, this is an amazing space for immediate use as a studio, home office/business, or guest house above, and a shop/garage/storage below. Solid future potential as an ADU oasis.


The main level features great flow through three open, yet distinct, spaces – formal dining room, living room and a woodstove sitting room, as well as a large kitchen and a tidy, pristine bathroom. The kitchen leads to the lower level through a wide stairway to another living space, as well as two bedrooms, all with garden views, and an updated full bath/laundry room featuring a heated tile floor. The upper level has a bedroom + bonus room – office, yoga room, hobby space  – with lots of closet nooks for storage. There are so many storage spaces peppered throughout the house.

It’s ideally-located in a quiet neighborhood on a corner lot with ample space on all four sides. Sunlight is abundant and flows easily into all three levels through newer, efficient, double-paned windows. Mature, low-maintenance, professional landscaping in the front provides year-round beauty and appeal, and the wide (shared) driveway leads to a rebuilt, detached garage and large parking space. You can access the kitchen directly from the back door with groceries, or straight to the basement with muddy clothes from your latest PNW adventure.

The backyard is fully-fenced for furry friends and privacy, with a deck perfect for chilling in the sun and entertaining guests by the grill. All of the systems have been meticulously cared for, with fresh paint throughout much of the main and lower levels.

The neighborhood is perched on a rise with views of downtown a block away, and it’s just a short walk or ride to shops, parks and the 17 and 75 bus lines. The house is a .3 mile walk to Creston Elementary and 1.2 miles to Franklin High School. In addition, Creston and Woodstock Parks are both within .5 mile and it’s just a few blocks to Trader Joe’s, the 42nd Avenue bikeway, and new local fav Coffee Beer.

This home sweet home is waiting for you – don’t miss it!

Earth Advantage Broker

My clients are always my top priority, and my singular focus is to help them achieve their goals efficiently and effectively. This is the intention I set every day, and how I define success. As a trained and licensed attorney, I lead with a sharp attention to detail, a keen ear and focused voice, and an unwavering commitment to integrity, transparency and responsiveness. I’m a passionate advocate and I thrive when helping others succeed, and I’m always available to connect over a cup of coffee to learn how I can help make good things happen. Read my client reviews here. The choice to become a real estate broker was a joyful combination of two very different careers. Prior to moving to Portland in 2008, I was an environmental and title closing attorney in Massachustts. Since then, I've served as a program manager and fundraising professional for Portland-based non-profit organizations Friends of Trees, The Freshwater Trust and Ecotrust. While not scouting homes and helping clients, you can find me riding and racing bicycles, digging in the garden, practicing yoga, experimenting in the kitchen, and exploring the stunning beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Please let me know how I can help you or someone you know. Thank you!
