Is this Lake Tahoe? Nope, its Milwaukie!

By Julia Robertson, September 3, 2019

Is this Lake Tahoe? Nope, its Milwaukie! You’d be surprised how similar the feeling is driving up to this 1920’s A-frame bungalow in Oak Grove. As you’re driving down the street you catch a glimpse of the Willamette River and feel the crisp air, surrounded by mature evergreens. This craftsman style bungalow has a huge covered porch, carefully crafted rock chimney, and southwest facing deck for a day full of sun. The best part of this house is that the primary living area is on one level. One level living and a bay window seat for the kittens to sun bathe. The plan was to find land to build and she found house plans for a bungalow she loved- but sometimes the stars align and a home with all the right things comes into sight. Instead of starting from scratch, you can find good bones and make it your own. You can feel it when it’s the right move. She has a love for vintage homes and many ideas for this great house. I can’t wait to see it come together!

Congratulations Iris! It is THE BEST to see a friend so excited about finding the right home. I am grateful to have been part of this adventure with you. Enjoy your coffee on your very own covered porch:-) Cheers! #lovewhereyoulive
