Did you miss it last time? Well, now you have a second chance to make this duplex yours! We are back on the market!

In 1908, the Model T went into production, Thomas Edison said, “Anything, everything, is possible,” & this marvelous two-family, Four Square style home was built in the historic Kerns neighborhood. Today this area is the epicenter of foodie-ism, urban gardening & the inner East side. Each unit has a private entrance from the front porch, a sizable foyer, a roomy living room, a formal dining room, an efficient kitchen, two ample bedrooms, a full bath, a central hall, a back porch & access to the common yard. The basement is easy to divvy up, offering additional living space, as well as unfinished utility, storage & work space – ideal for home brewing, wine collection & more. Perfect for owner occupancy plus income, multi-generational living or investment in a classic, original duplex (not a conversion). Mature trees provide lovely filtered light. Prized off street parking. Harvest the bounty of years of hardcore gardening.

97 Bikescore, 92 Walkscore, 1/10 mile to Restaurant Row, 2/10 mile to Laurelhurst Theater, 3/10 mile to Laurelhurst Park and a short jaunt to Belmont, Hawthorne, Downtown, and all that makes Portland, Portland.

Bonnie hit the real estate scene in Portland when Silence of the Lambs was killing it in the theaters, the Cold War was officially chilled and the national median sales price of a home was $120,000. Since then, she's been delighted to assist clients in navigating the ever changing housing market: whether selling a first home or the family home, looking for a starter pad or a forever habitat, downsizing, resizing or buying and selling investment property. Having a symbiotic connection with your real estate agent is key and will help ensure a great experience. Bonnie enjoys consulting with potential clients to discover their wishes and goals, confirming the right client-agent match. Smooth transactions are the target; however, there can be unexpected bumps getting to the closing table.
