Can’t afford Close-in Portland? Consider Kruse Village!

By Amanda Haworth, September 17, 2018

Historically, the suburbs have gotten a bad rap for not being walkable. Need to run to the grocery store? Get in the car and drive there. Want to go out to dinner? See a movie? Just grab a beer at a local bar? Get in the car and drive there. It’s kind of a bummer. But no more. There is an awesome new development out in Lake Oswego that is giving you the benefits of inner city living, but with the breathing room of the ‘burbs. All the convenience, with less coin.

Kruse Village is the hustling and bustling new heart of lower Mountain Park and Kruse Way. Spanning over 5 acres, it’s home to a bevy of retail shops, personal services, and restaurants. Whatever you are craving, they have you covered. Get your sushi on or get some delicious pizza and sit out in the courtyard and enjoy the people watching. One of the jewels of the area is the Tavern on Kruse, where you can dine on delicious locally sourced delicacies. Get the butternut squash ravioli and the hangar steak and thank me later.

If you have been considering making the jump to Lake Oswego, I have a marvelous townhouse mere blocks away from Kruse Village! With a great layout for easy living and a private wooded area out back, it’s the best of the burbs and city life!

This stunning Uplands Park townhouse greets you with an abundance of greenery framing the front and back entrance, giving you a feeling of privacy and simplicity. The home has new hardwood floors, beautiful light wood cabinets, gorgeous granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and lovely tile work in the bathrooms. Other updates include: new paint throughout, a new hot water heater,  newer low-flow toilets and a 2-year-old french drain for essential drainage.

The living space has an open floor concept with a wonderful wood burning fireplace. Just off the living room is a private back deck that faces a “mini forest” of trees and plants. The master bedroom features a spacious closet, ample windows and has a full private bathroom. A little ways down the hall you’ll come across the 2nd bathroom and bedroom. The upstairs updates include new carpet and paint. A huge picture window rests above the staircase filling the home with beautiful, bright sunshine. The attached one car garage gives you space to park your vehicle or to use for storage. With easy access to I-5 and a quick 15-min drive to downtown Portland, this home has it all!

Give me a call today to learn more about this gem at a cool $289,999 and be moved in by Halloween!
