Room (for all) with a View

By Stacy Stokes, April 6, 2018

I was lucky enough to meet the buyer for this amazing house last Fall when I sold their Gresham home.  I learned that they were combining households and looking for a unique property with room for mom, sister and husband and wife.  We looked at several properties before they found this lovely house on a bluff, overlooking a river, in Estacada. The house has an apartment over the garage with room for the sister.  There is a large common area in the center of the house with a gourmet kitchen, dining room, breakfast nook and family room.  This will be the area where the family comes together for meals and watching TV.  The mom will have her own area in the front of the house.  The back of the house has a lovely master suite and office space for the husband and wife.

In addition to the perfect layout, the views are too beautiful to describe.  The large combined space for the living room, kitchen and dining room allows for a wall of windows to capture that amazing view.  Additionally, there are several levels of decking, so the warms months will be spent enjoying views of the river, Mt. Hood, Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Adams and Mt. Rainer!  I love helping families achieve their goals.  Homes that include multi-generational living are becoming much more poplar in the Portland area.  I am so excited for this family and can’t wait to visit them and watch the sunset from their backyard soon!

I love Portland! It’s such a smart and accessible city. After moving here in 1996 to begin law school, I soon decided that there was nowhere else I would rather live. Finding a fit here in all aspects of life has been easy. My number one love is spending time with my two kids, Jake (9 yr old) and Hanna (12 yr old), my dog, K2 who is a Havanese, and cat, Tiga. Beyond that, you can find me cycling, rock climbing, running, hiking, skiing, volunteering in the community or exploring new corners of the city and new restaurants with my friends. I am always excited to show visitors the unique and funky neighborhoods Portland has to offer. I am especially drawn to the various architecture and offerings of the close-in east side and west side neighborhoods. After 3 years as an attorney/public defender, I came to the realization that Real Estate was the place for me. It allows me to constantly share the love I have for Portland’s houses and communities as well as to use my talent for helping others. Although, I’m a seasoned real estate broker, I believe that my background as an attorney has provided an invaluable platform off which to build my career. I have a firm understanding of what it means to put my client’s interests first, the art of negotiation and various contractual issues that arise in real estate transactions. Aside from these strengths, I realize that when buying a house it’s not just about finding the best structural fit but also finding the best lifestyle and neighborhood fit for you. I will listen to and truly understand your needs, find you the right home and close the deal to your satisfaction. Throughout the process, I will educate, advise and steadily guide you through what can often be an emotional and challenging time. In the end, my goal is that you have many years of happiness and peace knowing you’re in the best home and best community for you.
