More details:

This 1926 home on a double lot was completely updated in 2010. Located in the inner NE neighborhood of North Tabor - a short hop to all of the great east-side neighborhoods with a 5-minute walk to a MAX train stop. Very easy access to downtown by train or a 15-minute drive by car. 5-minute drive (15 blocks) to Providence Hospital.

Filled with lovely colors and lots original art by Northwest artists, there is a new QUEEN bed, plus a TWIN bed in the large STUDIO-SYTLE space. The beds are firm foam with temperature sensitive toppers and all-cotton sheets. (A privacy curtain can be pulled to separate the two sleeping areas.) In the sitting area is a 32" TV with DVD player and free WIFI. A desk and bookshelves allows for a comfortable place for computer work. (Please note that we do not have full TV cable channels.)

The kitchen is a separate room with a table and chairs, stainless refrigerator, sink, microwave, hot plate, toaster oven, coffee maker and lots of dishes, utensils and pans. The appliances are new and function well. The only appliance that is "missing" is a full range/oven.

This spotlessly clean home includes comfy all-cotton towels and sheets. The large updated bath is tiled, with a tub/shower combination.

If needed in the summer, there is a portable air conditioner to keep the space very cool. And a small electric fireplace for extra heat and atmosphere in the winter.

(Please note that a washer and dryer are not available.)

Lots of free parking on the street. Two egress windows. Fenced back yard with table and chairs.

There are several stairs to the lower level, but once you are inside everything is on one level, a spacious 900 feet. The two owners live very quietly upstairs on the main floor.

You may occasionally see us and our dogs come or go, but we are very quiet. The dogs are never unattended or left alone in the house. (Two of the dos are very small. One is large.) As the owner, I am available to answer questions, and always answer my phone! If I am not available I will return your call asap. No exceptions.

I also have a free-standing studio space on the property. The VRBO link is www.vrbo.com/1036882.

15-minute drive to downtown Portland (5 miles away). 5-minute walk to a MAX train line. You can arrive directly by train from the airport and easily hop on the train to go downtown, to the Convention Center, Zoo, Expo Center, Hollywood and Lloyd District neighborhoods... The house is two blocks from a grocery store and coffee shop. 20-minute walk to Mt Tabor Park. 5 to 10-minute drive to major close-in neighborhoods such as Hollywood, NE Broadway, SE Division, SE Hawthorne, SE Belmont, SE Burnside and 28th Ave (tons of restaurants on each of these streets!) and a 15 minute drive to NE Alberta St and N Mississippi Ave. Providence Hospital is in the neighborhood, 5 minute drive.

The neighborhood is a small pocket that is still old Portland, with new Portland updates. It is very quiet, as there is virtually no through traffic, yet is within minutes to freeway access, bus and train lines, and you can be downtown by car in 10 minutes. Although the map looks like it is close to the freeway (2 blocks away), there is a large wall to diminish noise; it is virtually undectable in my yard, and has no impact inside the house.

About Stephanie Wiarda

I have been in the art gallery business as a director and owner of several galleries, and was a goldsmith and silversmith for many years - something I have recently revived. I have also been a Principal Real Estate Broker for 10 years, and now work under my own company name, Back Home Real Estate LLC. Making people feel welcome and at home is a pleasure!

Stephanie Wiarda purchased this bungalow in 2011

Why Stephanie Wiarda chose Portland

This is a completely updated 1924 bungalow, so there are many comforts that can't be found in other older homes. The double lot in the middle of a city offers a lot of privacy that is not possible in homes with smaller lots. The two-car garage and quiet neighborhood clinched the deal when purchasing this home several years ago.

What makes this bungalow unique

Very close access to everything Portland has to offer, and a beautiful environment in which to relax. 5-minute walk to the MAX train line.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your friendly, thoughtful hospitality and for allowing us to enjoy your beautifully appointed house! We loved the house, the neighborhood, the nearby parks and playgrounds - everything!

Thank you again...

Nicely appointed little property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay in Portland if you are not going to be making family meals (who does! It's Portland!). The kitchen is set up more for 'heat and go' rather than cooking, although you might be able to do it if you are clever or insist on cooking.

The owners are very nice and discreet and the apartment is full of interesting art and lovely finishes.

The property grounds are beautiful as well and there was a lovely little handpicked bouquet on the kitchen table waiting for us when we arrived.

Quiet/Peaceful Property

  • 5 of 5

Stephane, Angelo and the dogs are all great hosts! Hardly knew they live above the apartment, they are so quiet. Close to restaurants, coffee shops and a major grocery store, yet far enough away from downtown hubbub, all make it a good choice for exploring north Portland.

Cozy little private apartment

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a nice place to stay, close to public transportation and walking distance to the nearest store. The apartment is in the basement so it is a little musty smelling. The owner was very helpful and accommodating.

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Accommodations were well-lit, spacious, nicely appointed, peaceful, clean & comfortable. The owners were available as needed without hovering. Information about area sights & places to go is readily available. Highly recommended & looking forward to staying here again when we return!

Lovely little place

  • 4 of 5

Sweet little place, located near every place we needed to be when in town for a family wedding. Located in the basement, but the low ceiling is the only real reminder of this, plenty of natural light. Very clean and everything we needed. Stephanie and Angelo were great. I would absolutely stay there again.
