226 SW Florida Street

At first glance you’d look at this house on SW Florida and not feel terribly inclined to venture inside. That would be a mistake however, because while the exterior is unlikely to wow you, the interior will almost definitely catch your attention. Custom built in 2006, this contemporary has been carefully thought-through at the planning…

There’s nothing like a sunny morning and a feast of gardens in full spring bloom to make you forget we’ve had record rainfall last month (grrrr!). This lovely 1928 Craftsman Bungalow, in Concordia, came on the market just days ago and is sure to turn a few heads. It sits on the east side of…

A busy week has meant this post has been delayed longer than I would have liked. However all good things come to those who wait, apparently, so hopefully I’ll be able to adequately articulate what a wonderful property this is on NW Cornell and hit ‘publish’ before it gets snapped up! It’s a rare day…

We seemed to venture to all four corners of the city today to look at new listings, and were left a little disappointed by what we’d seen until our last stop, this 1929 English on Cornell, priced at $529,000. The house, sitting up high above the road, provides grand views across the northeast of town…

Last week, Portland was fairly quiet as most of its residents escaped town hoping to swap the drizzle for even a few rays of sunshine. I’d imagine those that went to California for the week regretted that decision, but there you go. In similar fashion, the tour was lackluster, so I decided to give it…

2237 NE Regents Drive

A lot of new listings to look at today which is hopefully a good sign that inventory is picking up. The cream of the crop for me was this lovely 3345 sqft Traditional in Alameda for $799,000, sitting on a beautifully landscaped corner lot. The house has had an extensive amount of work done to…

Having said a few weeks back that I rarely travel too far west of Hwy 217, I find myself venturing in that direction again for the third week running. This time to a sensational 1976 Northwest contemporary, remodeled and listed at $929,000. Situated on .84 of an acre, and with the front of the house…

I generally don’t venture too much further west than HWY 217 for work, but when I do it’s because a Rummer has come on the market. Robert Rummer built around 750 Eichler-inspired modern homes in and around Portland between 1959 and 1975. They generally don’t stay on the market for very long if they are…

This week took me to both sides of the river but it was here in Roseway that I found what I was looking for in this lovely 1916 bungalow. It’s a charming three bedroom, one bathroom home full of light and character newly on the market at $345,000. Much of its immediate appeal is thanks…
