Additional Information:

Quiet, kid/dog friendly street dead ends at a heavily forested community park with creek, waterfall, playground, picnic tables.  Hiking trails snake through southwest Portland, with access to nearby Tryon Creek State Park. Friendly neighbors, good schools, 500 foot elevation, neighborhood has one of the city’s lowest crime rates.

Five minutes to I-5 freeway.  Fifteen minutes to downtown, three major malls and factory outlet stores. Four minutes to Willamette River, 45-minutes to waterfalls in the famed Columbia River gorge.  Less than 90-minutes to the Pacific ocean, Mt. Hood and casinos.  About four hours to Seattle, six to British Columbia.

Built in 1990, this 1703 sq. ft. home sits on a 10K sq. ft. lot with a small creek in a gorge out back. It is in super clean, move-in ready condition and would be ideal for a young family with up to two children.

Truly a rare jewel of a homestead in the inner city.  The tower is in back and dwarfed by tall trees.  When nested it can hardly be seen.


Cash or approved financing $750K sale, complete with major furnishings listed above and appliances, dishes, glassware. Sell what you don’t need. If unfurnished, but for the custom desk in the “shack”, the price is discounted to $725K.

No brokers, agents or contingencies, please. Will consider a possible trade for a newer furnished high-rise or comparable single-family fee-simple residence in Hawai’i. No condos.
