Beautiful 1908 Craftsman home(upper apartment) in the heart of one of the most sought after neighborhoods in Portland. This is urban living at it's finest. Beautiful high end historic homes, gorgeous tree lined boulevards, wonderful people, and extremely close to many wonderful restaurants and shopping. This is one of the best neighborhoods in Portland without a doubt. The wonderful and energetic neighborhoods of Alameda, Beaumont-Wilshire, Concordia, Laurelhurst and Grant Park all surround Historic Irvington, but she is the Grand Dame of them all!
A car is not absolutely necessary, walk to the MAX(transportation system - 10 min.) and the bus line is around the corner. You are a 5-10 minute walk from 20 restaurants. 5 minutes walking to Lloyd Center and 8 minute walk to the Rose Quarter. Downtown/Pearl District is a 5 minute drive or 7 minutes on the MAX.
Your upper apartment has been completely restored with the original hardware. This home has been extensively remodeled in every way. Old world style, wood framed, dual pane windows keep the unit cozy in winter and cool in the summer.
The vast majority of the vacation rentals in Portland operate illegally, but this house has the coveted "Conditional Use" permit that the city requires in order to run a vacation rental for short term stays. This house is a legal B&B, but there are 3 separate, fully locked and functioning apartments in this house. There are no shared spaces
Our caretakers live onsite, tucked away in an apartment on the main level. Feel free to ask them for help at anytime.
