Gorgeous furnished Portland home located a block from Mt. Tabor, a 200-acre historic park with three beautiful reservoirs, picnic tables, free summer concerts, miles of off-road running and hiking on tree-lined trails, and an off-leash dog park.

The Mt. Tabor neighborhood is among the most picturesque, walkable and livable in all of Portland. Our home is within walking and short bike riding distance to boutique shops, grocery stores, restaurants and food cart pods. Reed College is three miles away, Portland State University and the OHSU South Waterfront campus is a quick 20-minute bike ride away. Need to get to Marquam Hill? Just catch the tram from the South Waterfront campus! Excellent elementary, middle and high schools are conveniently located nearby.
Our home was built in 1926 and was remodeled in 2007 by an architect-interior designer team who wanted a larger home for their family of four. Wood floors on the first floor, wool carpet on the second, lots of storage space, granite countertops and high-end finishes throughout. The home was featured in Oregon Home magazine in early 2007:
Living room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast eating room, mud room, den (with twin sofa sleeper and built-in shelves in the closet) and full bathroom with clawfoot tub on the first floor. Master bedroom with queen size bed, window seat overlooking the backyard garden and two walk-in closets on the second floor. Also on the second floor: one bedroom with double size bed, one bedroom with twin bed, full bathroom, laundry room with washer and dryer.
House has been bolted to the concrete foundation to keep it from being displaced in the event of an earthquake.
Sip coffee and read the paper in the Adirondack front porch chairs or entertain on the back deck, with outdoor dining table and chairs. Driveway fits one car and street parking is available. We're headed out of the country for a year and are willing to discuss use of our car, too, while we're away.
House is available furnished. Rent includes (water, internet, garbage), professional cleaning twice monthly, professional yard care once a month. Please note: This house does not have a TV.
