First, the basics: the unit is an L shaped open studio (see floor plan in photos) with maple hardwood floors, tons of natural light, and a modern kitchen that has a built-in microwave, dishwasher, etc. It includes a custom built combination loft bed, huge desk, closet and storage system separate from the rest of the living space.
It also has AC and a combination washer/dryer, along with a convenience store in the building's retail space. The building was built in 2001 and has a secure entry system and bike storage.
The real benefit here, aside from an open floor plan with lots of windows and such, is the location, which puts you right in the cultural district in downtown, Portland.
The location can't be beat... Within ONE city block you've got groceries (Safeway), restaurants (Thai, Japanese, West Caf, Pizza, Mexican), a local quickie-mart, a Plaid Pantry, a Japanese Tea House, a gym and pool, a copy shop, etc. Within TWO blocks are city parks, museums, Blockbuster, more restaurants....
Pioneer Square and PGE Park are a short walk away, along with the cinemas at Fox Tower & Broadway Theatres, Nordstrom, Library, and... well, pretty much all of downtown and Goose Hollow.
The streetcar stops at the corner across the street and the MAX is just a few blocks away. Both are free since we're in fare less square.
No smoking. Pets are negotiable. 1 year lease with month to month after. Water (hot and cold), sewer, & garbage are included in the rent. FREE WIRELESS internet also included! Tenant pays for electric only ($35 - $75 average a month) plus any TV and extra internet they may want. Parking (besides street parking) is available at extra cost (ranging from $110/month to $165/month).
Available September 1st. First months rent plus half a month's rent for security deposit. $150 move in fee required by the condo will be waived (I.E., I will pay for it). There is also a $35 non-refundable credit check charge.
IMPORTANT: I live a few hours from Portland with no cell phone coverage (though I do have access to a phone), so if you have any questions or would like to set up an appointment to see the condo, please respond to this add by email with your phone number so I can give you a call.
The address is: 1134 SW Jefferson, #201. The total funds needed up front would be: $1050 (First Months Rent) + $525 (Refundable Security Deposit) + $35 (non refundable security check charge) = $1,610.
NOTE: Colors in pictures have changed. The condo comes partially furnished with a nice leather reclining love set, kitchen island and some kitchenware.
