NON SMOKING HOME, warm, comfortable, relaxing, funky, not at all fancy, far from perfect and rather unique but cosy, functional, private, fully furnished apt in large home in well established, upscale, very safe, hilly neighborhood, in the woods. Walk to the arbo, zoo, and MAX, minutes to downtown Portland, with three ways to drive down town during traffic times. Forced air furnace: Goodman earthsmart with programable thermostate 2015. 75 gallon hot water gas heater. Excellent schools (Chapman, West Sylvan, Lincoln), close to St Vincents and Good Sam Hospitals, OHSU (15-20 mins). The rental space is the upstairs, which is the top floor at street level and the main part of the house, has living room/dining room with a fire place, two bedrooms, one with a sleep no. king bed and the second with a tempurpedic queen, two baths, full kitchen, laundry room and a deck. Comcast cable, TV( 50in and 32in) and internet (Wi Fi). We share with the renters, the family/rec room on the 2nd floor with exercise equipment, ping pong table and a fabulous message chair. There is a place for dogs to run, if you are willing to fix up the fence. Many wonderful paths for walking dogs in the arbo. PLEASE NOTE: we, the owners, will be living in the mother in law space on the 2nd floor under the garage ( we have two bedrooms, two baths and a living room area with a kitchenette) on and off during the year and using one of the offices down on the bottom deck. However, our spaces are very separate and we have a separate entrance. We seldom see the renters when we are in town. We travel a great deal of the time. Two other smaller office spaces/rooms on the bottom deck could be available to renter. We prefer to rent for a min. of 9 mos.....starting in Oct but are flexible. We are planning on selling the house next summer, so renter would either need to move by late June or be willing to have buyers come by!. Because of the high deck, apt would not be good for a toddler. Unique gem in the woods with idiosyncratic charm surrounded in nature and yet very close to downtown Portland Or, which has fabulous places to eat, movies, concerts, plays and delightful weirdness!

    Renting could be available from mid Sept 2017 to June 2018. Will give preference to people wanting apt for 9 months. NON SMOKING. Owners pay all utilities, (cable TV, WiFi, excluding phone), a small office/room on bottom deck, is available for renter to use as office/ art/ photo or mediation room for a small extra fee. We ask that dogs not be on beds under any circumstances. Would consider furniture O.K if you provide a cover for your dog. Owners live part of the time, in a small locked off space under the garage which has a separate entrance and they use the large office on the bottom deck. When we are here we share the family/exercise room, laundry and driveway with renters. This is a rather quiet dignified neighborhood so this is not a place for loud wild parties!
