Nestled down a private drive off Cornell in Portland's Hillside neighborhood, this early 1970's remodel offers prime real estate in the middle of Portland on a 15,682 sq. ft. lot. Live blocks from 23rd yet feel as if your in the middle of Forest Park. With no neighbors on 3 sides of this home, and being the last home on a private drive, the location is quite secluded. All this yet you are exactly 1 mile, a 4 minute drive to Portland's hustling and bustling 23rd Ave. Enjoy all the boutique restaurants, shops and bars that are offered on both 23rd Ave., 21st Ave, and the nearby Pearl District. Enjoy an easy bike ride to all locations.
The home has had a complete remodel and has never been lived in since being completed this August. The light colored wood like engineered floors in the entry and kitchen tie in beautifully with the new light colored carpets. The kitchen is exquisite with brand new granite counters, back splash, lighting and fixtures. The dramatic gas fireplace is a beautiful centerpiece in the living room which offers a slider to the side deck. The newly refinished deck is one highlight in the nicely landscaped backyard. The fresh, open air setting is quietly peaceful. The washer and dryer are downstairs, as are 2 bedrooms; 1 may be thought of as a Master Suite with the bathroom attached.
Upstairs is an open loft overlooking the Living Room. Plenty of space for an office, play area, or simply extra living space. There is also a private patio/deck upstairs, enclosed on 3 sides by the home, but open to the beautiful forest view. The is a Master Suite upstairs with plenty of storage and all the updates.
