The Buckman neighborhood is touted as one of Portland's most beloved communities for its walkability and quaint turn of the century Victorians. It's also home to historic properties like old Washington High School, now headquartered by grocer giant New Seasons and entertainment hot spot Revolution Hall. In addition to dozen or more coffee shops and restaurants within a 10 minute walk, Buckman boasts one of the hottest close-in districts to get around by bike and foot. Just ask developers, turning defunct or distressed properties into new mixed use and residential projects, increasing density and sweetening the retail options for the neighborhood. 

Settled in the late 19th century, Buckman was the first established east side neighborhood, which bustled with streetcars and local shop keepers. Over a century later it continues to attract new residents and shows no sign of stopping.

My latest listing offers a perfect combination of city living and a nature retreat. Tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street, 1621 SE Washington Street offers plenty of midcentury features including hardwood floors and original charm. An end unit, natural light fills both floors through plenty of newer vinyl windows. 

In an area where parking can be hard to come by, Washington offers a private deeded garage, perfect for your kayaks or collector car. Have more than one vehicle? Not a problem, as residents of the Buckman Condominiums have boasted that the street parking has never been a hassle. 

The Homeowners Association remains strong with plenty of owner participation and up-to-date maintenance for enjoyable common spaces and plenty of amenities. HOA dues are $302 a month and include most of your utilities (sewer, water, garbage AND high speed internet).
