Portland classic 2 bed/1 bath bungalow in the heart of walkable Woodlawn with plenty of updates! This bright, light-filled and open floor plan blends original character with the comforts of today's amenities. A home that ten years prior was a poorly executed flip of gaudy '90s favor, it now features stylish finishes and big ticket upgrades. From reclaiming hardwoods to reinvigorating with bright subway tile, this sweet gal has returned to her glow of yesteryear. Though she may be 94 years old, she's certainly in the middle of her heyday.



Updates include new sewer and water lines in 2013, a 96%+ gas furnace accompanied by the ultramodern Nest thermostat for the tech savvy homeowner. New gutters in 2016 manage the PNW rain so her basement stays nice and dry! A freshened up kitchen blends stainless steel appliances with newer shaker style lower cabinets to compliment original uppers. The eat-in nook and shelving provide additional storage or workspace opportunities. 


A bright tile-clad bathroom and robust water proofing measures make this small bath feel larger than it seems! Enjoy the ample light beaming through the main bedroom, complete with new fir hardwoods that replicate the sign of the times. Or enjoy the coziness of a 312sf loft space with luxurious wall to wall carpet. Another nook in the loft bedroom provides ideal office or lounging space. 

Expand your living quarters outward in the lush fenced backyard. In addition to mature trees and a patio, the fire pit provides communal space. Three vegetable garden beds in ideal locations deliver varying light types for every gardener. A dry unfinished basement houses laundry hookups and systems, but invites creativity and polished touch!

In addition to proximity to Concordia University and the new Faubion Elementary School, walk to beloved neighborhood joints like Tamale Boy, Ps & Qs, + the new Tough Luck Bar.
