Elegant Sellwood 1910 Old Portland Home with Hot Tub
|Address||7865 SE 11th Ave, 97202 Portland, United States|
Step up to the huge front porch as you enter this charming 1910 Portland Style home. Before entering the front door, notice the porch swing and porch glider sofa, here is a perfect place to allow the morning sunshine to gently nudge you awake while you drink your morning beverage and contemplate the image of your day to come.
The living room with built-ins has a large flat screen HDTV and DVD player, a sink-into comfortable sofa sleeper with chaise, cushy chairs and a relaxing atmosphere. The large windows allow the sun inside to bounce around the room and nourish not only the striking flora, but warms your heart and soul. Plenty of light and a large table/chairs provides a place to reflect on your day or enjoy an intimate dinner with a special someone.
Your cooking dreams come true in the fully stocked gourmet kitchen with all the amenities. As this is the owner’s kitchen, it is well stocked with spices, cooking utensils, dishes, all appliances you find in your own home. Find a large set of Fiestaware, a Microwave, dishwasher, toaster, blender, coffee maker and bean grinder, electric teapot with a wonderful selection of teas, an icemaker, Foodsaver. wine decanters and bottle openers. Plenty of room to create that special recipe you never had time to try at home. Then take the weight off your feet in the sunny, sky-lighted breakfast nook and enjoy the rewards of your culinary creativity.
From the kitchen, walk out to the backyard to find the gas barbecue grill and outside patio table and chairs. A perfect private spot to enjoy the berries growing from the bushes along the wall or the grapes whose vines surround the back of the house. Here you might choose to enjoy a glass of wine, waiting for your grilled dinner as you get a glimpse the night’s plans while looking over to see the always ready hot tub.
Did we mention the bathroom and the amazing shower? ...Step through the glassed door to the granite encased shower where you find three body sprays and two shower heads to engulf you in an invigorating water melody... Or choose the huge claw foot tub to soak your body to relaxation in the provided bath salts. Better yet, head out the bathroom door to the deck and step down to the hot tub where you can soak in the always hot churning waters.
When it is time to rest, snuggle yourself into the queen sized Temperpedic style bed, under 1,000 tc sheets and quilts, as your head rests on the softness of several pillows. From here, you can be lulled to sleep with music from the tv or watch a late night movie on the premium channels. Or better yet… lie still and enjoy the peaceful quiet of the night. Sleep soundly while the air filtration system cleans any minute particles from the air you breathe while you dream of another day in the lush paridise of Oregon.
Lots of lighting throughout makes this home warm anytime of the year. Motion detector outdoor lights see you coming and illuminate your path around the house. Covered parking in the driveway is yours to use. This positions you close to either entrance to the house. Additional covered storage is available for a bike or kayak/canoe.
You will feel pampered in this 1,000 sq ft of elegance situated in one of the most popular Portland walking neighborhoods. From here, you are 5 miles from downtown and Waterfront Park. Closer yet to the riverfront park, the tram and wonderful neighborhoods with their own charm. Find the farmers market a few blocks away every Wednesday night until late October.

Rose was a very nice, friendly hostess and her little dog, Susie Q, was an adorable little sweetie! The place, located in a great neighborhood with many great things to see nearby, was roomy, well-furnished and stocked with everything necessary for a "home away from home." It was also wonderful to have access to the washer and dryer and the hot tub! I recommend it for your stay in Portland!
