This 1915 Kenton farmhouse transports you to a place and time when life was a little slower and sharing your end of day stories happened on the front porch. The south-facing front porch is perfect for chatting with a friend over a glass of wine or quiet evenings alone watching the time go by.
This 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom home boasts a spacious master suite nestled away on the entire upper floor with an ensuite bath. Your own loft living quarters in this vintage home. The second bedroom has a custom cedar closet and is perfect as a guest room, child’s room, or home office. The options are limitless. High ceilings throughout the entire home is the cherry on top.
A newly updated kitchen is one of the show stoppers of this home with subway tile, quartz counters, new appliances, soft close drawers, and custom reclaimed wood walls. The dining room includes a craftsman built banquet (with hidden storage) and a farm table created to perfectly accent this space.
The spacious backyard is fully fenced for one’s furry creatures to run around freely. The outside space is well-manicured and ready for entertaining or just enjoying a nice dinner outside. The woodshed is awesome for holding not only gardening/yard tools but all the toys an active Pacific NW family has slated for outdoor adventures. The unfinished basement is also a great dry space for all your gear and treasures.
The Kenton neighborhood is on the east side of the Willamette River from downtown Portland and just a short drive along North Interstate Avenue. Quickly becoming one of Portland’s smokin’ hot neighborhoods- full of food, fun, and some of my favorite parks.
This neighborhood is growing and changing, showing youthful energy as well as a pride of home and neighborhood, with an upbeat and creative spirit. The area has all the funky creativity and individualism that signifies Portland style. With painterly colors on the houses, restoration projects galore, amusing details in the yards, and sidewalk chalk art, it is an all-around fun place to live.
North Denver Avenue is an old-time, funky strip with an engaging mix of respected eateries (Swift & Union, Pizza Fino, Po’Shines, Cup & Saucer, Posie’s Bakery Cafe), an awesome meat market (Cason’s Fine Meats), a sprinkling of vintage/thrift stores (Give & Take, Kenton Antiques, MAB), and one great gift shop (Mantel).
We love Portland neighborhood street fairs (even in the rain) and look forward to making the rounds every summer. The associated home-grown parades are always a hoot.
