Spring is in full effect and this property is shining bright with pink blossoms. This listing is on a triple lot that is nestled in close in Milwaukie and features a cottage and a huge garage with a private in law quarters on the top floor. The main house boasts two bedrooms and one full bath and is beautifully laid out on one level living. The home has minimal steps and is ideal for the buyer looking for a low maintenance layout. The 1940 cottage has a charming feel inside and out. The living room with a newer wood burning stove (DEQ certified) that has been used as a beautiful secondary heat source. Per seller, she spent approximately $65-$95 per month in the winter for chopped wood. This keeps the home toasty warm and woodstove heat is just unparalleled for ambiance. This home has a U-shaped kitchen with butcher block counters, tile backsplash, garden views, open sightlines to the living room and dining/great room that flanks the kitchen. This jewel box of a home may be small in size but has ample common space for family and friends to hang out.

Wait, we are not done! In the middle of the huge lot, there is an oversized detached two-car garage with a separate one-bedroom in law quarters. It is perfect for a small business owner, house for a multi-generational family, onsite caregiver or your mother/father-inlaw when they visit, art studio, the options are endless. The garage can house work vehicles, your vehicle, outdoor gear, your summer camper or the treasures we just don’t quite know what to do with. Milwaukie, with the smart introduction of MAX has been bustling since 2016 with change. So much of this change has been new shops and eateries. There is no question of the charm Milwaukie has to offer. For those who enjoy a proper cocktail and love music, try Decibel Sound and Drink. For an outdoor adventure Elk Rock Island Park is nearby for all those fun fall walks and summertime picnics. How crazy to know that this 12-acre island was formed by a volcano 40 million years ago!
