Sometimes the best invitation we can get is to our own life and home. This Multnomah Village bungalow is that invitation to calm and peace. The home has been tenderly cared for by the same family for nearly 20 years and offers such charm. You’ll find it nestled on an incredibly spacious and beautifully manicured double lot. The soothing energy of this home is unmistakable and offers a personal park-like setting for long summer nights and warm summer days. In Southwest Portland it is not easy to find a home that allows you to walk to coffee, food, and shops, but this home is that unicorn and offers very walkable amenities. It’s less than half a block to the shops, so many errands can be accomplished on foot.  

This location is in the Multnomah Village neighborhood in Portland. Nearby parks include “A Park” (formerly known as Custer City Park and renamed in 2020), Stephens Creek Nature Park, and Gabriel Park.

This area is also a prime location for yummy snacks and cute little coffee shops. I know I can’t resist a jammer at Grand Central Baking or the out-of-this-world brioche french toast at Marco’s. It is one of Portland’s neighborhoods that still has a small-town feel, yet you’re a mere five minutes from downtown. It’s the best of both worlds.

Now that we have sung the praises of the neighborhood, it is time to know about this sweetheart of a home. Featuring the original oak and douglas fir floors and two bedrooms; one with built-in closets and the second with a great slider to the backyard deck and private yard.  The kitchen includes a dining space and access to the deck and yard. This yard is a focal point to the home and has been lovingly cared for and planted by the current owner, it really comes alive in the spring. Mature landscaping is one thing you cannot fake or rush and this home proves this in the best way. Between the sound of the birds and the fresh spring bulbs, it creates the perfect soothing environment. This is an ideal location for the urban gardener or even perhaps for ADU potential. This vintage home has the added bonus of a newer detached oversized one-car garage (with garage door opener), plus additional storage and a cute little office space to have those now commonplace Zoom calls. 

The basement level of this home has great ceiling height and outside access. This area houses the laundry, newer forced air gas furnace, and the water heater.
