General overview

Our house is a typical American suburban home built in 1954, but has been modernized over the years. It has a well equipped kitchen with new appliances, modern heating and air-conditioning systems, a separate laundry room, office with computers and a new deck. The house has two levels with a total floor space of 3000 square feet (280 square meters). We live in a quiet residential area 15 minutes drive from downtown Portland. Our neighbors are a mix of young families and older people who are all very friendly. We are a few hundred meters from a city park. The park has a community center with a public swimming pool and gym.

The space

The primary living space is upstairs- kitchen, dining area, living room, office, two bedrooms and bathroom (shower and tub) . The outside deck can be accessed from the dining area and overlooks the garden. Below the deck is a patio with barbeque grill, tables and outside seating. Downstairs has a laundry room, bathroom (with shower), workshop and large family room/bedroom with TV. The garage is next to the kitchen and a toilet only bathroom. WIFI is throughout the house.

Guest access

Main access is through the front door and the garage. There are two exterior doors in the lower level.

Neighbourhood

The local neighborhood has a small number of shops and restaurants within walking distance. There are several supermarkets, a farmers market and a number of restaurants/cafes within five minutes drive. The local community center is only five minutes walk from the house and has a gym and swimming pool. The community center is located on the corner of a 90 acre city park which has walking trails, tennis courts, children's play equipment and picnic areas. Portland city center is fifteen minutes drive and can also be reached by public transport. It is one of the major metropolitan areas in the Pacific Northwest and has all the amenities that you would expect to find in a large city. Portland is conveniently located for day trips to the Cascade mountains, the Columbia Gorge and the beautiful Oregon coast.

Nigel

We are a retired couple who enjoy traveling and meeting people from other cultures. We take pride in how we look after our house and will treat other homes with the same respect and care. Kerry is an avid gardener and cook and Nigel does much of the house maintenance. We are both keen dragon boat paddlers and have competed in the USA and other countries.
