Portland is weird. For years it was a well-kept secret; but these days those whispers are shouts. U.S. News and World Report recently ranked Portland as #32 of 100 in the “Best Places to Live in the U.S.” while Monocle, a London-based global lifestyle magazine, rated Portland #23 in the world for quality of life based on its “innovative and creative residents”, the only US city to make that list. Add views of Mount Hood and the Cascade Range, and that’s the kind of weird you’ve got to experience for yourself. Now you can, and in true luxury, living under the curved bonnet roof of this historic craftsman in north Portland.
Discover a “Not Your Average Corporate Rental”
Piedmont, an affluent and sought after neighborhood in the near north of the city is the setting for this uniquely beautiful home. Featuring two-bedrooms and one and a half baths over a generous 2,200 square feet, this fully furnished gem is waiting for your arrival. The home’s striking craftsman profile of high gables and a curved non-symmetric red over white structure is helped along by the massive trees of this tranquil neighborhood and the deep green shrubbery and landscaping on display. In other words, you’ll be impressed before you ever enter.
Inside, it’s a tastefully decorated furnished Portland home of sconce and chandelier lighting, newly refinished blonde hardwood floors and solid gray tile professionally decorated in the “Arts and Crafts” style. The focus here is simple forms of high-end furnishing, colorful varied walls and limited décor that compliments the color schemes. It begins in a living room of multi-colored soft seating surrounding a fireplace hearth with a big screen LCD TV mounted above with which you can enjoy the cable, Netflix, and Wi-Fi streaming shows. This connects to the stylish formal dining room seating up to eight, at a solid wood table under a chandelier and designer textured ceiling joined by built in dark hardwood china cabinets. Beyond, the large kitchen offers family sized appliances including a dishwasher and electric range on easy to clean tile floors. There’s an ample food storage and even a breakfast nook with a view.
Upstairs, the bedrooms benefit from the building style with some intricate ceilings that add flavor to your stay. A full bath with shower is provided as well as a washer and dryer so you keep both you and your clothes sparkling clean.
Speaking of cleaning, twice monthly maid service is a perk here as well as yard service so you can focus on work or play. You could spend your evening on the backyard patio, where colorful Adirondack chairs pair with a BBQ grill and patio seating for your outdoor oasis. When it’s warm, the community offers a seasonal swimming pool. Additionally, check out the ‘84’ walk score. There’s a Safeway grocery store, Walgreens, and Starbucks all within walking distance, and that score means you can remain parked in the provided space much of the time. For example, the Alberta Arts District and Mississippi Avenue are close, with both areas filled with quaint shops, breweries, and restaurants.

This percolating scene includes Intel, Nike, Daimler Trucks, Precision Castparts, Boeing, Columbia Sportswear, Greenbrier, ESCO Corporation, Schnitzer Steel, Adidas, Erickson Air-Crane, Collins Cos, Evraz, Leatherman Tool Group, and Iberdrola among many others.

Education is a major draw as well, including Portland State University, Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), and the University of Portland.

And when you get hungry, downtown is full of fantastic restaurants and nationally recognized restaurants and breweries. You’ll never go hungry here!
