3134 SE Main ST
Urban chic meets traditional in this beautifully remodeled OLD PDX style home in the heart of Portland's trendy Hawthorne neighborhood! Situated on an oversized corner lot where SE Main dead ends, the location affords privacy while still allowing for a short walk to shops, restaurants and grocery stores. Expansion possibilities abound with possible addition of an income producing ADU in basement or building on the property. (Buyer to do due diligence)
A large front porch welcomes you - perfect for relaxing or people watching. Inside a large entry allows for room for coats and shoes. The dining and living room can be interchanged depending on how you would like to utilize the space. Refinished oak floors, original woodwork, large windows and built-ins give character and light to the space. The kitchen has been remodeled with modern cabinets, bamboo floors, solid wood countertops and professional grade appliances. The backsplash is made from a renewable source called Sorghum which is actually a grain. The breakfast bar is cherry wood from a tree previously on the property. A large pantry and a vintage half bath complete the main floor.
There are 2 sets of French doors leading from the living room and kitchen out to the peaceful and beautifully landscaped backyard. A brand new two tiered deck with industrial planters with bench seating allows for enough space for eating and relaxing. A huge weeping willow houses a tree house, there are garden beds with herbs and vegetables, an apple tree, Goji berries and raspberries growing. A cool rain shelter covers the basement entrance on the side yard. The yard is fully fenced affording privacy and safety.
Back in the house a beautiful wood staircase takes you upstairs to a landing and a communal area with bookshelves. There are 3 good sized family bedrooms with new carpet (fir floors underneath) and a remodeled full bath. The upstairs has plenty of natural light and has room for everyone, yet is cozy and comfortable.
The basement has an outside entrance and good headroom. The first part is unfinished with laundry, storage and utilities including a newer high-efficiency gas furnace and water heater. Beyond is a large finished room for additional work/play space.
The whole house offers the best of all worlds - vintage style with natural woodwork, modern efficiency and style, and industrial chic touches, with a peaceful green backyard oasis for when you want to escape the bustle of Portland's urban vibe.
This home is truly special and won't last long. Please call co-list Nancy Siano at 503 706-3881 to view this home today before it's gone!
