4331/4335 SE Taylor St. 

Unique opportunity to own two bright eco-friendly townhomes in one of Portland's hottest neighborhoods.  Trekhaus is a modern custom duplex.  This efficient, resilient, net-zero energy designed building is both Earth Advantage Platinum and Passive House certified.  The house was built in January 2012 by PDX Living who specializes in Passive House design.

The property consists of two mirror-image two story townhomes.  Each home is 3 bedrooms 2 baths and includes 1718 square feet of living space.  The floor plan has a live/work design with a first floor office which also includes a bedroom, bath, laundry and workshop.  The 2nd floor includes your main living space with a south facing deck, kitchen, bedroom, and bath. 

All interior finishes and fixtures are high quality and water saving.  The west unit 4331 has cork flooring and the east unit 4335 has bamboo flooring.  The bathroom floor is marmoleum in both units.   Each unit has all electric energy-efficient mechanical systems, appliances and lighting.  This includes a mini-split heat pump for heating/cooling, a heat pump water heater and abundant natural lighting with LEDs/CFLS.  Triple-glazed high performance Thermotech fiberglass windows and Therma-Tru fiberglass exterior doors with multi-point locking systems provide airtightness and added security.  The house is super insulated.  Superior and comfortable air quality is provided by a whole house ventilation system with Zehnder heat recovery ventilator, high grade particulate filter, optional carbon filter and low VOC paints and materials. 

The duplex has a high performance white Energy Star roof.  The west unit (4331) which has solar panels has operated net-positive since May 2012,  generating on average more energy than the household uses.  The excess energy is donated to a low-income assistance program.  An $11/month PGE bill maintains the net-metering account.   The east unit (4335) is solar ready with an average PGE bill of $63/month.  This includes electric usage of tenant who works from home and uses multiple computers.

Additional features include abundant storage, on-site parking, garden with fruit trees, raised beds and a drip irrigation system.  The 100% on site storm water management includes a 1500 gallon underground cistern and soakage trenches.  This makes the property eligible for Clean River Rewards stormwater discount on the water bill.  The property is also pre-wired for future electric vehicle charging station.

TrekHaus has been extensively monitored and studied by Portland State University's Green Building Research Lab and has been featured on multiple tours and media articles.

Last, but not least Trekhaus is located in the Sunnyside neighborhood between Hawthorne and Belmont.  With a walk score of 90 and bike score of 100, you have easy access to popular restaurants, shops, the library and beautiful  parks such as Laurelhurst and Mount Tabor.  In close proximity are grocery stores New Seasons and Fred Meyers.  Excellent neighborhood schools include Glencoe Elementary, Mt. Tabor Middle School and Franklin High School which will be newly renovated by fall of 2017.

Own one of Portland's greenest homes in one of the most desired neighborhoods. With a rental income potential of $3000/month per unit - this is a solid financial and earth-friendly investment.
