The Homestead Neighborhood is Perfect for Mt. Hood Views

I recently listed this property in the Homestead Neighborhood.  Just minutes to OHSU and hiking trails, perhaps the best thing about this neighborhood are the drop-dead gorgeous views of Mt. Hood and the Willamette River.  While this home received a full-price offer in less than 24 hours, there are other homes in Homestead that may be right for you!  Here’s a look at what you missed!

Your next chapter awaits at Vista del Sol

Nestled on a quiet street in the Southwest Hills lies Vista del Sol, a 1937 property with breathtaking views.  Inside this 5 bedroom, 2-1/2 bath home, you’ll find the perfect floorplan for multigenerational living.

Welcome home…

On the first floor, Vista del Sol won’t disappoint with a myriad of entertaining spaces. Prepare a fine meal in the newly renovated gourmet kitchen and serve it to your guests in the spacious dining room. How about book club around the fireplace in the cozy parlor?  And there’s no time like the present to start planning the post-COVID block party with neighbors (safely distancing) in the large family room.  It’s hard not to covet the vaulted ceiling and walls of east-facing windows where a soft-served cone called Mount Hood melts in the morning sunrise. The first floor also features a glorious entry with original tile, a powder room, and bedroom.

Mosey on up the stairs…

Upstairs you’ll find the first master bedroom which has plenty of built-ins, including a romantic window seat and marvelous views.  A second large bedroom and full bath round out the second floor.

An emphasis on privacy…

The serene lower level is perfect for guests or extended family with its own exterior entrance, two bedrooms and a large second family room.  The first bedroom has a built-in desk area and wood-burning fireplace.  The second bedroom lives large and has its own window seat to relax and read a book. There is no shortage of storage in the mudroom as well as many closets and cupboards.  The laundry room area includes a semi-finished space ideal for working out or perhaps adding a kitchenette.

Enjoy the great outdoors…

Both the main floor and the lower level have private decks.  The main floor’s huge cedar deck is the perfect spot to enjoy that first cup of coffee or tea as you watch birds take flight over the Willamette River. The lower level deck off the family room looks over a kaleidoscope of color in the English garden.  The front patio is a great place to sit and chat with neighbors.  And if that isn’t enough to satisfy you, get your Zen on at one of the many hiking trails in the nearby 178-acre Marquam Nature Park.

Homestead is home…

This often-overlooked location is incredibly practical.  Talk about easy commutes! It’s just over a mile to OHSU Hospital and Portland State University, and less than two miles to Zupan’s.  A bus stop is just a ¼ mile away if you choose to ditch your car.  What’s more, this central location can get you to both the freeway, the Eastside, and Lake Oswego in no time.  This property is served by exceptional schools:  Ainsworth Elementary, West Sylvan Middle School, and Lincoln High School.
