Nestled in the quiet Beaverbrook neighborhood, convenient to downtown Beaverton, this 1952 mid-century ranch has wonderfully preserved period details! Original brick exterior accents and planter boxes are ready for spring and summer annuals for a cheery welcome. Generous picture windows, a quaint mailbox, oak hardwoods throughout, period light fxtures, coved ceilings, built-ins and even pops of original tile and linoleum await!
Step on in to the roomy foyer for a welcome into the light-flled main living areas. The original oak hard wood ﬂoors ﬂow throughout the space and oﬀer a come on-in invitation into the oversized living room to the left. Plenty of room for large scale furniture, or to create two separate zones for formal and informal sitting. The original pink-tint brick wood burning fireplace or the expansive vinyl picture windows on either long wall make wonderful focal-points. To the right of the entry area is a ﬂexible space that could be used as a reading area or designated dining room. Coved ceilings with period light covers are a not-to-miss detail in the main area of the home. Continue through the dining room into a generous galley kitchen with plenty of original cabinetry complete with mod hardware, vintage chic scalloped wood trim surrounding the over-sink picture window, a counter top corner shelf unit complete with in tact original linoleum and chrome detailing and wait-that’s-not-all… a light and bright eating nook! Just add a fun 50’s banquette!
Continue on through the kitchen to access the large combo utility, laundry and mudroom - hello fabulous retro linoleum and chrome trim! A door to the two car garage and two exterior doors leading to the back yard to the north or front driveway to the south are here, with room for all things storage.
Double back through the kitchen to the main foyer to access three bedrooms and the original gem of a bathroom. To the far left is the Main Bedroom with a large closet, windows on two sides, and fun details – the light switch with the dial on thefar right controls multiple light in the bedroom, kitchen and garage! Bedrooms 2 & 3 are well-sized and have clever built-in cabinets for ﬂexible use: office or homework zone, guest room, craft or hobby zone are all a “yes”!
The pink and burgundy tile in the bathroom is in fabulous shape considering it is original to the house. All the basics are here, with room to bump out if an expansion is desired. Plenty of space for everyone to either gather together or have separate areas as needed with the generous layout of the home.
Don’t forget the backyard—as if you could! Options abound: just add Pinterest ideas such as twinkle lights, a firepit or heat lamp to the covered patio (complete with original modern-style brick planters); set up badminton and croquet in the expansive ﬂat backyard for some summer fun, and still have room for vegetable beds and play space for kids and pets! Shed stays for storing all things yard and garden, or for a he-or-she-shed upgrade. Mature maple trees and a fir tree provide a delightful canopy of green, dappled light in summer and shade in the yard. The nearly half-acre lot is over 19,000 square feet of potential. Currently zoned to allow for an accessory dwelling unit in the back yard. Plenty of room for vehicles, an RV, boat or other “toys” under the carport or on the large parking pad next to the 2-car garage. Easily fit six cars on the concrete slab.
For the icing on this gem of a home, think location!! From shopping centers to groceries to restaurants, coﬀee and dining plus the proximity to the Beaverton Farmer’s Market, library and park. Truly everything is in just the right spot for convenience walking, biking, or driving.
