Everyone has a space, and there is space for everyone here!
Welcome to the Wilkes neighborhood where quick access to I-205 & I-84 allow both commuting and recreating to be convenient. The neighborhood feels surprisingly private,and the large corner lot is set apart with just one other home sharing a property line. Mature trees and shrubs form a buﬀer that keeps the inside of the house cozy and quiet. This well preserved tri-level has some wonderful period features and details that reveal its history, yet the functional layout is truly timeless.
The cherry white and yellow exterior paint brightens up the mood year-round; just add seasonal ﬂowers to the brick planter on the patio for a bit of pop! Come on in to the formal living room with a gas fireplace, period pendant light and wonderful, just revealed from being under carpet, hardwood ﬂoors! The living room is the landing pad on the main level that anchors the home.
Continue straight into the roomy dining area with a slider to the backyard – but wait – there are generous kitchen counters, plenty of cabinets and two pantries that will hold every thing needed for daily meal prep as well as special occasion cooking and baking. A family room addition creates lots of options for gathering and relaxing with family and friends while watching football or movies, sharing hobbies, or sipping coﬀee side-by-side with books in-hand.
Step out onto the roomy wood deck that spans the length of the house. The large yard feels private with mature trees and shrubs buﬀering the neighbor beyond the back fence. Fully fenced, with a storage shed complete with two access doors for gear and tools, as well as a graveled area around the side ready for a boat or RV.
Circling back through the living room, step upstairs to the more private third level. To the right of the landing is a generous closet with deep shelves and drawers for towels and toiletries. The shared full bath is fun and funky with well-preserved period wallpaper and a tulip light fxture over the vanity. The three bedroom each have roomy closets, wide windows for natural lighting and all three have wonderful original hardwood ﬂoors in beautiful condition.
Pop downstairs to the carpeted lower level with the generous bonus room that could remain a hangout space or could become a great guest/craft and hobby room combo. The smaller office room is tucked away from the hub of the home just enough for privacy for working or schooling from home.
The lower level has a laundry room with a sink, cabinets for all the basics, and an attached bathroom complete with a shower. The door to the back located next to the laundry area is convenient for kids or pets coming in from the rain and mud outdoors in the fall and winter– if needed, clothes can go directly in the wash and the person or a pet can get cleaned upeasily too!
Don’t miss the attached two-car garage on the main level. The garage doors operate independently of one another for ease. Plenty of great space for creating storage, with room for projects and hobbies! Additional long-term storage space is up in the rafters, and in the attic over the family room.
The home is located close to a great local farm stand and Sandy Blvd, the Gateway District and Gresham shopping areas; and is just 15 minutes away from the airport. Walk the nearby Summerplace development and enjoy Glendoveer golf course up the street. For a weekend getaway, the Columbia River Gorge is easily accessible and can’t be beat
