Charming 1960's Ranch - Ready to Go

Tucked in the middle of the Lents & Powelhurst-Gilbert neighborhoods, this 1960’s hidden gem is near the hub of all that SE Portland has to offer! Plenty of parking in the extended driveway or out front, the newly painted exterior, gutters and roof show off classic lines and original solid wood front door!

Come on into the front living space with its generous picture window, west facing and the best seat in the house for sunset skies. The original oak hardwood floors flow from the entry, through the living room, down the hall and into all three bedrooms.  Enjoy double paned vinyl windows throughout the space along with new floor and door trim and all new interior doors! Calm blue sets the tone of ease and relaxation; this is the place to unwind after a long day!

Around the corner, a classic original kitchen awaits with charming cupboards, Formica counter tops and vinyl flooring.  The kitchen window is the perfect perch to watch comings and goings!  Augment storage space with your own cart or shelving. The kitchen refrigerator and free-standing stove/oven are included. A few steps away, the eating area provides plenty of room to pull a table out and add a leaf or two for holiday gatherings, brunch set up or a good old potluck!

Off the kitchen is the converted garage-now bonus space; the perfect spot for weekend movie marathons, add a window and create a studio or work-out spot! Access to the handy mudroom and continue around the interior ‘circle’ into the laundry room on through to the newly updated bathroom!  The bathroom was just completely re-done!  Fantastic flooring, new vanity, new shower surround, lighting, etc. 

The oak floors continue down the hall where the first bedroom has served well this past year as the perfect work-from-homespot. The back right bedroom is a great guest room and the owners have enjoyed the back left bedroom as their primary room. The primary bedroom has big sliders that open to the covered back deck, making this light filled room is a perfect spot to start the day! All three bedrooms have large, deep closets for maximizing great storage options! 

Outside, the fenced back yard provides ample parking for a boat, an RV and easy access to the huge 550 sq ft detached garage! Plenty of space for raised garden beds, add a fire pit, or re-do the covered deck to expand the useable space. Enjoy the two apple trees planted in 2018. Use the garage for storage or renovation hobbies on motorcycles or cars or whatever other big hobby can benefit from all that space! The sellers have done an incredible job bringing this classic mid-1960’s ranch back to life with solid updates including a new electrical panel and meter, refinished hardwoods, interior paint and trim and so much more!  Room to expand and add personal touches to make it “home”.  Location features great access to freeways and all points on the compass for life in the great northwest!
