Mid Centery Split Level Well Updated Yet w/Original Details

Bright mid-century modern split-level on a large corner lot with yard space on all four sides of the house! This well-preserved home has wonderful features and original details that reveal its history while offering a timeless functional layout.

Come inside to the landing with the fantastic exaggerated light perfect for the space, and head upstairs into the living room. This is the wow factor moment! The vaulted ceilings, massive central beam and open floor plan truly show off their mid-century design! And the original gorgeous hardwood floors that flow throughout the home – so warm! The brick fireplace provides an architectural anchor to the living area and invites cozying up on crisp fall evenings. Expansive picture window allows light to pour in while the stunning tree leaves in front change seasonal colors.

The layout flows into the updated modern kitchen with generous slab quartz countertops, a prep sink, plenty of cabinets and pantry space that will hold everything needed for daily meal prep as well as special occasion cooking and baking.  The dining space has two options: use the space opposite the peninsula, perfect for a long table & chairs; or the additional room off the kitchen can be a more formal dining area.  Options could be to add french doors and create an office or study space with this extra room!

Step out onto the covered deck and look out over the large, private yard with mature trees and shrubs, lots of spots for garden areas ideal for veggies and herbs. Don’t miss the magical treehouse that will spark any child’s imagination!

Circling back through the living room, head down the hallway to the original, classic shared full bath with double sinks and vinyl flooring just waiting for its new owner to make it their own with some updates. The original green vinyl flooring and bathtub have their own charm but there is so much potential here if it’s not your vibe.  The three bedrooms each have roomy closets, vaulted ceilings, wide windows that provide natural lighting and wonderful original hardwood floors in beautiful condition.

Pop downstairs to the bonus or 4th bedroom space! The wood-burning fireplace, wardrobe storage (perfect for games, decor or clothing) and plush carpet makes a wonderful room and the new egress window allows endless options for this area. Perfect private retreat! The updated bathroom has a spa-like feel with double sinks, heated tile floors, and a huge walk-in tile shower. Classic natural wood and beautiful tile work complete the space. 

The nearby laundry room has new tile flooring, partially heated as well, with a utility sink, cabinets for all the basics, and includes the half bathroom with a toilet and sink! In the hall,  is a closet for even more storage for towels, blankets, and linens.  

Located at the end of the hallway, the two-car garage 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 into the wash! Plenty of great space for creating storage, with room for projects and hobbies!

The local area offers the Willamette River, creeks, and a burgeoning downtown as well as several local parks and natural areas. Convenient to local and regional transportation connections such as the Trolley Trail, bike and pedestrian routes, MAX light rail, TriMet bus transit, and Oregon 99E.  Perfect SE Portland location, great schools & neighbors.  Truly a mid-century gem but with careful updates. The newer roof, furnace, AC, kitchen and lower level all show pride of ownership! Welcome home!
