Freshly Updated Mid-Century Off River Road in Milwaukie Heights.
This home was designed with charm and character.
Spacious rooms look out on the beautiful natural setting. The kitchen has a big greenhouse window waiting for your green thumb. The dining area has room for a long table and it opens to a relaxing, greenscape retreat with at least two seating areas, fruit trees, fountain, and tool shed.
Multiple flexible spaces make this home highly livable. The walk-out daylight ground floor could be used as guest quarters or separate living area with private entrance. This level has its own sunny fenced side yard, large windows, family room, bedroom, full bath and possible 2nd kitchen.
The 400 square foot giant bonus room is ready for your work-at-home office, craft space, home gym, games or band practice, or it can simply be returned to being a double garage.
Three distinct outdoor spaces provide both trees and sun. The welcoming front yard path winds through a mature and peaceful forest habitat of tall cedars, fir, and native plants.
The big sunny side yard offers all kinds of garden possibilities and has been planted with lemon thyme and strawberries as ground cover, flower red currants, and other mainly native and drought tolerant plants.
Everbearing raspberries line the borders at the front driveway and outside the east fence along SE 26th. Mature blueberries bear heavily with 3 varieties.
The water-saving and time-saving drip irrigation system serves the front and side yards as well as the berries and flowers along the driveway.
Light rail is 4 blocks away at the Park Avenue MAX station.
The wonderful Trolley Trail ped/bike path is just a block down the hill and is car free in this section. It leads to nearby downtown Milwaukie and its delights: food carts, the farmers market, cafes, the brand new library, Portland Waldorf School, and Milwaukie Bay Park (a large riverfront park & boat launch). Hiking trails at Elk Rock Island are about 5 minutes away.
