This home is a 1904 Historic Portland Four Square. Located in the heart of Sellwood with views of the river, Oaks Bottom and the city. We are only a few minutes walk from restaurants, bike trails, breweries, Sellwood pool, antique shops and the Willamette River. Our place is well over 900 sq. ft. It is a very private well-lit guest suite with a seperate entrance and an outdoor urban garden. It is located across the street from sellwood park and steps away from the bluff.

Der Wohnraum

Our goal, when we laid out and designed this space was we wanted it to feel like a New York City Loft. Our space has a floating bamboo floor, reclaimed fir stair treads, Ann Sachs penny-tile, custom designed built-ins including a black walnut dining table and nook as well as a walnut wine bar. A modern kitchen with modern artwork and unique touches are spread throughout. The entire space is filled with antiques, mid century modern items including a vintage Eames rocker and Eames wood lounge chair signed by Eames family members, vintage movie posters, Native American artifacts and numerous books fill and tastefully decorate the space. These are just a few of the special touches. The space allows for easy expansion and an air mattress is available for 1 to 2 people to sleep and or you can crash on a very comfy sofa. You will have access to your own private urban garden, that is perfect for reading, or just relaxing.
We have completed the remodel and have updated this space for our hard opening of July 28th...we feel the space is tastefully decorated and extremely comfortable. The bedroom has a brand new queen bed that is fitted it with luxury linens and bedding. The patio is starting to fill in and continues to get better with little touches like additional plants and accents pieces we have been installing or constructing.

Zugang für Gäste

Our house is located right across the street from sellwood park and from the street or front steps you can see sweeping views of the south waterfront and the city. As you come up the stairs you will follow a path to a newly built modern cedar gate and cedar fence that encloses your own private Urban Garden Oasis. For us, the space is a work in process and will continue to evolve over time and continue to get better. Currently, it has numerous design features such as: native planting, a beautiful maple tree, that has tiny sparkle lights strung on it....a lime stone patio, ceramic fireplace, some vintage chairs and side table. The place is tranquil and ideal for reading or lounging and is completely yours during the duration of your stay. Our goal is to have you relaxed and enjoy your experience and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

This space in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland is conveniently located, comfortable, clean, and feels like home. John and Shannon generously provided cheese, bread, fruit, wine, and coffee to greet us. The bed was very comfortable and everything was quite clean and impeccably organized, which I appreciated. There is a well appointed kitchen, and even a washer/dryer if needed. We have found our home away from home when we visit our adult children!

Awesome place. Super clean, spacious AND the sheets on the bed were super soft! The food and beverage were such a nice touch. Thank you! Having the washer and dryer were beneficial after having been on the road for a week. Great place to relax after our busy days. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location right across from Sellwood Park which is right on the Willamette River. The neighborhood was charming with great options for eating. The sheets were very soft and the bed comfy. FYI- if you are very tall as my husband is, please be aware that some of the ceilings are low.

Cheryl thank you for your comments. In response to the height issue... When we renovated this 115 year old house, our goal was to maintain the integrity of this home as much as possible. So we hid all the plumbing and pipes and finished the space to a level 5 drywall finish with brick accents being shown and visible. We've experienced that everyone has enjoyed the space, quality, and character - and height has not been an issue, for even our tallest guests. Personally, I am 6'3(and shrinking).... and many if the guests have been 6'3-6'6 and have not had issue and raved about the space. I believe that people come to sellwood to enjoy the vibrant amenities, restaurants and shops - as well as the small town quality of older houses such as ours. Our goal was to create a relaxing escape for our guests while maintaining the integrity of our unique home...with quality antiques, artwork and high end mid century design elements.

Nice house in a great neighborhood. Central, although a little distant from public transit. Charming, well-appointed apartment, although since it in the basement, it is a little dark. I would recommend it!

Antwort von John:
Terry, thank you for your comments! In regards to your transit comment... Portland is not the same as Chicago or the New York City transit system. We are more known for alternate transportation options, biking and recreation. As a crow flies we are 4.5 miles from downtown and even in rush hour I can get to downtown usually in 10-15 mins sometimes less.... public transportation bus and Max lines are not as efficient as larger metro areas and certainly not comparable to many bigger cities. When people come with high transit expectations, sometimes they are disappointed. Most of our guests seem to utilize uber very effectively..... If you visit Portland in the future I would recommend this as well. As for a the space being dark... you are the first to comment on this! When we renovated this house we kept in mind that it was an old house...and we wanted to keep the integrity of the house intact. We also had to decide if the existing windows were adequate or if we should swap out or add additional windows... Currently, all the spaces have windows except the (URL HIDDEN) seems you might be implying the space in question is the living/tv room...for us this was a conscious decision to NOT increase the size of this window. We also had to considered how public and private we wanted the space to feel and work. Given we are adjacent the park we wanted a more tranquil and park like effect. So we decided to leave the smaller window, and allow a more forested landscape effect...Again, all of our guessed have raved about the space but if future guests request and have any issue with our daylight basement being less bright than a first floor suite, we will add a bigger windows in that area and rethink the landscaping as part of that strategy.

Super cool place with some funky decor and great overall layout. Very clean place and comfortable beds and linens (don't normally comment on sheets but these felt amazing)! Lots of games/things to do for our 3 year old. Location is ideal, close to great parks and great shops/restaurants. Nice touch with the little fire pit outside and provided firewood. Look forward to coming back someday!

I am John. I am from Vancouver, B.C. and I love our house!

Shannon and I live in a historic home in Sellwood, in Portland. Shannon is a High Risk Mother Baby Nurse. She has a passion for decorating and gardening and is very creative. I am a Studio Design Leader at a large west coast Architectural firm. I am also exhibiting artist, vintage car guy and a movie buff that enjoys going fly-fishing when the opportunity avails itself. We both love raising our two long haired boys.

Both Shannon and I appreciate living a historic 100 year old house. We feel it is tasteful updated yet we both enjoy a modern environment. We both enjoy mid century Furniture, artwork, entertaining and we love hosting social gatherings in our home or garden or just having friends over for a "glass" of wine.

Our goal was to have people come into our home, enjoy themselves and get to enjoy a small slice of Sellwood and enjoy the Portland vibe.
