Welcome! Thanks for checking out our site...!
We're offering a very unique and handcrafted, spacious, lower level, one-bedroom that has been thoroughly and thoughtfully designed and built to reflect both Old World, natural building practices and Modern, eco-sensibilities. This space is both aesthetically beautiful and comfortable, with numerous hand hewn details throughout.
From the lush, tree-lined street below, one ascends the stone steps to arrive at the mindfully appointed garden-level, private patio and entry. Upon arriving, one might notice the attention to detail in the EXQUISITE WORKMANSHIP and JAPANESE CARPENTRY, from the handmade doors and windows to the framing. Once inside, one is immediately welcomed by the warmth of the natural, clay walls, the wood beamed ceiling, and the sunny dinning nook. The kitchen boost professional, stainless appliances, granite counter tops and handmade cabinetry. The bathroom has reclaimed, cedar siding, and an artistic combination of tile, stone and glass. The living room is well appointed and cozy, with warm fir flooring, handmade furniture, a Danish-modern sleeper sofa, and a Norwegian gas stove/fireplace. The bedroom has a walk in closet, and a new queen mattress and frame with Organic duvet with goose down fill. Throughout the space, the walls are hung with original art showcasing local artist.
Nested just one block from trendy and mod Mississippi Street, one has ample and easy access to some of Portland's best shops, restaurants, bars and breweries, music venues, boutiques, coffee houses, and yoga studios. It's within a short walking distance to major bus lines and our neighborhood MAX train/lightrail station, with easy access to highways. Our street is also a city designated bike road. We are only minutes from other local hotspots like Alberta Arts District, Downtown and the Pearl. Getting around town from here couldn't be easier.
*Special Note: The Stone stairs leading up to the unit from the street are irregular and can be difficult especially for older guest and guest with disabilities so please take this into consideration before booking.
Other things to note
Parking is not a problem on our street and there is almost always a spot directly in front of the house, it is free and no permit is required.
We look forward to having guest to our special community, our house rules are simple:
We want you to enjoy your stay, you're space is secluded and private but sound does travel so please be mindful of the neighbors and respect quiet hours between 10 pm and 7 am.
Also if you need anything during your stay, we would be happy to help in anyway we can.
Native of the Pacific Northwest, I'm a Design/Builder, specializing in Japanese Traditional Carpentry and Old World natural building. I'm also licensed in 'Chado' the Japanese way of tea, which is my main stem of study within Japanese architecture. This recently completed unit is not a tea house but is an attempt to mix Japanese and a Western aesthetic through a common natural link. With the hope of sharing the beauty of Japanese woodworking to a wider range of people. I hope you enjoy!
