Vintage charm with every modern upgrade. Perfectly located in Portland's inner SE Central Eastside District near SE 12th and Hawthorne.
When we got this house last year she was about to be demolished. And honestly, this was understandable as she was built as “temporary housing” for dock workers back in 1895! When we got her she had been neglected longer than any sweet home deserves.
We lovingly and painstakingly restored and revived her beyond what any sane person would do. We took her down to the studs so we could straighter the parts that had settled over time. We even added a second floor attic ensuite bedroom complete with half bath and view of the city; and completely redid EVERYTHING else while restoring what we could.
We were able to save doors and windows and cubbies, and even her ancient douglas fir floors, but we decided to draw the line at her nonworking heating system – it needed to go in favor of a heat/ac split system in each room instead. Old electric and plumbing? No thank you! We prefer all new to handle our modern kitchens and baths (complete with handmade tile from Portland’s own Pratt & Larson).
We did save the old pantry and turned it into a sweet office with VERY COOL stairway to the attic (made out of salvaged barn flooring that we literally had to blast the cow@#^ off of!).
All in all, she is a beauty on the inside and much bigger than she appears from the outside. We know you will enjoy your time here!
