More details:

House has original wood floors.
Original maple kitchen looks beautiful & has lots of storage space.
Lots of light & super low-traffic area near end of dead-end street.
Most neighbors are homeowners.

House is pretty much in original condition with no major renovations done in 
the past 40 years.  Aluminum siding.  Both house and garage have new roofs. 
Most of the house windows have storm windows.

House has an oil furnace which works fine.  Heat distribution from a wood stove 
would work well in the centrally located living room or study if you wanted to 
install one.

Bordered on 2 sides by 20+ acre open field owned by Portland Parks & Rec. 
They're currently creating a Master Plan for turning the land into a city park 
in the next few years.  Until then it makes great wildlife habitat, with 
canadian geese stopping during migration, and year-round red tailed hawks, 
rabbits, & coyotes.

Again, if you have questions or would like to schedule a viewing, please 
email or call 503-288-5331 and talk to Theressa or Norris.  Thanks for 
looking!
