About 11942 SE Lexington St Portland, OR 97266
I'm offering a fabulous (really) apartment on the first floor of my custom, beautiful house (10 years old) in a nice, new neighborhood on the north side of Mt. Scott (650 feet elevation, guaranteeing snow every winter). Two huge windows in the living room provide a beautiful view of southeast Portland and three Cascade peaks (Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Adams). About 1100 square feet, features a spacious great room, very large bedroom, with a nice, bright, modern kitchen, dining area, and large living (great) room.

Nice laminate flooring throughout (no carpeting), with porcelain tile in the kitchen and bathroom. Gas fireplace in the great room to keep you cozy, with a heat pump supplying base heat and air conditioning. Nine-foot ceilings to give a feeling of spaciousness. Bathroom has a walk-in shower and granite vanity top. All utilities (except cable and internet upgrades you might want) are FREE (included with your rent). You have your own high-efficiency washer and dryer right outside your bedroom. Plenty of kitchen cabinet space, pantry, storage space, linen closet, and bedroom closet space. The other door to your bedroom leads to the storage room (where you could put a freezer just outside your door), and past that is the oversized 3-car garage, where you can park your car (automatic garage door opener). Your patio has a large, retractable awning. The patio is surrounded by your own lawn, and is fenced. On the other side of the fence is your own private woods, with hiking trails going for miles. (In ten years of living here, I have never seen any sign of a human being in the woods.) I will also build a small deck a short distance off in the woods for you to read your book or have your morning coffee. (Trust me -- it's a beautiful, tranquil setting.) I pitch a tent out there and have campouts. We have a hot tub that looks out into the woods. Also outside your front windows are large, raised-bed vegetable gardens that you can claim as your own, and you have access to a dozen multi-variety fruit trees on the property and many wild berries that I have cultivated (right outside your bedroom). A fairly private entranceway exits off the driveway and from the garage, and you can access security cameras. Don't worry about others (me) that occupy the upper floors of the house -- the house is huge, with a large yard off to the other side of the house, and large deck. So there you have it -- the best of both worlds. The convenience of a nice, spacious, modern apartment, owner-occupied so that things get fixed immediately and is well-maintained, but with the privacy and atmosphere of a home in a tranquil neighborhood, incredible grounds, surrounded by a natural environment. I just don't think you can find anything like this in Portland. (Sorry about the photos -- my cellphone camera doesn't work well unless it's very well lit. The apartment has lots of windows and lots of light.)

Neighborhood - Pleasant Valley
Situated approximately 15 miles southeast of downtown Portland via I-84 East, Pleasant Valley draws diverse residents with easy access to Powell Butte Nature Park. Those with home rentals in the area find this park ideal for hiking, biking, and horseback riding, thanks to a wide array of trails suitable for each pursuit along with a dedicated nature preserve.
Once you've had your fill of green space, you don't have to brave downtown to discover a variety of dining options. Pleasant Valley locals enjoy great Mexican fare at Cocina Garcia on SE Powell, and Golden Dynasty, a Chinese place on SE Foster, gets rave reviews for its large portions and affordable prices. Local businesses tend toward service, but those looking to boost curb appeal head to D & J Nurseries on SE Foster for a wide selection of trees, shrubs, and outdoor decor. HK Sportswear on SE Gaibler prints custom sportswear for local teams, while Ride This on SE McKinley sells bikes and provides bicycle rentals.
