Mother-in-Law in Forest Park -- Short or Long term

NW Mother-in-Law suite at Forest Park — short or long term

Nestled in Forest Park, this spacious and well-finished
mother-in-law suite in an historic forest park home
provides the perfect getaway. Private entrance and
completely separate studio apartment, including its
own kitchen.

Loads of windows look out on to the park and bring
in lots of light. Wooded setting keeps it cool, even
on the hottest days. Wooded setting also makes it feel like
you aren't even in the city, but you can walk to all the shops!

Large suite includes newly remodeled bathroom
(Carrara marble and Ann Sacks glass tile), underfloor
heating, towel warmer. It also includes a new kitchen with marble
tile, hemlock ceiling, caesarstone countertop, dishwasher, and
private washer and dryer. Both bathroom and kitchen are
separated from main living space by a hallway. Suite
has one queen bed, a large closet, built-ins, wainscoting, covered porch.

A short walk to all the shops on 23rd and on Thurman,
just steps to beautiful Forest Park hiking trails, on the
bus line, and near the streetcar.
10 min to OHSU, closer to PSU, 15 min to Reed.
Easy drive to Intel without going through the city.

This is a serene setting we hope you would find a quiet
place of work and contemplation. It makes a great
writer’s or artist's retreat, or in-town home. We are a
quiet, professional couple.

Completely furnished.
If coming to Portland for sabbatical, internship,
to visit family, or extended stay, this is suitcase
move-in ready, complete with linens, cookware, etc.
Several Travel Nurses have found this a good fit.
Centrally located making it easy to commute anywhere
within the city or to the surrounding area.

About Me
I am a professor at a small liberal arts college and enjoy travelling extensively. Recent travels include trips to South Africa, France, Spain, Germany, and closer to home to Victoria, Seattle, Missoula, Chicago, San Francisco, Milwaukee, and Washington, DC. Upcoming travel will also include Tanzania and Ghana. I love living in Portland, especially at the edge of the largest city park in North America. Being able to walk to so many restaurants and shops makes it feel like living in both the city and the country.
