Portland’s Buckman Neighborhood sits close-in to downtown on the east side of the Willamette river. Buckman is an urban neighborhood, with residential, commercial and industrial endeavors all within its bounds. The residential parts of Buckman are comprised of classic older homes with a few duplexes and apartment buildings scattered in. All of the neighborhood has easy access to restaurants, shops and services, in addition to being minutes from downtown. Buckman Arts Focus Elementary School is centrally located in the neighborhood and has a very engaged parent population.

With 2595 square feet, this house has a lot to offer the urban dweller: living room, parlor, dining room, kitchen, three bedrooms, office, family room, two full baths and two half baths. The period details are a treat, including hard wood floors (soft wood up), classic wood work, transom overhead windows, pocket doors and high ceilings. Most of the systems were upgraded in 2005 including the electric panel, gas furnace, gas hotwater heater, wood window replacements and air conditioning.
The spacious kitchen will please most any cook, with lengthy soapstone counters, marble subway tile back splash, Viking range and voluminous custom cabinets:
- This house is definitely for the busy urbanite, with the only yard being the roomy back deck. No lawn mowing here! Instead, head out to Colonel Summers Park for some outdoor time or a few blocks to the pool at Buckman for some exercise. Then, enjoy a few of the nearby establishments including Rimsky Korsakoffe house, Nostrana and Zells.
- This lovely house will be open on Sunday, January 30 from 1:00 – 3:00 pm. or for a private showing, contact Leslie Jones at 503-312-8038.
