Portland, Ore. | $725,000
A 1927 cottage with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.2-acre lot
This house is in Northeast Portland, on a lot set up to accommodate urban farming — one of the city’s most popular activities. In addition to fruit-bearing trees, the backyard has vegetable gardens and a chicken coop.
The neighborhood is a mix of 1920s homes and newer apartment complexes, with an elementary school and grocery store less than half a mile away, and middle and high schools less than 10 minutes away by car. Downtown Portland is about a 20-minute drive, and Portland International Airport is 15 minutes away.
Size: 2,262 square feet
Price per square foot: $321
Indoors: A paved path leads from the street to the front porch, where a bright-red, glass-paneled door sits in the middle of a cheerful yellow facade.
To the right of the entry is a living room with original details, including pine flooring, a wood-burning fireplace, hand-plastered ceilings and a large window facing the porch, mirroring the one in the dining room opposite.
