This craftsman 1942 Alberta Arts Urban Cottage has all the Portland charm you're looking for and with all modern upgrades. Laney was the architect and Brent was the project manager for this 250 sf cottage. Our design priority was to make sure the cottage was beautiful, comfortable, with high functionality and adequate storage space. Besides having modern amenities, having a space with local flair is important to us. The cottage was renovated with local salvaged materials, including 100-year-old barn wood, Prett and Larson tiles, period lighting fixtures, and an intricately designed ceiling constructed of local doug fir wood. Upon entry behind a wooden gate, you will have your own outdoor space and a private entry to the cottage. The living room french doors open to the backyard. The alternating stairs lead to a sleeping loft, a large operable skylight provides great views of the stars at night. The comfortable couch bed in the living room provides an additional sleeping option. The kitchenette is economical and well equipped with all of the necessities, including a washer/dryer unit. The teal and white color theme and greek soaking tub in the bathroom will help you decompress after a long day of exploring the rose city.
There is plenty of street parking in front of the cottage. You have the entire guest cottage and an outdoor private space with bistro table and chairs. 2 free bikes for cruising around town.
