For a starter home that’s closer to reality than this $1 million fantasy in San Diego, consider this cutie in Portland.
Built in 1948, the two-bedroom-one-bath measures an efficient 1,320 square feet and offers plenty of common living by way of a congenial, large-windowed lounge at the front of the house, and a combination family-room-dining area with old-fashioned wood-burning furnace and wood paneling on the other side of the kitchen.
Speaking of which: Though the kitchen could certainly use an update, it’s a sizable space with a nice dose of period charm thanks to its midcentury-esque cabinetry.
The bedrooms are plenty big, too, with ample closets, while the bathroom features double sinks. Here, floors are carpeted, while hardwood makes up the flooring in the living areas. There’s even a small yard both in front and out back, plus a covered wooden deck for all your outdoor entertaining and leisure needs.
Located at 8005 SE Raymond Street in the Foster-Powell neighborhood, the Portland property is offered at $296,500.
