Portland's Montmore

With no through streets, the small neighborhood of Montmore adjacent to Bridlemile is a virtual cul-de-sac. This home sits at the edge of the major loop and backs to a green space, affording lots of privacy. Though the living room with it's floor to ceiling fireplace and ample windows is a wonderful space, the heart of the home seems to lie in the spacious kitchen. Two large angled skylights fill the room with light, one over the cooking area, and another over the eat-in kitchen table. There is currently a free standing island, but one can imagine a built in island, and updating the tile would give the room a lot of wow factor. The master is another great space and features a sliding door onto the deck. One imagines waking up and taking in the beauty of the trees first thing in the morning. With a laundry room/pantry located on the main floor, one can enjoy doing laundry without going into the nether reaches of the home. For the best of both worlds, a path connects this home to the Bridlemile community and would make an easy walk to the well regarded elementary school. Bonus, Montmore has a community pool. 4 BR 2.5 BA Well priced at $499,950
