2217 NE Ainsworth

It’s hard to talk about 2217 NE Ainsworth without resorting to certain clichés. It is the type of home that inspires froofy descriptions like “dreamy”, “cozy”, “cute” and “Portlandesque”. While those are accurate, they are not enough to describe this fantastic home. It is quirky and functional, romantic and well appointed, charming and practical.

The dining room effortlessly flows into the refreshed kitchen, which has been upgraded with stainless steel appliances, white subway tile backsplash and a large walk-in pantry.

One bedroom offers French door access to the rear yard and the second bedroom has a vaulted ceiling and a closet with custom organizers. The updated bathroom boasts beautiful hex tile floors, pedestal sink, new shower fixtures and subway tiled walls.

The lower level features a large family room/bonus room with built-in storage, wood-paneled ceilings & recessed lighting and also has a separate utility area/laundry room with washer & dryer included.

The private backyard is the perfect place to entertain with its hot tub, raised garden beds and a recently added wooden deck perfect for barbecuing and summer al fresco dining.

Parking is easy in the long driveway or in the detached garage that can be accessed either through the automatic roll-up door in the front or through the sliding barn door on the side, making it a perfect contender for an ADU, artist’s studio or a She Shed.

Alberta Park is across the street and offers basketball & tennis courts, dog off-leash area, playground, soccer field, softball field and picnic tables.

With close proximity to New Seasons Market and all the fine dining, shops, bars, cafes & entertainment on Alberta Street and Killingsworth, this location is hard to beat. Enjoy a movie and dinner at McMenamins Kennedy School and free neighborhood access to their soaking pool. Walk down to P’s & Q’s Market for a locally farmed weekend brunch. Watch a show at Alberta Rose Venue and stop at Expatriate on your way home for arguably the best cocktail in town. Or why not spend an evening sitting in the hot tub with a glass of wine while the rain showers you? You can only call that “dreamy”.
