About the property

Cool Hideaway with Solar Radiant Floors--Close to Everything

A few steps down from the garden patio and yard is this unique space in the heart of Belmont/Hawthorne. A clean, modern place w/ 9' ceilings, solar energy and radiant floors--part of a beautifully renovated, 128 year old house. Easy to walk, hop a bus, or grab a Car-to-Go to get anywhere in Portland. Straight shot to downtown, bus stop half a block in either direction. Enjoy a short walk to Hawthorne's unique shops, or walk a few hundred meters to the Belmont Dairy Block where you find a new, soon to arrive grocery store, and a handful of popular, new restaurants. Food carts are sprinkled throughout this fun neighborhood! Division and the newly popular SE 28th St. restaurants are close by. Please note: this space is a bedroom and bathroom with it's own outdoor entrance off the stone patio.

About Deb Grant

The 'small city, big town' aspect of Portland is what drew us to Portland 25 years ago. I'm a Montana girl who loves the vibrancy of an urban atmosphere and the culture of both the countryside and the town. My husband Chuck and I have partnered on many projects through the years. He currently lives on site, and I live a mile away. We continue to enjoy working together and have put a lot of love into the Portland Belmont House. We now enjoy sharing it with others.

Deb Grant purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Deb Grant chose Sunnyside

We bought this property because of its location, bones and vibes! 128 years of stories to tell. A diamond in the rough with unique character and hidden elegance made it a place worth putting our heart and soul into renovating. Solar panels, stagger studded walls, and ample insulation look to the future while the main floor 8' pocket doors, original fir floors, and intricately carved wood work reveal the past. All new electric and plumbing, and sound absorption channels between floors, help remove the unnecessary aggravations of the past to better enjoy the beauty of the space. Reminder: it is a one house duplex, and the sounds of people above can be heard. Some guests hardly notice. For a guest who is bothered by hearing movement above, the soothing sounds of the small noise machine will help.

What makes this apartment unique

The Belmont House provides a quiet, comfortable home stay within a vibrant, fascinating part of Portland. We are 3 blocks from the famous Sunflower Intersection at SE 33rd and Yamhill, a uniquely Portland part of Portland. The house charms people. The great yard, patio, barbecue, (and fire pit too!) make a person feel out in the countryside, yet, only a block and a half away are the shops, world class, affordable restaurants, gourmet grocery stores, food carts galore. Public transportation is a stone's throw away. Drive down the street and you are in downtown Portland in 4 minutes. Everything you need right out your door.

Would absolutely stay again!

Pictures don't do this space justice! The unit was perfect: comfortable beds, spotless, and had everything you could need - and more! Great location, and buses are close. It's all easy walking, and Hawthorne, Belmont, and Morrison have lots to experience. Highly recommend! Thanks Deb!

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

Deb was a pleasure to deal with. She very graciously upgraded us when she had a last minute cancellation. It was not necessary but very much appreciated. The apartment was well appointed, the beds very comfortable. Our every need was met and everything worked as expected. We would love to stay with Deb again when in Portland.
