Stunning family friendly NW modern in the heart of Division St. foodie land

Located in: Portland
*RARE* - Large, well-appointed, bright and airy plant filled custom built NW modern steps from Division St. One of kind quality and size in the heart of Division, rarely available for rent! Excellent location - 2 blocks from all Division has to offer, 1 block from main bike artery of SE, 10 min. to downtown and quick easy access out of the city towards Mt. Hood or Hood River! This house has everything for adults and children alike to relax after a long day enjoying the city - true gourmet kitchen (SHARP knives, vitamix; espresso machine; pressure cooker; sous vide; double Lieber fridge; Blue Star gas range w/ 15,000 btu burner, ect....); indoor/outdoor entertaining spaces for 10+; beautiful gardens; secret passage leading to basement with playloft and climbing wall; board games galore; separate office with large monitor; craft room; and heated covered porch. Come home to enjoy a global modern aesthetic curated from 20 years of working in international health paired with NW modern design features. Perfect for 2 families. Superb location easily walkable to Salt & Straw, Ava Gene's, Pok Pok and more.

There are 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths upstairs; one ensuite to the master (aka "the bathroom you want to live in" - really). The guest room (with queen bed) has a walnut rocking chair and pack and play available and opens to the stairwell loft, full of plants and books and a great place to meditate. The two kids rooms have 6 ft. pocket doors that can open to make one continuous space, or close for two separate bedrooms. Each room has a bed alcove with a full bed and built in shelves. The north room has an additional full size loft bed and balcony with outdoor couch and hanging hammock chair (key available to lock balcony door if worried about kiddos). There are two work spaces (hopefully no one will need to use:) - one in the spacious upstairs foyer, plus a separate office. Downstairs includes an entryway with 5 cubbies to organize everyone's gear; a craft room open to use (can provide details on what materials are up for grabs); and spacious laundry room. From the laundry room there's the infamous "hole" kids can crawl down through onto a loft in the basement (this was purpose built and engineered with the house build). From there they can jump down onto a mattress and access the climbing wall and playroom - the basement is designed as an indoor playground for our rainy winters. There's also a third full bathroom in the basement. Backyard complete with covered porch (with radiant ceiling heaters if nights chilly); steel pergola; 8ft teak table; and garden.

I used the classic 'choose you own adventure' architecture tome "a pattern language" in designing the house - it was a project focused on bringing function and form together to create light filled easy flowing spaces where all can feel at home. My favorite features are 1) the secret passage to the basement 2) bifold doors opening the kitchen and dining room to the covered porch 3) all the hidden functionality in the kitchen pantry wall (go exploring!) 4) the master bath and it's built in walnut closet 5) the purpose built spaces (and lighting) for plants and art and 6) the way the kids bedrooms can be opened in to one space

Bonus: get in the Portland spirit - All revenue from the rental will support a Kenyan colleague pursuing a PhD in public health at Harvard - she's a rockstar of a human being!

Please let me know if you have any questions about the house or area! It's really a fantastic location and we have tons of favorite foodie joints to recommend!
