Portland’s median home price may be roughly double that of the United States, but even within our metro area, there are big differences in what your money will buy, depending on what neighborhood you’re considering. In this series, we take a look at what the same price point will get you in different markets around the metro area. This week: Oregon City, Portland, and Damascus, all priced around $1,000,000. Have a price point you’d like us to explore or a property you think we should feature?

This custom-designed oasis is located on 10 wooded acres in Oregon City and has views of Mount Hood. To get to the front door, you have to pass through a private courtyard, indicative of the Mediterranean style the home embodies. You walk straight into a sunken living area filled with natural light and sliding glass doors that lead to the backyard. Next to the living room is a dining space with large floor-to-ceiling windows. Continue into a second living space featuring a stone fireplace and a second set of sliding glass doors into the backyard. The large porch is a great space for entertaining due to its size, accessibility from various rooms, and incredible views. Outside you can find a detached two-car garage that can double as a workshop, and of course, acres and acres of forest to explore.

Built in 1968, this single-family home has been updated to reveal its inner glamour. You walk into the house and enter first into a cozy living room complete with a wood-burning fireplace, access to the garage, and sliding glass doors that open to the back porch and hot tub. If you didn’t turn into the living area, then you enter into the completely renovated kitchen with quartz waterfall countertops, breakfast bar, and vaulted ceilings that continue throughout the dining and living space. Down the hallway are three bedrooms, two of which have sliding doors onto the back porch, and the third being the master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom. Downstairs is a large living space with a spacious bedroom attached to the third bathroom, as well as the final bedroom that could double as a den. Outside is a detached garage that can fit a boat, RV, or any other big toys that you can use to explore the nearly two-acre property.
