This midcentury, split level house is in the Cherry Park neighborhood, in outer Southeast Portland. There’s a bright front living room, with a brick fireplace, vintage avocado-green carpeting and a floor-to-ceiling vintage mirror that makes the space seem even larger than it is. Around the corner is a dining room, kitchen, and access to the back deck through sliding glass doors. Further down the hallway are the three bedrooms and main bathroom. The lower level has a finished basement with its own brick fireplace and full bathroom, and a two-car garage with extra storage space. Out back you’ll find a private fenced in yard filled with plants and trees, as well as a large porch that is partially covered.
