Happy Valley home is a true 10 out of 10
A home in Happy Valley is loaded with over $100,000 in distinguishing upgrades that make this property must-see realty.
"These are the type of improvements you'd expect to see in a million-dollar home," explains Michael Patrick of the Legacy Realty Group, who sold the home. "The kitchen, dining room and family room floor plan creates a gathering spot with great flow."
The five-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home offers approximately 3,000 square feet of living space off Southeast Whisper Court in the Burgundy Rose neighborhood.
A gourmet kitchen is outfitted with all-new quartz countertops, quarter-sawn oak cabinets, plumbing fixtures and laminate flooring. The stainless steel appliances include 36-inch five-burner gas cooktop, double convection wall ovens, under-counter beverage cooler and a French door refrigerator.As an added bonus to the main and prep sinks, the eatery area comes with a wall-mounted pot-filler. The spigot is backed by a sky-blue tile accent that's nearly as scenic as the peak-a-boo views of Mt. Hood available from the second floor.
"I always describe it as a treehouse," says Cory Price, who owns Gresham's Grocery Outlet Bargain Market on Division Street. "It's so airy, so lifted from the street. It's not a traditional two-story house."
Constructed in 2006, the house's master bedroom is located just two steps above the main dining area and living room space. The renovated master bath includes new plumbing fixtures, mirrors and glass subway tiles with frosted edges. It also provides room for a soak tub and water closet.
The backyard features a trellis-shaded hot tub and hand-crafted BBQ area with a lean-to tin roof, granite flooring and hipster-approved edison bulbs strung like holiday lights. Cory calls the space his cantina.
"I love the sound of rain on a tin roof," he notes. "I was cooking a prime rib out here on Christmas."
As an added perk, the yard looks out on a green space with playground created by the local homeowners association.
A reading nook upstairs is highlighted by shelves made of tastefully-repurposed rain gutters. The bonus room has been transformed into another sleeping space with the help of a full closet.
Splashes of fresh paint are evident throughout the house, and the lot comes with two gas fireplaces, forced-air heating and central air conditioning.
Cory, his wife Lacy and their four kids — ranging in age from 8 years to 10 months old — are off to their next adventure on an 85-acre farm in Eagle Creek.
The family says they'll miss their "phenomenal" neighbors and the security of living on a quiet cul-de-sac.
Their home, listed for just $569,900, sold in under a week.
