DIY lover's dream available by Persimmon golf course
A hidden gem in Gresham's great big backyard is coming to market.
This secluded pad designed in the daylight ranch style is located on a large lot in the 8000 block of Southeast Hogan Road. With a listing expected as The Outlook went to press, this diamond in the rough will cost at least $450,000.
"How often do you get the opportunity to own a place like this," marvels agent Michael Patrick of the Legacy Realty Group, who is representing the seller. "It's an oasis sitting on a golf course."
It's true that the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home sits adjacent to the emerald lawn of the Persimmon golf course No. 11 green and No. 12 tee box. But with 3.5 acres — and only one other neighbor served by a rustic private drive — there's plenty of leeway to relax.
Once known as the "Hill House" by locals, the property features stunning views of three peaks — Mt. Adams, Mt. St. Helens and Mt. Hood — that can be enjoyed from a wooden deck or spacious tiled sunroom.
The main floor includes a master and spare bedroom with a shared master bathroom, plus a full kitchen, dining area and private office. The kitchen comes with retro vinyl seating perfect for dining in. Appliances are included, though the new owner may be interested in springing for an upgrade.
Downstairs, there are two more bedrooms, a bathroom and an epic lounge with built-in bar and patio access. Both floors are equipped with a brick-chimney fireplace currently fitted exclusively for wood burning.
First constructed in 1974, the home provides more than 3,000 square feet of living space, plus a roomy two-car garage and a large mechanical and storage room. Patrick envisions the home as a DIY-lover's dream.
"It may need a little TLC, but this home has great bones," praises Patrick. "The structure is sound — and the location is one-of-a-kind."
The buyer will also enjoy the ultra-pure, spring-fed water system, which runs through a filtration mechanism before reaching the tap. And as an interesting tidbit, the Persimmon Country Club once used the expansive home for special shindigs and other events.
The house is served by a septic tank that was recently inspected and pumped. Forced-air central heating is already installed. For more information on this offering and other real estate deals, check out www.mpatrickrealtor.com.
