Portland Houseworks, a local developer-builder, is launching its first pocket neighborhood of six sustainably-built homes on Wednesday, December 9, at the base of Mount Tabor near SE Division and SE 77th.
Pocket neighborhoods are clusters of free-standing small houses around a central common area. With no shared walls, owners experience more privacy, but they also enjoy access to communal amenitiesin this case a shared courtyard, elegant landscaping, and fire pit.
The six Northwest Contemporary homes in this unique pocket neighborhood offer striking architectural designs and energy efficient features. Design details include bedrooms with vaulted ceilings, bathrooms with large soaking tubs and frameless glass showers, nooks with built-in work stations, reclaimed wood from Viridian Wood Products, built-in bike racks, and custom porch swings. Green features include Mitsubishi Mini-Split heat pumps, Navien tankless water heaters, Milgard high-performance windows, and pre-wiring for electric vehicle charging.
Minutes to popular shops and restaurants on SE Division, the area is a bikers paradise and will increasingly be served by anticipated Division-Powell transit improvements.
The public is invited to attend Portland Houseworks pocket neighborhood open house on Friday, December 11, from 1:00-4:00pm at 2303 SE 77th Ave., Portland, OR 97215.
