“ …. I always veer right onto NW Marshall Street and instantly into another world …. I don’t know architecture, or the history of this block, nor do I care. I have several dreams of my life: wealth, love, eternal wandering, creative satisfaction — and the dream of living in the perfect little street in the right part of town,… Sometimes all I want is a house in the 2300 block of NW Marshall Street . ”
—Peaceful Places Portland, 103 Tranquil Sites in the Rose City and Beyond, by Paul Gerald
Welcome to 2337 NW Marshall Street, a distinctive 1902 City house filled with original charm updated for the enjoyment of today’s living. The foyer welcomes you in with an inset tile entry, leading to warm oak floors found throughout the home. The living room, with original moldings, and beautiful picture and leaded-glass windows offers a comfortable scale for entertaining or reading a book by the fire.
Through original pocket doors, the spacious dining room invites gathering for both large and intimate soirees. A set of French doors leads to the covered back porch, overlooking the back yard reminiscent of a secret European garden with mature blooming bulbs, trees, a lawn and gardening area.
The updated kitchen offers plenty of space for impromptu dinners inspired by seasonal Farmer’s market ingredients. The convenient mudroom leads to the back deck and garden for last minute cooking herbs.
Upstairs you will find 3 comfortable sized bedrooms, two with charming enclosed sleeping porches. The master bedroom is generous in size, offering room for a dressing area or reading nook. The full bath has been updated with timeless materials, marble and antique fixtures, marrying modern conveniences with the feel of yesteryear.
The third floor offers a spacious vaulted aerie with a gas fireplace and private sun deck.
All located in the sweet spot of the neighborhood adoringly referred to as the Northwest Alphabet Dis trict. Just around the corner from NW 23rd Avenue’s f amous restaurants, up scale art galleries, small art-house movie cinemas and multiple grocery markets. A few blocks to Wallace Park, Chapman Elementary School, and Portland’s lush Forest Park. The street car is steps away to whisk you away to the lively Pearl District, downtown or to the airport for extended get-a-ways.
