Notre maison

Our house was built with much love and care in 1925 by the previous owners (we bought the house in 1984 and are only the second owners), a family of avid gardeners, birdwatchers, and hikers. The house is set back from the street by a lovely rock garden and front yard and has a driveway to an attached garage. Our back yard has numerous gardens, both flowers and vegetables (the entire lot is 60' x 140'), and is rendered very private on all sides and dominated by a stately English walnut tree. The house consists of a living room with a paneled and arched window in front, three sets of French doors, built-in glass-paneled cabinets, a working fireplace, and a 1921 Schiedmayer piano; a dining room with more glass-paneled built-ins; a fully re-modeled kitchen with modern appliances and an eating counter; a family room (where we spend much of our time) with three large windows that extend up the roof-line, creating a large skylight; a master bedroom downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs (two of which my wife and I currently use as studies); a bathroom with shower and tub downstairs and another with shower only upstairs; a huge basement and wood room; a laundry room off the family room; and a newly added screened-in porch accessible by French doors off the dining room and family room. A bird feeder in the back yard, as well as a working, ivy-covered fountain, attracts birds of all kinds: bushtits, flickers, blue jays, nuthatches, and warblers, to mention just a few.

  1. I'm a writer, having published four books of poetry and written several screenplays (see for shameless self-promotion), and former teacher, most recently as writer-in-residence at Reed College here in Portland and, prior to that, as a Fulbright lecturer at the University of Athens, Greece; my wife, Patty ( ), is a master gardener and horticultural therapist who works with Alzheimer's patients and has recently published a book with Anness Publishers in London on gardening for seniors. We have a grown son, Nicolas, who is a wonderful musician and who, with his wife, Nicole, lives in Bend, Oregon; they are expecting their second child in September of 2016. Our home has been much loved, both by us and the previous owners, and it shows.

    p.s. In the interest of full disclosure, we have two very sweet indoor cats, Fiddle and Bow (see pic), who come with the house.





Our home is in the lovely, tree-lined, residential neighborhood of Southeast Portland known as Mt. Tabor. Two-hundred-acre Mt. Tabor Park, the only park in the U.S. situated on an extinct volcano, is three blocks away and offers tennis courts, a basketball court, lovely paths for walking and hiking, and great views of the city, Mt. Hood, and Mt. St. Helens. A bus line three short blocks away takes you to the center of downtown Portland in less than 15 minutes. We are an hour's drive away from the gorgeous Oregon coast to the west and about 90 minutes up the scenic Columbia River gorge from beautiful Mt. Hood, with its great skiing, to the east. Another half-hour to the southeast and you are in the dramatically different setting of high-desert country. Oregon boasts one of the most dramatically varied landscapes of all the states within the continental U.S.
