Located at 3144 NE 50th Avenue in Portland’s Beaumont-Wilshire neighborhood, and within the coveted Alameda Elementary, Beaumont Middle, and Grant High school area, this home is a 3,223 square foot 1925 bungalow, located on a 50’ x 100’ lot with single car garage.
When renovation is complete, the home will have four bedrooms, a nursery/study, and three full bathrooms.
On the Main: A living room with fireplace and original built-ins, dining room with original built-in buffet, large fully renovated kitchen/nook, two bedrooms and 4-piece bathroom.

Lower Level: In the full ceiling height basement we have a 12.5’ x 22' family room, large bedroom, 3-piece bathroom, laundry room, project room/shop, and mechanical room. The house has lots of storage area.
New Home Systems: As with Jewel Box #1, the infrastructure of this home has been fully renovated. The building shell includes all new cedar siding, insulation, gutters, and roof. The electrical service, fixtures, and all wiring are new. The main floor and lower level are served by a newer (2008) high efficiency furnace and AC system. The second floor has its own brand new furnace and AC system. Plumbing lines are new from the water meter to and throughout the house; all fixtures are new. A new sewer line has been installed from the home to the street. We had the home professionally tested for presence of radon and no mitigation was required.
Kitchen: All cabinets are custom with soft close drawers and doors; they have a mix of panel and glass doors. Appliances are state of the art with: a six-burner 36” gas range, stainless steel counter-depth refrigerator, chimney style range hood, dishwasher and large microwave), under-mounted lighting, quartz countertops, and glass backsplash. A breakfast nook with built-in banquette allows informal in-kitchen dining.
Bathroom Finishes: The master bathrooms has Italian ceramic tile flooring and shower walls, a custom vanity with quartz countertop and dual sinks, a large soaker tub, separate toilet room, and polished chrome fixtures. The main level bathroom has italian ceramic tile floors, a generously sized shower with classic subway tile, custom vanity with quartz countertop and dual sinks, and polished chrome fixtures. The lower level bath has a tub with ceramic tile shower walls and floor, a custom vanity with quartz countertop and single sink, and polished chrome fixtures.
Hardwoods: The main and second floors have beautiful all new white oak hardwoods throughout (real ones, not engineered ones).
The property is fully landscaped.
