This stunning Contemporary home in Portland’s Buckman neighborhood exudes timeless beauty & classic comfort, with all the benefits of new construction. Built in 2017, the home’s light and bright interior brilliantly balances modern & traditional design. To the right of the foyer is a smart home office with handsome custom built-ins. Gorgeous white oak floors lead past a well-appointed half bath, and into the grand kitchen & living area.

Complete stainless steel Viking Professional appliance package includes oversized built-in refrigerator, two built-in ovens, and 6-top gas range. On top of that, quartz countertops & a large central island make this kitchen a domestic dream come true. An open floor-plan adjoining the kitchen, formal dining room & living room is enhanced by high ceilings, large double-pane energy-efficient windows, custom built-ins & a cozy gas fireplace. An exterior door opens to the generous back deck & fenced-in yard. Stairs from the main floor lead down to a convenient mudroom/ storage area off the garage.

A masterfully crafted staircase leads to 3 upstairs bedrooms, including an exquisite en suite master. A serene master bath features radiant heated floors, an elegant freestanding bathtub, a glass-walled shower & spacious walk-in closet, creating the perfect peaceful setting to begin and end each day. Upstairs, you’ll find the guest quarters/ family room. With wonderful natural light, a full bathroom & fully equipped kitchenette, the third floor is perfect for cozying up with a movie, giving the kids their own play land, or hosting out-of-town guests.

This home also offers a well-appointed ADU with private outside entrance, full kitchen, full bath, laundry, and beautiful natural light.

The Buckman neighborhood is one of the city’s most charming. With a walking score of 82 and a bike score of 99, it’s hard to beat this sweet residential street and its many convenient amenities. Just a few short blocks from Colonel Summers Park and the city’s well-known Belmont and Stark streets, you’ll never find yourself without somewhere new to dine, shop, or explore.

Tracey Henkels

Earth Advantage Principal Broker

Tracey Henkels attributes her disciplined nature and relentless work ethic and to a childhood spent rising and retiring by the light of the sun, on her family’s apple orchard in Iowa. Gratefully, that Midwestern mentality has served her well over the years, and Tracey continues to deliver excellent customer service, superior technical skill, and a wide array of industry knowledge both directly and on behalf of her clients. While Tracey wouldn’t trade her career as a Real Estate broker for any other, her first love was actually Architecture, a craft she studied at Iowa State University during her undergraduate years. After receiving her degree, Tracey worked as an Architect for over 6 years before deciding she wanted to forge a new professional path. In 2004, Tracey jumped heart-first into the world of buying and selling houses, and is proud to say, she’s never looked back.   When you meet Tracey, one of the first things you notice is her positive energy, and zest for life. One of her favorite things about being a broker is the ability to help people make powerful transitions in their lives. Tracey’s natural patience, unwavering professionalism, and optimistic attitude make her a both a compassionate broker, and tough negotiator. Tracey is committed to serving others, being involved in her community, and giving back. When she isn’t working hard to best serve her clients, you might find her tending to her garden, growing fresh vegetables, exotic plants, and beautiful flowers, apprenticing a professional woodworker making fine furniture, or planning her next exciting adventure with her wife, Bernadette.
