1210 NE Hancock St, Portland, Or
The unique character of the Elysium is apparent from the moment one steps into the courtyard, which is shrouded by tall evergreens paired with contemporary native landscaping. With only eight townhouse-style apartments, residents enjoy a sustained sense of privacy, while proximity to the bustling NE Broadway retail district nearby offers myriad entertainment options. Open floor plans are highlighted by refinished oak flooring which extends throughout each apartment. Kitchens include period fixtures, restored antique cabinetry, and ceramic tile countertops. Sleeping areas on the second floor make this a sought after living situation. Each apartment contains a private unfinished basement with washer/dryer hookups (for gas appliances only) as well as ample storage space for bikes and camping gear.
The historic Irvington neighborhood is within easy walking distance to diverse shopping, dining and drinking options on NE Broadway, but is far enough from the hustle and bustle that residents can feel comfortable in the privacy and serenity of an established community. This close-in location ensures an easy commute into downtown Portland by bike, car or public transit, and access to both I-5 & I-84 is two minutes away. With a near-perfect bike score of 99, life with or without a car is effortless at Elysium, while the grand old homes of Irvington and ancient tree-lined blocks bestow an idyllic atmosphere to this classic Old Portland neighborhood.
