2117 NE RIDGEWOOD DR
Another opportunity for multi-generational living! With an oh so civilized ADU over the garage, this home is perfect for the returning college grad, parent or even as an income producing rental to offset the mortgage!
This stunning Tudor occupies an over sized parcel of 8,160 sq. ft. Nestled in the serene Alameda neighborhood, the home offers something many families are seeking — a residence to share with aging parents or kids returning to the nest. The 2512 total sq. ft. home sits adjacent to the detached, 4 car garage with 782 sq. ft. ADU (Accessory Dwelling Unit) above. ADUs, more commonly referred to as "mother-in-law apartments" have become commonplace as grown children or family members who can no longer live completely alone, become multi-generational "housemates".
Situated on a cheery lot, the home is pristine with gleaming hardwoods and 8.5 foot ceilings throughout. A beautiful entryway with an open staircase leads to the formal living and dining rooms. Clean lines and many architectural elements characterize this spacious 3 bedroom, 1/1 bath home. Other features include a modern kitchen with warm, wood cabinetry and French doors leading out to the covered patio. New windows, newly painted in and out, in addition to many system updates, make this home a nice opportunity at $749,000 (taxes are $7,789.05).
The ADU is self sustaining with its own kitchen, bath, wood stove and storage; even access to a private terrace for enjoying a morning coffee or glass of wine.
The challenges of multi-generational families are considerable but the financial, practical and emotional benefits of living under one roof can be great. I’d love to help you with this opportunity. If you're interested, call me for a tour or to make an offer at 503-329-7209; or visit my website to learn more about this or other neighborhoods you are curious about.
