The Carmel of Lake Oswego. - Located on the most desirable street in Lake Oswego and perched above the lake, the charm of this amazing home must be seen to be understood.

The home itself is a classic bungalow with a vacation feel with modern updates including a perfect full gourmet kitchen with beautiful cork floors, soapstone counters, a stainless Viking refrigerator, Viking 6 burner professional gas range, main sink with a food preparation area overlooking Lakewood Bay, secondary bar sink next to the Italian courtyard, double Fisher & Pykel dishwashers and new cabinetry. Flowing from the kitchen is the family room, creating the sought after “great room” where most of your time is spent. The family room is perched just above the kitchen, allowing a comfortable place to relax, but with vision to the cooking space. There are windows on two sides looking out to greenery, this is the perfect place for movies or just relaxing, as it is also next to the Italian courtyard featuring stonework, wrought Iron and lake views. On the other side of the kitchen is the formal dining room with a bay window overlooking the front courtyard and a curved natural wood ceiling. From the dining room is the entry way and the spacious living room with a gas light wood fireplace, natural wood built-ins, exposed wood beams, wooden side windows looking out to a small Japanese garden and a set of large glass doors opening out to an exterior balcony. Up the first set of stairs brings you to the level of the family room, this level also has a full bathroom with beautiful tile work and the bonus room that would also make a great office. Up to the next level will be two more bedrooms separated by a hallway, these bedrooms both have water views and side windows that allow plenty of light. The next level has another bedroom, a full bathroom and the laundry room. Downstairs at the lowest level features a two car garage, a separate workshop/storage room and a full bathroom, perfect for showering after your morning water ski session.
