The Santa Rita Apartments is an outstanding example of Moorish influenced Spanish style architecture in Portland. Built in 1925, tile details on the roofs and the porches overlooking NE Irving establish the uniqueness of this building. It is a charming courtyard setting atop a lofty overlook that surveys the neighborhood. Santa Rita offers eight generously appointed apartments the majority of which are 1 bedroom. There is one 2 bedroom 2 bath with a family room downstairs that is newly built. And the finishes in that 2 bedroom…Wow!

All of the apartments feature hardwood floors and wood burning fireplaces. The baths have tile and period fixtures. Most kitchens feature tile and are well sized with galley style or a traditional eat-in style that accommodates a large table. Each kitchen has ample cabinet space and a back door and windows to provide a lovely light in the morning. In addition to these features, each apartment has a full basement with washer and dryer hookups. This space is suitable for storage, media room or a great craft area!

Garages are available for residents to rent. Some directly access the apartments’ basements, so you can park your car out of the wet weather when you get home in those damper months.

Pets are welcome at this property with proof of renters insurance. This includes most breeds of dogs and cats.

Located just a few blocks north of Sandy Boulevard, Santa Rita is in the Kerns district of what used to be Sullivan’s Addition. It is tucked away from the hustle of the business area but it is still quite easy to get to I-84 or the major thoroughfares to downtown. It’s just a few blocks from the Lloyd Center, but within walking distance there are coffee houses, tea shops and antique stores to delight your nostalgic side.
