The Glenn Apartments
3268 SE Hawthorne Boulevard, Portland, OR 97214
The Glenn is located in the historic Hawthorne District replete with sumptuous bistros and restaurants and ecclectic boutiques to delight the senses of everyone. Built in 1915, it features the Praire style architecture that was prevalent in this era. This is evident in simple, clean lines and low-pitched hipped roofs and unique awning windows. The entry evokes a slightly Art Deco feel with the gentle curve of the lintel brackets and arch over the marble steps. The lobby carries the marble theme up the generous staircase and provides glimpses of the stunning Florida Room areas on each floors’ elevated landings. Rich, dark trim runs throughout the halls and staircases and period style lighting creates a warm glow on the hardwoods.
Enter the apartments through textured glass doors into large vestibules. The rooms themselves are generous of space offering long open floorplans that are beautifully lit by windows that span 6 ft wide. These awning style windows are very unique and are original to the building. Yet, every window has been painstakingly retrofitted with energy efficient double paned glass to insulate against weather and sound. Hardwood flooring throughout the main living spaces may be punctuated with a few areas of fir or bamboo. There is generous closet space and even a large walk in closet that houses the washer/dryer hookups for each floorplan. Heat is provided through updated electric baseboard or forced air and is supplemented with electric fireplaces or Cast gas-burning stoves which are new features in both the studios and the one bedrooms. Kitchens have been updated with new Ikea cabinetry, concrete counters and stainless steel refrigerators, gas ranges and dishwashers. Bathrooms have been completely renovated and feature new clawfoot tubs, wall hung sinks, exhaust fans AND radiant floor heat under the new tile floors. No cold feet on early winter mornings at The Glenn!
This property accepts most breeds of dogs and all cats with an additional deposit and proof of renters insurance. Other features include bike storage, community patio and a coin operated laundry room. Additional storage is available to rent for those who need a little extra space.
