The city of Lake Oswego recently announced that it is on the shortlist of towns being considered by Google to receive ultra-high-speed Google Fiber broadband. Both Google and the City are in a joint planning process to formulate a plan to make this happen.
What would this mean to citizens of the City? Holy-cow fast Internet connnections! Google Fiber is 100 times faster than standard broadband. It allows those who are connected to access a “Gigabit” Internet connection almost instantaneously.
If all goes well, construction of the network would begin in late 2014 or early 2015, with hopes of starting to connect households by mid 2015. We will know if the plan is a go by the end of 2014.
As a Realtor, I spend a good deal of time on the Internet. My time is important to me and being able to do what I do more quickly sounds pretty fine to me.
It is a pleasure to share with you this gorgeous house at 4216 Albert Circle. This house is located in the Bryant Neighborhood, a well-established and quiet area that is close to Lakeridge Junior High School.
The house was built in 1980. It has a floor plan that is perfect for entertaining with rooms flowing one to another without dead-ends. There are expansive vaulted ceilings with 7 solar tubes to let in lots of natural light. There is a 2-sided fireplace that opens on one side to the family room and on the other side to a cozy inglenook in the living room.
The kitchen has been tastefully remodeled with tile backsplash, composite “Riverbed” counters, a garden window, and a pantry. The eat-in nook has wainscoting.
The house has 3 bedrooms, including a large master suite. The master suite has a full bath with double sinks and a walk-in closet.
With gas heat and central air, you’ll stay warm in the winter and cool in the summer. There is also circulating hot water for instant hot water from every tap. The circulation is on a timer for energy efficiency.
The house has great storage inside as well as in a full wall of cabinets in the garage.
I think what I like best about this house is the garden. It has been lovingly cared for and is beautifully landscaped. It is level and fully fenced. I am including photos I took last fall so that you can see the house at it’s prime.
Offered at $459,000, the house has 2130 square feet.
I will be holding this house open this Sunday, February 16th, from noon to 2pm. I hope you will come on by!
