It is a two level Penthouse with views to the south along the Columbia River, and east toward Mt. Hood and Vancouver area. This condo is “one of a kind” at Columbia Shores…..”the only one” with this much high end interior remodeling. 
Every day wake up to a beautiful sunrise over Mt. Hood, watch the sailboats, motor boats, yatchs, and barges going up and down the Columbia River, view the skyline of Portland, and see the gorgeous sunsets over the Columbia River and I-5 Bridge. Walk along the Renesaince Trail for miles, eat in the most popular restaurants within walking distance, swim in the heated pool and relax in the spa, workout in the exercise room, and invite friends for a party in the Clubhouse. There are six guests rooms within the building available for rent at $50 per night for your family, or friend’s. Pick up your mail at your own mailbox in the lobby. Best of all, you will park your car in the gated underground parking area next to the elevator, which takes you to the top floor. Your front door is only 15 steps away. The trash chute and recycle bins are in a room next to the elevator. Such convenience!  Although there are many residence living in the building, you rarely see anyone in the hallway, very private and quiet. For your safety, all entrances to the building are locked, and have surveilance cameras and alarms throughout. There is a building Mgr. in the office Monday thru Friday. You can leave town for months at a time without concern. We have lived at Columbia Shores since 2000, and leave for months to winter in the SW every year. Never a problem!!
