5 Portland Homes for Sale with Private Saunas

If this pandemic year has taught us anything (besides how frequently we touch things!), it’s the value of self care. And since we’ve all spent so much more time at home, a big part of how people are re-configuring their relationship with mental health starts with personal space. Of course, working from home has made a huge impact. In fact, in late 2020 the National Association of Realtors reported that over 60% of buyers specifically sought out homes with an extra space for a home office.

But a comfortable place to work from home isn’t the only thing buyers are more conscious of since Covid-19 rocked the boat. Without regular access to gyms, spas, or even movie theaters, buyers are increasingly interested in making sure they have outlets for their hobbies and habits within the home. In the spirit of making your next home a self-care haven, today we’ll look at five Portland homes for sale with in-home personal saunas. After all, given the year we’ve had, we think you deserve to relax!

#1 – 2816 N Halleck St.


Let’s kick things off with a charming home in Kenton, just two blocks from Kenton Park. With both a long history and modern updates, you’re bound to make this one a special oasis. From the first steps inside, the Douglas Fir hardwood floors welcome you in to a warm and open living area. The kitchen benefits from new appliances, including a gas stove. Upstairs you’ll find two bedrooms plus a large “flex” space – meaning you could turn it into an office or utilize it for other needs.

The real kicker on this home, though, is the master suite. Located at the back of the house on the ground floor, this suite has it all. The sauna sits just outside the large bedroom. On the other side, you’ll find a spacious enclosed sun room with floor to ceiling windows. Sliding doors in both the sun room and the bedroom let out onto a covered patio and a good-sized yard. After your sauna session, then, you could do anything from taking a nap to reading in a comfy, sunlit chair to relaxing in the yard.

Inside, you’ll find lots of windows and light and an open living area. As a bonus, this home comes with a fully finished separate living quarters, fully ready for use as an ADU.

This home’s sauna is adjacent to the main bathroom and can be a dry or a steam sauna. It’s small but cozy, and has a nice window to let in some natural light.
