Sellwood and Westmoreland Neighborhood

The Sellwood/Moreland neighborhood in Portland is one of the most desirable on the east side.  We love Portland’s east side because every neighborhood has its amenities close enough to walk or bike to—and not just grocery stores: coffee shops, restaurants, bakeries, wine stores, etc.  Sellwood/Moreland has two of these little commercial strips, each with its own personality—both walkable from just about any house in the neighborhood.  On top of that there are great schools, two large parks, close to MAX, 99 and I-5 and best of all, river access.  There is also an amusement park that hosts, in addition to the usual, a roller rink.  Some streets are narrow, others wider—all tree-lined and shady; houses range from tiny bungalows, to over 3000 square foot extravaganzas on the cliff over-looking the Willamette.  Though set back from the rest of Southeast, this neighborhood cannot be beat for convenience and charm.  If you want to explore homes here, feel free to contact me.  We can go by bike or electric car!
