Located in SE Portland, Woodstock is a great neighborhood of families, singles and urbanites. This area feels community conscious, eco-friendly, and very family friendly. It’s a little too far out to be considered “close in”, but somehow maintains that Portland neighborhood vibe. The sweet Woodstock Village features grocery stores, bars, restaurants, a hardware store, and library. Woodstock Elementary is home to a Chinese immersion program.
Average home prices are released yearly by Portland Monthly. While prices shown are an average, actual home prices can vary greatly across a neighborhood.
Brentwood-Darlington borders Woodstock to the west, Mt. Scott-Arleta to the north, and Lents to the east. The homes are primarily working class and it is considered an emerging neighborhood. This neighborhood is close to the shopping, restaurants, and activities at Woodstock Village as well as the larger chain stores on SE 82nd.
Brooklyn is close to some of Portland’s most hip and popular neighborhoods, like Sellwood, Hawthorne and Clinton. Residents have plenty of coffee, pub and dining options very nearby and often in the next neighborhood over. Brooklyn itself is a mix of residential and industrial buildings. With the addition of the new Orange MAX line, it is easier than ever to get around downtown Portland from the Brooklyn neighborhood.
Creston-Kenilworth is adjacent to Brooklyn to the west, Hosford-Abernethy, and Richmond to the north, Foster-Powell and Mt. Scott-Arleta to the east, and Reed and Woodstock to the south.
Eastmoreland is a beautiful, established neighborhood with lovely traditional, upscale homes primarily built in the 1920s and 1930s. The homes are generally expansive and meticulously cared for. Filled with mature tree lined streets and lush landscaping, the beautiful Reed College campus borders Eastmoreland to the north. This neighborhood is home to Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden and the Eastmoreland Golf Course.
Foster-Powell has seen an influx of new residents to the area in recent years, which has helped to create a new and vibrant, although still developing, community. Foster-Powell has some lovely pockets with beautifully improved and renovated homes. A special Fo-Po treat is the number of great authentic restaurants and shops in this neighborhood.
Kerns is relatively close-in to downtown Portland and a fairly urban neighborhood. As Kerns covers a smallish area, there is not a lot of residential property within Kerns, but what there is consists of older east Portland homes, many of which have been converted over the years into multi-family units and multiplexes. Portland four-squares and large Craftsman style bungalows line the streets, tucked into the more commercial areas. Kerns has many popular Portland restaurants and locally owned businesses.
