Sabin Neighborhood – Your New Home

The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641

Sabin is a charming neighborhood of historic homes, most are from the early 1900s to mid-century, with a sprinkling of newer homes built on lots that had been divided. It is one of the most ethnically and economically diverse neighborhoods in Portland, with a strong and vibrant community centered around its school and local businesses. Alberta Arts borders it on the north, with its award winning restaurants, art galleries and shops, and other businesses. And to the south is Fremont, which has local shops and restaurants.

Sabin is very conveniently located in NE Portland, just North of Irving Park and the Irvington neighborhood, West of Alameda neighborhood, along Fremont St. East of MLK.

There are well preserved old houses and pretty gardens in this neighborhood. There are lots of big trees on many of the streets, and a feeling of peace and serenity with bikers and pedestrians enjoying the outdoors. It is surrounded by other prime neighborhoods, Irvington to the south, Alameda to the east, Concordia to the north east and Alberta Arts District just north of it. Because Sabin is so is close-in, starting at NE 10th and going to NE 23rd, the commute to downtown is easy. It’s also close to I-5 and 405, which you can catch from Alberta.

There is a close community feel among the residents, who love their neighborhood and take good care of it, and it is an older established Neighborhood with Craftsman, classic bungalows, farmhouses and old style PDX homes. There are several Parks close by, a Community Garden on 11th Ave, and lots of Shops, Cafes and Restaurants on Fremont. If you walk along 15th Ave, you’ll find a Whole Foods Grocery, which is a lot like New Seasons with Natural, Organic Food and Sandwiches, Salads, Soups etc.
