The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641

The South Tabor neighborhood is located in Southeast Portland and is bordered by the Richmond, Mt. Tabor, Powellhurst Gilbert and Foster-Powell neighborhoods. South Tabor has many open spaces and is ideal for picnicking and hiking. Also, Mt. Tabor offers a gorgeous view of downtown. You can walk to Mt. Tabor Park from South Tabor, and some of the homes have impressive views of Mt. Hood.

South Tabor is a largely residential area located South of the Mt. Tabor neighborhood. The neighborhoods are named for the locally famous Mount Tabor, an extinct volcano, in the area. The modest family homes in this area were built from the early 1900’s to today, with many ranches, cottages and bungalows, still in an affordable price range in comparison to other Portland areas. This is a great area to look for a starter, first time home, or a nice family home in a pleasant neighborhood with plenty of shopping and conveniences nearby.

There isn’t too much in the way of shopping right in South Tabor. You will have to head West on Powell or Division to find more options. There are some furniture stores, used clothing stores and some strip malls. There are some great dining options, including Bete-Lukas Ethiopian Restaurant, Powell’s Seafood Restaurant and Beijing Hot Pot. There also are a variety of other Asian restaurants on Powell and on 82nd.
