Woodstock Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Woodstock is a lovely area of Portland with many nice older homes tucked into quiet neighborhood streets. This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Portland with some of the homes being built in the 1880’s. This area is peaceful, feels warm and safe and is full of young and established families.
Located in SE Portland, you will find delightful stores, coffee shops, library and restaurants where the locals often convene and check out the visitors. Woodstock is one of the city’s older neighborhoods, as many of the homes date to the 1880s, particularly in the northern part of Woodstock. The southern area have homes mostly built in the 1950s, along with a few newer developments. Woodstock homes are old style Portland homes such as Old Portland foursquares, Tudor, Colonial, Bungalow and more.
All of the businesses here are locally owned, and most of them are located in the Woodstock Village Center, which is on Woodstock Boulevard between 39th and 52nd. They have a community center, library, churches, restaurants, stores, and services.
Woodstock’s residential streets feel peaceful and quiet, even though they are close to everything urban Portland has to offer. Students or others those not wanting the commitment of owning a home, can live in the condos and townhouses that have been built in the past few decades. Woodstock Park is a beautiful, large area, which has lots of sports fields, a horseshoe pit, playgrounds and more. The best part is that during the summer, don’t be surprised if you encounter a musician or small band playing for your entertainment. Another top feature is the well-loved Woodstock Library. Here you will find a great selection of books, movies and the like. This library is particularly popular with senior citizens. Woodstock is one of the little communities that make Portland a desirable place to live.
