Alameda is a tight-knit neighborhood teeming with community pride. Almost strictly residential, though with shops and restaurants around the perimeter, Northeast Alameda is a relatively small yet prestigious area neighboring and nearly overlapping Irvington to the East.
Each street has a completely unique feeling and is populated with houses of all styles – though, they are almost all notably well manicured and picturesque. In this well-established part of Northeast, you’ll find many people who have lived in their homes for decades or new homeowners who have bought with the intention of doing the same. For that reason, real estate can be scarce and expensive. The winding neighborhood roads slow traffic and allow kids and teenagers to play openly on the family-friendly streets. They also provide each house with a uniquely shaped lot, almost all larger than standard Portland area home lots.
Those lucky enough to live on coveted Alameda Ridge can boast breathtaking and sprawling views of Downtown Portland and the West Hills.
