My husband and I love the Portland area, we've been here all our lives. Our kids live closer to town so we wanted to stay close to them and the grandkids too. We bought here 2 years ago and have been very happy here. Our home is gorgeous and is large enough to accommodate everyone when they want to stay the night (or when we babysit the grandkids)! The clubhouse has everything we need and we enjoy getting out to golf as much as possible. We would recommend this neighborhood!
