This Southwest Portland neighborhood retains all the charm of a historic seaside hamlet, despite being more than a hundred miles inland. Gathered around the main stretch along Capitol Highway, with smaller offshoots along side streets and on parallel Multnomah Boulevard, the village is a recreator’s dream.
Rambling houses have been transformed into pubs, restaurants, bookshops, import stores, clothing boutiques, jewelry shops, coffee joints and more. The wide streets have plenty of parking for day-trippers, as well as wide sidewalks for gentle strolls after brunch or between shopping stops. Off the main strip, gardens tend to be well manicured and the streets are lined with trees.
Real estate doesn’t tend to move rapidly in Multnomah Village, as many of the people who live there are devoted residents who remain in place over the long haul. Houses are usually nice but not overwhelmingly luxurious, with prices ranging depending on lot size, square footage, and amenities. Half a million dollars is not an uncommon price for a three-bedroom home, but it really depends on the market and the individual property.
Homes close to the strip are very walkable, within reach of both cultural and edible destinations (if such a thing as an edible destination exists!). Those a little further from the main thoroughfare are still very well located, as a quick car trip can bring you into Hillsdale, another Southwest neighborhood, to downtown, to grocery stores in nearby suburb Tigard, and to the bustling larger destinations along Barbur Boulevard.
