Located immediately South of Portland, OR city limits is the prosperous suburb of Dunthorpe. This unincorporated suburban area is a short commute to Oregon's financial district and dedicated to residential development. A very nice area to live for sure. An interesting fact is that Dunthorpe and Oswego Lake are connected in history. The Oregon Iron & Steel Company SOLD 215 acres to William M. Ladd in 1916 and he proceeded to develop Dunthorpe. The neighborhood remains home to some of the most impressive estates Portland has to offer. Historically, Lake Oswego and the Oswego Lake were developed by the Oregon Iron & Steel Company to become the Pittsburgh of the West. Three hundred plus workers would smelt iron ore for the  steel industry. The surrounding neighborhoods built churches, schools and parks for it's residents. 

Tryon Creek Explore, Learn & Protect

Dunthorpe, Oregon has many attractions and one in particular is thirteen acres large. Elk Rock Gardens of the Bishop's Close dedicates 6 of the 13 acres to English style garden. The park also has many varieties of magnolia trees and many other types of plants and trees. Perched high above the Willamette River this area has spectacular views of surrounding mountains. Mount Hood is right there for viewing and a wonderful gift to all photographers. Tryon Creek State Park is also close by and the walking pathways to nature are always enjoyable. There are dedicated equestrian trails and biking is fun too. Please let me know if you would like more information on any of these activities.

Let us know if we can schedule a real estate tour. There are usually a couple dozen homes listed FOR SALE in the area. Currently 21 homes are on the multiple listing service and extremely desirable. Prices range from $4,500,000 to $1,050,000 and tend to be larger properties 

WITH Oswego Waterfront

4 - 6 bedrooms and well over 3,000 square feet. The nice thing about these houses is that they are on big lots and offer privacy not found in most other areas. The streets tend to be sloped and streets are narrow which are exciting to navigate and many homes have views of wooded areas. If you're looking for gated entry to your property Dunthorpe could be for you and many homes have this feature.

One home in particular that's listed FOR SALE is amazing. The name of the street does not reflect anything in regards to this listing because it certainly is impressive. Dunthorpe has been successful in attracting well to do residents and schools are a good reason to live here. Riverdale High School is well respected. Lewis & Clark College is close and the law school is popular. Dunthorpe has just about everything buyers need.

I would be honored to show you around. Email me on how to help!

Hello Brian ... May I make a suggestion to you for creating more traffic towards your posts at AR. Along with (Real Estate Information) you can also add your post to 5 different groups. If you are not in a large number of groups, I would suggest joining some. I have around 20 groups at AR and this is where the real bonding and associates and friends at AR come from. I have posted several blogs about my groups within the AR search - ActiveRain Groups by Robert Vegas Bob Swetz.

Also I did live in Portland back with I was a late teen for around 5-6 years. Love the area and it's possible that I may look for some vacant land to purchase in the future.
