We are experiencing an influx of new buyers from outside of the area – many are looking for affordable homes where they can live in the country, but still be close to city amenities. They want larger lots or some acreage, but also easy access to shopping, services, and good schools. Brush Prairie/Hockinson is a great area where we regularly find homes that meet this criteria.
Hockinson has all the amenities of a rural area – rolling hillsides, tracts of timber land, and large horse pastures. Yet, it is within easy driving distance of metropolitan amenities, including Portland International Airport right across the Columbia River. Combine privacy with the diversity of views, and you have a very popular area for homesites with nature as neighbors. This area is in the highly desirable Hockinson School District.
One unique business neighbors and visitors enjoy is the Hockinson Market. It is located on NE 182nd Ave – basically “Main Street” Hockinson. It has the feel of an old time general store – you can fuel the car, pick up groceries, or sit at the counter for a deli sandwich, pizza, or cold beverage. It even has a tap room featuring local microbrews and cider. It’s a handy resource for locals and within about a 10 minute drive from most of the area neighborhoods.
