Sylvan Highlands Real Estate

Neighborhood Overview 

Situated high on the West side of Portland’s West Hills, this peaceful neighborhood enjoys the most snowfall of any neighborhood in the metro area. Like its neighbors, Sylvan Highlands boasts a large number of luxury homes on expansive lots with excellent views.  Unlike many of the surrounding areas, however, an abundance of attractive and very well kept 1950s through 1970s homes are available at more modest prices.

Convenience access to nearby freeways and the commercial areas of downtown Portland and Beaverton are just a few of the amenities the Sylvan Highlands neighborhood offers its residents.

While no official recreational areas are located within the Sylvan Highlands neighborhood, the expansive and lushly forested urban oases of Forest Park, Governor’s Park and Portland Heights Park are just a few minutes away by car or bike.
