Vernon Neighborhood Real Estate
The tiny pocket neighborhood of Vernon in Northeast Portland owes much of its growth in recent years to a solid community reputation, affordable home prices and the booming Alberta Arts district centered around the area’s main thoroughfare.
Bordered by the genteel Concordia and up-and-coming King neighborhoods, Vernon maintains a comfortable balance between the two. Excellent schools, increasing numbers of first time homebuyers and convenient access to downtown have earned this area a place on the city’s watch list.
Parks & Recreation
Friends of Alberta Park contribute to the maintenance of the Vernon neighborhood’s main recreational area, ensuring residents are able to enjoy the park’s considerable amenities, including 16 acres of green space, paved and natural walking paths, off-leash area for dogs, tennis court, playing fields, wading pool and playground.
From cozy Bungalows to airy Arts and Crafts style homes, many of the houses in the Vernon neighborhood are being restored to their original condition, often with an emphasis on details such as multiple fireplaces, fine woodwork and colorful stained glass windows.
