Wilkes Neighborhood Real Estate
Located at the outer East edge of Portland’s city limits, the Wilkes neighborhood is bordered by the Columbia River and the City of Gresham. Much of this area remains undeveloped, and residents enjoy the privacy and serenity afforded by Wilkes’ thickly forested landscape.
Still just 20 minutes from downtown Portland, the Wilkes neighborhood also offers close proximity to the popular outlet stores of nearby Troutdale and easy access to Interstate Highways 84 and 205.
Parks & Recreation
The great Columbia River and nearby Columbia River Gorge provide endless recreational opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts including fishing, boating, hiking and bird watching. McMenamins’ historic Edgefield Manor in Troutdale is a destination location for events, fine dining, golfing, movies and live summer concerts.
Most of the homes in the Wilkes neighborhood have been built since the early 1970s, with many new energy efficient houses still being constructed. Of the older homes in the area, styles range from rambling Farmhouses to tiny Cottages.
The Wilkes neighborhood uses the 97230 zipcode.
