About West Hills
If you’re looking for the best of the best in Portland neighborhoods – look no further than the West Hills. Including King’s Heights, Arlington Heights, Willamette Heights, Portland Heights, and Council Crest, the West Hills have housed Portland’s elite since the 1920’s, enjoying incredible views and a close proximity to downtown Portland.
The West Hills extend along a ridge covering both the northwest and southwest and attracts a variety of affluent residents like doctors, lawyers, VPs, and business owners with its privacy, bucolic scenery and historic estates. The majority of homes here were built in the early part of the 20th century and range from Colonial, English Cottages, Foursquares, Tudors, and Arts & Crafts (Craftsman and Bungalow) to stilted custom built homes and even castles.
On a clear day, residents take in expansive views of downtown Portland, Mt. Hood, the Cascade Mountains and Willamette Valley. Amenities are plentiful, with the best of Portland’s Uptown, Pearl, and Downtown shopping and dining just a mere 10 minutes away.
The highest point in Portland (over 1,000 feet above sea level) Council Crest Park provides West Hills neighbors with a 180-degree view and features miles of trails, picnic areas, playgrounds and an off-leash dog area.
Home to Pittock Mansion (built by Henry & Georgiana Pittock in the early 1900s), Forest Park (the largest forested city park in the United States with more than 5,000 acres with nearly 70 miles of trails), the Japanese Garden, the International Rose Test Garden, Washington Park, and the Oregon Zoo, it’s no wonder the West Hills is some of the most sought after real estate in the Portland metro area.
