When one thinks of the Cedar Hills neighborhood, located in Southwest Portland, two words come to mind: comfort and convenience. Everything is close by, from grocery stores to bookstores to downtown Beaverton, and even the Zoo. Several MAX stations and convenient access to highway 26 and 217 ensure ease of travel in this fine community.
There are a variety of stores, eateries, and businesses in the Cedar Hills Crossing mall including a branch of Powell’s Books, Cold Stone Creamery, Ross, Golf Galaxy, McGrath’s Fish House, Jamba Juice, a McMenamin’s Pub, Old Navy, and Best Buy…just to name a few. There is also a fitness club and several hair salons, including a Massage and Facial Spa.
If shopping for and eating organic foods is your thing, Cedar Hills Crossing is home to a New Seasons Market. When you need to stock up on pantry items, WinCo foods, the Dollar Tree, and Fred Meyer can easily be your next stops on your journey home. And of course it wouldn’t be a shopping mall without a Starbucks. After you are thoroughly exhausted from all the shopping and eating, you can head to Century Theater, a new, 16 screen movie theater, and catch the latest Hollywood blockbuster.
The values of homes here are on the rise, yet imminently affordable. Traditional ranch style homes with mud rooms, finished basements, and gigantic tree lined yards stand next to newer two and three-story homes with stucco interiors and smaller lots. For those who are interested in less maintenance, there are numerous condos, townhomes, and duplexes that occupy this suburban neighborhood.
In addition to the aforementioned shops, restaurants, and theatres, there are many fabulous parks within walking and driving distance no matter where you live in Cedar Hills. These include Cedar Hills Park, Greenway Park (which has a fabulous Disc golf course and seven miles of walking trails), Commonwealth Lake Park, Barrows Park, and the amazing Hazeldale Dog Park, which includes large trees and summer time canine pools. Beaverton Swim Center and Tualatin Hills Recreation Center offer year round swimming, jogging, basketball, and iron pumping.
The Cedar Hills neighborhood is charming and safe. If you’re looking to be in the center of everything but still have the peace and quiet of the suburbs, look no further than this neighborhood. If you want a great place to raise a family and a home that’s an investment as well as a comfortable dwelling, Cedar Hills is the perfect neighborhood for you.
