Northwest Neighborhood Real Estate and Homes for Sale

The Northwest neighborhood of Vancouver, Washington is comprised entirely of single family development and is characterized by well-kept, older homes. The homes are primarily owner-occupied and the area has a very stable and balanced population of young families, middle-aged people, and retirees. The neighborhood is also home to two elementary schools, Ben Franklin Elementary School and Our Lady of Lourdes Elementary School, and three residential care homes. As the Northwest neighborhood is situated on a promontory, many neighbors enjoy views of Vancouver Lake, the surrounding lowlands, and Stewart Glen. The Discovery Trail along Burnt Bridge Creek is a popular recreational facility. Franklin Park is a favorite gathering place with tremendous views. The area has abundant trees and landscaping with few curbs and sidewalks. Neighbors say that the Northwest Neighborhood has a “country in the city” feeling.
