Markham Neighborhood – Your New Home
The Lindley Team at Mortgage Express | 503.517.8641
Markham is a community with a decidedly suburban feel and located in the Southwest portion of Portland. Located near the I-5 freeway, Markham is an easy commute to downtown, which is why this area is popular for those working in the city, yet want to raise their families in a more peaceful and traditional neighborhood.
There are a variety of home styles in this community and they tend to be higher priced than many of the surrounding areas, which is why this neighborhood is usually out of the price range for those looking for a starter home.
Markham is home to the Maricara Natural Area, which is quite large at 17 acres. This park feels more like a natural retreat than many Portland areas. It has huge trees and 2600 feet of trails. It also has a wetland and protected stream. Marshall Park is also conveniently located for Markham residents. This area has a 400 foot wide canyon with nature trails within it. It also has a nice waterfall.
Clearly, Markham is ideal for the nature lover, and is a great option for professionals who work in the city but prefer to live in a less urban environment.
