House Hunter PDX: Nob Hill (NW Portland)

Nob Hill

In case you missed it, perhaps the best episode of House Hunter PDX yet is up on my Youtube channel! House Hunter PDX: Nob Hill.

If you’ve ever visited Portland or considered moving here, it’s likely that Nob Hill has crossed your radar. It is one of Portland’s’ hubs of action, and has been for a very long time. As long as Portland has been Portland, Nob Hill has been the place to be.

When you visit Nob Hill, you’ll see glamorous Queen Annes and Victorians nestled among cool vintage apartment and condo buildings surrounded by modern boutiques and some of Portland’s hottest eateries.

As far back as the 1800’s, Nob Hill has been a neighborhood for the fashionable and coveted. Today, the neighborhood’s focal point is 23rd Avenue. This is where you’ll find such Portland hot spots as Salt & Straw, Blue Star Donuts, St. Jacks and more.

Nearby is Portland’s emerald jewel, Forest Park, where you’ll find hundreds of trails as well as some of Portland’s top tourist sites: Pittock Mansion, the International Rose Test Garden, The Japanese Garden, The Portland Zoo and so much more.  I personally love taking my children to Washington Park, the site of one of the city’s biggest playgrounds. If you have little ones, this is a magical place to let them run their hearts out.

New Episode!

In this episode of House Hunter PDX, we chat with neighborhood locals and step off of 23rd to look at some of the neighborhood’s quieter corners and architectural delights.

Even if you aren’t considering Nob Hill for your housing needs, make sure to keep tabs on the events happening around this neighborhood – catch art/foreign/Sundance films at 21st Cinema, check in with the Portland Children’s Theatre for a show, and don’t forget to bask in the glory of a Timbers game and their eccentric fan-base, The Timbers Army, at Providence Park!

I hope you enjoy this video about one of Portland’s most beloved West Side Neighborhoods – I personally love this neighborhood, and if you’re ever in town and you want the inside scoop, give me a call! As always, my contact info is below!

Eldridge Huntington

Broker

My name is Eldridge D Huntington III: a name I’m very proud to have even if it doesn’t exactly fit my personality. My family and friends call me JR. It’s a long story, but the short answer to the short name is Dallas. I was born in Fargo, raised in Detroit, lived in Chicago for 11 years, and now I’m truly home in Portland. Real estate was not my first career. I studied film at Columbia College. Although I was more interested in cinematography I found I was better suited as a Producer. Assembling and managing crews, scheduling, accounting and being a part of a project from the idea to the time it hits the screen was extremely fulfilling. After 7 years of producing I began working in the art department creating, designing and bringing sets to life.  I worked on Major motion pictures like Nightmare on Elm street, Public Enemies, Time travelers wife, Wild, Grimm and Librarians. With a background in design and long history of managing multiple high level projects I have found a perfect balance as a Realtor. I love multi-tasking, working with a team to pull off amazing feats and using an analytical approach creatively. I moved to Portland in 2009 with my wife Gina. We currently live in the Portsmouth neighborhood with our two daughters, Estelle and Etta. We purchased our first family home in 2011. We found a little yellow bungalow with a cedar fence and fell deeply in love with it at first sight. We attempt to be gardeners in the summer and rehab addicts during the winter. Most of my spare time is well spent making memories with these wonderful people and working on the house. My favorite things about Portland are the access to natural beauty, outstanding food, the kind and adventurous people and the beer.
