Editor’s Note: LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate showcases premier properties alongside the Willamette River in Oregon.

The beautiful Willamette River flows through some of Oregon’s loveliest cities and feeds the fertile Willamette Valley, the heart of Oregon’s wine country which is home to nearly 600 wineries. Along the shores of the river in the cities of West Linn, Wilsonville and Newberg, luxury estates abound, and residents take advantage of the outstanding amenities and cultural opportunities each community has to offer.

West Linn

West Linn is an affluent city of 25,000, centrally-located just minutes south of Portland. Located along the Willamette River, West Linn has been called the “city of hills, trees and rivers” and offers varied residential property options from upscale residences in the hills overlooking the river to luxury waterfront estates to vineyard acreage. “You’ll find an abundance of small-town charm in West Linn,” says Kendra Ratcliff, vice president and principal broker of LUXE Christie’s International Real Estate. With excellent schools, a quaint downtown, tree-lined streets, abundant parks, and recreational activities, West Linn is hailed as a superb, family-friendly community.

Wilsonville

Situated just south of Portland along the Willamette River is the city of Wilsonville. This community of 24,000 residents is perfectly located for those looking for a suburban or semi-rural lifestyle while having convenient access to downtown Portland and Portland International Airport. With excellent access to the river, residents enjoy boating, swimming and other water sports. “While the river is a big draw in Wilsonville,” Ratcliff says, “you are also able to find acreage properties with equestrian facilities, vineyards and luxury estates. It’s a diverse city that combines a great school system, parks, restaurants, and a thriving business community.”

Newberg

In the heart of Oregon’s wine country is Newberg, home to a vast array of award-winning vineyards and wineries as well as a historic downtown filled with restaurants, charming boutiques, art galleries, and a world-class cultural arts center. For water enthusiasts, through Newberg, the Willamette River is calm and quiet with little coves and beaches to stop and enjoy a swim or a picnic. “A wonderful thing about Newberg real estate is that you’ll find both extraordinary properties in the rolling hills among acres upon acres of vineyards and distinctive estates along the shore of the Willamette River,” explains Ratcliff. “Newberg is a quintessential wine country town. It has the feel of Napa or Sonoma but without the price tag!”
