Named after neighboring and renowned Reed College, Reed is an intellectual hotbed as well as one of the most desired neighborhoods of Portland. For those who want the tranquility of an almost staunchly residential area and the quaintness of tree-lined streets and picture-perfect houses, look no further than Reed. Nearby Sellwood, Moreland, Brooklyn, Woodstock and Creston provide countless shopping and dining options.
Reed homes are truly unique within Portland in that the majority were built between 1940-1970 and reflect a distinct mid-century vibe. These post-war homes are some of the best examples of the style on the Eastside. The population tends to be made-up of families, retirees, young professionals, and Reed College staff.
