Latest Rosewood Homes
Rosewood is a residential community within “greater” Lake Oswego, consisting of approximately 800 single-family homes. Most dwellings are single-story, detached structures, built in the 1960s. While some large lots exist, up to two acres in size, most tracts are a quarter acre. No lot is smaller than 10,000 square feet.
Rosewood was developed as a suburban community from the late 1950s through the early 1970s. There are very few homes remaining that pre-date this time, although a stone house built in the 1920s still stands off Pilkington Road.
The neighborhood is characterized by numerous stands of large Douglas fir trees, averaging fifty to eighty years old. Other common tree species in the community include cedar, maple, birch, and cherry.
There are no commercial business zones within the community. Directly north of the Rosewood community boundary is the Rosewood shopping center
Maintaining the affordability and character of the neighborhood is important to its residents allowing the residents to remain living in the neighborhood, reinvest in their property and maintain neighborhood stability. The neighborhood also recognizes that the affordability of Rosewood not only makes the area attractive to residents and potential buyers, but also to those who may wish to develop.
