Portsmouth Real Estate
Tucked in the middle of North Portland, Portsmouth has some picturesque streets with beautifully improved homes and some neighborhoods still in transition. Diversity, Stability and Affordability still form the foundation of this neighborhood, a place with a human scale.
The neighborhood is as a whole a very quiet and peaceful place. This is a neighborhood that encourages its residents to walk. There are pedestrian routes through the neighborhood that connect its parks, schools, and commercial and community services. These routes are well-marked and include amenities such as pedestrian scale lighting standards, water fountains, benches, litter cans, storefront businesses, and well-maintained, attractive parks. Portsmouth has connections to trails leading into the Smith & Bybee nature area as well.
On both sides of Lombard Street between Fiske and Portsmouth there are a number of storefront businesses. The neighboring St. John’s has supermarkets, specialty food stores, restaurants, coffees shops and boutiques.
