Laurelhurst home in autumn
A typical home in Laurelhurst
Sunrose Condominiums at 28th & Burnside
Laurelhurst is an enchanting southeast neighborhood just a short commute from downtown Portland. Originally intended to be a high-class residence, only single-family detached homes were allowed. No apartments or commercial buildings of any sort were could be built within its boundaries. Visitors are welcomed by stone arches, built in 1910, at the entrance of this historic neighborhood. The Kerns, Hollywood, Mt. Tabor and Sunnyside neighborhoods surround the area.
Laurelhurst is populated with magnificent old growth trees and immaculately tended gardens on gently curving streets. People are drawn to the area for its urban amenities, great schools and beautiful homes offering a modern lifestyle in a classic and historic setting.
Laurelhurst Portland homes come in all shapes and sizes, from a beautiful 1,800 square foot bungalow to a large 12,000 square foot Mediterranean mansion overlooking Laurelhurst Park. True to the unique Laurelhurst style, these two contrasting homes could be right across the street from each other. Other styles include foursquare, arts and crafts cottages and modern construction.
The original plan from 1909 contained a provision that forbade any business from operating within the boundaries of the neighborhood and has been strictly enforced over the decades. So technically speaking there are no businesses in residential Laurelhurst. But a vibrant and exciting business community has developed in very close proximity.
The neighborhood’s commercial district boasts gourmet food stores and bakeries, restaurants, urban boutiques and coffee shops. Laurelhurst Market was recently named one of America’s best new restaurants by Bon Appétit magazine. Diners feast on gourmet steak dinners, or cook their own with high quality meat purchased from the full-service butcher shop. Movie lovers congregate at the historic Laurelhurst Theater established in 1923. One of the first art deco style theaters of its period, the theater’s four screens show modern, independent, art and classic films, while serving an assortment of handcrafted beers. Laurelhurst is also adjacent to Lloyd Center, Oregon’s largest shopping mall.
Covering over 26 acres, the breathtaking Laurelhurst Park’s expansive green space and aromatic evergreen trees are a welcome distraction from the fast-paced city life. The design was inspired by New York City’s Central Park, and offers a variety of amenities including a duck pond, picnic areas, walking trails and a community center. In February 2001, the park was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the first city park ever listed.
