On the edge of wine country, west Salem is a mix of homes. While there is one area of West Salem that has older homes, most of the homes are mid-century to new construction in age. West has its share of upscale neighborhoods like West Hills Estates, The Heights, and West Meadows Estates. It also has Salem’s only 55+ single family home community, Salemtowne.
Hills and views of the valley are abundant in West Salem neighborhoods. From new construction out in the Brush College neighborhoods to the old and lush neighborhoods like Chatnika Heights, Kingwood Hills, or Breckenridge, there are many kinds of homes to choose from out west.
Some will complain of the bridge traffic to West, but the crunch is really Wallace Rd. A recent construction project has helped with traffic flow. A large remodel of the Roth’s grocery store, access to the pedestrian bridge via Wallace Marine Park, and good schools make living out west an easy choice for many home buyers.
