If you are looking to purchase real estate in Salem Oregon consider Laurel Springs. In the fall, the colors in this neighborhood are truly stunning. Like old friends, the oaks and the maples reach across the street to touch each other. Started in about 1960, Laurel Springs is characterized by large trees and well-kept landscapes. It is the appeal of this neighborhood.
Bounded by River Rd to the west and Azalea to the east, 90% of this neighborhood sits between Acacia and Madrona. A few streets sprawl onto the other side of Madrona.
If you approach this neighborhood from River Rd you will enter it on Acacia. Lined with trees, the entry to this neighborhood is consistent with what lies within. Most of the homes in the neighborhood were built in the 1960s and 1970s so the architecture is consistent with that time. Larger lots and ranch-style homes make up a good chunk of this neighborhood.
Most of these homes were built 30-40 years ago, so many of them need some sort of updating. The flip side is that you get a larger yard with established trees. Homes that are completely updated in this neighborhood will go for a premium.
This neighborhood is served by Candalaria Elementary, Leslie Middle School, and South Salem High School. As with all schools boundaries are subject to change from year to year, so double-check the boundaries prior to moving.
