Clear Lake Neighborhood

Clear Lake is a series of different real estate subdivisions that sit on the northern edge of Keizer Oregon. From the upscale Meadows neighborhood and the Vineyards to the more moderately priced subdivisions of Highland Place and Waterford to the newer construction at Wheatland Meadows. The biggest attractions of these neighborhoods are the excellent school report cards from Clear Lake Elementary and the well-maintained homes. Clear Lake neighborhood is a common choice for Portland commuters due to the exceptional highway access off Brooklake Road.

Some subdivisions have HOA fees and some don’t, so if that is a factor in a home-buying decision take the time to determine if HOA fees are involved.
