Real estate in the Palma Ciea Villa Neighborhood
Located along the Willamette River where it bends to head North is the Palma Ciea Villa Neighborhood. Developed in the 1960 and 1970 time frame for the most part, homes tend to have a larger backyard for Oregon standards and are mostly one-story homes. Homes are predominantly one-story, ranch-style with most of the two-story homes facing the Willamette River. Real estate is desirable here due to the stability of the residents in the neighborhood, well-maintained homes for the most part, and the larger lot sizes. Several homes in this neighborhood will have 1/5 to 1/4 acre lots. People do live in this neighborhood for a long time so it is common to see well-maintained but dated homes. This is a great neighborhood for sweat equity projects.
There is a small local park, Palma Ciea Villa Park that serves the neighborhood, and it is close to Keizer Rapids Park as well. Keizer Rapids Park has a fenced dog park, a disc golf course, Big Toy playground, and ample open grassy space. This neighborhood is very close to amenities, such as coffee and groceries on River Road, but far enough away that there isn’t a lot of traffic. You could walk to Mommy and Maddi’s for a weekend breakfast or grab a quick coffee and parfait at Bentley’s coffee and then head back home.
