A Bailey Ridge Neighborhood homeThe Bailey Ridge neighborhood is a bit farther out than most new construction neighborhoods, but for home buyers that have one family member working in Salem and the other at Western Oregon University in Monmouth, Bailey Ridge would be a nice compromise in location. The homes are very large and on very small lots, but the floor plans have been liked by home buyers. The neighborhood is a bit cookie-cutter in that the builders had limited floor plans that they offered so it is a matter of paint colors and elevation changes for the facades. Phase 1 is dominated by large two-story homes, but Pahlisch built more one-story homes in Phase II of the subdivision.
If you want a large home with a low-maintenance yard, then this neighborhood might be a good choice for you. Buyers that consider this neighborhood also tend to look at Tuscany Hills or Crestview down south as well.

This neighborhood, despite being outside of the city, is a desirable subdivision to live in as homes are well-maintained. It feeds into Schirle Elementary, Crossler Middle School, and Sprague High School. There aren’t any amenities close to the subdivision so plan to be in the car for about 10-30 minutes to get to grocery stores and schools. This is an extremely car-dependent neighborhood. The only place that is walkable from the neighborhood is the Lively Station, which is a restaurant on River Road. There isn’t anything close by to this neighborhood for daily access.
It is close to the Farmer’s Market for Minto Island Growers which is a local organic farmer and it has good access to Minto Brown Park which has miles of walking/biking trails.
It is part of the city of Salem’s SWAN neighborhood association.
