The Skylands neighborhood is located in Southeast Lake Oswego and is very beautiful.
Away from the active LO city center and restaurant scene around Millenium Plaza, this area tends to be more private. Not in the sense that you’re not invited in but the community is elevated and has views of Mt Hood out one direction and royal sunsets in the other. Skylands homes for sale tend to be larger and on large lots and are coveted.
Skylands is relatively small with about 425 residents and common for lot sizes are about an acre plus. Many of the properties are anchored with large homes and driveways are gated. Not all, just more then other parts of Lake Oswego. It is important to note that there’s not an issue with crime here, but it’s more of a statement that these are estates and larger homes in Skylands tend to include this feature.
Schools in Lake Oswego are fabulous and of course they are good here as well. Reputable sources rate the quality of education as high. Glenmorrie Park is close by and stretches out to Oregon’s Willamette River. Located at Brookhurst Drive off Highway 43 is 2.3 acres of park and open to the public…very fun to explore.
