We are both fans of The Reserve at Ashley Ridge in Felida. Felida is known for its natural open spaces, luxurious neighborhoods, ViewHomes™, desirable schools, and access to recreation. It’s only about a twenty minute commute to both Portland International Airport and downtown Portland.


Our latest ViewHome listing is located in The Reserve at Ashley Ridge. This gated neighborhood has a kayak trail for residents to use for access to Lake River. Lake River is an eleven mile tributary of the Columbia River and offers great wildlife viewing. Portions of the waterway border the Ridgefield Wildlife Refuge. 


The seller has been relocated for work and is disappointed he hasn’t had more time to enjoy the home. It was completed last July, and since he travels a lot, the house is virtually new. Large windows open up to serene views of the valley, and while the lot is .25 acres, with neighbors on each side, the house feels quite private.


The home at 14909 NW 56th Avenue is 3533 square feet and features main-level living. An upstairs bonus room was custom finished to support the weight of a regulation pool table.  Skylights add wonderful light to the large and open space. Want to see more? Contact us today for a private tour. We think it’s priced perfectly at $699,900.
