Hillsboro, Oregon: The Hub of the Pacific Northwest

The nickname of Hillsboro, Oregon says it all: This “Hub City” is right in the middle of everything that makes the Pacific Northwest so incredible.

Located in the lush Willamette Valley, Hillsboro is just outside Portland and a short road trip away from the Oregon coast, the Columbia Gorge, and Mt. Hood — some of the most beautiful, adventure-filled areas around. Here, you have options everywhere for exploration and relaxation.

It’s also a great place to expand your career. California might have Silicon Valley, but Hillsboro is part of the “Silicon Forest,” thanks to all of its notable technology and abundant trees. Here, careers in high-tech, health care, retail, and agriculture abound. 

Whatever your focus, wherever you’re headed, there’s a Pahlisch community just waiting for you to call home.

Whether you’re looking for access to downtown Portland (14 miles away), Portland International Airport (26 miles away), or local employers like Nike (6 miles), Intel (3.5 miles), or Salesforce (6-10 miles), Rosedale Parks puts you in easy reach.

But convenience isn’t the only thing you’ll find here in Hillsboro. There are numerous amenities right in Rosedale Parks. Enjoy a luxurious pool, splash pad, spa, trail system, full gym, community room, open spaces, and much more.

Rosedale Parks offers many different types of residences to fulfill every homebuyer need. You’ll fall in love with our townhomes, cottages, and traditional homes, each boasting the latest high-quality finishes, open floor plans, and trendsetting design that takes the ordinary to extraordinary. The real challenge will be deciding which one suits you best!

Ready to live in luxury? Vendage at the Reserve is the place for discerning tastes and upscale living. 

Its uniqueness earned Vendage at the Reserve the honor of appearing in several well-known industry events, including the 2018 NW Natural Street of Dreams and the 2020 Portland Housing Month.

Guided by each homebuyer’s singular tastes and backed by Pahlisch’s proven commitment to excellence, Vendage at the Reserve homes truly stand out from the rest. Vendage residences are masterfully appointed with finishes of the highest-quality finishes and laid out in thoughtful, open floor plans that make the most of the large lot size. To further elevate the surroundings, every residence can be personalized with a number of unforgettable upgrades. 

Upping these incredible offerings even more, Vendage is attached to the Pahlisch community of Rosedale Parks, giving all residents access to a pool, splash pad, spa, gym, trails, and community room — all exclusively for community residents.

In the Pacific Northwest, outdoor activities and green, open spaces rank high on locals’ list of favorites. At Butternut Creek, residents get a park and a piece of nature all to themselves.

That’s because within the community itself is Butternut Creek Park — a first-of-its-kind on-site amenity from Pahlisch. Situated among the residences, this green oasis has a playground, basketball court, splash pad, trails, and open lawns for playing, kicking back, and basking in the sun.

As shown by this unique, dedicated outdoor space, living in Butternut Creek is perfect for those who love the low-maintenance lifestyle and open airy natural spaces.

Butternut Creek offers various types of homes that fit every stage of life, from young professionals to retirement and everything in between. Our townhomes, cottages, and traditional homes have carefully conceived floor plans, superior material choices, and stunning design elements infused throughout every area.

Like our Pahlisch community of Rosedale Parks, which resides just a few minutes away, Butternut Creek offers easy access to downtown Portland (14 miles), Portland International Airport (26 miles), and local employers like Nike, Intel, and Salesforce (6-10 miles).

Quality of Life

Around our three Hillsboro communities, there is a lot to see, be, and experience. It’s an area bursting with possibility! 

Housing, schools, arts, and amenities are all on the rise in this enticing locale, which once was merely a place to come for work. It’s a place to live and thrive, with everything you’d want or need close at hand. Hillsboro even has two farmers’ markets to start your weekend off right.

South Hillsboro

To serve the rising population, the South Hillsboro development is bringing hundreds of new homes to those looking to lay down roots in the area. With multiple builders, new schools and parks, ample amenities, miles of trails, and great green spaces, the options are endless for residents looking for a new beginning.

Things to Do

Sports fans will love all the chances to get in on the action, such as watching Hillsboro Hops baseball and Portland Timbers T2 soccer at the Gordon Faber Recreation Complex (comprised of Hillsboro Stadium, Ron Tonkin Field, the Softball Complex, and several trails), golfing at Pumpkin Ridge and The Reserve or family-friendly hotspot Top Golf.

You’ll also find local wineries and brewpubs, lots of shopping and dining (check out Orenco Station, Cedar Hills Crossing, and The Streets of Tanasbourne), plus trails and parks to enjoy in every kind of weather, be it plenty of rain, a little snow, or 80-degree, sunny, summer days.

Road Trip Ready

Want to roam a little farther? Because Hillsboro is Portland’s most western suburb, it’s easy for residents to head even further west to hop on hiking trails or explore coastal cities like Cannon Beach and Seaside. Whale watching, events, and festivals of every kind are worth the short, scenic trip.

Just as easily, residents can head east to enjoy the watersports, fishing, hiking, biking, and boating along the Willamette and Columbia rivers.

And it’s always a good time to stop for a sip at some of Oregon’s many wineries, including Argyle, Domaine Drouhin Oregon, Duck Pond Cellars, and Erath, all located in nearby Dundee

Wilsonville, Oregon: Home to our Pahlisch community, Morgan Farm, Wilsonville is located just 30 minutes south of Hillsboro on the edge of Willamette River along the I-5 corridor. Residents of Wilsonville have a great selection of shopping, entertainment, dining, outdoor activities, and parks, along with river access.

Estacada, Oregon: About 45 minutes east of downtown Portland, Estacada is the perfect place to call home for those who are looking for a more rural lifestyle with easy access to the city. Residents of Estacada are surrounded by lakes and rivers and have easy access to recreation on Mt. Hood and beyond.

In Estacada, you’ll also find our Pahlisch Homes community, Campanella Estates.
