The Raleigh Hills neighborhood is between 20 and 30 minutes' drive west of Portland, Oregon. The high quality of the local schools attracts families, so the culture is very youth-oriented. However, young professionals or retired couples need not shy away from it; the highly regarded school districts contribute to stable property values if you eventually sell your property.
The average Raleigh Hills resident commutes 19 minutes each way to work. Approximately seven percent use car pools, six percent use public transportation, eight percent walk to work and five percent work from home. The neighborhood is well served by eateries. Visitors and local residents are spoiled for choice any time of day. Antonio's House of Coffee is a popular haunt for, well, coffee! Located on Scholl's Ferry Road in the 97225 zip code, it is a short stroll to the Portland Golf Club. China Delight on Beaverton Hillsdale Highway offers low-key Chinese and American food.
