Yesterday, Kelley and I decided to hit the streets and explore. Our target neighborhood; Argay Terrace. Argay is east of Parkrose in NE Portland and begins at NE Fremont and 122nd. The neighborhood borders 1-84 to the south and continues up Fremont until it dead ends at 148th. Ranches with daylight basements on oversized lots line the streets. Wrap around decks and homes with vaulted ceilings and topiary landscaping are all part of the appeal of this well-established and quiet gem. It’s a little slice of midcentury heaven. If you’ve been day dreaming about more space and are open to the possibility of living a little further out, Argay Terrace could be your jam.

It hasn’t been taken over…yet.
