Lake Oswego Architecture

lake oswego homes

Lake Oswego architecture – lots of different types around the lake…

Lake Oswego has the coolest architecture!  This beautiful “Southern” colonial is in Lake Oswego’s Village On The Lake neighborhood on the North Shore in Lake Grove.

Village on the Lake is an interesting neighborhood because besides the typical late 1980s homes you would expect, you will also find unique gems like this one and a very Miami Vice house as well. The neighbors in Village on the Lake are all very nice and it is a tight knit community.

Lake Oswego’s Village On The Lake Neighborhood Celebrates Halloween!

Village On The Lake HalloweenVillage On The Lake has some pretty great Halloween decorations!

Lake Oswego has wonderfully festive neighborhoods  and one of those Lake Oswego neighborhoods is Village On The Lake located on the North Shore of Oswego Lake.

Some Village On The Lake neighbors go all out for Halloween with daily trips to one of the several local Spirit Halloween stores to add more to their spooky displays as the holiday approaches.  Neighbor children love seeing the displays evolve.

Lake Oswego View Homes & Other Sites Around Town


There are some amazing Lake Oswego view homes in this city. Lake Oswego OR is a very cool affluent Portland suburb located just Southwest of Downtown Portland and East of Beaverton. It is filled with beautiful homes including some exceptional lake Oswego waterfront homes, but the Lake Oswego view homes are what are really catching my eye on these warm days…

Lake Oswego has many different beautiful sites to see. You can find homes with views of Oswego Lake as well as the region beyond. Portland in general is filled with waterways and the sprawling mansions along the Willamette River are substantial and jaw dropping, but I still keep coming back to the many beautiful views you can capture by living in Lake Oswego. The Lake Oswego Realtors must enjoy their job! I know I enjoy touring these beautiful Lake Oswego homes and neighborhoods!
