Sunset is a neighborhood in transition. It’s mixture of mid-century ramblers, split-levels, and cottage-style homes, along with newer construction on a grander scale. The Sunset neighborhood had a decidedly rural feel with some larger lots and river view potential. Much like nearby historic Willamette, Sunset doesn’t have the graceful sidewalk boulevards or tree-lined streets that set the tone in newer West Linn neighborhoods. Not every home is well cared for and not every yard is well tended. But the neighborhood is charming nonetheless, perhaps because of its casual, laid-back nonchalance. It’s a handy-man wonderland, just waiting for your thoughtful renovation.
