But no, Willamette doesn’t have 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. In this neighborhood, you’ll find cottages, craftsmans, bungalows, Victorians, and farm houses. It’s a shabby-chic wonderland, just waiting for thoughtful restoration.
