Why the Owner Chose First Addition, Lake Oswego, OR, USA:
Proximity to parks, access to Portland, and a safe friendly community with great schools attracted us to this neighborhood over 23 years ago. We love it and have raised a family here taking advantage of all the community has to offer. We still live just 5 blocks away and are here to help you enjoy exploring the beautiful northwest from the comforts of our sweet cottage.
