Shumway Neighborhood Real Estate
Located just 10 blocks from downtown Vancouver, the Shumway neighborhood boasts quiet streets, an abundance of mature shade trees and a broad range of vintage home styles. Many of the period housing in this area remains owner occupied, and residents here are known for their pride of ownership and friendly demeanor.
In addition to the period homes that grace Shumway’s shady streets, several newly constructed duplexes and condos are available at reasonable prices, most with private lawns and off street parking. A small portion in the northwest corner of this attractive neighborhood has been reserved for commerce, providing residents immediate access to local shopping, dining and services. Fourth Plain Boulevard, Interstate 5 and Vancouver’s eclectic Main Street define Shumway’s borders and provide easy access to nearby business districts and outlying recreational destinations such as Multnomah Falls and Crown Point.
Vancouver School of Arts and Academics is also located in the Shumway neighborhood, offering middle and high school programs aimed at enhancing students’ abilities in the arts and sciences. The VSAA also operates a community center and advocates for improved quality of life for students, their families and neighbors. Adjacent to the VSAA is Shumway Park, featuring modern play equipment, benches, picnic tables and a walkway that connects the neighborhood to the school’s athletic track. The tiny Leach Park is also located within Shumway’s borders and boasts a quarter of an acre of rolling lawns under enormous shade trees, benches and a children’s playground.
