Salem Oregon Real Estate-West Salem Neighborhoods-Chatnika Heights

Salem Oregon neighborhood information from your Salem Oregon Real Estate Agent/Consultant.

Chatnika Heights is located in West Salem, which is across the bridge and part of Polk County.  Chatnika Heights is home to a large selection of single-level, two story and split entry homes.  Chatnika Heights is located just outside of the city limits on Glenn Creek Road just past Doaks Ferry Road.  One great benefit of owning a home in Chatnika Heights is that it does sit outside of the city limits. Therefore, your property taxes are lower because you are not paying any city taxes.  This also means that your monthly payments will be lower if your loan includes a reserve account for property taxes.

Most of the homes in this area were built in the 60’s and 70’s.  However, you will find some homes that were built more recently, including some in the past 10 years.  There are many different styles, and streets have mature landscaping and are tree-lined.

If you live on Willow Creek, Lakeview or 31st Ct. you may be treated to a lovely backyard view of a private lake depending on where your home is located.

Many other homes in this neighborhood also have lovely views.  Whether you are looking for a wooded view, or a view across the river to Downtown Salem, there is a home in Chatnika Heights that will give you the view you are looking for.

We are in our rainy season right now, but if the views are this lovely during the rainy season, you can imagine how beautiful they are on a nice Spring or Summer day.

If you love to golf, and desire to live in a golf community, then Golf Club Estates at Creekside may just be the perfect place for you to call home.   Homes in this community start at around $300K and and can go as high as 1+ Million Dollars.  The pricing of homes depends on where the home is located within the community, and also on views and lot size.

Hawaii Northwest Ventures hired local PGA touring professional and golf course architect Peter Jacobsen in the early 90’s to develop Creekside Golf Club. Construction began in 1992, with the current back nine opening in 10/93.  The current  front nine opened in 6/94.  When the full 18 hole championship course was completed, Golf Digest rated Creekside as one of the top new courses in the State of Oregon.  Creekside is a beautiful course to play on and has 3 separate playing areas to cover the full 18 holes.  This also means that there are many options for homeowners wanting to live with a golf course literally in their backyard.

Creekside and Golf Club Estates also has an elegant club house/restaurant that spans 20,000 sq. ft.  The amenities include banquet facilities, a bar and grill/restaurant (Creekside Lakeview Restaurant), pro-shop, locker rooms, health club, outdoor heated swimming pool, snack bar and more.
