Top 5 Most Fabulous Pools: Condos For Sale Edition

There’s no doubt about it: having a pool is an all-time luxury. And after the insane heat wave that just swept Portland, we wouldn’t blame anyone for fantasizing about having a pool to cool off in. But what about making those daydreams a reality?

Owning a pool isn’t for everyone. It requires both time and money for maintenance, and that’s just a lot of hassle added on to home ownership. That’s where the beauty of the condo comes in. If you live in a condominium with a pool, the responsibility of taking care of the pool get taken off of you. And as for the financial component, yes, you’ll likely pay a somewhat higher HOA fee. But since everyone in the building also contributes, you’re paying a fraction of what you would to maintain a pool all on your own. Communally sharing a pool, then, makes an excellent choice for those who want to skip the hassle but still have pool access.

So let’s check out five of the most exciting pools in Portland – all with condos for sale right now! To find these, we performed a Custom Keyword Search under the condos/townhomes section.

#1 – 810 NW Naito Parkway F24


We’ll kick things off today with a lovely one bedroom right on the Willamette River. This is a truly special location. You’re just steps from the Pearl, but this riverfront property feels a world away. This homey condo comes with views of the river from some rooms. It lives large with its open concept and hardwood floors.

Outside, you’re in for plenty of treats. Imagine entertaining along the river at the communal fire pit. Or, using the condo’s high end gas BBQ to grill up some tasty morsels in the summer before taking a stroll along the riverbank. And let’s not forget the pool, which also comes with a separate hot tub. This pool is classic, with plenty of bright, inviting lawn chairs and a good mix of sun and shade. Bonus point: it has great views of the beautiful Broadway Bridge.

#2 – 635 SE Linn St. F


Need a little more space but still want those river views? Let’s hop over to Southeast Portland and this quiet corner of Sellwood. Welcome to the Waverly Yacht Club. Here you’ll have all the river access you could want. Or, take a bike ride on the Springwater Corridor. You’ll have plenty of room for all your toys, as both bedrooms enjoy walk in closets. Add onto that the attached two car garage, and your storage needs should be well taken care of.

This condo will have you feeling like you’re on vacation even though you’re at home. Huge windows with views of the river let in plenty of light. But a huge fireplace creates a warm centerpiece for the living room, and will banish the chill from any winter day. What about a summer day, though? Not to worry. Check out this gorgeous pool and hot tub with views of the river and boats.

#3 – 4348 SW Dickinson St. #5


If you prefer a quieter neighborhood, this next listing might be for you. Tucked into a charming pocket of Southwest Portland, this home feels more like a house than a condo. Surrounded by mature trees, you’ll feel right at home. This one is what’s called a “cosmetic fixer” – meaning, you might want to replace the carpet and paint the walls, but the major structural components are all in good shape. Also, this property has enjoyed only one owner since it was built in 1973, a good sign. This complex’s pool is pristine and in a park-like setting.

Next up, we’ll stay in Southwest but a little closer to the action. Just steps from Portland State University, this condo is surrounded by a canopy of trees, though which you can see Mt. Hood. Hardwood floors, a central fireplace, and a wide balcony make this one instantly comfortable. As a bonus, it comes with a storage unit for all your favorite toys.

Now, about the pool. Oh, wait – pools. This complex includes access to both an indoor and an outdoor pool. So no matter what the weather, you’ll be able to get some exercise or just get a good soak in!

Finally, let’s go out with a bang. This condo has no shared walls – meaning more privacy for you, but still with all of the perks of condo life. Underground parking and bike storage will keep you mobile. Or, settle in and relax right where you are. And where better to do that in the city than a rooftop?

Yes, that’s right. This pool is a rare find in Portland – a rooftop pool with 360 degree views of the city and the surrounding hills. With plenty of lounge space around the rest of the roof, this is a true gem. Summers up here will be pretty hard to beat!
