Yes! We have some wonderful upscale higher end homes located in beautiful neighborhoods all close to restaurants, shopping, parks, and incredible schools. I would start in the Camas, East Vancouver area and work from there. I know you get lots of responses but if you would like to take some time and visit these areas I would be more than happy to spend some time and show you the area. Are you moving up from California? I did so about 10 years ago and I am in love with the Pacific Northwest! Feel free to call or email if you would like to chat a little.

As a reference, you can select the Vancouver Home Prices and Heat Map from the webpage based on searches by Zip Code (98683, 98684, 98682.. etc) on Trulia.
http://www.trulia.com/home_prices/Washington/Vancouver-heat_map/
This will show Avg. listing price for homes -- as you scan the map, you will see the names of the neighbohoods pop up. This map if for the incorporated part of Vancouver -- unincorporated areas of Vancouver will have upscale neighborhoods as well.
Hope this of some help,
Mary

As to your question about the Felida vs. Camas/Lacamas/fishers landing area. In my opinion, neither could be defined as rural. Felida is north of Downtown Vancouver while Camas/Lacamas /Fishers landing is east. Fishers Landing being the closest to downtown with Prune Hill between Fishers Landing and Camas. The eastern areas are generally 'newer' but Felida has some newer and beautiful homes as well. As Jeanne pointed out, the eastern areas are closer to the airport. Prune Hill homes can provide beautiful views of the Columia river and the Portland lights. Home prices tend to be $500,000 to over $1M. Hope this helps...

We moved to Vancouver from the bay area. We are on Prune Hill, in the Grand Ridge subdivision which is in the area of Camas on the border with Vancouver. It's right off the highway that takes you to the airport and Portland so the location is great for travel. But it feels relaxing and beautiful, not as congested as the suburbs off Route 5. Hope that helps!

Wow! Thank you. That is some great information to get us started! Would it be correct to say that the Felida area is more "suburban" and less "rural" than the Camas/Lacamas/fishers landing area?

We moved from Cupertino,CA to Vancouver in fall of 2004 and rented for a year -- the inventory then was so low it was very difficult to find a home with a decent backyard, great schools, and no HOA. We did finally find one in an area near Fisher's Landing -- My husband was offered a job with Johns Hopkins University which we could not turn down so we moved to the Baltimore area and our home is for sale -rnls 7091380 - http://VisualTour.com/show.asp?t=1208200
The Maplecrest area is very upscale -- brand new Union High School and great parks nearby
Hope you will have a look,
Good luck with your search!

That is helpful. We are coming from the Danville/Alamo area specifically. This area is known for the best schools, and family friendly community with a small town feel. It feels small town, but no conveniences are done without as the city of walnut creek is only one exit down the freeway and SF is simply 40 min. It is one of those communities that because of the schools and other "niceties" it is extremely sought after. It is extremely "suburban". I do realize that duplication isn't possible, but if there was a "sought after" suburban community in Vancouver, where would that be? Felida? Lacamas shores? Fishers Landing? All of the above? I don't really know about the topographical areas or how important they are (water, prairie, mountain, etc) I am more interested in finding a nice "suburban" community with great schools and many family friendly booming activites ( town basball league, High school girls golf, etc.)

Fisher's Landing/Fisher's Landing East is very suburban. Homes new to newish. Mostly built in the 90's or newer. It has tons of shopping, restaurants, great schools and it is near Camas (if you like forested parks). Camas feel rural to me, it is small and has a cute small downtown, mostly older homes vs. Fisher's, but there are newer areas. The down side to Camas is the smell. The paper mill smell is too much for me. I looked into homes there and didn't like the price for the age of most homes and the smell...yuck. If you have kids, move to Fisher's Landing.

We are looking for something not so rural, but upscale. We have heard of Lacamas Shores, which sounds very nice, however seems to be a nice pocket in the middle of nowhere. Is there an area that is upscale with homes 3000 sf and up (not including the basement), great schools, and not so rural that our teenagers will never forgive us for moving them from the san francisco bay area? We dont have an interest in 5 or more acres....so less property, however less than 1/4 acre wouldn't be desireable for us either. The suburban life is appealing to us....nice community(upscale), spacious homes, convieniences of shopping, and great schools....is this anywhere in Vancouver Washington that fits this criteria?

Like Gloria says, they are located in many areas in and around the county. The only question is what type of property would be appealing to you. River front, prairie or mountain, treed or not. What are you looking for?

Yes Yes Yes....at bargain prices. (or relatively so). Great homes in Great neighborhoods thru out the county. Hockinson has the highest per capita income (and home prices to match) in the Portland Metro Region and recently written up in the newspapers. Great River View Estates, Upscale? 1/2 acre, 1 acre, 5 acre 10 acre? river views, ...what is your pleasure....12 car garage?? 4, 5 or 7,000 square feet..its all here....when you have a guide.
