Located on the western edge of the city of Tigard, Bull Mountain is a community that generally features bigger established homes on larger lots.
Some of the larger older lots have been sold and redeveloped into subdivision with more homes and smaller (comparably speaking) lots. Single family homes can sell for well over $1,000,000 but average just over $320,000. Bull Mountain real estate is some of the most luxurious in all of the Tigard area.
Bull Mountain has a rural feel to it. It has a very good mix of newer developments and old farm houses scattered across the hill. I say hill because Bull Mountain is only a mountain by name. It is a rather large hill, upwards of 715 ft at the top, and can provide some breathtaking views of the Tualatin valley. Many seasonal farms (christmas tree, pumpkin patches, berry stands) lie to the western and southern faces of the hill.

Life on Bull Mountain can provide privacy and quietness of rural life with the convenience of being close to shopping, food and freeways. Bull Mountain has quick access (less than 5 minutes) to shops, grocery, pharmacy, coffee shops, restaurants etc.. to the east towards Tigard.
With Scholls Ferry Rd (OR210) to the north and highway 99E to the south, access to from Bull Mountain to major highways is a short commute. From Bull Mountain to downtown Portland, is just over 20 minutes and traveling to the airport would generally take about 40 minutes.
While most of Bull Mountain lies in rural Washington County, a small portion actually is located within the city limits of Tigard. The city of Tigard has tried in the past to annex most of Bull Mountain as it included in its master plan boundary. The residents in the community of Bull Mountain formed FOBM (friends of Bull Mountain) to help stop the annexation measure. Many of the same residents tried to incorporate Bull Mountain into its own city, but that measure failed as well. Only time will tell what happens with the Bull Mountain area.
