Have you ever wanted to live close enough to walk to a concert?

We wandered through the real estate listings and found some residential properties near musical venues that caught our attention.

So, sing along as we virtually tour places close to these stages:

Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, a historic theater building and performing arts center, and one of the last surviving auditoriums on Portland’s Southwest Broadway, will have the Portland Youth Philharmonic fall concert tonight, Saturday, Nov. 12.

Nearby is a contemporary penthouse with walls of glass framing skyline and mountain views that are as dramatic as anything seen on a stage: 1221 SW 10th Ave. #1807 in Portland is listed at $1.8 million by Chris Suarez of Keller Williams Realty Professionals. The unit, built in 2006 in the Eliot, has two bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and 2,332 square feet (that breaks down to $772 a square foot).

McMenamins Crystal Ballroom, an in-or-out icon since 1914 on Portland’s West Burnside and where the slogan is “on any night, anything can happen,” will host its popular Come As You Are – 90s Dance Flashback on Saturday, Nov. 12.  

Nearby is an 1,181-square-foot condo at 1926 W. Burnside St. #216, which sold in September for $540,000 ($463 a square foot) by David Turra of Residential Realty Northwest. Now, the two-bedroom, 1 1/2-bath unit is for rent for $2,595 a month by Pearl Property Management. The building was completed in 2006 in the pricey Pearl District.

Hold an outdoor concert at 300 NW 8th Ave #1002 in Portland, which has three terraces that stretch more than 1,000 square feet. Under-the-stars living includes a hot tub and greenhouse. The two-level Pearl District penthouse, built in 1909, is listed at $1.675 million by Sean Becker of Sean Z. Becker Real Estate. It has two bedrooms, two baths and 1,872 square feet ($895 a square foot).

What would a 3,662-square-foot, tiptop treehouse look like? Not as luxe as the penthouse at 2351 NW Westover Road #1402 in Portland, which sold for $2.85 million in May by Sasha Welford of Debbie Thomas Real Estate, Inc.

The next door unit at 2351 NW Westover Road #1401 is listed at $3.5 million by Mari Connolly of Realty Trust Group. The condo has three bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths and 4,065 square feet ($861 a square foot).

Moda Center in North Portland, formerly the Rose Garden, is mostly known as an indoor sports arena and home of the Trail Blazers. But Sen. Bernie Sanders and singer Madonna have rocked the stage recently. Coming up: Scott Bradlee’s Postmodern Jukebox on Nov. 17, Winter Jam Feat with Matthew West on Nov. 18. and Amy Grant and Michael W. Smith on Nov. 20.

Nearby, a Craftsman house at 339 N Skidmore St. in Portland is listed at $749,900 by Rex Buchanan of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Reliance Partners. The three-level dwelling with an accessory dwelling unit was originally built in 1906 on a 3,049-square-foot lot. It has six bedrooms, three baths and 2,614 square feet ($287 a square foot).

Aladdin Theater in Southeast Portland, opened as a vaudeville house called Geller’s Theatre on Christmas Day in 1927. During the Depression, it became the Aladdin. On Saturday, Nov. 12, Tyrone Wells’ Cover to Cover will perform.

If you’d like to live nearby to the action, a Craftsman bungalow at 5434 SE Milwaukie Ave. in Portland is listed at $419,000 by Nick Krautter of Keller Williams-PDX Central. The three-level house, built in 1910, has three bedrooms, 1 bath and 2,150 square foot ($195 a square foot).
