Our home, sits on a hill nestled in the tree's and is just 5 blocks from the beach. A 1981 North West Contemporary home, it has vaulted ceilings and a stunning 360 degree views, the Ocean to the west, Heceta Head to the North, Trees to the South and the Heceta Dunes to the East. It sits on a large private lot and is one of 5 houses on a private road. It has ample parking and a 1 car garage. There is also a marvelous wrap around deck, and an outdoor shower. It's open, spacious, airy and a very unique location.
On the first floor you'll find the main living space. A large living room, with sweeping views, a wonderful wood stove, an antique pump organ and a 48 inch flat panel television with streaming internet TV(Roku). A perfect place for a family gathering for winter storm watching, or summer fun. With 1500 square feet inside, and almost that much in outdoor living space on the deck. The pump organ and wood stove add to the fun.
On the main floor you'll also find the kitchen and dining room. The kitchen has a brand new electric range, and microwave range hood, plus the added convenience of a dishwasher. The spacious master suite with king size Tempurpedic bed, and a bathroom with a large garden tub, that you can soak in while enjoying the view of the trees. There is no shower in this bathroom, but you can step right out of the bathroom to the outdoor shower, or use the one on the second floor. Upstairs you'll find a bedroom with twin beds and a bedroom office with a fold flat sofa, and an amazing 2nd floor deck for two. There is also a second bathroom on this floor with a shower/tub combo.
For your convenience there is a full size washer and dryer on the main floor.
Florence is known for it's micro climates, and the High Seas Tree House sits in a great one. Out of the summer fog, and with the wrap around deck there's a place to get out of the summer wind as well.
There is parking for 3 vehicles or 1 truck with ATV Trailer & a car. There is also a a 1 car garage where you can lock up your toys.
I lived in Missoula for over 30 years before falling for a Filipina. In Missoula I had a photography studio for ten years before returning to school and becoming an environmental engineer. After watching Ana Mae
shiver through five winters I took a (great) job in Salt Lake City. But after years of bad air, traffic, hot summers, traffic, and monoculture, we are looking forward to moving to Eugene in the near future, where we can be closer to the treehouse, fresh fish, a great school for our daughter,and clean air.
We bought the treehouse in January 2012 after two years of denial and self deception. From the first time we saw the house we wanted it, but the price seemed a little high, and it wasn’t ON the beach, and what was up with that foundation? We looked at other houses, condos, building lots, all with something to commend them until we remembered that the treehouse
offered all that and more. We love it. From the panoramic view from the loft, to the pedal organ, to the sounds and smells of the ocean, to the
hidden location, we love it.
After living in a 1930 craftsman style bungalow for three decades, the west coast modern treehouse is an appealing change. A great combination of open space, private spaces, wonderful natural setting, our growing library of books and videos, and outdoor living spaces (we haven’t tried the outdoor shower yet). Then there’s the nearby beach, old growth forest hiking trails, fish fresh off the boat or from your own creel, a wide
variety of parks (i.e., sand surfing), delightful Florence, and whale watching.
Florence is known for it's micro-climates, and while it's 60 at the beach it will be 70 here at our house. We're also out of the coastal fog during the summer. Long walks through a wide variety of ecosystems (beach, forest,dunes, estuaries, seabird preserves, rivers, tidepools). Small town atmosphere and pace. Local crafts and restaurants. Rarely below freezing
or above 100.
