On the northern Oregon Coast between Warrenton and Gearhart, near Astoria and Seaside, lies the gated community of Surf Pines, Oregon. Bordered by the Pacific Ocean on the west, and the peaceful Sunset Lake on the east, the residential community offers quite a few beautiful homes in a serene setting where quiet rural living meets fun beach life.
And a sleek three-bedroom home is looking to attract new residents to the area.
Recently listed for $1,250,000, the property was designed by Pacific Northwest architect Paul McKean, and reflects the respected architecture firm’s design vision.
“We believe that there is beauty in simplicity, and that good architecture improves lives and respects nature,” Paul McKean Architecture’s About Us page tells us, and the words could describe their Surf Pines, Oregon project to a T. “Our designs tend to be simple, efficient and materials-driven. This approach lends itself to smaller homes that are cost-effective, durable and energy efficient.”
Custom built for its current owner, the founder of Schoolhouse Electric (a high-end lighting and home goods manufacturer based out of Portland, OR), the architecturally distinct home offers panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and of the area’s beautiful natural landscape through its western-facing, floor-to-ceiling windows.
Sitting on a one-acre lot, the elevated modern beach retreat offers 1,443 square feet, three bedrooms, and two baths.
Inside, an expansive great room brings together the living, dining, and kitchen areas, and is flooded with natural light thanks to its expansive windows. There’s also an adjacent patio that offers additional seating and a great spot to enjoy the views.
Envisioned for entertaining, the Oregon home features a primary bedroom with an attached bathroom, a large bunk room with a seating area, and a second guest bedroom and bathroom.
There’s also a second outdoor area to entertain guests underneath the upper-level patio and a fire pit with built-in benches next to the house. To top it all off, the beach is just a short walk away.
The Surf Pines, Oregon house is listed with JP Faherty, Matt Robinson, and Grant Ludwick of The Agency Bend.
