Property description

Why not have a huge view from your window while you curl up on a couch with a book.
Wend your way down the ribbon of highway that is 26 to this dreamy town of old family shingle clad homes, much like what you would see in Cape Cod. Go a mile past Seaside to the Dairy Queen, turn west into Gearhart city center...the cute grocery and Pacific Way Cafe. You are almost there.
Unique because of the amazing outlook, you will gasp when you walk inside this house. You see the ocean. The light is inspiring...and calming.. Tillamook Head on the left and views of Washington on the right...amazing. .walk down the path through the dunes and wiggle your toes in the sand. Pheasant, pelicans and deer, plus two coyotes this season and whales make this feel like you are so close to nature. Last year we had 64 big elk sleeping in our yard.

Designer touches like a new Pottery Barn sofa, elegant sheets and a ship hatch coffee table are all fun.

Just a pitching wedge from the first green of Gearhart Golf Course and a short stroll (5 minutes)to McMenamin's Sand Trap brew pub, this home is perfectly located for privacy and convenience.

Designed by the architect Moran in 1945 for Jerry Porche, our special home sits on three big lots at the end of a long driveway up the hill. Two of the 5 bedrooms are in an annex with another sitting room, bathroom and pet area.....great for teenagers or family members. The annex is brightly decorated with kites and body surfing boards. You'll love the cheerful rooms and wind protected porch. Lots of off street parking and level play yard add to the appeal. Children and pets are welcome, ten people maximum plus a baby in our port-a-crib.

Gearhart beach -walk through the dunes 3 minutes

Car: Recommended

Map site is not correct.. We are located in Gearhart proper (Just a few minutes north of bustling Seaside) just north of the Sand Trap and just west of the first green of the Gearhart Golf Course. We sit on a slight rise with a fabulous view of the ocean from Astoria to Tillamook Head. From Hwy 101, go west on Pacific Way. Go into Gearhart toward the ocean and take a right on Marion. Go past the big Gearhart by the Sea and we are on the low ridge on the west side of the street...ideal quiet location. There is a path from our house directly to the beach through the dunes.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1975

About the owner: This is a family home and we are an old Gearhart /Portland family. We have been involved with the starting of the 4th of July Parade and writing of the first book 'History of Gearhart' . We also designed the Gearhart flag you see all around town.The owners are the two people on the left, brother and sister.

Why the Owner Chose Gearhart:
View view view ! Breathtaking light. And we have a quiet but central Gearhart location.....not Highlands or Pinehurst or Surf Pines. We are on the small hill between the Gearhart Golf Course and the ocean. We have a new firepit for marshmallow roasting and s'mores.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peaceful .....so very peaceful. All you can hear at night is the crashing of waves.....yet walkable to everything including the bakery and store and golf and beach. I am amazed by the light flowing into the large windows, even on a cloudy day. The open floor plan offers a fun family experience where the cook gets to interact with all the inhabitants. We do not rent it for weddings. We are not a gourmet kitchen with unbeachy granite counters - just a fun beach kitchen, fully equipped. And the patio is spacious with two tables...glass walls protect you from the wind.
