Gearhart house description

A gorgeous cedar home nestled in over four acres of dunes and sea grass on the ocean on Oregon's north coast. Floor to ceiling windows flood all the rooms with light. The house is fully furnished with comfortable furniture and antiques. Large rooms accommodate many activities and the deck awaits your lounging and meals. Walk steps through a path on our private property to the beautiful beach; play croquet in the yard or fix dinner on the BBQ or s'mores in the fire place.

Located in a gated community (recently acclaimed as one of the 10 best in the country), half way between Seaside and Astoria, there are roads for riding, trails for hiking and history to explore. Nearby Astoria, Seaside and Cannon Beach offer theater, art and cooking schools. History museums and Lewis & Clark sites dot the area.


Credit card accepted through PayPal.: The house was remodeled in the winter of 2010 and is even more wonderful. Both bathrooms were completely remodeled with new high-end fixtures and floor and wall treatments. The kitchen has granite counters, tile floors and top quality appliances. We installed a gas furnace, fireplace and on-demand water heater and an outdoor shower. The yard can accommodate badminton and croquet as well as providing a wonderful play space for children while adults relax on the deck and new flagstone patio. The outdoor shower cleans kids and dogs.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          About the owner: Charlie and I are semi-retired: he is a playwright and director and I was Head of a private elementary school. We are enjoying this phase of our lives with time for family, travel, and entertaining.

                          Why the Owner Chose Gearhart:
                          I have always loved the beach and the peaceful days, beautiful night skies and the quiet. I wanted a house on the oceanfront, but desired privacy and protection from the wind, This house has everything I desired - nestled in the dunes and sea grass but only two minutes down my own path to the beach for those long walks, watching the pelicans and enjoying the changing sea.
