Florence cottage description

We just happened upon this property. A friend of ours was looking for land to build on, he loved the view at the property but the cottage was so quaint and adorable that he couldn't bear to do a tear down. Lucky us...he told my husband about it and he bought it on the spot. Our middle son and I went to look at it the next day...we also fell in LOVE!

We have Douglas fir floors throughout except in laundry/bunkbed room, bath and king bedroom. High toilet, step in tub/shower, pedestal sink in bathroom. Bedroom has new king size 'Select Comfort' bed, chest of drawers, closet and wicker chaise lounge. The blue and yellow themed kitchen has open cupboards and mosaic tile countertops furnished with everything you need to feel right at home. Coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, four burner electric stove and oven, toaster, blender, deep fryer, crockpot and large pots for steaming your crab catch!

The fireplace is so comfy and cozy. Wood is provided behind gate in carport during the winter. For summer use bring your own wood. We use the fireplace almost year round. We have a large couch, recliner and futon (that makes into dbl. bed) in main room. Wood dining table with 4 chairs and four extra card table chairs w/table in bedroom closet. We also have a portable high chair to secure to chair for baby/toddler feeding.

We have improved the trail to the beach twice...the last time with our friendly neighbors help. We enlarged the deck to 800 sq. ft. of unobstructed ocean view. We have a swing set in the back of the property along with a fire pit. There is a teak dining table with umbrella and six large chairs on the deck, plus three chaise lounges. We also have a glass table for four on the deck for your enjoyment. The yard and deck area are closed in for pet protection.

We have had many family get togethers here over the years. Sand Harp Cottage makes a great place to have meals, play games, take beach strolls, watch fabulous sunsets and have lots of fun together.

Come stay at Sand Harp Cottage and make your own memories!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1995

                  About the owner: We have three amazing sons and three fabulous daughters-in-law, plus six marvelous grandchildren! Our Labradoodle, Darby, comes to the beach with us and loves it here. I work in a Middle School Library and my husband is a General Contractor.

                  Why the Owner Chose Florence:
                  Florence is an easy two hour drive from our home outside of Springfield on the McKenzie River and a great getaway. At the beach we like to take naps, sit on the deck, take naps, play games, take naps, watch movies, take naps, gamble a little and then go to bed with window open to hear the ocean.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  We have the nicest neighbors. In fact, our friends that maintain the cottage live right across the street. We couldn't rent this home without them.
