Seaside house description

Located just 50 yards from the Lewis & Clark Saltworks and 100 steps from the sand, 1521 Beach is a tastefully restored and cheerfully decorated cottage perfect for smaller groups looking for beach-themed luxury without breaking the bank. It is well-located just one block from the beach and seven blocks south of downtown. Close enough to walk; far enough for peace and quiet.
A few years ago this charming home was restored to its original 1920's style, updated with modern conveniences. The hardwood floors, groove paneled walls, claw foot tub and outside swing are some of the special features you will enjoy. The 1,000 square foot, one-level home offers a cozy living area with three bedrooms and two baths including premium mattresses and professional cookware. Sliding doors off the dining area and master bedroom lead to a large deck and private backyard, which has held many family badminton and croquet matches.
If you close your eyes, and recall memories of vacationing in a quaint seaside village, you can almost smell the brine in the air. Now open your eyes: You're in our home. It's everything you expect from a seaside cottage, and more.

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About: Since growing up in Huntington Beach, California, the ocean and beach have always been defining for me. While living in Seattle Washington, my wife and I wanted to offer our kids that same kind of Beach House experience, filled with memories of beach combing, fire building, shell collecting and fish hunting. We first found this house in 1997 when it wasn't for sale, but pursued it over the next year and finally purchased it in 1998. We felt strongly that the history of the house deserved to have it restored to it's 1920's glory. Sounded good on paper, but added to the challenge. After 6 months of hard work, we welcomed our first renters, who've been enjoying it ever since. From the beginning, it's been our intent to bless others through this house. It's one of those rare things in life that worked out the way you planned. Enjoy.

                  Why Seaside:
                  When we were looking for a location to purchase a beach house as a legacy for our children, we asked a number of local Seattlites about their best memories growing up. Any an odd thing happened: Seaside Oregon kept coming up again and again. We also knew that we wanted our house on the closest street to the beach. So a street called Beach Drive sounded like a good prospect. Lastly, we wanted a house with a history and a beach charm. We found it, and so did you.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Restored hardwood fur floors; Premium mattresses throughout; professional cookware; Two flat-screen TVs; WiFi; 400 feet to the beach. The perfect beach cottage. Seriously. Breakfast on the backyard deck; sunset happy hour on the front porch swing.
