Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Steve Matiaco of Forest Hills Builders worked in the Forest Grove area and on the coast for twelve years. When he came across this property, the view was what caught his eye. He purchased the property, cleared a portion of it and carefully constructed the home where it would capture the panoramic view of Netarts Bay and the surrounding mountains. In 2013, Jim & Dawn Fazio of Moscow, Idaho, joined Steve as partners and in 2015 became its managers with family friend Greg Sands as the local representative. All love and enjoy the peaceful setting, panoramic views and nearby coastal features.

Why the Owner Chose Tillamook, OR, USA:
The perfect setting for nature lovers and family activities. Unrivaled as a quiet, peaceful location. Special off-season rates for individuals or couples, not published. Contact owner for information

The Unique Benefits at this House:
If you are a first-time visitor, you will especially appreciate the notebook in the kitchen. It shares some of the owners' favorite places to visit nearby, complete with detailed directions. There is other information ranging from how to dig clams to who to contact under any circumstance. And enjoy walks on our private, half-mile nature trail through a mature spruce and hemlock forest. Guide booklets are in the house for your use.
