Built in 1932, this home is a family treasure that holds many fond memories of summers and holidays at the Oregon coast.
The interior is a window into Oregon coastal history with timeless old photos and paintings, many by family members. A warm patina of age and comfort permeates.
The house had fallen into disrepair over the years and the family wanted to bring back its former beauty in a way that modernized its infrastructure and use. The desire was for all renovations and additions to fit seamlessly with the existing architecture. All of the old fabric and patina of the house was retained or painstakingly matched.
The focus of the renovations were to modernize the kitchen, create a better entry and circulation, and enlarge the west porch overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Details in material and color, including all new windows made to match the originals', restored the historic character to the exterior of the building.
The hope of the family is for this wonderful old matriarch to once again capture the hearts of the younger generation and to continue to be there for future generations.
