Towering into the treetops with views of the ocean peeking through, this holiday home in Oregon is a meticulously restored example of the mid-century, northwest, contemporary style.
Originally designed by long-time Oregon resident, preservationist and architect Marvin Witt, it’s three stories nestled into the branches have the feel of a modern treehouse.
Somewhat inverted in how the spaces are configured, the top floor houses the living and dining areas with a fully equipped kitchen and walls of glass that immerse you into the forest.
The ground floor master bedroom features its own sitting area and a private deck, while the second floor includes two double bedrooms, one with tree top views of the forest and the ocean in the distance, and the second with it’s own private balcony.
Sleek but down to earth, this is the Pacific Northwest at its stylish best.
Self check in, wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, safety equipment, parking on site.
The quiet Neahkahnie Beach neighborhood in Nehalem along Oregon’s northern coast, is just a short walk along the shoreline into the picturesque little town next to the bay.
One of a trio of charming and historic villages nestled around the Nehalem River and Bay, nearby Manzanita, Wheeler and Nehalem are within the state’s northernmost Tillamook County and are part of some of its most photographed scenery in Oregon.
Stretching for hundreds of miles along the Pacific and the Cascade headlands, Tillamook county’s pristine beaches and protected wetlands are home to an extensive network of Nature Conservancy and state park lands, dotted with scenic rainforests including the Siuslaw National Forest and the Cascade network with a multitude of bird, marine and protected wildlife.
Small and quaint, the towns are quiet in off season and swell with tourists in summer. Located ninety miles west of Portland, it’s some of the loveliest and best protected coastline in the state.
