Nestled in the heart of Manzanita, one of Oregon's premier beach towns, this exceptional home seamlessly blends sustainable design with unparalleled comfort and natural beauty. The home's design, guided by local, sustainable architect Tom Bender, reflects a deep respect for the coastal environment. Salvaged wood from nearby sources enriches the floors, ceilings, beams, and trim, imparting a unique character that only aged wood can offer. This commitment to sustainability extends throughout the property, with native plantings and a tranquil koi pond serving as both a decorative element and rainwater catchment.Positioned and designed strategically to showcase mountain range views to the east, glimpses of the ocean horizon to the west and to maximize natural light and cross ventilation. The living space on the top floor provides abundant light and vistas, while the lower-level bedrooms offer a cozy retreat atmosphere."We aimed to create a space that embodies both luxury and harmony with nature," explain the owners, who prioritized quality craftsmanship and enduring materials. Energy efficiency is paramount, evidenced by a well insulated home above and beyond code requirements, and a high-efficiency heat pump ensuring comfort year-round, including on those scarce hot summer days when the AC keeps things cool. Outdoors, the property transforms into a sanctuary with its landscaped gardens, built-in stone seating, and multiple decks that extend from each room, blurring the distinction between indoors and out and emphasizing the seamless transition from interior comfort to outdoor serenity.Located outside the inundation zone yet just a short stroll from the beach and town center, the property offers a rare combination of tranquility and convenience. This home is a work of art that harmonizes with its environment and offers a retreat-like experience in a coveted coastal setting. Furnished and ready for your dreams to come to fruition!
