Welcome to villa living on the wild Oregon Coast! Whale’s Way opens wide its door to welcome you to this spacious custom home, where rooms and windows have been carefully placed to put the surrounding natural beauty front and center.
Gather together under the cathedral ceiling of the elegant tile-floored front room for visiting, movies and fire gazing, or to chat with your guests who are lingering at the big dining table. Take some time to appreciate the collection of early American antiques, lovingly collected and tastefully deployed. The home’s owners have collected beach art for years, and you’ll find something interesting wherever your gaze lands.
The chef-friendly kitchen is connected to these rooms, but set aside enough to leave your cooking clutter out so you can eat while it’s hot! You’ll find it fully stocked with all the utensils and pans you need to prepare a feast or easy snacks. A powder room off the entry hall is convenient, preserving your master bath’s privacy.
The master suite on the main floor is spacious and easily accessed, with a private bathroom in the back. The master suite has a king sized bed with a peek of the ocean through the trees.
Follow the artwork down the stairs to the surprising second floor and encounter a complete guest apartment, making this an ideal home for couples to share… privacy for everyone! The large bedroom suite here has a King bed and massive bathroom, complete with bidet, soaking tub and walk-in shower. The sinks here are handcrafted Talavera tile, carried home carefully from Mexico just for this house.
Relax in an armchair, or do some work at the table, and if you need a little more privacy, there’s a little reading room set aside from the sleeping area. This room also opens onto the front yard with its own entry.
A third bedroom contains a queen murphy bed, its own full bathroom, and an adjacent coffee bar for the perfect morning blend!
Enjoy nature all around from two large decks, one facing east where sunlight streams through a forest of towering trees, and one west toward the ocean horizon beyond Arcadia Beach, which is a leisurely 5-minute stroll away.
The home's name, Whale's Way, is taken from the poem Sea Fever, by John Masefield. Look for a framed copy of this poem in the front entry, where the author asks for a merry yarn, a quiet sleep and a sweet dream… we know you’ll go down to the seas again and find the Whale’s Way.
