FISH. PLAY. RELAX. This Farmhouse was built by Florence pioneer Jens Fredricksen with the help of many Scandinavian friends and family from Junction City in 1926. Most travel for shopping or school was by river. Today, this old blue farmhouse is a landmark on Highway 126, in Florence Oregon. This farmhouse, rich with history is located seven miles inland, with 250' of deep-water frontage. Enjoy a micro-climate unlike any other. Expect milder seasons with some shelter from windy conditions in Florence. Siuslaw River is in your backyard. Gated boat dock. Fish On! Old growth Rhodies protect hidden paths and offer a fireworks spectacular display of colors in the Spring. Green spaces to host weddings or lawn sports. Summer brings berries and apples. Outbuildings are a part of every farm. There is a small red barn, in terrible condition, but has achieved Landmark Status. A modern fresh water treatment plant filters, pressurizes, and sterilizes the artisan spring water serving the house. Detached garages shelter 3 cars, plus shop space for hot rods, sand toys or hobbies. Large, paved area can park 8 cars + RV. Entering the home through its double front doors, you'll immediately be captivated by the warm hardwood floors and classic Craftsman details that gracefully guide you from room to room. The main floor is appointed with a spacious living and dining room that flows into the open kitchen, complete with an eating bar. Having a bedroom on the main, your guests will be comfortable with a full bathroom close by. Settle yourself in the glass sunroom, where river views provide a backdrop in motion. Upstairs is the primary bedroom with a separate retreat, a really cute full bath, and 2 more ornate bedrooms. The home is vintage, well maintained, and charming in a vintage kind of way. Enjoy small town living in the heart of the Oregon Coast, with all the ways to FISH, PLAY AND RELAX.
