Often called the Hippie Home, this angular abode in Gleneden Seashore, OR, is offered for $799,000.
The house’s extreme form makes it an actual standout on this skinny stretch of shoreline, about 90 miles west of Portland, OR.
“That is very uncommon with slanted partitions—and sort of the nonconforming approach it was designed,” explains itemizing agent Karla Kuhlenbeck, with Windermere, Distinctive Coastal Properties. “It’s the last word treehouse fort. It’s not sensible, nevertheless it’s everyone’s dream to go in there and see that home.”
In-built 1970, the 1,440-square-foot picket home has two small bedrooms and two loos. And suffice it to say, the house wasn’t designed for getting old in place.
“There are little ladders, and the doorways are customized made,” Kuhlenbeck says. “The toilet is hilarious with humorous little sinks going sideways. You sort of need to crawl up a ladder to get to the bathe. I name it a bit of artwork on the sand.”
It was as soon as featured in a 1979 difficulty of Nationwide Geographic and retains a lot of its unique options—woodwork, flooring, and a few home equipment, together with a bespoke gasoline range in the principle dwelling space.
The unique proprietor’s property is able to half with the house. Kuhlenbeck says the dwelling’s architect noticed the itemizing and known as her to clarify how the place bought its nickname.
“He stated he met the homeowners and bought collectively and did this freeform design on the sand, and so they have been all sporting tie-dyed shirts and ponytails,” she recounts. “It was nonconforming and, again within the Seventies, folks have been younger at coronary heart and free-spirited.”
The house is within the Salishan space, identified for coastal properties alongside an eight-mile seaside.
“Everyone is aware of the home,” Kuhlenbeck says. “There are most likely six or seven very distinctive properties [here] that folks can establish with. Most likely the typical house out there’s between 2,200 and three,200 sq. ft, and this one is smaller. It’s the right getaway.”
Brief-term trip leases should not allowed within the space, so the client will most likely use the property as a second house and can seemingly hold its charming quirks intact, Kuhlenbeck predicts.
“In my view, I imagine anyone can go in actually change it, however you would need to change it a lot, what’s the purpose of shopping for it?” she wonders.
