51 ACRES AT 90233 MCCRAE RD, FLORENCE OREGON
This property includes pasture, wetlands, a small lake, and a forested ridge rising more than 100 feet above sea level with views east, north and west, including views of the Pacific Ocean, only 0.6 miles west of the property. The property contains several hiking and horse trails and has direct access to miles of Forest Service trails, including access to Baker Beach, a sandy beach friendly for horses and people who appreciate nature without (prohibited) motorized vehicles. Sorry, no ATV’s on the adjacent sand dunes; just untracked ever-changing sand sculpture, peace, and quiet. Elk are frequently seen in the wetlands and pasture and mushrooms can be harvested in the forest.
The center of the property is a saddle in the ridge with 3 acres or more of nearly level ground from which the existing forest can be cleared for building sites. Several other building sites are possible on sloped ground.
A small Cottage has been placed in a clearing on this saddle area, with a view east, across the wetlands and pasture, to C&M Stables and the hills rising inland from the Coast. The Cottage and saddle area are now served by a proven well, public power and land line telephone, as well as wireless services.
The property is approximately 8 miles north of Florence and 3 miles south of Sea Lion Caves. Florence is a major vacation destination on the Oregon Coast with a full range of urban services, a high quality hospital, airport, golf courses and the restaurants and shops of Old Town.
Coming soon. Presently under study in an effort to determine the fair market value for property with this unique combination of attributes. Information and suggestions are invited.
C&M Stables and Baker Beach
The property is in the center of Oregon Coast Horse Country. Directly across Hwy 101 is C&M Stables which, for over 30 years, has provided guided horseback rides, lessons, and boarding. As the former owner of this property and current lessee of the pasture, it is possible that C&M might be willing to assist a future property owner with some property and trail maintenance, and also board or help care for horses in the new owner’s absence. Also across 101, Herman Cape Road leads up to the Cape Mountain (Coast Horse Trail System).
From the west boundary of the property, a Forest Service trail leads to Baker Beach Campground, and then on to Baker Beach, a sandy treasure from which motor vehicles and even kites are prohibited. Some horses do not like kites.
