The property has frontage on the Ocean and Myrtle Point Championship par 72 Golf Course. The Oceanfront would be considered medium bank with easy access to the beach below. A road cross cuts the width of the property to the water. This provides easy access for even a vehicle with a boat trailer to drive right to the water.
The beach is a mix of sand and small pebbles to smaller basketball size rocks. It is evident that over the years the larger rocks where set aside to expose the sand and smaller pebbles. There is ample space on the waterfront to build a structure or create as much entertainment space as needed.
The North East end of the property which is divided by Highway 101 fronts onto Myrtle Point Golf Course. 2/3 of the land base is below Highway 101on the Ocean and 1/3 fronting the golf course. From the property bordering the golf course, the clubs parking lot is immediately fronting the property. Beyond the parking area, the view from the property is of the Clubhouse, 1st tee and fairway, #10 tee and fairway, #18 Tee, fairway and green and lastly to the corner of the property is the clubs driving range. The top half of the property below Highway 101 I would estimate to be approximately 5 acres is virtually a private park covered in towering cedar and fir trees.
Over the past 5 decades this has been a family estate. There are three homes on the property. Two on the waterfront and one on the Golf Course. The original home built on the waterfront is a solid level entry 1300 square foot +basement 5 bedroom home. Featuring a wrap around sundeck and a fantastic south west view out over Malaspina Straight and Myrtle Rocks. Behind the home is a 24x36 workshop/garage.
The second home is a newer 24x36 level entry manufactured home with covered parking and an expansive sundeck. The third home on the Golf Course encompasses a 28x70 foot shop with 20 foot ceilings. The living space is approximately 850 square feet.
