Why we have a crush on this property

Those on the hunt for an idyllic spot to work from home should look no further than this custom-built house an hour from Oregon’s coastline. It’s tucked away in the woods next to a national forest, and brims with mossy green charm.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home was finished in 2019, and is anchored by an open-concept living and dining area with beamed ceilings. A shiny new kitchen with marble counters overlooks that living area, while around the corner, a set of stairs conceals built-in storage space underneath them.

On the second level, the main bedroom offers a good-sized closet. The bathroom, meanwhile, boasts porcelain floors and a subway tile shower. The whole place adds up to one word: cozy.

It’s the home’s outdoor perks that are worth a second look. Just beyond the covered porch, there’s a series of steps leading to the Alsea River, where the home’s new owners can spend their days fishing, swimming, and canoeing. And as the sun starts to set, they can stretch out in the property’s wood-fired barrel sauna. (It’s not a bad way to unwind after a day of Zoom meetings, either.)
