My Favorite Neighborhoods, Part Four: Golfing

Real Estate Agent with Home Finders SVC Real Estate, Florence, OR

There are two golf courses in Florence: Sandpines Golf Links and Ocean Dunes Golf Links Both are surrounded by lovely homes. Sandpines is still in the process of being developed with plans in process for townhomes and additional single family residences. Sandpines has a stunning Northwest Lodge style clubhouse with a restaurant, Tavolo's, which is open to the public serving Northwest style fare such as halibut, steak and a vegetarian pasta primavera. The Bistro at Ocean Dunes is also open to the public and offers unusual dishes like roasted beet and arugula salad. Neither golf course neighborhood has very many homes for sale at the moment. Sandpines has four ranging in price from $327,000 to $699,800 (this one has a fabulous view of the greens, high end finishes throughout and an elevator). Home Owner's Association dues are only $240 a year which includes road and gate maintenance. Ocean Dunes has two homes priced at $369,000 and $439,900. Some of my favorite homes in Ocean Dunes are the Cottages, a gated planned unit development of generously sized homes (2200 square feet is not unusual), some of which have a pond view. Home Owner's Association dues are $75 a month and include power washing once a year and window washing twice a year in addition to the usual road maintenance and so forth. Both golf courses are within the city limits, are on city services, and are close to shopping and all of Florence's wonderful ammenities like boutique shopping in Old Town, the beach and Freddies, our extraordinary grocery, department store and coffee shop. So if golf is your passion, if you want to look out on the greens while you sip that Cup of Joe, you have two beautiful places to choose between. You can view these homes on my website:
