What’s a Sedge you say?

By Martin Cross, February 5, 2019

What do you do when you want to retire in a small home? Preferably with a view? Especially near the beach but not AT the beach? Why, you buy a home across from a Sedge of course. 

A Sedge? What’s a Sedge you say? Well technically a Sedge (/sej/) ~ noun is a grasslike plant with triangular stems and inconspicuous flowers, growing typically in wet ground. Sedges are widely distributed throughout temperate and cold regions.

But I’m not talking about any ‘ol Sedge. I’m talking about “Sitka Sedge”. Because Sitka Sedge, located just a few miles north of Pacific City, is one of Oregon’s most recent state parks. It’s comprised of 357 acres that includes, 87 acres of marsh, sand and mudflats. Approximately 12 acres of estuary and 157 acres of dunes and uplands. It’s an absolutely beautiful natural area full of animals birds and plants.

Go just to sit on one of the many benches and listen and watch the birds or wander the 3.5 miles of trails leading to the forest, dunes or out to the beach. I was very grateful to be able to help my clent purchase a home adjacent to such a beautiful place and will most definitely return in my off hours!

I have lived in Portland my entire life and spent the last 20 years in the Creston-Kenilworth neighborhood of SE Portland. As such, I know inner SE like the back of my hand and I am very familiar with most neighborhoods in the Portland metro area. After almost 25 years filling people's homes with great design and art I shifted my love of finding great things, for great people, towards Real Estate. My eye for quality and attention to detail serves both my buyers and sellers equally. As a business owner most of my life, I understand the concepts of problem solving, coordination with others, and hard work. I always say..."Great things rarely come from a 40 hour work week." If you want a Portland native who is hard working, responsive, and compassionate - give me a call. I look forward to working with you to find that perfect home or that perfect buyer for yours whether the house be Craftsmen, Modern, brand new, or a fixer.
