Gorgeous area – mountains, beach & wine.
Would like to do an exchange in England, Ireland or Scotland in summer of 2018 for 2-3 weeks.
Lovely Colonial style 4 bedroom, two bath, 2800 SQ feet, surrounded by large yard, garden with oak trees. Two story updated family home, living room, comfortable family room with TV, internet, two fireplaces, all appliances and amenities, deck and patio. Walk to grocery and restaurants close by but the home is in a safe, quiet neighborhood.
Salem is 150,000 in scenic valley between coast and mountains. It is the capital city of the state, university town, 16 miles from quality tax-free factory outlet stores( incredible bargain shopping). Lots of wine tasting and touring in area. Parks, fishing, hiking, outdoor recreation of all sorts is near.
In the heart of Willamette Valley wine country, 60 miles to gorgeous sandy beaches, 30 miles to mountains, camping, hiking, wilderness, 40 miles to Portland-upscale arts, dining and entertainment or funky street markets. Nice urban neighborhood, close to all amenities, shops, restaurants, groceries, 10 minutes to downtown Salem, state capitol, shopping, parks and outdoor activities. Spectacular mountain waterfalls are 30 minutes away and wonderful hiking in pristine forests. Salem has many parks with all kinds of facilities and a scenic natural area along the river is 5 minutes from my house with trails, a dog park, kids playground, bike paths and scenic views.
There are many golf clubs in the area. We are 5 minutes from Salem Golf Club (open to public) and within 50 miles of probably 25 more golf clubs available to public. Many are very scenic, at the beach or in the mountains.
