I was on Facebook today when I saw a post from Realtor.com about a home for sale at 36199 River Point Dr, Astoria, OR 97103 that used to be a small power plant for the US Navy. Built in 1940, this two story brick building stands out as it is located in a typical looking residential neighborhood. Most of the homes in the neighborhood look to be valued from $389, 000 to $597,000.
This newly remodeled home is listing for $675,000 and comes in at 3,518 square feet. With only 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, there is quite a bit of open space in the home. Built from brick, steel and concrete, some might say it is a fortress. Though the outside looks quite industrial, the mondern amenities combined with the the vintage feel is quite unique.
The master bathroom is floor to ceiling institutional tile. A modern free standing bathtub, walk in shower and a long sink like you might find in a high school restroom.
The home is very loft-like. Something that you might find in the older areas of downtown Portland. This old power plant is located just off the Youngs River and of all things, has a bocce ball court outside.
Astoria was a big navy town back in the 40’s. In fact my marketing guy CJ’s dad was stationed there at the Astoria NAS. Then you have the decommissioned area called Tongue Point to the North. I did quite a bit of research and there is no mention of this site so I can’t give you the history. This place is a great find. You can see photographs and more information about this home here.
