About Mill Pond Village

Spectacular River and Pond Views… In the Heart of Historic Astoria.

For people who dream of owning a home on Oregon’s North Coast, Mill Pond Village offers one of the last chances to buy a prime piece of waterfront property at an affordable price. Nestled on the banks of the Columbia River, Mill Pond Village is close to downtown and convenient to outdoor sports and recreation. It is the perfect homes for seniors and empty nesters, or a weekend getaway for people wanting a second home on the coast. Telecommuters also can enjoy the luxury of a home office with a dual view. Homes overlook the Mill Pond that gives the village its name, while out your window, the silver band of the Columbia River forges its way toward the Pacific Ocean.

Reminiscent of fishing villages that dotted Oregon’s coast a century ago, these new homes surround and overhang the Mill Pond and directly face the Columbia River. Located on a 16 acre parcel of land that once belonged to a lumber mill, the new development is designed to capture the romance of a bygone era while creating a small town feeling among residents. Gravel walkways and benches offer both residents and visitors access to water views of the Mill Pond and Columbia River.

These front 23rd Street and Mill Pond Lane. All have porches and are placed close to the sidewalk to create an intimate and safe streetscape. Homes are 2 or 2.5 stories to ensure views of the Mill Pond and Columbia River.

Pond Cottages

Built on piles, these homes are designed to surround and overhang the East and West edges of the pond. These homes cannot exceed 1.5 stories in order to protect the views for other homes. Large decks can provide views of the Mill Pond and river.

Village Green Homes

These lots face a common green that opens directly to the Columbia River. Houses facing 29th Street have an option of additional live/work spaces.
