Property description

The Sea Ranch is a world-renowned primary and secondary home community along a ten-mile stretch of California's most breathtaking, beautiful coastline, about 100 miles north of San Francisco. The Sea Ranch comprises approximately 12 square miles of land and has about 1800 homes.
The Sea Ranch is particularly famous for its strict architectural requirements, following the motto 'building light on the land.' Bella Vista shares the ocean view lot line with Sea Ranch commons land, which provides for unobstructed expansive ocean views and privacy. The Sea Ranch territory includes tens of miles of private roads, many hiking trails, three recreation centers that are open to renters, and an 18-hole golf course.
Located in an exceptional private, peaceful, quiet setting on a knoll west of California's famous coastal Highway One, the 'Bella Vista' chalet has breathtaking ocean views up and down the coast.
The home was built in 1989 and has approximately 1800 square feet of rented living area, including a mezzanine with a high-quality (German-made Grotrian Steinweg) upright piano.


High-Quality Features: Bella Vista features terracotta tiles and Oriental rugs in the living areas and wall-to-wall carpets in the bedrooms. Vaulted ceilings in all rooms, large windows, comfortable furniture, a conventional wood fireplace, and decor will contribute to making your stay pleasant and memorable. The kitchen is well equipped with modern (and quiet!) appliances. Enjoy the view deck and private deck off the master bedroom with built-in hot tub (with ocean view), and the overall uniquely private setting. The quietness, views, and magnificent surroundings are stunning ...

Unique Gated Community: The Sea Ranch is a world-renowned gated community second to none in the combination of natural beauty and build environment, controlled by an influential architectural/design committee. There are three large recreation centers with pool, saunas, and tennis courts -- all free of charge to our renters. The 18-hole Sea Ranch Golf Links are located in breathtaking ocean view environment -- fees apply.
The Sea Ranch has tens of miles of bluff trails, meadow trails, and hill-side hiking trails. The internal road system is ideal for the recreational, occasional biker; the nearby public highways offer challenges for road bikers, and the Sea Ranch hill-side trails are challenging for mountain bikers -- just bring your bikes.

Solar Photovoltaic Energy: Bella Vista has a solar photovoltaic energy system that is entirely integrated to the regular electric grid system and will remain unnoticed by the renter. Space heating is by optimal passive heating and a conventional gas central heating system.

Car: Necessary

The address is 41053 Tallgrass. Typically, when people are unfamiliar with the The Sea Ranch and lean heavily on google maps when they make their selection, they are surprised to find out how dramatically the absence of elevation information in google maps distorts perception - Bella Vista is sheltered from any road noises, open solely to the sounds of the ocean, and looks majestically above the meadow in front and some unobtrusive rooftops onto the vastness of the ocean up and down the coast. The home is located about 500 feet west of Coastal Highway 1, close to, but invisible from, the Sea Ranch internal Leeward Road.

Other Activities: Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Kayaking

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1993

About: We came to Sea Ranch every year for family vacations in rental homes and built our first home ('Casa Pacis'' -- see separate VRBO listing) at near-by 'Walk-on Beach' in 1984. In 1993 we found the home which became 'Bella Vista' for sale, on a knoll in a superb view location that we had admired for years on our walks on Sea Ranch trails. We remodeled it, adding a third bath and a piano mezzanine off the great room.

Why Sea Ranch:
The property is located on one of Sea Ranch's most desirable view lots. It combines architecturally pleasing features, such as use of 45-degree angles, open ceilings, cedar T&G interior siding, terra cotta tiles, and many other unique attributes, with maximized ocean and coastal meadow views from all rooms.
