                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Peter and Jed dueling on the beach

                  Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                  We have long been in love with the indescribable Mendocino coast, and bought the house for our retirement. But, that's 10 years off, and we're renting it out for vacations until then.
