The Sea Ranch, located on a 10-mile stretch of California’s Coastal Highway begins about 90 miles of north of San Francisco and represents a perfect attempt to blend architecture and nature. This area is certainly one of the most unique and picturesque areas in Northern California and is dotted with an array of distinctly unique homes that were designed to blend naturally with the landscape.

The Oceanstar was designed by Ralph Matheson and blends perfectly with the Sea Ranch landscape. This luxurious, spacious, comfortable home with great blue water views and has a large open kitchen, large rock wall fireplace, Flat Panel HD TV with satellite service including many movie and music channels, and DVD player with a DVD library with over 50 top titles and even an XBOX 360 (games not included).

The OCEANSTAR home has been specially decorated to blend perfectly with its spectacular California ocean views. The beautiful Cape Cod décor even includes many personal touches that help make our home, a home away from home for each visitor.
