Sweeping ocean views, spectacular mountains and natural woods nearby, private community with pools and even a private hot tub and BBQ right on the back deck.

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).

Home is furnished with two stereos that includes AM/FM radio, cassette & CD player and MP3/Ipod player, microwave, a large jetted tub in master suite, as well as an outside spa/hot tub and a full size Air Hockey and Foosball game for kids or just kids at heart. The guest bedroom has also has a queen bed as well as a bunk and twin bed for children or extra guests.

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.

The Sea Ranch is just as much a family community as it is a private retreat and we invite anyone to be part of this great community no matter how long you stay!

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: I have always been a water person for recreation and loved owning and fixing up real estate professionally.

              Why the Owner Chose Sea Ranch:
              I fell in love with this area and this property in particular the second I saw it. All interior decor was personally picked out to hopefully help enhance the coastal experience for everyone who stays here.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              I have had the luxury of being able to live all over the US and have traveled all over the world and more than anywhere else I have ever been the atmosphere of Sea Ranch and the ability to just relax and unwind here is second to none.
