Mendocino cottage description

This designer loft is on the top floor of an antique redwood carriage barn at historic Spring Ranch with views of the ocean and the coastal grass lands. This space was recently renovated and featured in several publications for excellence in design. It is located one mile south of the village of Mendocino.

THIS IS THE PERFECT PLACE TO RELAX!

The space includes a large living room with a field stone gas fireplace, leather sofa and chair, and views to the ocean; kitchen with microwave, coffee pot, sink and granite counter tops; a large bath with double sinks, slate floors, and a 6' antique shower/tub; a large bedroom with a Cal king redwood poster bed and a desk with a computer. The loft is decorated with antiques from all over the world: lighting, furniture, carpets, etc.

The building is ideally located next to the Spring Ranch preserve which is 350 acres of open space on the ocean. You can walk down a trail to secluded bluffs and watch the whales, seals, and the crashing waves.

                  Year Purchased: 2000

                  About the owner: We are a family of two professionals and a daughter that live in Sausalito, CA. I grew up on the East Coast where it is typical to have an old large family vacation home on the ocean. We wanted to find a home like this near San Francisco where we could invite all of our friends and family for weekends and holidays. This is the perfect place to enjoy each other's company in a traditional setting.

                  Why the Owner Chose Mendocino:
                  When we go to Mendocino for a weekend or one night we feel like we truly got away. The drive to Mendocino through Anderson Valley is one of the most beautiful drives in all of the USA. The location of the house is ideally situated with open space in every direction and views of the ocean. If you want a cup of great coffee or newspaper it is only one mile to the village of Mendocino.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  This building was an original carriage barn built in 1869. The location is ideal, just 1 mile from the village of Mendocino, yet in the middle of Spring Ranch Preserve. Walk down to the ocean through the Spring Ranch open space preserve and enjoy one of the most pristine coast lines of Northern California.
