Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We have lived in the Crescent City area for 30 years, and own All Creatures Animal Hospital & Bird Clinic. We have raised 6 wonderful children here and believe this to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. We lead a very busy life filled with faith, family, work, and community involvement, and understand the need for peace and total relaxation to renew the soul.
Why the Owner Chose Crescent City: The Lakefront Ranch is a property we have admired in our daily drive from Fort Dick to Crescent City for 30 years. Our daughter-in-law and her mom use to pull into the ranch driveway just to sit and watch the sunsets for many years. The property is a working ranch with a huge barn, improved pastures, and corrals. We raise sheep and a few head of angus cattle. The chickens in the barn provide daily fresh eggs. The pond is reported to harbor prize cutthroat trout and lots of waterfowl and wildlife. When we purchased the property the house was gutted and at the beginning of a complete remodel. We saw tremendous possibilities, and jumped at the chance. The result is astounding, and will be beyond your expectations; comfortable, elegant and totally relaxing.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: As you turn off Lower Lake Road onto the alder lined 1/4 mile drive, you will breath a sigh of relaxation. If it's dusk, you will race to get the best sunset view. At other times you drive slowly, and talk to the sheep and cows grazing nearby. Entering the home you are greeted with modern, comfortable elegance. The living room has 2 unique focal points. At one end is a see-through fireplace with gorgeous 'country rubble' stone work. The other end is a 9' X 4' redwood log chain saw carving of 'the Last Supper'. The master suite is spacious, with a 52' HD TV, wood and gas fireplace, and huge master bath with jetted tub and 2 headed marble shower with stone floor. The detached studio has it's own bath and kitchenette.
