Crescent City chateau / country house description

This beautiful 153 acre white fenced lakefront ranch rests on Lake Earl, the largest freshwater lagoon in California. It is comprised of 90 acres wildlife conservation area and 60 acres of pastureland, redwood timberland and streams.

This is one of the most beautiful properties in Del Norte county. Every evening on the deck is a sunset like no other, watching the ducks, geese, egrets, blue herons and deer in the front yard, silhouetted by the setting sun. Sit in the hot tub with your favorite drink, your favorite people, and relax, bond and re-center yourself! There are countless trails on the beach and in the redwoods to horseback ride. Bring your own horses or rent from nearby stables. There are also lots of opportunities for quad riding, and plenty of room to park your trailers in or near the barn of this working ranch. We are also prepared to host your wedding and reception or family reunion. We have 14 three foot diameter round tables and 100 chairs available with 4500 square feet of living space and 2000 square feet of deck.

Entering the home you are greeted with modern, comfortable elegance. The great room has 2 unique focal points. At one end is a two-sided, see-through fireplace with gorgeous 'country rubble' stonework. At the other end is a magnificent piece of art, a 9' X 4' redwood log chainsaw carving of 'The Last Supper'. The master suite is spacious, with a king size Tempurepedic sleigh bed, 52' HD TV, wood and gas stone fireplace, and huge master bath with jetted tub and a large corner marble shower with stone pebble flooring and two shower heads. The sunroom has a beautiful gas fireplace at one end, a wall of windows facing the lake to the west and a 52' HD TV with blue-ray player and HD satellite. All bedrooms have Sealy Posturepedic mattresses and antique sleigh beds. The detached studio has it's own full bath and kitchenette.

Enjoy the beauty and peaceful tranquility of this one-of-a kind lakefront estate. Listen to the sounds of nature, the frogs on the 2 acre pond (canoe available)and the owls at night. Watch the abundant wildlife roam and the sheep and cattle graze. Gather fresh eggs for breakfast from the chicken coop in the barn. Wander through the redwoods and along the creek that runs through the trees. Walk along Kellog Beach 2 miles down the country road and fly a kite or beachcomb for shells, driftwood and other treasures. Leave in a relaxed state of mind.

                  Owner info

                  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.
