Property description

The 'Compass Rose' is a truly unique ocean front home located on the northern end of the ranch, just minutes to the town of Gualala. One visitor referred to this home as 'The Crown Jewel of Sea Ranch'.

The reverse floor plan allows visitors some of the most dramatic ocean front views of the Pacific available anywhere on the Ranch. You will feel like you are on the bow of a two story cruise ship, yet within the comfort of a spacious and pleasing Obie Bowman designed home complete with barn doors, wood floors, and fully equipped gourmet kitchen, comfortable living room with gas fireplace, flat screen Direct TV with Blu Ray DVD player, and Playstation Two for when the sun goes down. A private library with its own picture window on the ocean, sun room, fully dedicated office, free WIFI throughout the home, and a hot tub overlooking the ocean, no place better to watch the sunset.

The master suite is in its own private wing of the home, features views of the Pacific, a small fish pond, and its own private jacuzzi tub.The other two bedrooms are off the sun room and both feature queen beds.

The changing moods of the sea, which can be viewed from every room, will surprise you. The lulling of the surf's sound is the best relaxation one can get.

The parade of wild life you will witness include whales, dolphins, seals, fox, deer, pelicans, raccoons, rabbits and wild turkeys, oh my!

The Sea Ranch also offers 3 separate swimming pools, a 10 mile long bluff top trail along the ocean, several beaches, tennis courts and many miles of trails,on the ocean front, in the redwoods and along the river.

Gualala has two grocery stores, a video rental store, several restaurants, and many art galleries.Our hope is that you enjoy this unique home as much as we have. Be sure to visit the bench in front of the home, many a problem has melted away at this site. You will leave renewed and refreshed. Our home is your home, we look forward to your visit. Have a most wonderful time.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2003

About: We are from the California Central Valley and farm apples and cherries, 4th generation family farming business. We stumbled upon this area on a trip in the 1980's. We were overcome with the beauty of the area, especially the ocean and its constantly changing moods.

Why Sea Ranch:
Needed a place to recharge....spend time with our family and friends, lots of cooking, walking, and laughing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The ocean views cannot be beat. A true experience that will bring a smile to even the weariest traveler. The sound of the surf is also most relaxing. You can walk out the door and on to a path that leads you down the coast to some of the most fantastic scenery around. Time for you and your family to reconnect....board games, cards, puzzles, all become popular again. We have many in the house, Monopoly, Yahtzee, Sorry (can get mean) Poker,
