Presenting total seclusion and a calm and tranquil ambiance, especially in the evening when one can relax in the hot tub, gaze at the stars and listen to the distant ocean waves, frogs and crickets.

Owner info

About the owner: I am originally from York, north of England, but have lived in California for nearly 20 years now. I have spent 12 years here on the beautiful Mendocino coast developing this exquisite property into my dream 'little English' escape and feel very fortunate to be able to share my dream with others. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions at all regarding the property :).

Why the Owner Chose Fort Bragg:
Beach: 3+ minutes by car, approx 20 mins by foot, approx 10 mins jogging. By car: 8 minutes to the historical town of Fort Bragg, 20-25 minutes to the historical town of Mendocino. The beach is seconds away from the end of Airport Road where it meets HWY 1, you can either choose to park at a public car park which gives you access to the Haul road and a trail which meanders north to the beaches, rock pools, fishing/diving spots and headlands or south which takes you over the historic Pudding Creek Trestle Bridge (recently renovated) and over the headlands to the famous Glass beach. Alternatively you can park at Pudding Creek beach (where the creek meets the sea) and have direct access to the beach - the creek is more like a river and a lot more safer than the ocean for little ones to paddle in. Situated on the end of a very private lane (off Airport Road), in an extremely safe and quiet neighborhood in the center of 3+ acres surrounded by trees and meadows - not a neighbor in sight. Loads of space for kids to run around and if you have dog(s) great to throw sticks a long long way. There is a croquet set, badminton net and rackets for outdoor fun. For fun family/romantic outdoor evenings there is a 8' by 8' hot tub (extra cost) situated off the south deck and a fire pit situated on the patio for warmth and to toast marshmallows. There are two ponds for your enjoyment that I am pleased to say are not easily accessed by children. Feeling adventuress?, you can even take a walk in the surrounding woods. Every first Friday of the month Fort Bragg has what they call 'First Friday', whereupon the galleries/book shops open there doors late for locals and guests get to preview new books and art and very generously offer free finger food and sometimes wine. If you are looking for privacy, peace and an escape from everything yet need to pop to the beach/town/store this is, perhaps the place for you :)

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
I purchased this property ultimately for privacy, space, and it is a very safe and friendly neighborhood. It has abundance of nature, wildlife and more importantly an escape from the coastal fog (that's not a promise though as she sometimes visits). Not a neighbor in sight. It's especially pleasurable to sit by the pond or on the main south facing deck drinking morning coffee or afternoon wine spritzers:). I love the layout because it has an open kitchen to the huge south facing 31' x 18' great room - perfect for entertaining. Overall the house has so much character, warmth and space and the surrounding grounds that offer plenty of meadow area for outdoor activities along with a perimeter woodland that adds total privacy.
