Duncans Mills house description

Welcome to 'RiverWest', a little piece of 'Paradise' on the Russian River. Discover the true meaning of “on the river” with what may be the best combination of panoramic views and easy access to the Russian River. This truly is an idyllic setting! Perfect for a romantic getaway, or vacation for a the whole family.

Location:

In the redwoods, above the wide, lazy curve of water, with the tree-lined ridges fading to the west, our vacation home offers a tranquil and private setting for relaxation and that 'getaway feeling.' The north and west walls are almost entirely glass, which creates a light and open atmosphere, giving you a sense of freedom and flight as you gaze at the the osprey, gull, and heron. Through every moment of your day, you’re surrounded by this expansive view of the river and mountains that few other places have. And, when looking is not enough, step down the stairs to your private dock to use the three kayaks, or row boat to enjoy the wild, scenic lower river, from Duncans Mills to the ocean.

The home is located about a 3/4 mile from Duncans Mills, a quaint little town with coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping for art and collectables. The ocean, and all the great Sonoma Coast Beaches are about seven miles west. On hot summer days, when the rest of California is 100 degrees or more, the soothing ocean breeze cools our place into the 70-80's.

Home:

The two-story home is nested on the side of a hill overlooking the river. The 2nd. floor is 950 sq. ft. with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, living room and kitchen. One bedroom has a queen bed and a beautiful view of the river and mountain, and has its own 8’X16’ deck with bistro table and chairs. The view is like being on the bow of a ship at sea. The second bedroom has a bunk bed for the kids and also has double doors leading to its sunny morning deck. The bathroom has a Kohler corner shower with curved glass enclosure and a sink from France. The living/dining room is open an airy with large picture windows and doors to the deck. The remodeled kitchen has stainless steel and black granite countertops with new appliances. The 1st floor studio offers 650 sq. ft. with a bedroom, bathroom, and combined living, dining, and kitchen area. There is a comfy queen bed in the spacious bedroom that also has a 8'X16' deck outside the French doors. There is a comfortable double futon in the living room. The beautifully tiled bathroom has a separate tub and shower. The kitchen has new cabinets and appliances, and is equipped with the basic utensils and dishes for preparing your meals.

Together, both floors offer 1600 sq. ft. of living space with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and two kitchens! With the addition of the futon in the lower floor as a double bed, the house will sleep seven or eight. The floors are accessible by two sets of stairs on the outside of the house. There is no stairs inside the building from floor to floor. There are numerous decks and two terraces with patio seating. This makes a perfect setup for vacationing with Mom and Dad, extended families, or friends.
Encircling the home on two levels is 700 sq. ft. of barefoot-friendly Trex decking with bistro table and chairs. Another terrace has a Weber 2 burner gas grill and more patio seating, and a fire pit. All decking, stairs, and patio areas have railing or fencing to safeguard young children. There is no smoking allowed in the home. Sorry, pets are not allowed.

Grounds:

Beyond the decks, we have upper and lower terrace areas surrounded by the natural riparian forest - massive redwoods, maple, river willow and buckeye trees, with ferns, and sorrel beneath. We leave the vegetation in its natural state to support the redwood's ecosystem and the great variety of animal life that abounds in the area. We have no neighbors downstream; we look into the river forest as it continues to the west. Upstream, are two undeveloped lots filled with forest; so, we have great privacy and seclusion. And new for 2013, a newly installed river-rock beach, making it easy to get in and out of the kayaks for young and old.
