Jenner chalet description

This is a newly remodeled two bedroom two bath chalet style a-frame with many upgrades. It is set in the coastal mountains on 15 acres of redwoods in the gated community of Muniz Ranches. Muniz Ranches is a small community of beautiful homes set on large acreage lots just two miles north of the little town of Jenner. The house is just 2 miles from the ocean and features high vaulted pine ceilings and large view windows.

The master bedroom is on the second floor with a loft. The bedroom is huge with a king size high density foam bed and en suite bathroom that has a marble tiled shower. The large a frame windows have a view out the back of the house to the forest. The loft has a day bed and a wonderful view of the ocean. It is perfect for reading and resting and could accommodate a child if needed.

The first floor has living room, dining room, kitchen bathroom and a media room with a slider out to the rear deck. The living room and dining room have a wall of windows over looking the ocean with 25ft high ceilings. The second bedroom is also on the first floor and has a forest view and a queen size bed of the same quality as the Master bedroom. The downstairs bathroom is adjacent to the bedroom.

The house is set for 2 to 4 adults but can accommodate children or additional guests in the media room which has a queen size futon sofa/sleeper. The house is newy remodeled with marble, granite and hardwood throughout.

The media room has a surround sound system with a blue ray/dvd/cd player and an ipod dock. There is directv cable in HD with a dvr. The kitchen is fully equipped with all the amenities and beautiful granite counter tops, and an ocean view. There is a wood burning stove that heats the house well.

The outdoor area brings a sense of natural wonder and calm between the redwood trees and the ocean view depending on where you want to sit. There are lots of local wildlife including cattle, foxes, wild turkeys, rabbits, deer, birds and more. From the deck on most days you can hear the low hum of the surf below. I just can't say enough about the stars on clear nights. amazing. One can see those stars from the new decking and a new sunken 6 person Jacuzzi that has low chemicals due to the ozonator filter. The rear deck is 20 by 28 feet and has a charcoal bbq and a beautiful redwood picnic table with benches made by a local artisan from Guerneville. The table seats up to ten. There is also a large cantilevered umbrella that has lights that light up at night!

The area sports hiking trails and some of the most scenic highways in the world with ocean views and redwood trees. The area is a recreational mecca which one can enjoy a variety of activities.
It is also very meditative, serene, and peaceful. There is no cell service but there is a land line phone that can be used if needed. The house also has internet service as well.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2013

              About the owner: Kristen and I both grew up and continue to live and work in the cities of Southern California. We both work in the behavioral health field. We have two wonderful grown daughters who are both in college. For us this is more than just a vacation home, it is our future retirement home. For this reason we really wanted to make it a place we would want to live which meant high end remodeling including granite marble and hardwood floors. This home is truly a dream come true and we feel very blessed to have such a pristine and wonderful property that we look forward to sharing with others who feel as we do. We met and fell in love late in life. People who know us well would say we have a dream relationship that inspires others. After 5 years of marriage people still think of us as newlyweds. We hope to continue that theme with our dream home that hopefully inspires others.

              Why the Owner Chose Jenner:
              Kristen and I have been looking for our ideal retirement community since we met, exploring different areas was fun. We have scoured the Pacific Northwest from Bellingham Wa, to Cambria, Ca. We always wanted to live in a smaller community, closer to nature. Kristen wanted to live on the ocean and I wanted to live in the trees. We love wine tasting and discovered the area of Sonoma county and fell in love with it for it's beautiful coastline, magnificent redwood trees, and open spaces. Searching the internet out of curiosity and day dreaming, we happened upon this house. On our next wine tasting trip we went to see it and although it needed a lot of work we were immediately taken in with the area. The fact that we could hear and see the ocean while sitting in the redwoods meant that we would both get what we wanted. We immediately sensed the tranquility and calmness of peace and quiet. The house needed a lot of work, the roof was leaking, the decks were falling down, the siding was rotting out. We could see that it had good bones, with a view of the ocean from the dining room, kitchen, and loft, the beautiful ceilings and deck areas, the Redwoods and fern grottos. Bringing it back to life has been challenging but well worth the effort.

              The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
              I don't want any surprises for our guests. Honestly this house is a bit remote between the dirt road that goes up to the house and hwy 1's twisty turns. However, if you like rural scenic driving and keeping busy there is certainly a ton of things to do from sight seeing along the ocean state parks, to wine tasting that extends from Fort Ross Winery that is only 5 or 6 miles away all the way to Napa or San Francisco which are two hours drive away. There is zip lining, fishing, kayaking (bioluminescent at night), diving, surfing, amazing cycling, small shops, state parks (Armstrong redwoods), and quaint towns (Jenner, Point Reyes, Sebastopol, Occidental, Guerneville, Bodega Bay, and Monte Rio). The reality is that this house is a destination in and of itself. The trees, the wildlife, the stars, the fog, the weather, and the ocean views and breezes. The difficult thing is to balance between doing and being as this is a place in which one can really get in touch with oneself, spirit and soul.
