Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Stephen and Susan Ward recently became semi-retired after 40 years as educators. They founded a private non-profit Montessori school and childcare center in the Sierra Nevada mountains. They are still active in guiding the continued success of the program. We look forward to our visits to our beach house and the surrounding area. Fairly recently we got back into the house after having rented it long term for several years while we rebuilt our primary residence (and lives) after a devastating forest fire. We have made numerous trips to bring the house up to par and are continuing to make improvements. We started renting it on VRBO in July.

Why the Owner Chose Irish Beach:
After decades of visits to a family beach house on the central coast we jumped the chance to have our own place on the north coast, closer to home. The rugged north coast has long been a draw for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
' A different world' The area is tranquil and unspoiled. The views are awe inspiring. Morning coffee in the kitchen/dining area gazing out to sea and the lighthouse is a treat. The beach is a 15 minute walk and good exercise climbing back up. Often you can have the miles of beach to yourselves. Flowers seem to bloom all year. A variety of birds also call our house home. Deer often wander by. The garden is private, sheltered and serene. The house is spacious and light. We feel we have made it comfortable and welcoming.
