Stinson Beach chateau / country house description

Our estate is located on one of Stinson's oldest and most well known properties. It is surrounded by an absolutely amazing garden, which has been featured on HGTV and in Garden Design magazine. It is located only a stones throw from downtown, as well as the beach - and yet, it is one of the most private, quiet properties in Stinson. This is also one of very few properties in Stinson that offers a pool.

The house was built in 1917 and the history of it can be felt throughout the whole property. Walk through the garden and imagine walking in the footsteps of Salvador Dali and Oppenheimer as well as many other artists and intellectuals of the day. This property has seen it all, circus shows, poetry recitals, theatre and musical performances.

The main house has three and a half bedrooms and three full bathrooms, a dining room, a spectacular living room with a magnificent fireplace and a deck with ocean views and the largest wisteria you have probably seen.

The Master bedroom has a king bed, a fireplace, a full bathroom and a door to the pool while the two other bedrooms have full beds with full bathrooms. The extra bedroom is attached to one of those bedrooms but does not have its own bathroom.

This property really is unlike others in its
old-fashioned charm, and it has all the amenities needed although time has set its mark. Staying here transports you back in time, and will be an experience that is hard to duplicated anywhere else.

This property truly has to be experienced, it is a one of a kind.

Many a weddings and beautiful memories have been created here over the decades. If you are interested in getting married in this beautiful garden, please contact us. Also, feel free to take a look at which is a cottage also available for rent as part of this property, which has a pond, lawns, a fire pit, an outdoor BBQ and a veggie garden among other things. We look forward to hearing from you!
