Property description

Rental Requests now being taken.

Now, you have the unique opportunity to stay in one of Westports infamous 'tall houses.' The 'Westport Landship' exhibits one-of-a-kind breathtaking views from every room of the beautiful Mendocino coastline. Sip wine by the old-fashioned wood fireplace in the expansive great room and watch the waves crash on the rocks below through the coastline window wall. Tickle the keys of the vintage piano that came around the cape in the early 1900's. Cooks will love the landship's galley with its mahogany cabinets, stainless steel countertops, top-of-the-line appliances, and a full eating bar. Beachcomers, Abalone divers and Fisherman alike will love the outside shower and easy access for cleanup after the beach through the exterior accessed lower level bathroom.

Now wind yourself up the spectacular circular staircase to the sleeping deck of the glorious landship. Kids love to bunk up together in the spacious dormer room and game area. As for the two front 'private cabins'!! (see attached pictures as the view is absolutely breathtaking) The Captain's Cabin includes its own wood burning fireplace, while the Cape Mendocino Cabin rounds out a 180 degree view of the Lost Coast and beyond. Both front cabins feature awning style windows to open up and let the songs of the sea play through the restful sleep-filled nights. The spacious bathroom with its tiled-in shower featuring another breathtaking view of the breakers is capped off with its old-fashioned 'claw foot' tub that of course features its own unobstructed view of the waters below. Now, peek through thy porthole and venture on up to your own third story 'Lighthouse' and 'Widow's Walk.'

Watch the whales from the lookout deck and take in the full 360 degree panoramic view. Slipping back into the third story 'hidden' attic room completes this 'Victorian Landship' on the ocean from the inside.

The outside features the 'nautical' accents and the grand 'Victorian' of the olden days when Westport was in its glory days of the 1800's. Play croquet, read a book, or just watch the waves from the grass-covered ocean bluff yard and redwood deck. Cook your day's catch on the bricked B-B-Q grill off the rear deck. A nice walk down your own private pathway to the bluff edge brings in the sea and all its glory.

Our owner's group now can approve your pet on a 'case-by-case' basis, upon application approval the 'Landship' now welcomes your dog alike in the yard area, the garage, and on the first floor level, as well as the surrounding grounds.

Once you've experienced your own private cruise on the 'Westport Landship', your family will never want to sail elsewhere. This vacation will indeed be included in your 'Best of Times.'

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Westport 'Landship', an unforgettable experience ! Thomas Bangs and family decided to create a 'step back in time' for this unique home on the Mendocino coast. Thomas designs and builds homes throughout the northern California area from Lake Tahoe to the Mendocino coast. Concentrating on the Napa Valley region, the trip up to Westport became a passion for the whole family. We immediately fell in love with the uniqueness of the small town of Westport. We felt we stepped back to a time where things were simpler and easier in life. The family decided to design and have built, TPB Signature Homes came up from the Napa region for the constuction in 2005, a nautical old tyme feeling home of the 1800's from the design, through construction and on into the antique furnishings. We welcome all to our home, and hope when you do come aboard the 'Landship', you do feel like a refreshing step back into time and enjoy a break from our sometimes too fast lane lives. Welcome Aboard Mates !!

Why the Owner Chose Westport:
Ocean Front Property, a wonderful step back in time !
