Guests of all ages, interests, and abilities will be in awe of this Sea Ranch retreat, a gorgeous, dog-friendly home with glorious ocean views, a private deck, a handicap-accessible interior, and shared use of the community's wonderful swimming pools, tennis courts, and saunas.
Perched on an open meadow hillside that overlooks the Pacific Ocean, this three-level home offers one of the most majestic views in Sea Ranch. You'll be only one mile south (across California Highway 1) of Stengel Beach and the heated pool, tennis courts, and saunas at the Ohlson Recreation Center; one mile north of Pebble Beach; and seven miles south of Gualala's shops and restaurants.
A perfect escape for multi-generational families, this home is even outfitted to accommodate guests with disabilities or limited mobility. There is an elevator that connects the garage and the second floor, where you'll find a handicap-accessible kitchen, master bedroom, and full bathroom with sink and shower handrails.
Step inside to admire an open and light-filled living space with soft carpeting, contemporary furnishings, and floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the ocean view. Curl up on the sofa with a good book or a board game, settle in by the window to watch for whale spouts on the horizon, and warm your toes by the cozy gas fireplace with a beautiful stone facade.
Pick up a few groceries at the Surf Market in Gualala and begin each morning by preparing breakfast in the full kitchen. Grind your own coffee beans, blend a few homemade smoothies, and flip pancakes on the gas range as your sous chefs slice fruit at the bar counter. The adjacent open dining room offers seating for six.
Stack the plates in the dishwasher and head outside to read the newspaper on the ocean-facing deck. Let your dogs stretch their legs in one of the two garden areas, and log onto the WiFi to check the tides before heading to the beach (please be advised that a two-dog limit and a small nightly pet fee apply).
Hop in the car for a quick drive to Stengel Beach, where you can wander the adjoining Bluff Trail and watch harbor seals play in the waves. Practice your serve or take an afternoon dip at the Ohlson Recreation Center, and return home to light the gas grill for an al fresco meal and an unforgettable sunset on the deck.
Back inside, the whole family can gather around the fireplace for a night of entertainment on the wall-mounted Smart TV. Scroll through the Netflix offerings, play a few rounds of charades, or move upstairs to the third-floor sitting area to watch a DVD from the film library before heading off to sleep.
With three bedrooms, a loft, and three full bathrooms, this Sea Ranch home will sleep as many as six guests. The master suite on the main floor features a queen-size bed and a private bathroom with a stand-up shower. On the lower level, you'll find one bedroom with a queen-size bed and an en suite bathroom with a soaking tub. Upon the third floor, there is a third bedroom with a pair of twin beds and an open sitting area with a sleeper sofa.
Whether you're in search of romance, relaxation, or quality time with your family, you'll find it all on the stunning shores of Sea Ranch. Go for long hikes along the ocean bluffs, search out the seasonal waterfall at Stengel Beach, and tee off with a view of the ocean at the Sea Ranch Golf Links five miles north.
Head 56 miles north to count the sea stacks on the drive to Mendocino, or stop halfway to watch a spectacular sunset at the Point Arena Lighthouse. You'll find fascinating tide pools at Shell Beach less than three miles north, and an incredible spot for whale-watching at Gualala Point Regional Park four miles further.
