Ferndale is a lovely small Victorian town with the entire town listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Access to Redwood National and State Parks is just a short drive. The drive along the Lost Coast over Petrolia through Rockefeller Forest is described as the most scenic drive in the world. The best description of Ferndale's quiet, picturesque atmosphere is 'Brigadoon'.
Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: We, Carlos and Marilyn Benemann, by mistake took the right turn off Highway 101 across Fernbridge 36 years ago, and have been in love with Ferndale ever since. We own a two-story Craftsman house, built in 1912, right across the yard from your Francis Street Home. We owned antiquarian bookstores in Ferndale and Eureka for 25 years, until Marilyn retired. Carlos continues his career as a California court certified Spanish and German interpreter. We love talking with our guests about books, foreign travel, horses and the good life in Humboldt County. Francis Street Home was built as a retirement dream home for Carlos’ parents. We now want to share it with you.
Why the Owner Chose Ferndale, CA, USA:
WELCOME ! To a quiet, comfortable, redwood Craftsman style home, on a landscaped half acre. Bordered by Francis Creek, just a block from the city park and downtown stores and restaurants.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
As you cross Fernbridge from Hwy 101 and drive through the bucolic scenery, feel the stress from your daily hustle slip away. Drive past the beautifully preserved Victorian buildings on both side of Main Street, Ferndale, which becomes Francis Street after Ocean Street.1 and 1/2 blocks to a long driveway on the left. Turn up the driveway at 176 Francis Street. You have arrived. Francis Street Home is your home away from home and downtown and the restaurants on Main Street are only a block away.
