Property description

Multi-million dollar property with spectacular ocean views, perfect for a family outing or surprise intimate getaway.

This custom cliff side home overlooks Albion's picturesque Navarro beach, where the Navarro river meets the pacific ocean. Listen to the soothing sounds of the waves from the wrap-around deck, or relax and soak in the panoramic views. Grab a few fluffy towels and stargaze on a cool, clear night in the secluded hot tub with room for six.

One of the most sought-after vacation homes in Mendocino county, baleen (named for the baleen whales that can be seen from the deck during whale-watching season), the home was exquisitely furnished by a professional decorator and completely renovated from the ground up. A meticulous melding of comfort and serenity.

- two private, gorgeous bedroom suites (plus two queen-sized sofabeds--one in each lounge)
- 3 full bathrooms (complete with heated limestone floors)
- full gourmet kitchen
- washer/dryer
- includes all the expected (and even unexpected!) amenities of a luxury vacation home, including multiple flat-screen tvs, stereo, gorgeous gas stove, granite countertops of rose quartz and labradorite and heated limestone floors in the bathrooms, bamboo flooring throughout the first floor, and a telescope for whale-watching!

Have breakfast at favorite local hotspot Queenie's roadhouse cafe, share a pint with the locals at Bridget dolan's pub, or choose to dine at one of several fine renowned restaurants, all within a mile from your doorstep. Then go for a stroll in downtown Mendocino, soak in the landscape, or take a drive up the coast. Experience Mendocino at a slow, inspired pace.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: A California girl who loves the North Coast, and enjoys sharing the luxury and beauty of her homes with visitors to this wonderful part of the the Golden State. I've worked and traveled across most of Europe and some of Asia, and I've lived in Hawaii. My family is from Canada (we used to joke that I am the only US-born family member and can become president someday.) I keep coming back to California and its unrivaled beauty and liveability. I am an active animal rescuer and I am on the Advisory Committee of MickaCoo Pigeon and Dove Rescue. I spent 14 years fostering and volunteering with Mickaboo Companion Bird Rescue. I have met wonderful, caring people through my work with them, not to mention some great birds! I also volunteer my time to the ALRP, which provides free legal representation to those living with AIDS or HIV here in the Bay Area. I am blessed and I like to pay it forward. My mottos are 'Carpe Diem, Vita Brevis' and 'This, too, shall pass.' They have served me very well. I am a hands-on host. I want to make sure your questions are answered, and you have a good time while visiting Baleen. I encourage you to reach out to me before, during, or after your vacation with questions, comments, or suggestions. I hope you try out my beautiful Mendocino home and are prepared to be spoiled and indulged.

Why the Owner Chose Albion, CA, USA:
Mendocino is a spiritual, lovely, relaxing and rejuvenating area. I knew this was a unique estate when I first saw it. It has been completely renovated with the finest finishes. Please enjoy!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the heated limestone floors in the bathrooms to the rose quartz and Labradorite countertops and custom-made vanities, everything is top-notch and luxurious at Baleen. The front entryway boasts a locally-made black walnut bench from the Elk Art Collective. There are antique Chinese armoires and one-of-a kind artwork throughout. Come visit and be pampered.
