Sonoma County represents the best of Northern California — premium wine, farm-to-table dining, ancient redwood forests, more than 50 miles of stunning Pacific Coast, oak-covered mountains, and quiet rivers. Breathtaking Highway 1 delights visitors with crashing waves, sea lions and otters sunning on the beaches, and amazing sunsets that color the sky in brilliant hues.
More than 20,000 gray whales migrate past the Sonoma Coast each year. The whales are en route from the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea to the Gulf of Cortez in Mexico, where they will calf in winter. From January through May, the mothers with their newborn hug the shore as they head north to feed off Alaska.
View wildlife year round at Goat Rock, near the mouth of the Russian River, the beach is a regular resting ground for seagulls, sea otters, elephant seals, harbor seals, and sea lions.
With miles of hiking trails you can take a walk along some of the most beautiful coastal trails on Earth. Spend the day biking by the coast or inland towards the redwood forest. Kayak up or down the Russian River.
See a live seal show in Jenner. Throw your kayak or canoe into the Russian River at Duncans Mills and paddle to the mouth of the river and get close to the seals and sea lions that sun themselves on the beach.
Take a Farm Trail tour or visit one of our many farmers markets. What the Bay Area eats, Sonoma County grows. Sonoma County is a agricultural powerhouse. Sonoma County Wine Region: The world-class Sonoma wine region offers over 370 wineries. Within the county are 15 American Viticulture Areas (AVAs, appellations, or wine-growing regions) with unique soils and climates that allow certain grape varieties to grow particularly well.
Within a 10 minute drive visit Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve an 805-acre park, features a magnificent grove of ancient redwoods, a large outdoor amphitheater, self-guided nature trails and a variety of picnic facilities.
Within a 15 minute drive you can visit Bodega Head in Bodega Bay. Rent a boat and go deep sea fishing, whale watching or diving. Bodega Head is the rocky headland that forms the entrance into Bodega Harbor. The harbor side provides a popular crabbing area along the jetty, and the many hiking trails on the ocean side allow access to small, sandy coves and spectacular scenic bluff-top views. The high cliffs offer excellent vantage points for observing migrating gray whales. Famous for the location of the Alfred Hitchcock's movie 'The Birds'.
Within a 10 minute drive you can play golf at the Northwood Golf Club. It was recently ranked by Golf World Magazine as the #3 Nine-hole course in America! Built in 1928 by famed golf architect Alister MacKenzie set amidst towering Redwood trees.
Dive up the coast 11 miles and visit Fort Ross State Historic Park. The 3,386-acre park preserves a Russian settlement.
Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: The owners are world travelers who appreciate diverse cultures, architecture, art and fine food. Interest are photography, antiques, farm-to-table dining, paddle along the coast, just sitting down and enjoy the sounds of nature. We purchased this beautiful home in 2012 and because of its uniqueness and spectacular views we knew want to share it with others. The home is decorated with local art and photos taken by the owner Francesca. Her work has been on exhibit in galleries and art centers in Sonoma, Los Angeles and Sacramento. Both owners love to garden and are transforming the coastal garden with more intimates spaces for you to enjoy. We love to cook and have an extensive library of cook books that will inspire our guest to try a new recipe. We are big supporters of local farmers, cheese makers, vintners, artisans and non-profits. We love to share our favorite spots with our guests. We look forward to you visiting our home and the lovely town of Jenner, CA. Francesca Scalpi and Lotus Fong Owners
Why the Owner Chose Jenner, CA, USA:
This home evokes an emotion and is something to be experienced. The architect Carson Bowler designed the home to take in the views of the river, ocean, headlands, garden and night sky. The home itself is an art piece. Nature in all of its glory unfolds before you. The coastal garden is on 3/4 acre property. Landscaped to invite birds, butterflies, honey bees to come smell the 4 seasons of blooms. Watch the harbor seals come up the river to play and fish. Thousands of shore birds visit the Jenner estuary through out the year. A pair of Bald Eagles come by for a visit during the fall, winter and spring. From our deck you can see the migrating Grey whales. The home is decorated with new modern contemporary furnishings. Through out the home you will see unique touches such as an Asian carved door that is over 100 years old. For that romantic evening alone there is a separate Master Bedroom Suite which provides privacy from the main house. Spending time in the garden, reading a book or cooking up a feast you will find plenty of reason to stay in this home. This home is in town close to all of the adventures Sonoma County has to offer.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The air along the coast is clean and energizing. Give your lungs the break they deserve. Find a place in our coastal garden to meditate, write a book, take a nap, draw or paint or do nothing. A lot of our friends and family enjoy just being at home in our house. The view of the Russian river and Pacific ocean is mesmerizing. We watch as people just drift off. There is something magical about when two power bodies of water come together. Watching the ebb and flow of the tides is like a natural sedative. Stargaze with our large open views of the dark night skies. Bring your telescope and be marveled. The Blue Lotus is a 'Home' that the owners want to share this magical space with you. This is not an investment vacation property. ?
