About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bath W/ Ocean Views, 1/2 Block From Beach
PlayaZul is the place for those who want a great location close to the beach AND a fabulous, well-appointed house to come home to. Originally built in 1960 by a mill worker, the 'bones' of the house are solid, local redwood, which you can still see under the eaves of the lower story roof. A second story was added, and the entire house completely remodeled about 5 years ago, retaining all of the orignal charm while upgrading the ambiance with classic touches like hardwood floors, a travertine fireplace, two garden patios strategically located to maximize both morning and afternoon sun. You will find everything you need and more in a fully-appointed gourmet cook's kitchen with a double oven, stainless steel Bosch appliances, granite counter tops, solid maple cabinets, xtra-deep sink, filtered water system and more. Both bathrooms are fully remodeled with custom tile, recycled glass block, and Restoration Hardware details. The spacious upstairs family room has distant ocean views, flat screen TV, game table, lots of seating and a wood-burning pellet stove with a glass door so you can enjoy the fire in winter. The Master bedroom upstairs enjoys total privacy from the rest of the house. The two downstairs bedrooms open onto the back garden patio. PlayaZul is 1/2 a block from Pebble Beach Drive, the premier beach access area for all of Crescent City which offers several public beach access stairways, blufftop picnic spots and miles of scenic views perfect for bike rides & strolling. The closest beach access stairway is about a block away--- an easy 3-4 minute walk. PlayaZul is the best of both worlds--luxurious living with a casual, warm and welcoming feel.

- Crescent City is the gateway to the Redwood Coast. Jedediah Smith State Park and Redwood National Park offer spectacular hikes to see some of the largest trees in the world--the majestic coastal redwoods. The Smith River is the longest Wild and Scenic River in the U.S., and provides some of the best salmon and steelhead fishing in the country. It is also popular with kayakers and drift boat tours. Both Crescent City and Brookings have active working harbors, and several recreational fishing boats do daylong fishing trips for salmon, albacore, rock fish and crab in season. The Battery Point Lighthouse is a scenic historic point visible from the corner of Freeman Street and Pebble Beach Drive, and is open for tours. Crescent City has a wonderful Farmers Market on Saturdays and Wednesdays from June - October, and wild black berries ar free for the picking along almost ever back road all summer long. You will also find cafes, a movie theater, video rentals, and a public aquarium in town....moreless

Year Purchased: 2013
About: Dan and Sarah both have careers in environmental conservation, so we like to keep in close touch with the natural world we are fighting to protect. Del Norte County is one of our favorite places in California. We We are drawn to the North Coast because it is a magical, miraculous place, and surprisingly undiscovered compared wtih the rest of the California coast. The breathtaking ocean views, abundant wildlife, old growth redwoods, the ancient salmon and steelhead runs in the Smith River...we love it all! We feel privileged to be able to share our little piece of paradise with others who are similarly inclined to get off the beaten path. We hope you make some secret discoveries of your own as you enjoy the best of what the North Coast has to offer.
Why Crescent City North, Crescent City, CA, USA:
We were looking for a beach house that was close enough to see, hear and smell the ocean without having to scrape the salt off the windows every weekend! We chose PlayaZul because we immediately fell in love with the 'vibe' of this house. It is so warm, welcoming and casual, and yet also classy and pleasing on every level. The previous owners spared no expense on the design and materials. From the lush gardens to the recycled glass and handmade saltillo tile to the eco-certified hardwood floors to the chemical-free paint and LED lighting, this home was designed to be appreciated by people who recognize quality and seek to provide it in an environmentally sustainable way. We both love to cook and entertain, and the open floor plan was made for the hoildays. The spacious kitchen with dual convection oven is a cook's dream. The Master Bedroom with its walk-in cedar lined closet is a private retreat. And the front, back and side gardens invite birdwatching, al fresco dining, bookworming and napping. In a word, we loved it the minute we laid eyes on it! We hope you do too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There is no better place on the North Coast to curl up in front of the fire with a good book and storm watch in the winter. The upstairs family room and deck provide distant ocean views. You can hear the roar of the waves hitting the rocks in the winter, and the distant barking of the sea lions in the spring and fall. Even on foggy days, the side patio frequently catches the afternoon sun, and it is the best place for lunch among the flowers spilling over the fence and thru the garden gate. All interior and exterior paint is zero-VOC (no toxic compounds). We are just 4 houses up from the ocean and 1/2 a block from beach access stairs on Pebble Beach Drive. Walk north for a leisurely stroll on the sand, or turn to the south for tidepooling at low tide. Enjoy miles of scenic views whether you are walking, biking, driving, or just sitting at a picnic table on the bluffs.
