About the Property
4 BDRM, 3 BATH - BREATHTAKING OCEAN VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM!! - WALK TO BEACH!!
Watch breathtaking sunsets every night as you escape from the busy noise of life. Retreat to the deck or the upstairs and watch grey whales from the spacious, 800 sq. ft. deck as they migrate Northbound in the springtime from March - June and Southbound in the fall from October - November!
Watch and listen to the crashing waves against the sea shore as you unplug and relax.
Open the front door and you are steps away to Portuguese beach, and from feeling the sand beneath your feet and the clean, crisp ocean mist upon your face.
This space is vibrant and full of life from the deer strolling through the property every morning and evening to seeing the hummingbirds dance around the purple cone bushes. Watch the hawk that sits perched atop a tree just outside the kitchen window (above the sink) or the foxes, bunnies and wild turkeys wandering about in the front yard. Look to the sky and don't miss out on bird watching from pelicans to osprey, seagulls and many others.... Happy wildlife watching :)
This quiet, heavenly place is a 4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3,300 sq. ft. custom built craftsman style home at the ocean's edge designed to bring the outdoors in with windows, windows, windows, everywhere including huge wood clad, picture glass sliders giving fantastic ocean views from every room in the house.
It sleeps 8 comfortably and the master bedroom features a Cal King size bed, Jacuzzi tub and a gorgeous rock fireplace with sitting area. It also comes with it's own protected, private deck with incredible ocean views. There are 3 bedrooms downstairs and 1 has a Cal King size bed and the other 2 have a Queen size bed. The 3 bedrooms downstairs also have an awesome ocean view, and their own private, protected, beautiful flagstone patio with sitting area surrounded by vibrant flowers.
Sit, relax and take in the ocean air :)

The beautiful coastal town of Bodega Bay offers both vibrant and "put-your-feet-in the sand" activities alike.
For those seeking escape from the daily noise of life you can simply open the front door and stroll to Portuguese beach :)

Want to explore other beaches? There are many to choose from including Doran Beach, Salmon Creek, Shell Beach, Goat Rock State Beach, Bodega Head / Sonoma Coast State Beach and many, many more.
Shell Beach is a favorite among marine life seekers since it is the best for tide pooling. Many schools use this location as an outdoor classroom to study tidal pool marine life.
Whale watching? You don't have to leave the house. From the deck, you can see the whales migrate Northbound March - June and Southbound October - November. Want a closer look? Grey Whales come closest to the shore at Bodega Head / Sonoma Coast State Beach / 7 miles away.
More marine life? The UC DAVIS Bodega Bay Marine Laboratory is a must. See colorful local fishes, invertebrates, kelp forest, anemones, local, unique marine creatures, and a tidepool mesocosm display. Open most Fridays from 2-4pm for groups of 10 people or less otherwise call for tour schedule.
Hiking? Enjoy the fantastic ocean views on the hiking trail that begins in the shell beach parking lot or walk across Highway 1 and hike up the "Dr. David Joseph Memorial Pomo Canyon Trail", a former Native American trading route. It climbs 700 ft. through redwood forests and grassy hillsides. It also has fantastic views of the coast from several locations. For another challenging hike, try the Bodega Head / Sonoma Coast State Beach hiking trail and there are many, many other hiking trails.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Standing on a wobbly ladder, unstable on the uneven terrain, dreaming of how to design the house for the most fantastic ocean views.........This is how my husband, Rob, and I started our adventure here in Bodega Bay. Rob designed and built this incredible property in 2005 and designed it so every room in the house would have a view including our guests. Rob has a passion for designing and building homes, so we hope you enjoy the attention to detail in this craftsman style home. Rob grew up in Carmichael and I grew up locally in Healdsburg. I moved away for college, met Rob & later introduced him to Sonoma County's finest - THE OCEAN & WINE COUNTRY. After that, we just couldn't stay away from this beautiful place. Rob & Sandy :)
Why the Owner Chose Sereno del Mar, CA, USA:

Does it get much better than that?
