From the private gate, the driveway meanders through a magical coastal forest watched over by a pair of lions. Rounding the bend overlooking the cove at Dark Gulch, you arrive at the flagstone entry to the residence. Stepping through the door and entering the home's living area, your gaze drifts to the large, Fleetwood picture windows that frame dramatic views of the rugged coastline. To your left is the designer kitchen with a Viking Range and custom cabinetry sporting both in and under-cabinet lighting. The primary suite lies to the right, just off of the living area. The dramatic views continue through the primary bedroom to the ensuite bath where fossiliferous limestone countertopsand a freestanding Laufen bathtub provide the ultimate spa-like escape. Descending to the ground floor, there is a great room for family gatherings that includes a murphy bed, further on another cozy bedroom with its own large bathroom. Also at this level is a laundry room.
Seldom does a property combining such privacy with elevated, forested, whitewater views become available on the Mendocino Coast. The graciously appointed home boasts all the high-touch appointments one would expect including hand-scraped oak floors, granite, travertine, built-in custom-made bookshelves and cabinetry by Lee Josephs and in-floor heating. A vested CDP is in place preserving your right to future development, although relaxing in the comfort of this stunning residence may be all one needs.
The original approved CDP (No. 1-83-223) included 7,938 sq.ft. single-family residence with an attached garage, a 2,261 sq.ft. guest studio with attached garage, a 441 sq.ft. gatehouse, a tennis court, and a swimming pool. Development began, but the main house residence was never completed.
