ICONIC COASTAL RETREAT LISTED and EXPERTLY MARKETED by GEOFFREY NELSON

 

Exhilarating True Oceanfront...

On over an Acre of private grounds, experience exquisite seclusion amidst a symphony of sun and sea. Rarely available among all of Northern California, this architectural gated estate embraces the most enlivened entertaining to the most quiet wave-lapping Zen. Step from your patio to the sandy beach at the edge of the famous Fitzgerald Marine Reserve. Watch the seals animating on the calm waters from this exclusive "Seal Cove" location. Renowned for its vistas, the setting becomes even more unrivaled when matched with this enormous lot size that ensures privacy and harmony with nature.

The grounding sense of equilibrium begins as the gate swings open and panoramic gardens unfold beneath a cypress canopy. The expansive  grounds immediately invite you to "leave it all behind," as you revel in the serene compound motor court. The shingled facade evokes the best of Craftsman and English Country architecture, with its understated elegance and rustic chic. Like the greatest seaside residences, this retreat is more a lifestyle ambiance than a mere house. Rich timber and wide plank floors articulate themes of East Coast permanence, while the relaxed indoor/outdoor flow is unmistakable West Coast spontaneity. The grand-scale living room is crowned by a massive cathedral beamed ceiling. Floor-to-ceiling river rock fireplaces, such as in the living room, emphasize the organic aura. The adjacent dining room will seat 20+ from its window-wrapped perch overlooking Seal Cove, foamy whitewater, and majestic cliffs. Throughout the home, premium remodeling adds function without sacrificing character. Complete with Viking range, the chef's kitchen boasts a large ocean-view dining nook, indoor grill, and river rock fireplace. French doors swing out to a picture-perfect deck that overlooks the ocean while accommodating evening cocktails or barbecues.

The floorplan of 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms welcomes flexible use for pied-a-terre, communal guest getaways, or simply your year-round sanctuary. Each bedroom has its own bathroom and storybook fittings such as window banquettes, wide plank floors, and of course sublime outlooks. The master suite occupies its own wing complete with towering cathedral ceiling, river rock fireplace, and soothing bath with outdoor hot tub access. At the front of the property, a separate guest cottage will inspire a yoga respite beneath its soaring ceilings and garden views. The cottage bathroom is luxuriously detailed with glazed custom tile, Cararra marble vanity, heated floors, and huge full sauna.

The exclusivity of the offering is best expressed by walking the grounds. Pathways lead through mature vibrant gardens, sweeps of level land, and the sense that you are amidst the pristineness of a native environment. From the master hot tub or the main living room patio, you will proceed just a few yards down to the sandy beach that emerges beyond your private property line. Seals will occasionally bob in the water, the sound of the waves will lull at the shore, and the fragrance of the air will remind you that your home is a world-class habitat to enrich the mind and body.All this rich bounty, all this timeless allure, is just 20-30 minutes from San Francisco and the heart of the Peninsula.
