THE MAIN HOUSE
Coastal Estate Property
home via one of the redwood gates, you walk down the paved sidewalk through one of the many flower gardens. Once inside, you find
yourself in a grand Formal Entry. Proceeding past the maple staircase that leads to the upstairs retreat rooms, the Great Room
opens its 14
foot high ceiling and south-facing windows. Accenting the Great
Room is one of twin stained glass windows by Peter Adams of Vision
Quest Studio, Half Moon Bay, CA as well as custom maple cabinetry,
tile faced fireplace and a slate tile topped credenza that divides the
living and dining areas. Off the Great Room, located for guests'
convenience, is one of the three half-baths.
Entertaining is both elegant and effortless as the Butler's Pantry and the Family Room
adjoin the Great Room. The Butler's Pantry, with a full-size sink,
refrigeration and cabinetry keeps the bartenders out of the kitchen.
The Family Room, with its own slate tile faced fireplace,
connects the kitchen to all those guests who like to visit with the
chef. Beyond the Family Room is an eat-in Solarium for smaller family dinners or intimate dinners with just a few close friends. With a mostly open floor plan, large groups of people can be comfortably entertained as credenzas define several of the room spaces.

area are edged by the Family Room and the Kitchen.

also a 7 person hot tub. If shade is preferred, a shady Screened Porch through a connects to the Patio and Deck through the Sunroom.
For people who prefer to walk, a Gravel Garden Loop leads through the totally irrigated gardens and connects the house with the separate Studio/Workshop Building.

lemon, fig, Santa Rosa Beauty plum and Asian pear trees join French lilac, privet, lavender,
rosemary and ceonothus bushes to serve as garden anchors for waves of
daisies, penstemon, coreopsis, alstromeria, lilies, many other
perennials and over 2 dozen rose bushes. There is also a small
lawn. Deer-fencing encloses the house, the attached, oversize 3-car Garage,
the Studio/Workshop Building and most of the developed land. If even
further exercise and wanderings await, gates in the deer fence connect
to private paths, trails and old logging roads that are found
throughout the 20 acres.

manzanita forest to an open meadow. Throughout the estate, all

sunlight for houseplant cultivation or other light-intensive

use. The separate Studio/Workshop Building houses 2 separate rooms, each approximately 500 square feet.
It also has a third half-bath and a partial storage loft above.
