Coastal Estate Property


Our home
is located one mile from the Pacific Ocean, between Gualala and Point Arena, CA.  Its location along the coast affords the estate a position in what is locally called the Banana Belt of the area.  
This is an area of about a handful of miles where the cold, ocean fog stays mostly off shore and the land enjoys sunshine.  The elevation gives us sunshine and warmth but not extreme heat as our home is above the fog, wind and glare of the ocean yet below the heat of the ridge environment.

Island Cove BeachLocated above the highly desirable Island Cove Estates, yet separate from the Island Cove Estates Neighborhood Association, for a small annual fee, our property does enjoy the same deeded access, rights and privileges to the gated beach at Island Cove as the Neighborhood Association members.

Our street is a paved, improved Mendocino County road.  This allows easy access for deliveries and service vehicles.  Our private driveway off the County road eliminates shared driveways and neighborhood road maintenance agreements and fees.  The street continues from the ocean (and CA Hwy1), past our driveway, up and along a ridgetop returning to the ocean and Hwy. 1 in Gualala, CA.  This allows convenient access to Hwy. 1 in both directions.

Gualala, CA is only a 15-20 minute drive away.  Gualala offers supermarkets, hardware stores, restaurants, medical facilities, shops, a gym, realtors, galleries, and and Art Center as well as a Post Office.

Point Arena, CA is really a small town with a Post Office, medical facilities, shops and restaurants.  The Coast Community Library branch of the Mendocino County Library System is located in Point Arena.  Because the Library System encompasses Sonoma and Lake Counties as well as Mendocino County, patrons at the Coast Community Library have quick access to many volumes.  A completely restored 1927 vintage theater, located in downtown Point Arena, provides first run movies as well as vintage classics and art movies.  Regular live shows are presented by both local and internationally renowned performers.  Point Arena also offers an historic lighthouse.

Within about a 15-20 minute drive, are a number of public beaches and other recreation areas.  Between Gualala, on the south, and Point Arena, on the north, are several California state beaches and Mendocino County beaches and parks.  Just beyond Gualala are a large number of Sonoma County parks and beaches.  North of Point Arena, as well, are more California state parks and Bureau of Land Management federal open lands.  About an hour north are Mendocino Village and Fort Bragg, CA both of which offer a variety of shopping, entertainment and recreational activities.
