The open ocean and the spectacular cliffs of the Northern California Coast unfold before you at this incredibly positioned oceanfront cottage in Elk! Here atop a breathtaking bluff, you can watch unforgettable sunsets from a viewing deck that sits above the crashing waves and Elk Rock below. You'll have a 180-degree vantage point of the entire coastline, more than seven acres of oceanfront land, and a darling, beachy cottage to welcome you home.
An ideal escape for whale-watchers, wildlife enthusiasts, and those simply seeking a beautiful retreat, this light-filled home is full of casual elegance - from the bleached wood beams to the plush, wrought iron beds. You can read the morning paper in view of the ocean, prepare breakfast on updated appliances in the kitchen, and grill outside on the deck for lunch overlooking the water.
Whether your interests lie in wild beaches, dramatic vistas, ocean kayaking, or diving and surfing, you'll find it all on this majestic stretch of shoreline. This home sits just over a mile south of the town of Elk and Greenwood State Beach, 11 miles south of the historic Albion River Bridge (the last wooden bridge in operation on Highway 1), and 18 miles south of charming downtown Mendocino.
If you hop in the car for a drive up the coast, you can make scenic stops at Navarro Beach (eight miles north), Navarro River Redwoods State Park (11 miles northeast), Mendocino Headlands State Park (19 miles north), Russian Gulch State Park (21 miles north), and the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens (25 miles north). To the south, the Point Arena Lighthouse (18 miles south) is famous for its wonderful sunsets.
