Spend your days whale-watching, hiking oceanfront bluffs, and admiring the wild splendor of the Northern California Coast at this iconic Sea Ranch home! Perched on a hillside with commanding views of the ocean, this light-filled retreat features a private hot tub, beautiful mid-century furnishings, and shared access to the community's pools, saunas, tennis courts, and breathtaking trails.
Named for the Buddhist term meaning "impermanence," this home sits in the midst of awe-inspiring natural beauty. You can begin each morning by hiking across meadows, forest groves, and ocean bluffs from the neighboring trailhead, returning home to a modern kitchen, a gas grill on the back deck, and picture windows that frame majestic ocean views. You'll have all afternoon and evening to curl up by the fireplace, watch movies in the mini-theater room, and soak away your cares in the outdoor hot tub or the jetted bathtub.
This hillside home is on the east side of California Highway 1 in the heart of Sea Ranch, one mile south of the heated outdoor pool, saunas, and tennis courts at the Ohlson Recreation Center. You'll be seven miles south of charming downtown Gualala, where you can pick up groceries at the Surf Market, grab breakfast at Trinks Cafe, or sit down for dinner at Vue Kitchen or St. Orres.
You'll also have your choice of unspoiled local beaches to explore, including Stengel Beach and Pebble Beach just up and down the coast. The Sea Ranch Golf Links are only six miles north, as is Gualala Point Regional Park (an excellent spot for seasonal whale-watching).
