Beautifully situated a stone's throw from the edge of the Pacific Ocean, this two-bedroom home in Shelter Cove is the serene, relaxing escape you've been seeking on the gorgeous Northern California Coast. You'll be able to walk to the beach, the lighthouse, the neighboring golf course, and great spots for tidepooling and whale watching, with a large viewing deck and an upstairs balcony waiting to welcome you home with commanding ocean views.
This home is filled with charm and character, which is immediately apparent in the large and plentiful windows, the richly hued wood beams and paneling, and the wood-burning stove that warms the living room. After a day spent hiking or tidepooling, you can curl up in the window seat with a good book or the provided telescope, or step out onto the viewing deck for cocktail hour with an amazing ocean view at sunset. Prepare dinner in the fully appointed kitchen, sit down to eat at the circular dining table for four, and adjourn to the den on the main floor to choose a DVD to watch on the flatscreen TV (with DirecTV, HBO, Starz, and other premium channels). Leave the day's clothes to spin in the laundry room and enjoy a restful night's sleep in one of the two upstairs bedrooms. Choose between one bedroom with a queen-size bed and an open loft room with a king-size bed, a sitting area, and a cozy window seat. There's a full bathroom on each floor - one with a tub/shower combination upstairs and another with a stall shower downstairs.
This home sits on a grassy, unfenced property just across Lower Pacific Drive from the ocean in Shelter Cove. You'll find nearby access to the water at the Cape Mendocino Lighthouse (less than half a mile down the road), Cove Beach (just over half a mile down the road), and Black Sands Beach (two miles north). The nine-hole Shelter Cove Golf Links are right around the corner as well.
