This 112 +/- acre property is located in Mendocino County about 4 miles north of the town of Manchester, CA and 10 miles north of Pt. Arena, CA. The scenic drive through the redwoods and wine country takes about three hours from the San Francisco Bay Area. This property has much to offer; ocean views, gorgeous redwood and pine forests, a great trail system, beautiful well-built home, and peace and privacy.
The property has great access off of Highway 1, and runs east of the ocean. As you drive up the private gravel road, you will be blown away with the beauty of the forestland. At first you will experience stands of Red Alder and Tan Oaks along the creek, about 200 ft elevation, and as the driveway climbs the hill, you will wind through Coastal Redwoods, Douglas Fir, Grand Fir and Bishop Pine. Arriving at the house, 800 ft elevation, you will be greeted with amazing views of the Pt. Arena lighthouse, white water views of the waves crashing on the beach and the vast Pacific Ocean.
The home was built in 1986 and is approximately 3100 sq. ft. (per architectural plans) with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. A very well-built home with living room, dining room, open kitchen, custom built-in bookcase, craftsman wood floors, garage, office, courtyard and deck. The home has been used in the past for vacation rentals.
A great attribute of the property is the numerous trails that wind through the 112 acres. Beautiful stands of coastal redwood and pines towering into the sky. See if you can find a newt or salamander in the creeks. The fishing is excellent in the area. Salmon, steelhead, perch, smelt, cabazon can all be caught. Several commercial sport-fishing boats run out of Fort Bragg daily, which is also Northern California’s best abalone diving area.
The towns of Gualala, 25 miles south, and the historic town of Mendocino, 25 miles north, both offer boutique shopping, art galleries, as well as highly rated restaurants. The Gualala River and Big River at Mendocino also offer recreational opportunities such as swimming and kayaking. One can also enjoy hiking the public lands along the bluffs in Mendocino.
