This is a unique, breathtaking 105-acre property, on the Northern border of the Lost Coast, with trails and creeks, wildlife, a nearby recreational river (kayaking, swimming, fishing, etc.) and a pristine ocean beach within ½ mile.
This craftsman's house is supported by two locally harvested tree trunks and a 3 foot wide, 40 foot cross beam. At approximately 800 feet above sea level, there is a clear view of Pacific Ocean and the Mattole River as it enters the ocean.
The house itself, with wooden features throughout, has a huge kitchen, two winter bedrooms (one with the ocean/river view) and a third bedroom usable from March through November. The large but cozy living room looks out over a gorgeous ocean/river view and has a wood-burning stove. In the back of the house is a 350 square foot solarium.
Happily, and many environmentalists appreciate this, the electrical system in the house is creek-powered, using pelton wheel technology.
For hikers, the area is legendary. The house sits on the northern border of the euphemistically named, Californian Lost Coast, part of the King Range National Conservation Area. Hikers can hike at low tide along the coast then move inland into the Conservation Area to hike or camp as the tide rises. Avid hikers can plan a hiking trip with a decompression stay at the property!
