Escape to the water's edge in this beautiful custom built craftsman home located across the street from the Pacific Ocean in the wonderful village of Manzanita. This is the perfect retreat for your extended family to relax, unwind, and reset. You can immerse yourself in 2,700 square feet of luxury that is on a dead end street where the loudest sound you'll hear is the waves crashing at high tide. Walk across the street and down the rustic path to miles of open sandy beaches for relaxing strolls and impromptu sand castle contests.
With covered porches on the front and back of the house, plus an open patio on the front and a large private covered gazebo in the back, there is tons of outside space to stare at the ocean and inhale the salt air. When you fire up the outdoor grill amid the sounds of the seagulls and waves, you begin to feel the tranquil release of the Manzanita Oceanside Escape.
The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining your extended family. The long sitting window in the living room is a great place to sip your coffee or glass of wine and take in views of the Pacific. The custom Tulikivi fireplace comfortably warms the living room, dining room, and kitchen. There's plenty of room for everyone at the dining room + bar that comfortably seats 12. And the gourmet kitchen with granite counters throughout and high end built in appliances comes fully stocked from the pancake griddle to the popcorn popper and everything in between.
And when you come in from a day at the beach, the laundry room is conveniently located right off the back deck before you enter the kitchen for a convenient transition area.
The downstairs bedroom has a queen size bed with plenty of room to set up the included pack-n-play and easily move around. The downstairs bathroom has cozy heated ceramic tile floors that are a nice treat to your toes as you step out of the claw foot soaking tub.
With vaulted ceilings and wall to wall windows to enjoy your morning coffee while gazing at the ocean, the upstairs master suite might be the crown jewel of the home. A custom ceiling fan sits high above the cozy California king size bed to pull in the sumptuous ocean air. The en suite master bath with separate shower + soaking tub complete the all-encompassing nested retreat.
And upstairs just off the 3rd bedroom and bath, there is a comfortable den area with desk, chair, and reading lamp.
When you want to unwind after dinner, head over to the game room above the detached garage that has a full size pool table, dart board, board games, and refrigerator to cool your beverage of choice. The game room also has a hide-away double bed in the couch.
If you've been to Manzanita you already know; if not, get ready for a treat. The house is ~ a 10 minute walk to the 'downtown'. Laneda Ave has great pizza, Mexican food, and Tex Mex; a cool wine bar and a couple of coffee houses; plus a fantastic sandwich shop and the best ice cream shop you'll find. And if you forget anything for any meal, or just don't want to pack groceries to bring, the Little Apple Grocery store has a splendid selection from organic produce to fresh meats, a great wine selection to hearty breads, and all the staples that you always need. Then on the rainy days when the wind is really blowing window/treasure shopping up and down the street - including a wonderful toy store & a fun book store - is a never ending adventure.
With countless miles of tranquil sandy beaches just steps away from our secluded Manzanita Escape, we truly hope that you enjoy your stay and look forward to hearing from you again soon.
