About the property

Newly Constructed, Cozy Cottage On A 100 Year Old Apple Orchard Ranch

A charming and eclectic combination of up cycled materials we've dubbed 'country cottage meets barnyard industrial'. We've taken building supplies such as rusted iron roofing and used as siding. A redwood water tank has been utilized for window and door trim. Old plumbing supplies are now door handles or coat hangers, window shutters transformed into kitchen cabinets. While rustic, it's extremely clean, well stocked and comfortable. The location is the perfect blend of easy access and privacy. The cottage is located separately from the main house, situated approximately 500 feet away and screened by trees. There are four steps leading up to the front porch, with the residence being on one level. The elevation makes for a pleasant view across the front lawn area and out towards the distant forest. It's been situated so as to be protected from the prevailing north winds, yet soak up the southern sunshine.

Mendocino is a historically significant area and is a registered national monument. The town itself is architecturally designed in the Victorian style. It is preserved and restricted to further development.

Mendocino Art Center was established in the 60's by artists leaving the high cost of living in the San Francisco area. It remains a vibrant attraction for artists coming to the coast to experience further growth in their fields of interest. Amateur, as well as professional artists, find inspiration with the environment of personal support.

There are numerous art galleries scattered throughout the town, as well as interesting and unique articles for sale in the quaint shops.

The town boasts many gourmet restaurants, often farm to table style and particularly organically grown, locally produced items.

Outdoor enthusiasts will relish the trails along the ocean bluffs, hiking the miles of forest haul roads, walking the many beaches or riding bikes on roadways or trails.

Sport fishing remains a strong component, primarily salmon, rock cod, crab and ling. Shell fish such as mussels and abalone attract the water hardy.

The near by town of Fort Bragg has a gorgeous botanical garden, located on the headlands. A full day can be filled strolling the gardens, walking the bluffs, whale watching, or even taking gardening classes.

There is a newly constructed aquatics park, boasting two huge indoor pools. Swimming lanes are separated from the lazy river moat which is heated to 85 degrees. There are numerous classes given in swimming, aerobics, spin, zumba, weight lifting, etc. An all day pass can be purchased or 'Silver Shoe' admission is free.
