About 40516 Tide Pool

Welcome Home

Wake up to white water views and the sound of crashing waves in this Japanese inspired home right on the bluff. The seabirds are riding the thermals, flying over the crabbers as they pull in their catch. Watch the spindrift roll off the waves and shoot ocean spray straight up in the air as it hits the sea stacks on Del Mar Pt. Look for whales from the kitchen window while your coffee brews. Take it to living room and pick out a book from your library shelves, or just let the view mesmerize you. White water, framed by the lush meadow and blue skies, is right there, seemingly close enough to touch. Enjoy the peace and quiet - your guests are snug in the guest house. The unique compound structure ensures privacy and is perfect for romantic weekends. They'll emerge eventually, ready for a day of fun, but for now the house is yours.

Get that conference call out of the way in your loft office tucked away above the garage and then close the door behind you. Out of sight, out of mind. This 3 bedroom /3 bathroom house is built for both livability and elegance.  On quiet evenings, catch up on your reading or sit in front of the fire and watch the winter storm. Keep your skis - you'll get back to Tahoe. They'll be in the oversized garage, next to the bikes.

Hike the bluff or follow a trail through the redwoods. Hit a few tennis balls or go for a swim at the Del Mar Center. It's just across the meadow. Relax in the private, lush courtyard or put your feet up on the windowseat, overlooking the ocean. Come evening, open a bottle of wine and watch the sunset. The colors fill the sky over the marine sanctuary. You'll see them deepen and and change over dinner while they flood the dining area with light. Linger long enough and you'll see the moon set over the waves. Magic.

What should we do tomorrow? Play a round of golf or pickleball, ride the bike trail, or go borrow a jigsaw from the library. Catch The Sea Ranch Thespians latest production at the White Barn or learn to play pétanque. Push the kids on the swings at One Eyed Jacks or take them for a swim at nearby Del Mar pool. They'll  love our "lawnmowers," The Sea Ranch sheep. Best of all, put on your walking shoes, call the dog, and hike the Bluff Trail - it's right outside your door. Watch the sunset over the water while the seals feed their pups on the beach. Or head east and walk along a stream under the redwoods or through an azalea grove. No matter how long you live here, it never fails to amaze and delight. Welcome to life in the most beautiful place on earth.

Location Details

Iconic Sea Ranch is the jewel of the California coast, set along Sonoma County’s seaside cliffs 2.5 hours north of San Francisco. Visionary architects and landscape designers, working with an idealistic developer, created a community designed to “live lightly on the land,” a pretty radical concept at the time. The lasting beauty of The Sea Ranch attests to their foresight. Our rugged and majestic coastline is an idyllic setting for homes that blend in with our unique environment – an environment that Sea Ranchers love, respect, and protect.

Our homes are surrounded by nature instead of fences. It’s a place where Sea Ranchers can sit on our decks and watch deer graze on native grasses and herons soar overhead. We can hear seals on beaches below, lounging on the rocks and nursing their new pups. The 55 miles of trails in the shared Commons mean every day is a chance to discover something new. This lasting beauty attests to its designers’ foresight and its residents’ devotion to nurturing our natural world.

A shared love of the coast and a strong sense of stewardship make this a close-knit community of part- and full-time residents who look out for each other and have a lot of fun doing it. Sure, you can come here to get away from it all. Wander along the Bluff, or through tranquil redwoods or meadows when the wild azaleas are in bloom. We’ll leave you be if that’s what you want, but if you’re interested, there is so much to do.  We have 6 tennis courts, (and pickleball courts in the making), 3 swimming pools, a golf course, stables, an airstrip airstrip, a historic barn that we’ve converted to a theater, a library, a native plant garden, a decidedly not native plant garden, a dog park, and trails, trails, trails. Need a minute to collect your thoughts? Sit for a moment in The Sea Ranch Chapel. When you’re ready for some company, take a yoga glass, stitch with the quilters or the knitters, join Bicycle Team TSR or the TSR Flying Society, volunteer at the Arts Center, become a Seal Docent, monitor nesting birds, or meet 2 and 4 legged friends at the beach. You’ll come for the views, but you’ll stay for the people.

Sound like heaven? That’s because it is.
