When we purchased our home in April 1996, we were intrigued by its spectacular ocean views. The deeded island with its ocean-carved arches make the property even more unique while affording protection from nature’s forces. The home, constructed in 1964 from huge redwood timbers salvaged from the old Caspar bridge, was interesting but rustic. It has since been renovated and enlarged using a nautical theme to unify the house and gardens. A stately brick courtyard now embraces a sheltered garden and provides a dramatic entry to the home. A whimsical grotto is the portal to another recently expanded garden area where a serpentine stone pathway leads to the guesthouse.
Over the years we have owned the home, we have planted more than 4,000 trees, shrubs, grasses and flowers. A major influence to the design has been the Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens. Clearly gardening has been our passion. Enjoy!
