Gualala Retreat

49600 Gypsy Flat Road , Gualala, CA 95445

Nestled within a canopy of old-growth redwood, this spectacular custom home boasts panoramic views of the Pacific from its perch on the Mendocino coastline. A secluded haven that receives calm, wind-free days within the “Banana Belt’s” sunny embrace, the hilltop hideaway spans three legal parcels of land and affords access to a private beach minutes away. Affectionately coined “Sea Piper,” after the characteristic warbling of the sunset seabird, the nightly song is a welcome reminder to pour a glass of wine come happy hour.

A departure from the everyday, the sumptuous sanctuary coalesces expert craftmanship and custom millwork in a symphony of materials. Across the threshold, guests are greeted by a voluminous great room with two-story ceiling and floor-to-ceiling glass that frames views of migrating gray whales. Echoing with decidedly Japanese influences, the Zen retreat features a harmonious blend of materials. The great room’s helix stairway lends scale and drama, along with a 20’ high ceiling beam and row of clerestory windows. Imparting warmth with huge slabs of old growth redwood, the house leans heavily on local materials.

Striking ammonite stone counters punctuate an open-concept kitchen, along with Japanese “keyaki” wood paneling. Revered for its remarkable grain, the striking hardwood has been liberally deployed across cabinets, doors, and yes, even the fridge. Setting the stage for casual meals, a jarrah wood slab has been expertly cut into an L-shaped bar with natural edge.

Those sleeping upstairs in the primary suite enjoy ocean views through an enormous circular window. Replete with quaint library and cozy reading niche, the primary bedroom affords a dreamy escape with private balcony and spa-like bath that melds hinoki cedar, bamboo tile, and stone shower. The downstairs suite is poised to pamper guests, outfitted with an authentic keyaki Japanese door and glass sliders that spill outward to a private “engawa” deck for quiet contemplation amidst the evening glow.

A one-of-a-kind property terraced exclusively with native plants, the local hummingbirds and bees can’t resist the sweet scent of flowering azaleas. Crisscrossed with deer paths and frequented by a host of native species, including jackrabbits, foxes, bobcats, ospreys and bald eagles, this special property is a veritable oasis for local wildlife. Equipped with two wells, plus an outdoor shower and hot tub, this seaside sanctuary includes a detached cottage with full bath and deck perfect for a live-in nanny or visiting in-laws. An architectural tour de force, there’s nothing else quite like it on the market.
