Mendocino Coastal Home for Sale

“Sea Arches” is a Stunning Coastal Modern Architectural Masterpiece

FEATURED in the San Francisco Chronicle, I am pleased to present a beautiful Mendocino coastal home for sale: Sea Arches, a stunning modern architectural masterpiece, perched atop a peninsular promontory rising 160 feet above the Pacific Ocean on northern California’s spectacular Mendocino coast. Surrounded by the ocean on 3 sides and presiding over unparalleled vistas of sea and surf, Sea Arches is approximately 19 acres with 11 acres of gently-sloping bluff top with the remainder consisting of dramatic bluff faces and some 1300 feet of pristine beaches. This one-of-a-kind property also includes one of the famous Elk Sea Stacks, a grouping of remarkable ancient rock outcroppings that tower above the Pacific and add a powerful and dramatic element to the coastal scenery.

Integrated gracefully into its spectacular setting, this Mendocino Coastal Home is set back 500 feet from the Pacific Coast Hwy and is completely screened from public view by more than 400 Monterey cypress trees. Approached by a winding, tree-lined drive, the main house & guesthouse include over 4,200 square feet of modern living space with four bedrooms, two mezzanines, two mini-lofts, & five full bathrooms. All rooms are spacious & the hallways are extra-wide. A cantilevered, raised deck off the living-room mezzanine provides a stunningly close approach to the ocean. Walls of glass invite views of the enchanting scenery in every direction: north to the Elk Sea Stacks, south to Point Arena and its historic lighthouse, west beyond the property’s captive sea stack to the horizon, and east to lofty wooded mountains. All of these vistas are enjoyed from Sea Arches & from the property’s mile-long groomed trails that extend along 2000 feet of oceanfront bluff tops overlooking the beautiful beaches on the north and south side of the home.


“What is it like to live in a place of such natural splendor? Above all, there’s the ever-present sea, its mood ever-changing over the range from calm to tempestuous. There are the unbelievable sunsets, and there are the stunning vistas: coastal views north to the sea stacks and south to Point Arena and its historic lighthouse, west past our captive sea stack to the Orient, and east to lofty wooded mountains. All of those vistas are savored from Sea Arches and from its mile-long groomed trails that extend along oceanfront bluff tops and inland as well.”

 — Owners of Sea Arches


While completely private and secluded, Sea Arches is just a two-minute drive from the charming village of Elk offering quaint and cozy restaurants and inns. A scenic seventeen-mile coastal drive north will bring you to the picturesque & historic seaside village of Mendocino which attracts tourists from near and far. One can also find many world-class wineries in nearby Anderson Valley. All of this just a three-hour drive from San Francisco or if you choose to fly, Little River Airport, with its mile-long runway, is only 16 miles north of Sea Arches.

Truly a special and unique California coastal estate, Sea Arches commands some of the most dramatic coastal views in the world, & offers superb design, construction, & high-end finishes throughout, along with unparalleled beauty, tranquility, and privacy. Sea Arches is truly a special Mendocino coastal home.
