Adagio means to play at a slower pace. Our light and airy contemporary home invites you to slow down and rejuvenate.
Located west of Highway One (the ocean side), the house has an inverted floor plan with large windows all around. A spacious living/dining/kitchen area offers broad views of ocean, meadow and woods. Relax at night in the hot tub under a star-studded sky. There's a telescope for whale watching and wildlife watching. Wireless high-speed internet access is also provided.
Three bedrooms are downstairs, very private and decorated in contemporary colors. The master bedroom (king bed) has a bath with jacuzzi. The middle bedroom (queen bed) opens to a courtyard and hot tub. A third bedroom (twin beds) has its own TV & DVD. The family room also has a foldout sofa bed and another TV & DVD, plus stereo, VCR, and a library of books, tapes, games, puzzles, music and movies.
A trailhead to the ten-mile bluff trail is directly across from the house. It follows a gorgeous coastline and leads to several beaches. You'll find crashing waves, harbor seals, tide pools, and a variety of shore birds.
You're a two-minute walk to a recreation area with an outdoor pool heated year-round plus tennis courts, and sauna. The golf course is a few minutes in the other direction. The town of Gualala, five mintues away, has good restaurants, art galleries, clothing shops, and gourmet food stores.
Evergreen forest surrounds the house on two sides. Wildlife (deer, hawks, harriers, kestrels, jack rabbits, foxes, great blue herons) are common in the meadow areas. The hedgerow along the south side of the property is great for children who like to romp and make forts out of fallen branches. There's a children's playground, beach, tide pool access and a marine sanctuary about a mile away.

Sea Ranch is the special place our family has come to for years. We love this house and its gorgeous privacy and we drive up from the Bay Area when we can (not often enough!). It's such a great place to spend time with friends and family. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have. I'm the one who manages the rentals for the house and look forward to hearing from you.
We were vacationing in a nearby house when we discovered Adagio for sale. It didn't take long to decide we wanted it. The family before us loved the house as we do now. We've shared many important occasions here with family and friends—birthdays, reunions, farewells, and get-better-acquainted time.
How we spend our time: whale watching, walking the headland, picnicking at the beach, trips to town for great meals, shopping, kayaking the rivers, swimming, tennis, observing seals with their new pups & cormorants feeding babies on precarious cliff walls, lazy hours reading. Time is hard to track at the beach.
Close to Del Mar clubhouse with beautiful outdoor pool, tennis courts, sauna, meeting room, exercise classes.
