Located on a secluded ridge with COMMANDING VIEWS of the Pacific coastline and of the recently designated CALIFORNIA COASTAL NATIONAL MONUMENT, the 1665 acre Point Arena Public Headlands. Stretch out in this 3100 SQUARE FOOT, custom four bedroom, two bath home (fourth bedroom off of the enclosed courtyard). The house sits on a very private 112 ACRES. PRIVATE GATED ACCESS TO IRISH BEACH; 6 miles of pristine sandy beach.

QUALITY FURNISHING throughout, including antiques, handmade oriental carpets, leather sofas, comfortable beds, and quality bed linens. Our home also boasts hardwood floors, large stone wood-burning fireplace (with ample firewood and kindling), tile kitchen and baths, large deck and patio. Three outdoor dining areas on patio, deck and ECLOSED COURTYARD and lounge chairs for maximum outdoor enjoyment. FULLY EQUIPPED KITCHEN with stainless steel appliances. Dining table with leaves will accommmodate up to 10. Also, 3 TV's (2 on satelite, 1 HD), and FREE INTERNET.

The bed configuration is a king in the master, a queen in the 1st guest bedroom; a double and twin bed plus a queen sleeper sofa in the 2nd guest bedroom, and a king in the fourth bedroom.

Or you might just want to stay home, watch the sunset, and curl up around a roaring fire. We also have a LIBRARY complete with board games, leather-bound editions of many literary classics, and jigsaw puzzles.

OTHER ACTIVITIES include beach strolling on 6 MILE Manchester/Irish Beach, tide-pooling on Irish Beach, abalone shell hunting on nearby Bowling Ball beach, hiking the headlands of the Point Arena lighthouse, hiking and mountain biking on the property.

About Yvonne Schell

My husband and I love the ocean and the forests of northern California. We are in the business of preserving forestlands and timberlands, and work with several conservation groups to achieve this. The redwoods, and some endangered species are protected on this property by a conservation easement.

Yvonne Schell purchased this house in 2000

Why Yvonne Schell chose Manchester

This part of the northern California coast is wild and rugged. I call it the 'overlooked coast', because it is so sparsely populated. You can walk on the beach for 3 hours and not see another person. There is a wildness to it that other parts of the coast don't have. There is also great hiking on the headlands and through the redwoods on the property. Going to Point Arena is like a walk back in time; some would call it eclectic, others would call it just plain 'funky'. When that gets old, take a drive up to the very 'chic' hamlet of Mendocino to the north or the artsy, more down home town of Gualala to the south.

The other reasons why this is such a great area is (1)Manchester/Irish beach, at 6 miles long,is one of the longest along the coast, it also has good tidepooling on its north end (2) Historic Point Arena lighthouse and headlands - fun to visit,look at, and great hiking. (3) Bowling ball beach, well known to photographers and geologists alike; spectacular, a must see, great abalone shell hunting and tide-pooling.

What makes this house unique

THE VIEWS. The SPACIOUSNESS of the setting and of the house itself. You can see up and down the coastline, watch the surf, the weather, the sunsets. I also love the QUIET. Sitting on 112 acres and surrounded by large acreage, it's very quiet, and very dark at night; great for star gazing. The fireplace is also great; it's huge, you can get quite the bonfire going. With wood floors and built-in cabinets, the house has a very warm and welcoming feel, plus all of the rooms are extra large. The other things we enjoy are stated above.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Yvonne and Steve, we had a lovely stay again. No whales but lots of good beach walks, tidepools and puzzles.

Great adventure

  • 5 of 5
I have been renting vacation homes in different area through out California, this is the home that i will remember for life. What a great adventure driving to the house from highway 1. Super secluded location that you will feel like you own the entire mountain. The house is very spacious, very large master bedroom. And this AMAZING VIEW, we are 3 families with toddler kids and all had great time. Kitchen has everything you could possibly need. Kids love playing both back yard and front yard, we did not have to tell them calm down their voices, because there is NO NEIGHBOR. Driving down to Irish beach is fun and also consider a nice adventure. Love to come back very soon. Worth the drive from Los Angeles, my cousins family drove from Seattle Washington and all had such a great time and planning to meet in this beautiful house again.

We loved the total seclusion, fantastic views of the ocean, spacious rooms and spotless home. The 1.5 mile drive to the house is worth the trip.
We have rented quite a few properties on VRBO and this is absolutely one of the best!!!

We enjoyed a fabulous week's vacation with grown children and grandchildren at this scenic location. We enjoyed walks on the beach, kayaking, trips to Mendocino, as well as hikes in and around the house. The roomy house and wonderful kitchen/dining area made our stay outstanding.
