Imagine your own private view of Mendocino Bay and the Pacific Ocean, sitting on the balcony or in the living room, watching the sun set....or rise. You can hear the waves hitting the cliffs below the house and see the whales at sea.
You are surrounded by the artwork of Bill and Jennie Zacha, founders of the Mendocino Art Center. Casa Zacha was their home, which Bill designed and built in 1964.
Artists Dorr Bothwell, Toshi Yoshida, Hilda Pertha, Fran Moyer, and Charles Stevenson, and many others gathered here on many evenings to share ideas, to celebrate and to plan. They sipped red wine, ate Spaghetti Carbonara and reaped inspiration for their next work of art.
There is no better view or location in the village than Casa Zacha. You are in town, at the West end of Main Street, yet in a very quiet area across from the Headlands State Park. You are steps to the best that Mendocino culture has to offer—great restaurants, galleries, the Mendocino Art Center, the Mendocino Theatre Company, Music Festival, & Film Festival.
Casa Zacha is most suited to sophisticated couples wanting a classic Mendocino experience. There are three private bedrooms. The master bedroom has a queen bed, magnificent view and is attached to two baths. A second bedroom has a twin and double bed, ocean view from it's private deck, and an shared bath (connected to one previously mentioned). A third bedroom has a full bed, small sink, and enormous library. The baths are as unique as the rest of the house. The shower room has two showers.
The kitchen is stocked with everything (spices, condiments) needed to create a gourmet meal and entertain friends.
One-of-a-kind antiques and original artworks throughout the house will delight the eye and excite the imagination.
Keywords: Casa Zacha is a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired design, offering a peaceful and private retreat,
without any neighbors to bother you.
Raised in Mendocino, and in this house since I was eight, I am ready to share it with others. I spend half my time out of the area and am happy to give others the chance to enjoy this magnificent place.
Lucia purchased this apartment in 1962
This is the family home where I grew up. I lived here with my parents, Bill and Jennie Zacha, the artists who drew their friends to this town and created the artists’ community it has become. My parents first saw Mendocino in 1957. As described by Look Magazine in a 1962 article, “it was virtually a ghost town. Its population, completely dependent on a dying lumber industry, was dwindling. The town had lost interest in itself; there was absolutely nothing doing. How Bill Zacha revived it is indeed a miracle.” In Bill’s words, “Towns have souls and needs like other living things. People forget this. When I first saw Mendocino, I became excited. It had an unusual, almost unearthly quality about it - pure, quiet, unsullied - but it was dying. I knew I could help it, help it get back on its feet and make it a place where people would get a simple but profound satisfaction out of living.'
After starting the Mendocino Art Center, my parents (and I) spent many years visiting and living in Italy and Japan. The influence of these countries is quite evident in the artwork throughout the house. My parents loved to entertain. While my life has taken me to Oregon now, where I spend most of my time, I want to share this home with those who appreciate its unique architecture, 60’s sophistication, and magnificent views.
The best benefit is that once you park the car everything is within a 5 block radius!
And once inside the house you are in a private, peaceful sanctuary....with a view!
The great location allowed for quick jaunts to shops, restaurants and the store. The views from inside the house and from the deck were incredible. The amenities allowed us to cook and enjoy each other's company the days we decided to stay in.
We had a wonderful time in Mendocino. This property had the best location in town. We had a great time and can't wait to come back.
Great view and location Its nice to be able to park your car and have everything you need at your hands in walking distance. A queen bed would be nice for tall and big men my size. Will definitely use again soon Thanks
It is enough to say that The family would love to come back here every summer .
My wife and I couldn't have asked for a better launching pad / retreat for a weekend wedding in Mendocino. Casa Zacha is located in town facing the headlands with a breathtaking view from the spacious open plan living area and large patio. It also has a functional wood burning fireplace which made for cozy evenings in the fog. Check in was a breeze and the place was spotless when we arrived. There was even a log pile all made up in the fireplace just waiting for us to light the kindling. The host Anna was exceptional; we had an emergency at home (sprinklers went off in our condo) and had to cut our trip short by one day, and Anna was kind enough to give us a refund for the last day even though I doubt she was able to rent it back out on such short notice. Over all it was an amazing experience and we would not hesitate to stay here again on our next trip to Mendocino!
