About Jean Johnston

This beautiful area was the inspiration for my artist/sculptor husband. It also was the perfect place to rear our 3 children.

My days almost always begin with a walk on our 2+ miles of uncrowded beach.

Now that our children are grown I have time to pursue my passion, going to gem shows and creating jewelry from my unique finds.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

This home is set back from the highway and located on 3 acres surrounded by pasture land. Follow the paved driveway around to the back of the house and you will find a 1 car garage, a ramp to the back door for easy access and plenty of parking for your cars, boat or RV.

You will also find a secluded yard with a BBQ and comfortable chairs for relaxing.

Watch for deer, herds of elk and covies of quail. You can also enjoy a variety of colorful birds that come to the feeders. (Bird food provided.)

In late August the blackberry vines are hanging with juicy berries. They make delicious cobblers. Bring jars if you like to make jam.

The perfect place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

Jean's house across from the ocean was everything I had hoped it would be. It was large with four bedrooms and two bathrooms, a great room upstairs with a view of the sea and wall to wall carpeting on which our little boys could run on and play and plenty of chairs for the adults to sit in and talk. We were nine, and there was room for us all. Proximity to the ocean was great. We couldn't have been happier.

Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Jean, thank you for allowing my family to stay in your wonderfully relaxing home. I stayed with my 2 adult children and my 3 grandchildren. Jean stopped by to introduce herself and find out if we need anything. A very gracious lady. The kitchen was fully furnished. We did bring coffee, dish soap, laundry soap, paper towels toilet paper. But Jean had already supplied these items. The beds were very comfortable. Plenty of towels. The Great Room upstairs was a peaceful place to have your morning coffee and evening drink, looking at the ocean. Thank you Jean.
