About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Ladder Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

When you arrive at Hedgegate, you'll immediately feel right at home in this beautifully decorated ocean view home. For one thing, the furniture is stylish and comfortable. Throughout the house you'll find enjoyable art from around the world and original local art; the kitchen is fully stocked with just about everything you might imagine for meal preparation right down to the olive oil, and service for eight. An extensive video & music library ,board games are more than adequate for everyone, unless of course you would rather just sit on the deck and enjoy the great outdoors which is located right outside in all directions. With an ocean view from the hot tub that's always ready you'll enjoy the scenery and view no matter what weather's on the horizon.

About Hawley Holmes

If I didn't enjoy my work as an art curator, I'd choose to live at this wonderful home we call Hedgegate House. Instead, I have chosen to share it with others who may enjoy it as much as I do.

Hawley Holmes purchased this house in 2000

Why Hawley Holmes chose Sea Ranch

The Sea Ranch on the Sonoma Coast is far enough away to get away and close enough to our daily life to make it possible more often than not. About 115 miles from San Francisco but a world away.......

What makes this house unique

Very Private Location at end of a cul-de-sac Four Miles to town and four miles to Sea Ranch Lodge. Walk to Shell Beach.......

Basically, the perfect location.

A Gem in Sea Ranch!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Sea Ranch for years and each time we try a different house- all good experiences. When we drove up the driveway we just smiled- such a lovely setting! The place is very well-equipped and everything is easy to find. And so many interesting pieces of art! We had a wonderful time and plan to stay here again and again!

We stayed a week at Hedgegate House, a wonderful property and experience.

  • 5 of 5

The house is truly a home, artfully decorated, fully stocked unlike any we've encountered. The many windows let the sea air in on demand, allow wildlife viewing up close. Fox, wild turkeys, quail abound. The wood burning fireplace and hot tub greatly added to the ambience, both foolproof. Overall perfect in every way, highly recommended, a fabulous value. And safe from the horrid tragedy of the fires burning 70 miles to our east.

Lovely, private home with ocean views

  • 5 of 5

We are frequent visitors to Sea Ranch but this was our first stay at Hedgegate house. We had a wonderful stay in part due to the thoughtful and thorough efforts made by the property owner to make our stay comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed, we cooked many meals and never wanted for equipment. The loft was enjoyed thoroughly by our 10-year old son who had fun in his own space while still being part of the action downstairs. Hot tub was great for sunset watching. Hawley goes to great lengths to make her guests feel at home. All in all we had an exquisite experience and cannot wait to go back!
