18 Avenida Farralone, Stinson Beach, CA
Nestled at the bottom of the Willow Camp trail, neighboring Golden Gate National Recreation Area open space, lies one of the most private and unforgettable settings along the coastline of California located at 18 Avenida Farralone Stinson Beach CA.
The Sans Souci estate is now available on the public market for the first time in over 40 years. Named by former owner Jerry Garcia, Sans Souci means without compare and is loosely translated to mean no worries. The compound is aptly named because its retreat-like quality is unique.
The property’s spectacular 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean are as far reaching as San Francisco, the Farrallon Islands and the most Western tip of California’s coast. The lodge-like layout on approximately 1.1 acre is comprised of a newly built three-bedroom, two and one-half bath main residence, the carriage house that has been remodeled to include a bedroom with one bath, and the original studio with bath. Notably Jerry’s recording studio. Traditional in the exterior design, the living areas total approximately 2,652 square feet surrounded by an impeccably maintained garden with pathways that wind around to a generous pool and spa for all day sun and relaxation. A dramatic stone patio with fireplace, perfect for soirees, celebrations and majestic sunsets is located on the opposite side of the main residence from the pool.
Having the perfect backdrop for family living or entertaining, the newly built home offers the best in quality finishes starting with the appliances, the custom built cabinetry and kitchen island down to the handmade Heath tile. The living room is full of light with a 32-foot moveable glass wall that brings the outside into the inside living space. The tall, 17-foot living room ceilings are anchored by beautiful manufactured Microline White Oak floors. One lightly flows throughout the home from the back bedrooms out to the expansive main living area.
Less than a ten-minute walk to the beach, Sans Souci once having a Bohemian past offers a refuge merging simple sophisticated design with casual living where the crown nest meets the sea.
