$4.5 million Bolinas house is a surfer's paradise

This summer colony house was forged from coastal redwoods in 1909 by a sea captain. Now, it's a dream home for a seafaring adventurist, meditative yogi, or artist.

Fully restored, the double lot immersed in lush native foliage maintains its original hand hewn charm. Fusing multiple eras and styles in restorations and the addition of modern amenities, the house evokes a certain poetic character. Exposed beams, peaked ceilings, and a stone fireplace add in cozy elements reminiscent cabin living. Rustic vibes carry over to built-in shelving with exposed wood and a free-standing tub in the bathroom, while contemporary touches like stainless steel appliances are juxtaposed again a live edge breakfast counter to create a style that's both romantic and playful.

Beyond the main house sit two additional cottages tucked under large redwood trees. Use them as quiet getaways for guests or even yourself as a quiet workspace or zen retreat—the high vaulted ceilings with abundant natural light and wood burning stove will provide all the inspiration you need. Gardens twist around the structures, pathways, and multi-tier stone patios crafted by a master stone mason, perfect for entertaining, barbecuing or just chilling in the sun. There are even three private outdoor showers to rinse off the sand and salt from a quick saunter to the Brighten Beach, just 100 feet away.

Also on the property is a car port with wide door that open to fill the space in light and air. It's the ideal chill space for a workshop or lounge. If you're looking for a creative haven to call home, this is it.
