Just-renewed hideaway in the Mendocino hills
Serenity defines this twenty-plus-acre country retreat in the pines above Alexander Valley and Cloverdale. Within the tranquil refuge at 25001 Cloverdale Peak Road, sleekly modern interiors complement the rustic setting at every turn.
The clean, open floor plan takes full advantage of the surrounding scenery, from a picturesque swimming pond (spring-fed and aerated for refreshing dips all summer) to the sweep of valley, vineyard and Coast Range views beyond.
In the kitchen, disappearing wall doors open the entire space to a tree-shaded multilevel deck with fire pit and long, exhilarating vistas down the valley.
From the main floor, a dramatic staircase rises to the upper level and three bedroom suites, including a master retreat with glorious views of the sparkling pond and the green-and-golden landscape beyond.
Over the garage, a spacious game room and loft are ready for a range of uses. Fragrant forest hiking is just outside your door, and the water sports and wildlife of Clear Lake, California’s largest natural lake, are just thirty minutes away.
A charming array of wine tasting rooms, local shops and restaurants wait to be explored in the local village. The property’s location just over the border in Mendocino County opens the possibility of building more structures on the expansive parcel.
This one-of-a-kind country haven is listed by Peter Colbert and Mark Altes at $1,600,000.
