Front deck and view; bluff trail across the street
Well, the supplies are all put away, the equipment is all organized. Internet, two flat-screen TV’s, stereos, videos…La Boussole has developed into a lovely and very nicely equipped home. Please be in touch to reserve your getaway while there are still openings for the summer. This Sea Ranch home is a stand-out for many reasons!

Dining room and view windows

“La Boussole” translates to The Compass, named to evoke a place to become clear, and to re-orient oneself. Expanded around a central enclosed courtyard, this large vacation home provides a true base for a completely refreshing getaway. You’ll find ample spaces, with many options for privacy or separation when needed. There are also several areas for regrouping when it’s time to come together. Outdoor living is easy in the courtyard which is nicely sheltered from our mistral wind. The private courtyard includes a lawn, large deck, large hot tub, charcoal BBQ, and plenty of seating and is flanked by the studio and the house.

The house is split-level, and offers a master bedroom and bathroom at one end, and two bedrooms and two baths at the other end. In between, is the large ocean-view dining room right off the kitchen, then up a few steps to the roomy living room with its walls of windows and large fireplace.

The studio is a huge, bright open space for watching TV, relaxing, reading, gazing at the beauty outside, as well as additional sleeping space. There is a small desk in the loft for those who may need a work or study area. The loft also provides a casual seating/lounging arrangement. There is a half-bath in the studio.

While inwardly protecting the wonderful courtyard, La Boussole also opens brightly to her wild and beautiful north coast surroundings. Not far from the shore, one can gaze out at crashing waves and broad ocean views, and enjoy the rugged coastal and hillside expanses. Hiking is a cinch! The trail is just a few feet from the front door, and presents a choice of bluff, hillside or meadow rambles. And a short distance on foot will bring you to the Ohlson Ranch Center pool and tennis, just beyond the Stengle Beach access.

A recent acquisition for new owners, La Boussole has undergone a loving transformation. Be one of the first to experience this lovely vacation home, and set your own new course!
