A classic 1905 riverside home in beautiful and historic Villa Grande. It retains its original character and charm. Minutes walk from one of the best beaches on the river. This home offers a tranquil, beautiful retreat, free from life's distractions. A few minutes walk from Patterson Point Preserve Beach, this home is located away from the main road, and despite being surrounded by majestic redwoods, gets morning and afternoon sun.
Enjoy morning and afternoon sun on the front porch while sitting on the rocking chair or having breakfast or lunch. Original Douglas fir floors, beamed ceilings, antique furnishings, wood stove insert. Round oak dining room table expands to accommodate 6 people. The back bedroom has a queen size oak bed with a very comfortable European Sleepworks mattress. Enjoy river views through the large picture windows. The front room has a full size antique Mahogany bed with a European Sleepworks mattress and offers garden views, large closet, and an antique Cherry bureau. Enjoy a warm bath in the large clawfoot bathtub in the bathroom. There is a fold-up cot which can be used as an additional bed. A Weber charcoal grill is located in the back. The home is an older home and thus will appear less clean than a newer home.
Guests can access the entire house.
