Experience the enchantment of Mendocino in its prime location! Cedric Hollingsworth, a renowned wood artisan, crafted homes like no other, and now, you have the opportunity to own one of his finest creations. Cedric had a unique approach, building his homes around his life, utilizing rugged beams sourced primarily from historic trestle bridges from the timber heydays.
Every room in his homes unveils a new canvas of imagination, showcasing remarkable craftsmanship and an unwavering commitment to detail. The rich tapestry of this home comes alive with features such as massive fireplaces in harmonious contrast with delicate touches and a touch of whimsy, all meticulously hand-carved from exotic woods. Custom metalwork, wide hewn planks, cleverly designed door handles, and superb cabinetry contribute to the charm, making this home a delightful masterpiece, reminiscent of the enchanting Hobbit house from J.R.R. Tolkien’s tales.
A spacious custom barn on the property houses distinct spaces for a workshop and a separate art studio. The large garden area, once a horse corral, can easily be repurposed if self-sustainability with raised beds is desired. The property borders the 300-acre Point Cabrillo Marine and Nature Preserve. While the ocean view is currently filtered, there’s potential to open it up for expansive, unobstructed vistas of blue skies and whitewater.
Indian Shoals, one of the most coveted neighborhoods on the Mendocino Coast, provides a serene backdrop for this home and its gardens. The property even includes a right of first refusal to purchase the neighboring parcel. The magic of this home is unparalleled and must be experienced in person. Its authenticity, impossible to replicate in today’s terms, reflects the owner’s unwavering dedication to preserving Hollingsworth’s original vision. Don’t let this unique gem pass you by; it’s now on the market for the first time in 16 years!
