Located on a knoll, yet near the ocean, this well-equipped home has unobstructed breath-taking panoramic ocean and coastal views over ocean meadows and signature Sea Ranch cypress hedge rows. The elevated location of Bella Vista is unique to Sea Ranch: it offers the advantages of expansive views usually found only from hill-side locations, while the home is actually situated on the ocean (west) side of the scenic coastal Highway One, quiet, well shielded from highway noise, and without traffic between the home and the ocean bluffs.

Rent Bella Vista
The Bella Vista home was built in 1987, and the rented space has approximately 1700 sq.ft. living area. It features terra cotta tiles and rough cedar walls in all rooms except the bedrooms. Extra-large view windows, warm and decorative lighting, comfortable furniture, and a central forced-air heating system - augmented by heat radiated from the desirable wood-burning stove - will contribute to making your stay pleasant and memorable. The living room includes a mezzanine with a well tuned German Grotrian-Steinweg piano. In addition to the hot tub (built into the deck off the master bedroom), one of the bathrooms includes a jacuzzi tub. The kitchen is well equipped with high quality modern appliances, such as a silent Bosch dishwasher, a Jennair range, and a side-by-side refrigerator with outside ice dispenser. While you are preparing your meals, you will enjoy the magnificent, unobstructed ocean and coastal views.
Due to the split-level floor plan, Bella Vista is not suited for wheelchairs.
Bella Vista Location: Commanding Views
With a desirable elevation of about 80 ft above Leeward Road and the developments in the ocean meadow below Bella Vista offers majestic views above rooftops of the ocean and coastal bluffs up and down the coast. Highway 1 cannot be seen from Bella Vista, and berms and rich vegetation shelter from any and all traffic noises. Tallgrass ends in a cul-de-sac and sees essentially no traffic, and Leeward Road and all other roads are private and carry only very scarce residential traffic. A 5-min walk takes you to the bluff-top trail which is about 400 yards away.
