Switzer Farm of Westport is the most beautiful place on the Mendocino Coast and perhaps in all of Northern California. The fully restored Victorian farmhouse sits atop 22 secluded acres directly overlooking the Pacific Ocean. It will comfortably accommodate several families traveling together with children. The property is located 35 minutes North of Mendocino and just South of the historic village of Westport.
The home is completely private, situated hundreds of yards from its nearest neighbor. It is further shielded by forested lands to the North, East and West, while enjoying uninterrupted access to and views of the wild Pacific Ocean to the West. Because the entire property is West of Highway 1, there is nothing between the house and the ocean but our own very private meadow and headlands. There are majestic views of the Pacific from every West-side room, upstairs and down, and even from half the East-side rooms. To top it off, there is a beautiful covered veranda spanning the entire West side of the house -- perfect for morning coffee or a sunset family dinner.
The house is very flexible in terms of sleeping accommodations. There are beds and traditional bedrooms to sleep 13 comfortably. There are 3 additional rooms with either queen sofa beds or queen self-inflating air mattresses. Finally, two of the traditional bedrooms have both a traditional queen/full bed and a queen sofa bed. Thus, depending on the makeup of the group, the house can sleep up to 25. The room/bed configurations are as follows:
Bedroom One: 1 queen bed
Bedroom Two: 1 full bed and 1 queen sofabed
Bedroom Three: 1 full bed and 1 queen sofabed
Bedroom Four: 1 queen bed
Bedroom Five: 2 twin beds
Bedroom Six: 1 twin bed
Bedroom Seven: 1 full bed
Living Room: 1 queen sofabed
Library: 1 queen sofabed
Finished Attic/Playroom: 2 self-inflating queen air mattresses
There is a gourmet kitchen with top of the line appliances, a walk-in pantry and laundry room. There are 4 bathrooms, 2 of which have sweeping ocean views. The tables in the dining room and kitchen will seat a total of 20 people. In addition to the main house, there are 2 historic barns and a garden shed, and they too have unimpeded views of the ocean.
The house is named for its original owners, the Switzer family, who built the house in 1884 and farmed the land from the 1870's until 1904, when they sold the property to the Fee family.
