Overview

About the property

2 bedrroom, 2 bath, 1600 sq. ft home on a fully-fenced serene and private acre

“Redwood Majic” is a serene and intensely quiet property, ringed by towering magical redwoods yet located less than a mile from the charming Mendocino Village.

This two-story, 1600 sq. ft, two-bedroom, two-bath home is set within a private, fully fenced dog-friendly acre of lush ferns and towering California redwoods.

You will feel you are a world away but it’s just minutes to The Village or Mendocino Headlands State Park and its 350 acres of rocky bluffs and open space overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

This lovely home is an easy walk or short drive to some of America’s most beautiful countryside, miles of stunning beaches, hiking trails, world-class wineries and more.

To discover Redwood Majic, take the lovely drive west on Highway 128, then north along Highway 1 into the delightful Village of Mendocino. You will pass cypress trees and redwood groves, drive through the gates and up a long driveway lined with magnificent and ancient California redwoods, soaring over 200 feet into the sky!

The fast pace of the world will disappear when you enter this gracious home.

And while Mendocino Village is recognized for its excellent restaurants, our home’s large country kitchen has everything you’ll need for cooking wonderful meals. The Kitchen features an apron sink, open shelving and plenty of counter space and storage. A 6-foot-long butcher block island has seating for two and the dining table seats six. Just outside the kitchen is a high end Weber 3-burner (plus sideburner) BBQ set on an expansive wrap-around Deck with plenty of built-in seating and garden chairs. It’s perfect for enjoying a glass of wine while contemplating the stars and the stunningly beautiful redwood forest that rings the property.

The Kitchen and Dining Area flow into the Living Room graced with large windows and vaulted wooden ceilings. There is seating for seven and a new 42-inch Smart TV with access to hundreds of stations as well as Pandora radio for music. Free wifi, of course! Bookshelves offer reading material, something for everyone, so slow down and relax.

Upstairs, the large windows in the light-filled 600-square-foot Master Suite provide views on three sides over the gardens and to the treetops. The Suite has plenty of closet and storage space as well as a large reading area with a romantic window seat featuring garden and forest views. A California King bed with a firm mattress is laid with fine linens and topped with a down comforter and the Bathroom features a skylight, plenty of plush towels, a large pedestal sink and a shower big enough for two.

The Downstairs Bedroom has wood paneled ceilings and views of the garden plus a fascinating redwood stump that was cut during the 1800s. It is easily 7 feet tall and covered with moss. A huckleberry bush is now growing from the top!

The Downstairs Bedroom features ample closet and drawer space, a California King bed with firm mattress, fine linens and a down comforter. Its bath, with pedestal sink and large shower, is stocked with plenty of fluffy towels.

The gardens—potted plants around the house plus an expansive open space fringed with ferns and towering California redwood trees—is acreage worth exploring. The property is rich with hydrangea, rhododendron, purple Princess flowers and lilac. See if you can find a fairy ring beneath the redwood trees! Local wildlife includes osprey, chipmunks, squirrels, possum, raccoon, deer and more.

Along the coast, we have otters, whales and seals and we are famous for our schools of sardines and salmon runs. Harvest Market offers a wonderful selection of organic foods and fresh fish but you can also buy direct from the fishermen as they unload their catch in the harbor, a real treat.

Come and visit our very special home—Redwood Majic in Mendocino—soon!

About Susie Edlund

I am a horsewoman by profession and lived in Southern California where I was involved in riding and polo—such joy! I bought Redwood Majic in 2006 and retired to Mendocino Village in 2015. I love the clear air and the slower pace of living here. And since I still travel a great deal, I love to share my home with others who appreciate all that our lovely little Mendocino Village and the surrounding area have to offer, that very special Mendocino magic and the magical redwoods.

Susie Edlund purchased this house in 2006

Why Susie Edlund chose Mendocino

I wanted to be in the redwoods because they are so very special but I also wanted to be within walking distance of the Village, beach and Headlands. Privacy and quiet were very important and so, after a long search, I chose Redwood Majic. Ringed by towering redwoods, Redwood Majic is a secluded and quiet enclave hidden from the world, offering that special Mendocino magic of clean air with a touch of salt from the Pacific Ocean, the magical redwoods and a slower pace of life. Our Redwood Majic is close enough to the ocean that you can hear the ocean crashing on the rocks during rough weather and the seals barking. And when the fog rolls in from the coast, blankets the Village and creeps across Highway 1, we at Redwood Majic are just far enough east to still enjoy California sunshine! Amazing!

What makes this house unique

Sunny days when it is foggy on the coast plus a beautiful redwood forest—serene and majestic.

Plus it is just minutes to Mendocino Village and the ocean, the spectacular Big River Trail and other terrific walks.

And because dogs are special, we cater to them with a fully fenced, gated acre where they are protected and can run to their heart’s content. You might not notice it because of the trees and the lushness of the property, but the fence is wire and will keep in the miniature dogs too. So, do bring your pets!

Come and stay at Redwood Majic in Mendocino soon!

If you love redwoods....

  • 5 of 5

If you love redwoods, you'll love staying in this incredibly peaceful home surrounded by redwood trees. I feel I have still not emphasized enough that the property is nestled in a private grove of redwoods in various stages of growth, truly magical. The kitchen and dining area is especially warm and inviting to be in. The upstairs suite is also very comfortable and pleasant. We walked into Mendocino Village from the house, it only took us twenty-five minutes and spared us the headache of parking. We hope to return in the future and until then, will remember our time here fondly.

Beautiful, easy, and quiet

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our extended weekend here with our young children. They enjoyed exploring the yard and discovering banana slugs, it is an easy drive to the local market, beach, and many other areas to explore. The house was well-appointed and if we needed something, it was always in the first place we looked. The host was easy to communicate with and helpful. All in all, we're hoping to come back for vacation soon.

We are very happy with this beautiful place! Susie takes such good care of us. She puts her heart into her lovely home and are so thoughtful about all details! This is the ideal place for our Mendocino exploration and our puppy loves the toys Susie prepared...a beautiful home in the redwood with a loving hostess!

Thank you Susie!

Perfect, quiet get-away with your furry friends!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home in Mendocino ~ spacious, open, lots of light in the midst of gorgeous old redwoods where your dog can romp and play...it was a delight! Susie is a wonderful host with just the right amount of "attention" to you, and yet giving you space.

Kitchen is wonderful for cooking, beds comfortable, and I have not been in any cleaner shared space ~ it was as if it had just been "opened."

Easy access to Mendocino, the beach along Big River or Ft. Bragg and so much to do everywhere ~ but you may not want to leave the property!!

Thank you for sharing this amazing home with such graciousness.

Fantastic Home

  • 5 of 5

A lovely secluded fenced acre home - a 4 minute drive into Mendocino. The home is well equipped and has all the amenities you could desire. We stayed a week but could have stayed a month. Hopefully we will be able to return.

Wonderful Mendocino Home in the Woods

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay here. It had everything we needed and we were very, very comfortable. We stayed with two boys so the accommodations were terrific. It is important to note that the 2nd bedroom is a loft over the family room so has less privacy than the first floor bedroom. So the people that want to stay up late watching TV should stay in the loft :) Also, the loft has skylights which let in lovely light early in the morning so it might be a bit problematic for people who want to sleep late. The grounds were terrific and having the fenced in yard was wonderful with our dog. It's a 5 minute drive (or less) into Mendocino and only a little bit longer to about 5 amazing hikes. We were really happy and would stay here again for sure.
