Bolinas home designed by boatbuilders asks $4.75M

Wood you?

You want a hidden home brimming with eccentric oddities and charm? This Bolinas midcentuy, built in 1958, has it in spades—and then some.

Featuring two bedrooms, four bathrooms, and 3,480 square feet, 8 Ocean was reimagined in the 1970s by an architect and a gaggle of Sausalito boatbuilders who refashioned the place with its current unique look. The exposed beams are made of tree trunks, a bold aboral statement that extends itself into the bedrooms.

A vaulted ceiling can still be found in the living room, which, care of a series of glass doors, opens up to the outside and boasting views of the ocean.

Other whimsical details here include a wooden Dutch door with sun and flower carvings, a built-in couch, and—most impressive—the greenhouse-like bathroom with a blue tiled showed in the center, as well as an exceedingly peaceful, skylight-adorned toilet area overlooking a stone path. Lovely.

A home fitting for the kooky yet lovable coastal enclave. Asking is $4,750,000; the listing is through Alexa Glockner of Compass and Scott Murphy of Vice Properties.
