Perched on a knoll overlooking Little River Bay and Island, this fabulous south-facing home offers spectacular views from almost every room with the windows of the kitchen, living room/dining room, den, and master bedroom all framing beautiful vistas of the majestic Pacific. Originally the HISTORIC Little River Blacksmith Shoppe, La Bella Vista has been completely remodeled and expanded to include a second floor master suite with a picture window and sitting area; a spacious kitchen with tons of counter tops and cabinetry, built-in wine storage, and a separate dining area; a cozy living room; and a guest bedroom with ensuite bath. During the remodel, a new perimeter, thermal windows, redwood siding on the south face, and a new roof and gutters were installed. An 8' redwood fence (built to withstand 85 mph winds) encloses beautiful gardens, a bricked-in patio and a redwood deck, creating your own private escape from the world. Rounding out the package are many extras including an expanded workshop with wood storage, and a 20 KW generator with automatic transfer switch.
