2 BR, 2 Bath w/ Great Views & Privacy

The Panoramic House is a one of a kind landmark built in the 1960s by a local school teacher, Ron Crandall and his family. The house is built entirely out of recycled building materials salvaged from the greater bay area. Windows from Victorian mansions sit next to massive timbers from shipyards and cobblestones pulled from the pre-internet era streets of San Francisco. Inspired by farmhouses and wineries from the Brittany region of France, but also designed to echo the surrounding bays, hills and the shadow of Mt. Tamalpais it sits in, the Panoramic House will stick in your minds eye long after you've left it.

the Owners

John Baccigaluppi and Robert Lurie are friends and business associates based in California and New York who met through their shared love of surfing and music. At some point, in between surf sessions in Bolinas and Montauk and recording sessions in NYC and CA, the idea of "Wouldn't it be amazing if we had a place we could play music and surf on the coast," became a reality and we're grateful to be able to share it with our family, friends and you.

More About the Property

The current owners bought the house in 2013 and carefully upgraded it while staying true to the original vision for the property. Local Stinson Beach builders Woodworking West headed up the work on the house and carefully blended new and vintage recycled building materials. The kitchen for instance features all new appliances and a Wolf range, but blends in perfectly with the original hand built wood burning oven made from vintage terra cotta castings.

Every room in the house features amazing views of Stinson Beach and the Bolinas bay and lagoon. On a clear day, you can see Pt. Reyes in the distance. There is a seasonal creek on the property, three decks to enjoy the outdoor views and a separate small cottage for additional guests. A short walk takes you to the famous Dipsea trail and down into town and the beach. Deer, bobcats, birds and more are frequent visitors. Moreover as the current owners are musicians, the house is filled with musical instruments and art. This property is the perfect place for an artist or musician to retreat, recharge and create.

Away From it All..

“This down-to-earth escape is 'NorCal Bohemia' at its finest.” We had planned a bunch of activities during our stay, but the house was so cool, vibey and comfortable it became the vacation... An original destination to be remembered."
