Stylish beach house captures serene views of Northern California’s coast


This contemporary beach house retreat features breathtaking seaside views along California’s Stinson Beach, stylishly renovated by Arrowood Design. The home provides a weekend getaway for a professional coupe who resides full time in San Francisco. They were seeking a place for complete relaxation and bountiful ocean vistas. They purchased a three bedroom, three bath— 2,225 square foot ranch house, built in 1962. The home already had views, but needed to be updated to meet their lifestyle needs.

A full gut renovation was completed on the kitchen and bathrooms, ceiling trusses were exposed and new flooring was added throughout. Casual yet elegant furnishings and accessories grace the living spaces, creating a warm and welcoming living environment. Furnishings includes flea market and vintage store finds mixed in with contemporary furnishings to create a relaxing atmosphere.

What We Love: This stylish beach house offers comfortable living spaces and beautiful views that are peaceful and relaxing. The conversion is fantastic, from an open and spacious interior layout to exposed ceiling beams and new flooring materials. This is the perfect weekend retreat, but we could imagine spending year-round luxuriating in this beach-chic living environment… and that deck, sunsets over the ocean would be heavenly!
