A Loft-Like Summer Home on Shark-Infested Stinson Beach

New, 4 comments

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: Stinson Beach, Calif.
Price: $6,895,000
The Skinny: Judging from the interiors, this property looks like it might be located in a loft building in Soho, but it's actually a small, but stylish, summer house north of San Francisco. Located on famously shark-infested Stinson Beach, the Joseph Esherick-designed contemporary cottage, completed in 1987, is currently listed for a heady $6.895M. That's an especially hefty asking price when one considers the limited square footage, at under 3,000 square feet, and few bedrooms, with just two. Of course, the rich folks who flock to Stinson every summer usually come desirous of such simplicity and this place certainly delivers on that count. The wood-paneled interiors keep up the beachy casual look, with the only variation being an elaborate fireplace that towers over the living room. Practicality also plays a role here, as the beachfront patio is shielded from chilly sea breezes by tall glass panels.
