Modern Zen is a sophisticated and tasteful blend of modern and serene. Set in the redwoods of Cazadero near Austin Creek, this mid-century modern compound embraces stylish amenities like a new hot tub, remodeled kitchen, outdoor shower and entertainment technology. And yet, you're away from it all in a two bedroom main house and separate private suite. Outside is divine! The main deck sports a dining table for morning mimosas and alfresco meals, propane BBQ, large hammock (that gets a perfect amount of sunshine in the afternoon), plenty of welcoming seating and views up the hillside and into the redwood trees. It's the perfect gathering place between the main house and the private suite. Around the corner and completely private, a 6 person hot tub awaits. Just steps away is a private outdoor shower, hooks for towels and gate to the lower yard and fully fenced dog run. In the main house the freshly remodeled kitchen has all new stainless steel appliances including dishwasher, a multi-tiered island and is open to the dining area and comfortable living room. The kitchen is well-appointed with quality cookware and colorful Fiestaware. This open floorplan is ideal for group cooking and congregating. No one is left out of the fun! Spread out in the living room to watch TV or stream music through the new flat screen Roku TV. Retreat to your cozy bedroom with a memory foam king bed and one with a queen bed. Each bedroom has a TV and sliding glass doors to the deck and hot tub. Get ready in the stylish main bathroom with heated floors, tiled shower/tub combo and marble counter top. Cross the multi-level deck to the charming private suite with queen bed, separate comfortable seating area with TV and DVD player, full bathroom with heated floors and kitchenette with washer and dryer. This space is equally inviting when sun streams through the windows or rain patters on the roof. Make coffee in the kitchenette or grab a snack from the mini fridge before joining everyone in the main cottage for breakfast. It's a dog owner's paradise! In addition to the fenced dog run, Modern Zen offers two dog beds, several toys and a collapsible dog crate. Native ferns, rhododendrons and thimbleberries thrive under the redwood trees with Japanese maples, climbing roses and camellias. Families, friends, dog owners and everyone else will love staying at this peaceful retreat in the woods - that's just a short drive to world class restaurants and wineries. Hiking in Armstrong Redwoods State Park or along the Sonoma Coast is minutes away.
