About this listing
Park Place is a classic riverfront home, spacious and sunny. It's the perfect setting for spending lazy, fun-filled days on the river with family and friends, and a great home-base for exploring the amazing attractions our area offers.
At Park Place, indoors and outdoors merge. Large windows from the living areas look out over the wraparound deck and the panoramic river views beyond. There is plenty of space for lounging and dining, and a large propane barbecue. Stairs from the deck lead down to the riverfront lawn and stairs to a seasonal dock and 2 single kayaks (available mid-June to mid-September). Please note, the riverfront lawn at Park Place runs into that of its neighbor and the lower lawn decking area spans the length of both properties.
The interior of Park Place, located entirely on the upper level, has an attractive open living space with a fully remodeled kitchen, comfortable and stylish couches, and a large dining area that can be set to accommodate 8 people. Doors off the living room and dining room lead to 2 bedrooms (all with comfortable Queen beds) and 2 full bathrooms. From the kitchen, you'll find 2 sleeping spaces (no one has to sleep in the main living room) and the master suite. The first sleeping space has a Double/Twin bunk bed and the second sleeping space has a Double futon. The master suite contains a bedroom and bathroom with a tub/shower combination. The suite also contains a living room with a Double sofa bed, a half bath, small kitchenette with a mini-fridge, sink and latte maker, as well as a wood stove and lovely French doors leading to the deck.
BED SIZES: There are 5 sleeping areas total, sleeping a maximum of 8 guests. Master bedroom: Queen bed; Second bedroom: Queen bed; Third bedroom: Queen bed; Sleeping areas: Twin/Double bunk, Double futon; Suite living room: Double sofa bed
HEAT SOURCE: Central heat; 2 wood stoves (firewood not provided, but is available to purchase locally.)
LOCATION: Riverfront, walk to the town of Monte Rio.
NEIGHBORING HOUSE: One of the charms of Park Place is the expansive riverfront lawn. Part of this lower yard area is shared with the neighbors next door. There is joint access to parts of the expansive lawn from both properties and there is no fencing between the two.
FENCING: There is a high fence along the road side of the property, which provides privacy and serves as a barrier and deterrent for well-behaved dogs under voice-control. There is no fencing on the riverfront lawn or between Park Place and the next door neighbors to the right. If your dog loves to wander, please consider a long leash or guide wire. We love dogs and are dog-friendly but this property is not dog-proofed!
