Prolific novelist Danielle Steel has put her oceanfront compound in Stinson Beach, near San Francisco, up for sale at $8.995 million.
The Cape Cod-inspired beach house and guesthouse sit on two-thirds of an acre along the beach and sand dunes. Behind the gated driveway, whimsical metallic sculptures dot the yard of the home, which has front and rear decks and a hot tub.
A three-sided solarium dining room offers views of the ocean. There are skylights, oak flooring with radiant heating, open-beam ceilings, two fireplaces, four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,424 square feet of living space.
Artwork, sculptures, furniture and bikes are included with the ready-to-go retreat, which was built in 2000 and dubbed Coup de Coeur by the writer.
Steel, 67, often produces several books a year and has sold more than 600 million copies of her novels worldwide, according to her official website. She has written 90 novels and 17 books for children. Her titles this year include “Power Play” and “A Perfect Life.”
Lotte Moore and Sarah Kowalczyk of McGuire Real Estate are her listing agents.
