Danielle Steel, famous romance novelist is putting her colorful home in Stinson Beach, Calif. on market, asking $8.99 million. The modern 3,425-square-foot home which sits on 0,66 acre lot is located on a private stretch called “Seadrift” on Stinson Beach. At the gated driveway visitors are greeted by whimsical art, including metallic sculptured giraffes and gorillas. Interiors feature light hardwood flooring, high ceilings and large glass doors and windows. The four bedroom, four bath home is filled with whimsical details such as blue chairs, lip-shaped pillows and floor-to-ceiling open shelving housing a world class colored glass and shell collection.
The home boasts an oceanside solarium, two fireplaces, and a modern eat-in kitchen with a wooden mid-rise island. Outside you’ll find decks in the front and back yards, a hot tub, and two-thirds of an acre of beach dunes. Steel purchased the lot in 1997 for $500,000, and in 2000 she built the residence, which is now on sale.
