Dramatic rocky shores, clear blue skies and crashing waves these are what dreams are made of. The coastal homes of Sonoma and Marin counties are awe-inspiring and enviable.

From log cabins set high in the Annapolis hills to octagonal homes on the edge of the sea, the options vary as well as the price gag.  According to recent Zillow reports homes in The Sea Ranch cost $916,400 on average and Bodega Bay $911,600. But if you head slightly inland, homes in Annapolis cost around $774,000 and are still minutes from the sea.

On top of the million-dollar vistas, these coastal beauties share a few common amenities.  Many have wrap-around decks, hot tubs, fireplaces and indoor/outdoor floor plans that maximize on their natural surroundings.
