The Landing has four extraordinary properties, each varying in size and design. The Cooper Residence sits on the headland with 360-degree views of the ocean and countryside. The Gabriel Residence has four bedrooms and is surrounded by lush farmland, while the Vineyard Villa, as its name suggests, is tucked among the vines. The Boathouse is waterfront and has huge bi-fold doors on three sides, offering remarkable views over the bay.
