Property description

Located on Clear Ridge in the heart of Big Sur, this stunning Redwood and glass, 3,100 sq. ft. private solar residence is perfect for family get together or a romantic getaway. A peaceful retreat home, vaulted ceilings and walls of glass and 4 expansive decks overlooking its own 20-acres w/ a stream & pond, beautiful meadows against dramatic Redwoods and ocean views down my own valley. No visible neighbors but the deer and other wildlife, mature redwoods, oaks, sycamore and other native trees. Private walking trail, ancient redwood-lined stream, large octagonal deck and natural seating.

Due to the privacy the neighbors have sought out and deserve, even though events or weddings may not be in view ,we respect them by not hosting events or weddings.

The master bedroom spans the entire upper level, with a redwood-mantel fireplace and a very spacious private, ocean view, sun deck. It's large walk-in shower takes in the ocean and giant redwood views.On the lower level a private suite has its own entrance & deck, with queen-size bed, full bathroom, glass shower and same gorgeous views. The main level's entertainment room easily converts to a very comfortable additional bedroom with a queen-size bed and adjoining bathroom with large spa-tub. Two queen air mattresses, futons and linens are also available for additional sleeping for the kids.

Big-screen satellite tv and dvd, stereo w/ipod plug, full kitchen, and a wood-burning stove fireplace with plenty of firewood. Wifi is available.

From Hwy 1, you’ll enter through an electric gate and bridge over the Big Sur River, next to the famous Big Sur River Inn. You rise up from the river and the classic Big Sur Valley to the mountain ridgeline at 1,200 hundred feet with a view of the world, then descend toward the Pacific Ocean to a private valley. Clear Ridge Road also continues to a second gated entrance, opening to world-renowned Pfeiffer Beach. There is also great hiking in Andrew Molera State Park next door to Clear Ridge, with its wild, isolated beaches and mystical redwood and oak forests. As one of Big Sur's finest private wilderness environments, once you arrive, you won't want to leave. It's serenity defined. Stretch out and enjoy.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From beaches to mountains... hike along the streams in the cool, tree lined valleys. Climb up on the high ridges for a spectacular view of the coastline on the western slope and gaze into three million acres of wilderness in the Los Padres National Forest on the eastern slope. Evenings can offer spectacularly clear skies, which are perfect for star gazing. Bring layers of clothing because it can be sunny in the afternoon and very cool in the evening. Or you can choose to just relax and take in the magnificent beauty of Big Sur. Once you are here there is no reason to do anything more. Replenish your spirit by simply absorbing the weepingly beautiful vistas of Big Sur. Do Nothing in Big Sur and leave refreshed and rejuvenated from head to toe. Big Sur has been here for millions of years. We don't have that luxury. Make your reservation today!
