Big Sur cabin description

We are only 23 miles south of the Monterey Peninsula, located on a private, electronic gated road. Perched 950 feet above the Pacific Ocean on the west side of Highway One, The Teapot view is unsurpassed. My father often said, 'You can see all the way to Maui.' Directly above Pfeiffer Beach, it is possible to see migrating Grey whales, Humpbacks, porpoises, sea otters, condors, plus an occasional hang glider landing below.

                  Year Purchased: 1972

                  About the owner: I grew-up working the ranches of Big Sur. I had the privilege of working for Walter Trotter a mountain of a man and a legend in Big Sur. Over 40 years ago, my parents were brilliant to buy one of the best 20 acres on the whole coast. I've always enjoyed playing sports. Professionally I run a company called Leadership Resources, LLC we coach and consult helping businesses hire and work together more effectively. I'm a social psychologist by training and my wife is a clinical psychologist. Patricia has transitioned to become an incredible abstract expressionist painter with a beautiful studio in Carmel Valley Village. Our son Kodiak loves to play sports too. It has given me the opportunity to coach soccer, basketball, football and lacrosse. All of his activities keep us from spending too much time in Big Sur, so we decided to share our property with a lucky few.

                  Why the Owner Chose Big Sur:
                  Our family, led by my parents in 1972, have always loved and respected the incredible beauty and ruggedness of Big Sur. We sit on top of the ridge about 900 feet above Pfeiffer Beach. The road to our property is controlled by electronic gates. We have a gate by the entrance to Pheiffer Beach and a northern entrance just before The River Inn. Our view is one of the most magnificent views in the world. Our 20 acres includes a spectacular redwood grove and tunnels of wondrous oak trees. We are only about 50 minutes to Carmel and at the same time light years away from the hustle and bustle of normal life.
