Big Sur house description

In the heart of the Big Sur Coast at 1800 feet above sea level overlooking the mighty Pacific, you will find a nest of luxury in the wild..A magical place combining luxury, privacy and peace in the Heaven that is Big Sur.
The house is a new, custom, hand built 'green' house with breathtaking views of the sea and mountains. See the ever changing light, sun and moon sets you will never forget and, on occasion, a carpet of fog you could step out upon! Watch the whales spout and breach below and the Condors,Hawks and Eagles circling at eye level. Gaze at the stars reaching down to the horizon at your feet. All this from the comfort of a chair on the porch, on yoga deck or soaking in a 6' clawfoot tub.
Step inside to a spacious living room featuring a Wood burning stove.Full gourmet kitchen and gracious dining area. Beautiful huge Master Bedroom (cal King) with en suite bathroom replete with bidet. Two guest bedrooms (Queens) all with high ceilings and spectacular ocean views.Radiant heat and ceiling fans throughout.
Situated between Esalen (8 miles) to the South and Nepenthe, Post Ranch and Ventana (8 miles) to the North. We are up a 2.5 mile rugged, steep and magical road and highly recommend a four wheel drive vehicle.
