Property description

Welcome to Big Sur, the most beautiful place in the world
Big Sur Stone House is a fully sustainable ocean side home on the unspoiled Big Sur coast 62 miles south of Monterey, California. The gardens and grounds create a completely private and secure enclave above the Pacific Coast Highway. Sole access to the property is by private gated road. The forty-acre site occupies the center of a magnificent wide marine terrace with uninterrupted views of the central Pacific coast to each far horizon and is surrounded by the protected lands of the Los Padres National Forest.
You can hear the waves on the shore from the Master Bedroom and watch the surf from every room in the house.
The off-grid, two-bedroom stone-built home was designed by an architect who specialized in sustainable architecture for himself and his family. The house is built in two closely connected but separate wings for the maximum amount of quiet and privacy. Both wings have full direct views of the ocean. The Cottage Wing includes the kitchen, dining area, laundry, bedroom and full bath. The Studio Wing includes a large library and media room with a half bath, and the adjacent Master Bedroom and Master Bath with single spa tub.
A separate stone pavilion west of the Master Bedroom with a magnificent view of the ocean waves can be used for a private retreat or a larger indoor dining space for events. The grounds include a complete organic garden and orchard, satellite communication link, and fish ponds.
The house complex has a fully stocked library, including a complete collection of music CDs, phonograph records of many genres, an extensive DVD film collection, and a satellite dish for internet connection. The house has radiant floor heating throughout with tile and maple floors. The bathrooms and kitchen are served by both conventional and reverse osmosis water systems and have granite and onyx counter-tops. Hiking trails for the Los Padres National Forest begin at the entrance to the private driveway. The undeveloped beaches and coastal meadow of Pacific Valley below the house is an easy walk to the beach with a picnic lunch and a fine bottle of Pinot Noir. A popular public surfing beach, San Dollar State Beach, is 1.6 miles south of Big Sur Stone House and can be reached by walking, biking, or by car. Para-gliding the ocean thermals above the property is also a popular local sport.
Big Sur Stone House is 31 miles from the small shops and stores of Big Sur, the Post Ranch Inn, the Ventana Inn and Spa, and Nepenthe Restaurant. The house is 40 miles north from Cambria, California. It is approximately one and one half hours from Paso Robles Wine country (29.6 miles) ; three and half hours north of Santa Barbara (179 miles), and approximately four and a half hours north of Los Angeles (273 miles). Please e-mail or call for any questions.
Please, no agents. If you wish to book, please contact us directly. Having someone else act as your agent will often only add a layer of complication, delay, and expense to you. Because of the timely nature of booking a vacation rental several days of relaying communications back and forth between parties will raise the likelihood that the house would be booked by others not so encumbered.
