Cambria house description

People often say 'This is my favorite house in Cambria!'

Crashing waves, warm sunny patios overlooking the ocean and a private courtyard with outdoor fireplace make this a 'dream house' come true!

Casa Suena was built in 2000, inspired by the old Julia Morgan-designed homes in San Simeon, which were built in the 1920s for a few key Hearst Castle employees .

Casa Suena is 2400 sq ft, covering three lots in a traditional Spanish style, built around an interior courtyard which includes an outdoor fireplace and fountain. The master suite is at one end of the house, with a large walk-in closet. Two more bedrooms are at the other end, sharing the second bathroom. A powder room is adjacent to the kitchen. There are three showers; an extra large one in the master bathroom, a shower/tub in the second bathroom, and a hot water shower outside, perfect for washing off sand and salt water after a beach adventure.

One bedroom is equipped with a large screen TV with Netflix, cable, and other online offerings. (wifi). Toys include legos, blocks, books and games, a dollhouse, and stuffed animals...plenty for kids of all ages.

The kitchen is large with lots of dishes and utensils and good quality stainless steel pots and pans. It opens to the courtyard for BBQs and evening wine and s-mores while gathered around the outdoor fireplace. (firewood included)

The living room has a wood fireplace as well, and opens up to a dining room which has a better view than any restaurant in Cambria. (It is a joy to cook in the kitchen at Casa Suena with fresh local food from Cambria's fabulous Farmer's Market!)

The courtyard is completely enclosed, with a passage into the small fenced side yard, which makes it ideal for a well behaved dog.

The neighborhood is friendly and quiet; surrounded by open space and within walking distance of the Fiscalini Ranch preserve which has hiking and biking trails for all levels of fitness. Lots of wildlife, too: deer, pelicans, sea otters (and surfers) in the cove, dolphins and whales (and kayaks) spotted a little further out. Just a few steps lead you to the tide pools, where you can explore the small sea life for hours.

Casa Suena is a perfect retreat for you to settle into, or as a wonderful place to come home to after a day of exploring the Central Coast's beaches, wineries, and culture.

          Location

          Cambria is nestled in a pine forest at the south end of the Big Sur Coast. Our area offers so much! The ocean, the forest, Hearst Castle...a short drive over the hills takes you into the acclaimed Paso Robles wine country, small western flavored towns and more excellent restaurants. Down the coast you will find more small beach communities- each with a distinct personality. About 30 minutes away is San Luis Obispo, home to a beautiful mission surrounded by a vibrant city, and California Polytecnic State University.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2000

          About the owner: We live in San Luis Obispo, and love Cambria and Casa Suena. Our other love is Italy, and we travel there as much as possible, sometimes for work, sometimes just for fun! Our children are mostly grown and they enjoyed an adventurous childhood in Casa Suena.

          Why the Owner Chose Cambria:
          We never take for granted the natural beauty of this particular spot on the California coast, with the coastal pine trees and rugged coastline Cambria is such an eclectic community with wonderful restaurants and hidden gems- which we will gladly share with you!

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Casa Suena has warmth and personality. It was lovingly built to reflect the homes of the 1920s- in quality and materials: plaster, ceramic tiles, hardwood floors and copper gutters. The vintage decor is colorful and a bit whimsical. The oceanfront patios provide many places to relax and enjoy the experience of living right on the bluff...stunning views, crashing waves, salt spray. This particular oceanfront location is sheltered from the wind, making it so pleasant to sit outside and read, watch the surfers, enjoy morning coffee, a leisurely lunch or a glass of wine... lots of oceanfront properties in Cambria are unfortunately windy. The neighborhood is friendly and people love to go for walks! If you want to mingle with others, just head out the gate from the courtyard and join the morning parade of friendly people getting some exercise. If you are looking for privacy, however, you can relax in the courtyard and the oceanfront back yard.
