Property description

Watching the sunset over the Pacific Ocean, marveling at the beauty and craftsmanship of this handsome home, the perfect proportions of the architecture, the superb choice of wood and appointments, the crafted and stylized door handles and yacht quality cabinetry brings a sense of joy, serenity and knowing that people who really care built this home.

Nestled between two canyons yet within walking distance of the historic Highlands Inn with its famous five star Edge Restaurant and renowned Point Lobos State Park, the Retreat is a perfect get-away retreat for reflection and remembering what matters in life; a great place for reunions, family gatherings, joyous reconnections; a serene place for relieving the stress of life through immersion in the wondrous presence of nature; a wonderful setting for small business conferences or group dialogue. Awake in the midst of a Monterey Pine Forest to birdsong and repose at night to the crashing sound of waves and the sea lions barking in the distance.

Enjoy a card game with friends by the fire or a glass of wine while admiring Bird Rock of Point Lobos State Park from the den. Indulge yourself in the relaxing warmth of the hot tub or renew your spirit in the upstairs sauna. Revel in the true pleasure of being alive and experiencing the love of God through his most beautiful creations.

This house was not just built, it was artfully molded throughout. The front door is an artistic master piece, a stunning large block of redwood with a door handle crafted into a beautiful curve much like a whale’s tale. The cabinetry is exquisite - made from exotic woods including mahogany, cherry, Alaskan cedar and Pacific Coast redwood. Each room is a unique statement of appreciation and gratitude for nature’s beauty - including fine artwork, hand painted sinks, hardwood floors, and hand crafted furniture.

The immense master suite has its own study/ exercise room where you can view the Pacific while cycling on the exercise bike or work on your laptop while enjoying the view of Point Lobos. Designed by respected local architect Peter Davis, it is an example of enduringly beautiful architectural style that knows no era.

Spacious and clean, this 4000 square ft. house provides plenty of quiet private space as well as grand joining spaces. It is large enough to find a quiet corner for reading or meditating and has ample together spaces for playing board games, chatting over the day's visit to local sites or relaxing in front of a movie.

The inviting kitchen with adjoining greenhouse breakfast nook is alive with morning sun and a fun space for group cooking and cheer. In the great room, the formal walnut hand crafted dining table can seat up to twelve for large dinner gatherings in the warmth of the fire place. The large windows throughout bring nature inside, with magnificent scenic views that create the feeling that nature outside and inside are integrated. Two decks provide sweeping ocean views while the third overlooks the large flagstone patio.

Pacific View Retreat sleeps twelve in three kings, two queens and two twin beds. Two sleeper sofas (one king and one queen) can accomodate another four guests.

Pacific View Retreat is ideal for reunions, special birthdays and anniversaries, wedding groups,and corporate retreats. Here are the comments from some recent guests:

'We came to celebrate a birthday and an engagement in this amazing house. The natural wood and decor give the house a warm and inviting feel Each room offers a unique gift for the mind and the soul. The artfully placed windows bring the outdoors to your fingertips. Each one has a breathtaking view of the bay, the canyon, or the enhanced natural landscaping surrounding the home. This was a great place for our family to celebrate.'
