Overlooking a forest of rare Monterey Pines and a half mile to the spectacular Pacific Ocean, this house is here for you to pause from whatever you do. Take a deep breath of clean fresh ocean air, listen to the sounds of the forest and let your mind wander. Think of it as a place for punctuation in your life, where fresh ideas, clear uncluttered thinking and laughter can come naturally. That is what this place is all about.
Deep, restful sleep has no price. And you will notice that we spared no expense on the beds, the most comfortable we could find. The separation of the rooms is also designed so you can sleep better, more restful here than anywhere else. Featuring 2 master suites, one with King Bed & 1 with Queen bed and adjoining bathrooms, in addition to a 3rd bedroom with a Queen Bed & full bath close by.
During the day relax in the comfortable living area which has panoramic views of the ocean and forest. Enjoy the ambiance & cozy warmth of a fire in our Avalon Stove style fireplace as you experience the peace & serenity our home brings you. If you don't want to completely disconnect, we have very high speed cable WiFi and everything you need to plug in when you feel like it and a desk with a view so you can use your computer to record your thoughts.
In front of you is a very old virgin forest that is teaming with wild life. There are ten redwoods on the property that are up to seventy five years old. You will probably see deer many times, wild turkey occasionally, quail, and the rare bob cat strolling through the area. Immediately in front is a family of highly territorial woodpeckers, blue Jays, Red Shouldered Hawks, Turkey Vultures and a pair of Golden Eagles.
At night, step out onto the deck. Look straight up on a clear night and see the Milky Way Galaxy and the stars brighter than you can remember. Listen closely and you will hear the seals barking on the beaches below. A few miles north on Highway 1 are nesting elephant seals on protected beaches that you can visit up close. Hearst Castle is only a few miles from here and you can view whale migration from tours out of Morro Bay.
Finally, the wine country out towards Paso Robles on Highway 46 is one of the best kept secrets in California. Here there is a collection of about 150 wine makers who have gone the independent route and still consider winemaking an art form. They pride themselves in producing the finest wines that can rival any in the world. If you like great wine please check out some of our favorite discoveries, Denner, Tablas Creek, Peachy Canyon, Moonstone Cellars, ZIN Alley, Whale Bone, Calcarious, Donati and Eros. Make yourself at home. Exhale and create the next chapter of your life.
