Overview

About the property

Unique 6-acre property with 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, within few minutes of downtown

This unique 6-acre property, set on top of a secluded bucolic ridge yet only a few minutes to downtown, is the perfect marriage of clean modern luxurious style with eclectic cool sensibilities. Come experience this slice of heaven.

Open the door to this stylish home and behold a chandelier of luminous handblown glass orbs illuminating over an open and airy entertainer's paradise home. A home renovated with sleek zinc counter tops and hip designer stones, balanced with touches of hand-stained wine bottle pallets from the Herman Story Winery and other unique reclaimed rustic wood.

Gather with your family or friends in the beautiful open living area: Lounge on the comfortable yet stylish oversized Restoration Hardware sofa while watching Direct TV on the big screen TV embedded in the lime stones over the fireplace; Hang out on sleek bar chairs next to the cool zinc counters in the open and fully stocked kitchen while you chat with the chef of your party, who might want to whip up a tasty morsel using the powerful 6-burner wolf range; Lounge at the oversized rustic wooden dining table built for 12; Grab a glass from the most beautiful bar you will encounter in Paso; Oh, and, unwind!

Choose your bedroom from two oversized master suites or a chic third bedroom, decorated with luxurious pillow-top designer beds and each with its own bathrooms. Check out the sleek bathrooms with cool tiles and rustic wood, stocked with plenty of fluffy white towels and upscale toiletries.

Take your glass of wine and stroll outside through any number of the french doors positioned throughout this home. Exhale and leave your city angst behind as you take in the breathtaking views of Paso Robles, views that include rolling hills with almond trees and peaks of vines on one side juxtaposed next to sweeping views of the city on another side. As the sun begins to set, you will be challenged to decide where you should sit to enjoy the awesome views of the bright city lights intermingled with the emerald greens of the rolling hills. Perhaps you will choose to lounge around the chic outdoor sofa, slip into a chair at the 12 ft. long teak outdoor dining table, grab an adirondack chair around the fire-pit, or stretch out under the massive oak tree in adirondack loungers, or stroll over to numerous secluded sitting areas located throughout the grounds.

Hard to leave such a fabulous property, right? No worries. Plenty to do right here. Turn up the grill on the gas BBQ or fire up some fragrant wood in the commercial-sized Santa Maria grill, throw on some grass-fed ribeye steaks and sausages from a local butcher for a mouth-watering dinner in true Paso Robles style. Want some activity? Play petanque or bocci ball in the ball court, throw some horse shoes, stroll the grounds, feed your inner child and swirl around with a hoola hoop, lounge in the Jacuzzi, then relax sitting around the fire pit while you contemplate the wineries to visit tomorrow.

Welcome to Illumination Ridge - a perfect marriage of outdoor and indoor living at its stylish best.

About Miwon Halt

Mom. Wife. Lawyer. Entrepreneur. Mediator. Soccer Mom. Would-Be-Designer. Passionate about family, traveling, our vacation home in Paso, the town of Paso, wine, food, designing and tennis! We live in Southern California, but fell in love with Paso Robles during our many trips up here wine tasting. We looked for the perfect location for over 2 years. It took us nearly a year to renovate every corner of this property to make it our own. We believe this property is the perfect blend of clean modern contemporary sensibilities balanced with cool eclectic sensibilities. We love this place; it is our slice of heaven. We now share it with you.

Miwon Halt purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why Miwon Halt chose Paso Robles

We are passionate about Paso Robles!

Paso is the fastest growing wine region in California, with over 200 wineries. Paso is regularly voted one of the best towns to move to, to visit, to live in, etc. Paso regularly makes top ten lists for having the happiest residents and great quality of life. Paso is also ideally situated: It's the midway point between Los Angeles and San Francisco; It's 20 minutes away from the beaches of Cambria and Morro Bay; It's only 45 miles to Hearst Castle. Paso is geographically beautiful: It is nestled in the rolling foothills of the Central Coast's Santa Lucia Mountains; Its landscape is dotted with majestic oak trees and untouched bucolic natural beauty; And, cows, horses and sheep roam the hills grazing on grass, the way Mother Nature intended things to be. Paso is also sophisticated. You will find numerous awesome restaurants, many of them equal to or better than what you'd expect to encounter in the big cities of Los Angeles or San Francisco. These are all the reasons why we initially loved visiting Paso. But those aren't the reasons why we decided to buy a house in Paso.

Here is what truly captured our hearts: Paso is authentic. Paso is the real deal. That nostalgic California - the one that people moved out West for way back when, in pursuit of the American Dream - the one that's really hard to find let alone dream about in Los Angeles, San Francisco, or even Napa - well, that California still exists, right here in Paso. As one young winemaker told us, Paso is a place where a person of modest means can come with nothing but hard labor, but with enough passion and hard work, you can build from ground up into something special. Paso is a special place where passion exists, hard work exists, helping each other exists. We hope you will come visit and experience this for yourself.

Wine Country Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We all loved our stay at Illumination Ridge. The house is beautifully designed with comfortable gathering spaces both inside and out. It's location is conveniently near main street and all the must see winerys. By far one of the best maintained properties I've ever rented. The design of the home, great essentials, and the view are all extraordinary. Miwon was a super responsive and a pleasure to work with. Fabulous in every way.

Great house inside and outside in the middle of wine country

  • 5 of 5

Two spacious master suites with wonderful views of the area.

Kitchen is made for people who love to cook and entertain.

Outdoor space is great for playing bocce ball under the lights at night, relaxing on the patio for pre-dinner cocktails, grill is very nice for cooking steaks and fish, and the hot tub under the stars over looking the valley is a great way to finish the day.

Perfect house for a wine country get away! We can't wait to come back!

Fabulous Ilumination Ridge

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely 4 night stay at Illumination Ridge. The home is very special, with a lot of thought and care with the furnishings and eye candy everywhere with books, a wall of glassware and especially the unique chandelier over the dining table. The outdoor amenities are incredible. We didn't have enough time to enjoy everything and would like to go back. We recommend this beautiful home highly but hope not too many discover it 😉?! Thank you Miwon and family for sharing with us.

Beautiful relaxing Illumination Ridge

  • 5 of 5

Illumination Ridge is Beautifully decorated inside and out. Very relaxing property and saw dear almost daily. Miwon, the owner, was so responsive and helpful and made our stay so enjoyable. Our only complaint is we were there only 4 nights and wanted more time at the house and in Paso Robles area. We would not hesitate to recommend this property.
