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/Netflix 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, play corn hole, 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 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.
What makes this House unique
Six acres of serene privacy, yet literally only half a mile to town. Stunning views of orchards and vines on one side, with city lights on another side. Ideal location with the best views in Paso - bar none! Beautifully remodeled with modern, luxury and cool rustic details. No expenses spared. Plenty of everything provided - free nespresso coffee pods, our own private label olive oil sample, bottle of quality Paso local wine, plenty of extra linens and towels. All toiletries provided, with hairdryers in each of the 3 bathrooms. Like staying at a luxury hotel, except you get your own fully stocked large kitchen and you can hang out with friends/family in all the beautiful common areas inside and outside.

We stayed over the holiday weekend celebrating my wife's birthday with a few other couples and we all had a fantastic weekend. The host, Miwon, was fabulous leading up to our stay with her recommendations of local wineries, restaurants, and activities to do in the area. The house was great for entertaining with our large party and had everything that we could have asked for. From the hot tub, to the bocce ball court, to the fire pit, to the large kitchen we were never in need. The décor was beautiful and the house was well thought out. Definitely a 5 star experience!
Don't Paso-ver this beautiful home!
We had a great time celebrating the new year at the house! We were a group of 6, and there was plenty of space for everyone. Cooking at home and playing bocce were the perfect ways to start and end days spent exploring local wineries (Niner) and coastal hikes (Morro Bay). We also loved sitting by the fire pit. We hope to return! Thank you.
WOW! The house is amazing. The view is gorgeous. The location is perfect. I can't say enough great things about the property. On top of that, owner Miwon, went above and beyond to accommodate my family and ensure a fun and memorable weekend.
For months, I planned a fun-filled weekend in Santa Barbara for my mom's birthday. But with the wildfires in Ventura and SB Counties, I scrapped those plans and left with just days to book a house and make new weekend plans. Miwon to the rescue! I was so lucky to find the house available with such short notice. With her help and recommendations, the weekend went super smoothly and was actually better than what we had planned in Santa Barbara.
Thanks, Miwon! You really salvaged the weekend and my mom had the best birthday weekend ever!
Thank you Miwon and family for your hospitality! Your home is beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the perfect location in Paso. This was perfect for three couples on a weekend get away! We would love to come back and stay here again!
Wine Country Heaven
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.
Beautiful home with a fantastic view!
The host was wonderful and the house was perfect for our family trip. The recommendations that were provided by the host were all spot on! We hope to stay here again in the future!
