About the Property

3700 sq ft. home -7 bedrooms, 3 full baths (1 with whirlpool bathtub)

The floor plan is simple and open, sunlight animates the interior and accentuates its openness, blurring the distinction between inside and out. Large expansive windows and glass doors give this home a feeling of abundance, allowing enormous amounts of natural light to shine through.

Get in touch with nature by letting the outside into the house through breathtaking ocean and mountain views, sunlight and wide-open windows and doorways that let fresh air rush in. This house boasts covered patios, courtyards, and roof decks making the indoor-outdoor transition perfect for casual living. The 8-foot tall, all glass, French doors expand the main living space out to the sunny east-facing back terrace. Flowering rose vines spilling across the yard to the outdoor fireplace enables a living room without roof or walls.

Though the gourmet kitchen is well suited to cooking, its finely crafted cabinetry creates the perfect setting for lively conversation. When tired, retire to one of the 6 gently-colored bedrooms on the main floor and retreat from a noisy world.


Walk up the open staircase, brightly lit from the glass doors above, and discover not only a roof deck with ocean views, but a stupendous separate living space overflowing with light and the sounds and smells of the ocean in front.

A generous master suite puts some space between the parent’s quarters and the children’s (or another couple’s). Lie in bed and watch as the mountains to the south change color with the setting sun or watch the sun rise to the east over the back bay.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Dawn Stephens (on the left) was born in Burbank, California, the heart of the San Fernando Valley. Nature outings for the city dwelling family were their weekend camping trips to the beach until they purchased a 10 acre mountain ranch when Dawn was in the 5th grade. “I always loved the beach but when we bought the ranch, I fell in love with the mountains too.' Now, I have finally have both. Dawn spent the next 20 years off and on in school culminating in a PhD from UC Berkeley in Sport Psychology which led her to an academic career as a professor at the University of Iowa. After 13 wonderful years of teaching, research and running a doctoral program, Dawn returned to the Pacific Ocean on a spring break trip to Baja California, Mexico and fell in love with the area. Four months later she purchased a small beach house where she retired a year and a half later. Her aging parents joined her south of the border to live out their days gazing out into the waves. Tina Jo (on right) was born and raised in Chicago Illinois. She grew up in a traditional Italian family in a close knit neighborhood where everyone kept an eye on everyone else’s kids and the children ran freely throughout the neighborhood. Tina Jo’s childhood home was surrounded by her mother’s prized rose bushes with a huge organic vegetable garden taking up half the family’s backyard. Like most Italian households there was always a pot of gravy (that’s what ‘real’ Italians called tomato sauce according to her Mom) or soup on the stove for the many visitors that would pass through. The kitchen was the center of everything of family life in our house! Growing up in the kitchen, it’s no wonder that today Tina Jo is a highly respected Gourmet Raw Vegan Chef, Author, Speaker and Coach. She holds a certification in Plant-based Nutrition from Cornell University and is a graduate of the renowned Living Light Culinary Institute.
