Perched on top of a coast bluff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the property was developed as a place of respite from busy lives, a soulful family retreat to regroup and become atuned to the dynamic Big Sur coast. The main house is nestled between a Cypress grove and the rugged coastal edge, providing exhilarating views of the ever-changing sea. Taking cues from the deeply cut coves that flank the property, the upper green steps back into the hillside, creating a natural amphitheater for lawn play and larger events. Below, a long stone wall provides a visual datum and level plinth for the home to sit, while emphasizing the fractured edge of the bluff.
