Big Sur Stone House is a fully sustainable ocean view home in the center of a wide marine terrace with uninterrupted views of the Pacific coast to each far horizon. One can hear the waves and watch the surf from seven rooms of the house. The gardens and grounds of the forty acre property adjoining the protected lands of the Los Padres National Forest create a completely secure enclave above the Pacific Coast Highway. Sole access is by private gated road. Guests at the house often say that this is the most beautiful spot they have ever found in round the world travels.. The off-grid, three-bedroom stone-built home was designed by an architect who specializes in sustainable architecture. The house is built in three closely connected but separate wings for the maximum amount of quiet and privacy, each with full direct views of the ocean. The Cottage Wing includes the kitchen, dining area, laundry, bedroom and full bath. The Studio Wing includes a large library and media room with a half bath; the adjacent Master Bedroom and Master Bath has single spa tub. A few feet away wholly separate stone walled Sunset Room has a magnificent view of the ocean waves and the moon and stars at night from the queen bed. There are also ocean views from the Sunset room bath and shower. The house complex has a fully stocked library, including a complete collection of music CDs, an extensive DVD film collection. The house has wireless WIFI and HDTV with full DirecTV premium satellite service. The house has radiant floor heating throughout with tile and maple floors. The bathrooms and kitchen are served by both conventional and reverse osmosis water systems and have granite and onyx counter-tops. Hiking trails for the Los Padres National Forest begin at the entrance to the private driveway. The undeveloped beaches and coastal meadow of Pacific Valley below the house is an easy walk to the beach with a picnic lunch and a fine bottle of Pinot Noir. A popular public surfing beach, San Dollar State Beach, is 1.3 miles south of Big Sur Stone House and can be reached by biking or by car. Para-gliding the ocean thermals above the property is also a popular local sport. Big Sur Stone House is 31 miles from the small shops and stores of Big Sur, the Post Ranch Inn, the Ventana Inn and Spa, and Nepenthe Restaurant. The house is 40 miles north from Cambria, California. It is approximately one and one half hours from Paso Robles Wine country (29.6 miles); three and half hours north of Santa Barbara (179 miles), and approximately four and a half hours north of Los Angeles (273 miles).
“I’ve stayed at close to 30 different Airbnb’s since 2015, and none have been as special as Big Sur Stone House. The house and location are beyond amazing. The property is very private, with views of the ocean from every part of the house. It’s right off of Highway 1, but you can’t really see or hear cars, just the sound of waves, and uninterrupted view of the Pacific. We felt like the only people around for miles. The house had everything we needed, and Ana would help in any way to make your stay perfect. We did not want to leave the house once there. We stocked up on groceries before arrival, and used the well-equipped kitchen a lot. There are parks nearby, but there are trails to the water and up the mountain right from the property. I know we will be back, we miss it already, and Ana is a sweetheart.”
This home is located in the heart of Big Sur on a family ranch, a short drive from Pfeiffer Beach. You can either walk to the Big Sur Bakery, take a short drive to Post Ranch, or cook your meals in the modern open-concept kitchen. The property sits 1,000 feet above the ocean where the Pacific meets the mountains. Watch condors and hawks sweep the sky, the fog curl around the coast, and the sun set on the sea.
“The house and land are even more spectacular than the listing would lead you to believe. Situated right in the middle of Big Sur - just between Pfeiffer Beach and Post Ranch Inn, the house is a tranquil modern oasis perched on a remote hilltop, hidden down a long winding private road through cliff side cow pastures, nestled within a citrus and herb filled garden, with views of the Pacific Ocean on the horizon. Deer and hummingbirds are frequent and friendly visitors. The house itself is stylishly appointed, with comfortable bedding and inviting books to lounge. The kitchen is well equipped for even the most ambitious meal prep. And Kira is a kind, welcoming and attentive host. She is quick to respond to questions and very accommodating. I hope to return again very soon.”
