About Highway 1

TAKTSANG BIG SUR is a temple of a home at the very epicenter of the temple of nature that is Big Sur. Originally inspired by a monastery high in the Himalayas of Bhutan, and later extensively remodeled by Big Sur architect Mickey Muennig, this home of glass, stone, wood and concrete on 9.5 acres is perfectly sited for continuous jaw dropping views up and down Big Sur's most dramatic and beautiful stretch of coastline. Anchored by massive concrete angled pillars rising from the radiant heated floor between them, the great room features a huge stone fireplace with open loft that feels as much a piece of sculpture as it is a geo-technical marvel. Star gaze from bed through the glass ceiling and wake up to the breathing of whales, or watch condors soar by your windows as you bathe in pure spring water. This is living on another level, not unlike the flat upper garden and amphitheater parcel, with it's plans for a potential second residence. VIDEO and more information at TaktsangBigSur.com.
