About 55700 Highway 1

This oceanside sanctuary is set on a private forested promontory, within walking distance of the renowned Esalen Institute and countless hiking trails. Designed by architects Francis Palms and Mickey Muennig, this house and cottage embody the serenity of Big Sur. With panoramic 180° views, the 3 bdrm / 2.5 bath main house is two stories, with wood burning fireplaces on both floors. The upstairs cupolaed living room has walls of windows and a wraparound deck, positioned to take in the sunsets & north views of the coast, right up to Pfeiffer Point. The open kitchen leads to a second deck that looks over a lily pond with ocean and south views. The master bath has radiant heated marble floors and a large tub and opens to a secret garden. Next to it is a study/kid's room and a 1/2 bath, and a traditional Japanese room, which looks upon it's own garden with Bodhi tree. A spacious Meunnig-designed downstairs office looks out to the gardens and ocean, flanked on one side by a bdrm & full bath; the other side, bedroom/media room, both with separate entrances. This newly landscaped property has gardens and paths meandering over 5 acres.The nearby cottage has a deck and endless pool and is used as an office/guest room. This is the rarest of homes that represent the spirit of Big Sur.
