Backed into the hip of Clear Ridge like a stubborn Badger insisting on a southern exposure and an ocean view; stands the house at 'On a Clear Ridge'. The sod roof renders an undisturbed profile when viewed from the north. At the south elevation a series of glass fronted rooms and redwood decks stretches from east to west and gathers in the southern sun.
All rooms enjoy views and perspectives unique to this property. A Dining Room sits apart and a 270° view insures a sunrise to sunset and mountain to ocean panorama. The fully appointed kitchen is arranged around a central island and includes a breakfast bar. Cooking is with gas.
An open, spacious living room is still 'cozy' thanks to a fireplace flanked by generous fully upholstered built-in Bancos. A house built into a ridge where every room has a view necessitates a long hallway.
This connecting element and its sky lighting allows generous storage to one side and access to 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a lounge area and office with desk with internet access. Included with these is the Master Bedroom with a writing desk, built-in reading seat, and a skylight overhead for star gazing at night. The Master Bath allows indoor or outdoor showering.
A 2 car garage insures protected entry and provides access to the kitchen thru a double pantry. The washer and dryer and dry firewood are located here as well.
The southern exposed exterior is graced by redwood decks and stone terraces punctuated by a naturally fragrant herbal landscape. Sunbathing here is healing and private.
You are never out of view of the ocean and a 10 minute walk puts your toes in the sands of Pfeiffer Beach.
Check in time is 4 pm and check out is 11 am.
The entire Big Sur coast is considered 'must see'. If you never left the comfort of your car, you would be forever impressed by the extraordinary views. However, this stunning interface of land and sea is best experienced by the total immersion of walking, hiking, surfing, diving, or simply shelling along the wild beaches.
After sunset, as stars gather above, you may choose to dine on your own terrace or at the Post Ranch Inn, Ventana Inn, the Big Sur Bakery, Deetjen's or Nepenthe. As the moon settles on the sea and the quiet of the Big Sur night surrounds you, let your soul slip silently into a true, deep sleep.
