EXPERIENCE PASO IN STYLE: PERFECT BLEND OF MODERN LUXURY AND COOL ECLECTIC VIBE

Paso Robles Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Unique 6-acre property with 3 bedrooms & 3 baths, within few minutes of downtown

This unique 6-acre property, set on top of a secluded bucolic ridge yet only a few minutes to downtown, is the perfect marriage of clean modern luxurious style with eclectic cool sensibilities. Come experience this slice of heaven.

Open the door to this stylish home and behold a chandelier of luminous handblown glass orbs illuminating over an open and airy entertainer's paradise home. A home renovated with sleek zinc counter tops and hip designer stones, balanced with touches of hand-stained wine bottle pallets from the Herman Story Winery and other unique reclaimed rustic wood.

Gather with your family or friends in the beautiful open living area: Lounge on the comfortable yet stylish oversized Restoration Hardware sofa while watching Direct TV on the big screen TV embedded in the lime stones over the fireplace; Hang out on sleek bar chairs next to the cool zinc counters in the open and fully stocked kitchen while you chat with the chef of your party, who might want to whip up a tasty morsel using the powerful 6-burner wolf range; Lounge at the oversized rustic wooden dining table built for 12; Grab a glass from the most beautiful bar you will encounter in Paso; Oh, and, unwind!

Choose your bedroom from two oversized master suites or a chic third bedroom, decorated with luxurious pillow-top designer beds and each with its own bathrooms. Check out the sleek bathrooms with cool tiles and rustic wood, stocked with plenty of fluffy white towels and upscale toiletries.

Take your glass of wine and stroll outside through any number of the french doors positioned throughout this home. Exhale and leave your city angst behind as you take in the breathtaking views of Paso Robles, views that include rolling hills with almond trees and peaks of vines on one side juxtaposed next to sweeping views of the city on another side. As the sun begins to set, you will be challenged to decide where you should sit to enjoy the awesome views of the bright city lights intermingled with the emerald greens of the rolling hills. Perhaps you will choose to lounge around the chic outdoor sofa, slip into a chair at the 12 ft. long teak outdoor dining table, grab an adirondack chair around the fire-pit, or stretch out under the massive oak tree in adirondack loungers, or stroll over to numerous secluded sitting areas located throughout the grounds.

Hard to leave such a fabulous property, right? No worries. Plenty to do right here. Turn up the grill on the gas BBQ or fire up some fragrant wood in the commercial-sized Santa Maria grill, throw on some grass-fed ribeye steaks and sausages from a local butcher for a mouth-watering dinner in true Paso Robles style. Want some activity? Play petanque or bocci ball in the ball court, throw some horse shoes, stroll the grounds, feed your inner child and swirl around with a hoola hoop, lounge in the Jacuzzi, then relax sitting around the fire pit while you contemplate the wineries to visit tomorrow.

Welcome to Illumination Ridge - a perfect marriage of outdoor and indoor living at its stylish best.

About Miwon Halt

We live in Southern California, but fell in love with Paso Robles during our many trips up here wine tasting. We looked for the perfect location for over 2 years. It took us nearly a year to renovate every corner of this property to make it our own. We believe this property is the perfect blend of clean modern contemporary sensibilities balanced with cool eclectic sensibilities. We love this place; it is our slice of heaven. We now share it with you.

Miwon Halt purchased this chateau / country house in 2013

Why Miwon Halt chose Paso Robles

We are passionate about Paso Robles!

Paso is the fastest growing wine region in California, with over 200 wineries. Paso is regularly voted one of the best towns to move to, to visit, to live in, etc. Paso regularly makes top ten lists for having the happiest residents and great quality of life. Paso is also ideally situated: It's the midway point between Los Angeles and San Francisco; It's 20 minutes away from the beaches of Cambria and Morro Bay; It's only 45 miles to Hearst Castle. Paso is geographically beautiful: It is nestled in the rolling foothills of the Central Coast's Santa Lucia Mountains; Its landscape is dotted with majestic oak trees and untouched bucolic natural beauty; And, cows, horses and sheep roam the hills grazing on grass, the way Mother Nature intended things to be. Paso is also sophisticated. You will find numerous awesome restaurants, many of them equal to or better than what you'd expect to encounter in the big cities of Los Angeles or San Francisco. These are all the reasons why we initially loved visiting Paso. But those aren't the reasons why we decided to buy a house in Paso.

Here is what truly captured our hearts: Paso is authentic. Paso is the real deal. That nostalgic California - the one that people moved out West for way back when, in pursuit of the American Dream - the one that's really hard to find let alone dream about in Los Angeles, San Francisco, or even Napa - well, that California still exists, right here in Paso. As one young winemaker told us, Paso is a place where a person of modest means can come with nothing but hard labor, but with enough passion and hard work, you can build from ground up into something special. Paso is a special place where passion exists, hard work exists, helping each other exists. We hope you will come visit and experience this for yourself.

From the moment we booked our family vacation I knew our time spent at Illumination Ridge would be fantastic. The home owner Miwon was a pleasure to work with and a wealth of knowledge. The home was more than we expected when we arrived. It was very close to downtown Paso Robles but far enough to feel like you had total privacy.

We spent my mom's 60th birthday here and would love to go back for more celebrations in the future.

Well appointed, comfortable home with beautiful veiws

  • 5 of 5
It was an absolute pleasure to stay at Illumination Ridge! We celebrated my husband's 40th birthday with two other couples and kids. The kitchen was well-stocked and we loved cooking tri-tip on the Santa Maria grill while enjoying the unbelievable sunset. The house was very clean (which is super important to me) and very comfortable. You can tell there was a lot of thought that went into the creation and layout of this home. Miwon is an amazing host who can give you the low-down on all the best restaurants, wineries and butchers in town. It was truly one of the best house rentals we've had and we've done a lot!

I should also note: one of our guests has a prosthetic leg and he was able to navigate this property very well. There is a hill to get into the gate, but after that it is quite accessible.

Thanks again Miwon, can't wait to come up again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Emily! Your passion for Paso, our property and good food and wine made it real easy for me to help you! We really did put a lot of thought and energy into designing and decorating this home - thank you for your kind words. We truly hope to see you back and, hopefully, we will have a chance to share a bottle of vino together:)

LOVED staying here!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for a yearly trip with our group of college girlfriends and this was the perfect house to have it in. We loved using all the accommodations including the outdoor firepit, large dining tables outside and inside, the air conditioning (it was a really really hot weekend so this saved us!), the bocce court, the jacuzzi, and the big kitchen!! We cooked two nights and all of the breakfasts in the house and went out to dinner in town one night. The rooms were really spacious with really comfy beds and it was nice to have several bathrooms for so many of us to shower and get ready in at one time. Another highlight of the property was the amazing view of Paso. The house could not have been set more perfectly on the hill. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking for an accommodation of this size in Paso. We had a couple minor hiccups while we were there and the owner was really great with responding to texts and helping us figure things out. She was really kind and really easy to work with.

Owner's Response: We really tried to make this home a unique get-away retreat where you can escape from the stresses of work and/or city life, and truly slow down, exhale, relax with loved ones, and connect with the magical vibes of this home and Paso. So glad you and your friends were able to connect and enjoy this home and Paso. Hope to see you return next year:)

Fun, wine and petanque!

  • 5 of 5
This home was the perfect home base for a lovely weekend in Paso. We had so much fun playing, laughing, cooking and wine tasting. It was fabulous to come home after a day of wine tasting to this beautifully designed home and cook a gourmet dinner, play petanque or sit by the fire pit watching the glimmering lights of Paso. Thank you for such a warm and inviting home!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! Your weekend sounds a lot like ours in Paso - fun wine tasting during the day, then a relaxing second half of the day hanging out at the property, grilling something juicy on the BBQ, playing a little petanque, lounging around the fire pit, soaking in the jacuzzi - all while taking in the breathtaking views of Paso. Hope to see you back next year!

Could not have been better!

  • 5 of 5
Stayed here on Memorial Day weekend. Two families, each with two kids, ...and two birthdays to celebrate

The house was terrific. Super clean. Great indoor, outdoor flow (easy to keep an eye on the kids while they played outside). ...the views were fantastic, and were all bocce ball fans now

The owner was so, so nice. She was uber responsive to all of our needs.

We hope to come back again. Thank Goodness for Paso!

Giving owner 5 stars for passion for home and area

  • 5 of 5
I know that it is unusual to write a review prior to staying at the home, but if the level of communication and friendliness offered by the owner prior to booking the home for an extended trip to the central coast is indicative of the satisfaction of our trip-- we are in for an amazing 11 days! The owner is just as passionate about the area and the home on the phone as you can read in the write up on the rental ad. She is very helpful on answering any questions and is responsive including in offering suggestions on how to make the most of your trip especially with children. We are looking forward to our visit to this lovely home and expect it to be as delightful as the pictures show and the hostess is to potential guests.

Owner's Response: What a lovely and unexpectedly surprising review. Thank you! If only we could always be so lucky to have such wonderful guests. We truly love our second home, and are passionate about Paso. We want to be good ambassadors for both. We trust and hope you will have a lovely vacation, and look forward to helping you!
