Overview

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

Mom. Wife. Lawyer. Entrepreneur. Mediator. Soccer Mom. Would-Be-Designer. Passionate about family, traveling, our vacation home in Paso, the town of Paso, wine, food, designing and tennis! 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.

Amazing Trip to Paso Robles

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough about this property and the owner. We had a girls trip for my birthday and Miwon was just outstanding and was able to assist us with any questions and recommendations for restaurants and wineries. Six of us are realtors with very discriminating tastes. We found this property to have any amenity you would ever imagine and the attention to detail and finishes are just exquisite. One night we had Chef Alex from Crush Catering prepare a dinner in the house which was to die for. The beds were some comfortable and furniture we never wanted to leave. This property sits high up on a hill overlooking the town of Paso. It is a short distance to downtown Paso and centrally located to all of the wineries. I can't wait to return again with my husband. Thank you Miwon for your hospitality!

Simply Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
Last month I proposed to my girlfriend of 2 1/2 years. When it's one of the most important days of your life, you want everything to be just right. We're both Sicilian foodies who love cheese, wine and the simple things in life, so I thought a little wine tasting getaway would be the perfect setting for our proposal.

With so many places you can go for a wine country weekend in California, I spent months combing the internet to figure out how to make it all come together. Needless to say, it was rather frustrating at first. Frequently asking myself, "Will she love this?", and constantly second guessing myself. Finding Miwon and Illumination Ridge changed my world!

Miwon was extremely sweet and took a good hour out of her Sunday to speak with me on the phone about the property, as well as all the surrounding wineries and restaurants. She ended up playing a huge role in helping me put the entire weekend together and create an amazing memory for my future wife and myself.

To say this property is beautiful would be like saying the sun is warm. The attention to detail is pronounced and there's a never-ending supply of ways to take your relaxation to the next level. Enjoy some outdoor games, grill up some grub or soak in the hot tub and watch the moonrise over the city. Me, I chose to propose to my girlfriend right by the fire pit. The property, like our weekend, was simply perfect! Illumination Ridge will forever be in our memories as one of the best experiences of our lives.

Thank you Miwon! We will be back soon...

Owner's Response: Dan, Thank you for such a thoughtful review. It was truly my pleasure helping you. We are big fans of the institution of marriage, and love the fact that we got to play a small role in shaping yours. I hope your fiancée knows how much time and effort you put into planning this special weekend. If this is any indication, you are going to make a champ of a hubby! When you come back to celebrate your 10th anniversary, the house is on us!

Perfection in Paso

  • 5 of 5
Illumination Ridge was an amazing experience. It not only housed but entertained part of a wedding party for a weekend and we couldn't have asked more. Great views, immaculate sleeping options, games, fire pit, spa, the list goes on. Wish we could have stayed longer. The owner was very accommodating as well. Would definitely return.

Every aspect of this home was well thought out by the owner. The house is gorgeous, both inside and out! The house is meticulous. A beautiful sanctuary after a day out in the town.
