The log home has long been cherished as an emblem of our country's humble beginnings. In the mid 1800's pioneers traveling west to California in search of a new beginning, set up homestead on a tract of wilderness land and hand crafted their homes from local trees. Since the late nineteenth century, a large number of celebrated architects have transformed the popular notion of the simple pioneer log cabin into supremely crafted works of art.
The Elfin Log Home combines the traditional architecture of the American log home with all of the amenities and luxury of a modern home. Nestled among the rolling coastal foothills of sunny Southern California, the home sparkles with splendor that a pioneer could only dream of and is truly fit for a king. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy a retreat from the everyday- to reinvigorate your body, reactivate your mind and refresh your soul in a unique location that is a world away, yet just minutes from the best that Southern California has to offer!
The home is situated high atop the hillside of a gated ten acre property with stunning panoramic views of the sprawling countryside spanning all the way west to the dark blue waters of the Pacific Ocean. Local amenities including a grocery store, salon, yoga studio, restaurants and wine bar are just 3 minutes away in the village of San Elijo. In addition, the world famous sandy beaches of Southern California are just 15-20 minutes away from this local gem!
Relax in the Jacuzzi while soaking up the intoxicating views of the surrounding countryside - enjoy a fine wine while watching the sunset from the deck - prepare a home-cooked meal featuring fresh, locally grown produce in the comfort of the fully equipped gourmet kitchen - wander amongst the bamboo and over 50 citrus and avocado trees producing a variety of organic fruit for you to enjoy - bask in the aura of the home’s traditional log styling and warm your heart by the radiant glow of the wood burning stove on a chilly evening. Prepare yourself to make the memories you will take with you forever!
