"AN ENGINEERING AND ARCHITECTURAL FEAT "
Just down the coast off Highway 1, you'll find one of the secret architectural gems of Big Sur. Nothing like this exists. Featured in numerous publications over the years, this six-sided house was built in the midst of the Garrapatos redwood forest under strict preservation strategies. Not a single tree was taken down during the five year construction period as they harvested downed ancient redwoods on the property for its construction. And two miles of trails were also built into the adjacent mountainside including a short one from the garage to the house with a drawbridge over the year-round creek, which is an ideal habitat for rainbow trout. Not to mention, a natural spring supplies the freshest of water to the property. This home is the ultimate private, creekside cabin. An engineering and architectural feat that is to be truly appreciated by those who revel in the natural beauty of the Big Sur forest.
