Carved into the hillside of a 3-acre bluff sits a visually arresting mid-century modern residence. Designed with an asymmetrical floor plan by noted Southern California architect Paul Tay, a combination of floor-to-ceiling and triangular clerestory windows create soaring interior spaces with a strong connection to the outdoors. Throughout exposed beams frame arresting views, while walnut cabinetry warms the interior spaces. The primary suite features a fireplace and direct access to a beautiful deck. On the opposite end of the house lies the second bedroom, artist studio and bath. All rooms have stunning views. An interior courtyard off the kitchen/dining area offers a perfect outdoor dining area sheltered from the ocean breezes. A shared, deeded beach access from this oceanfront home is included.
From this bluff-top aerie, you can watch cormorants nest, red tail hawks fly, birds hover and seals frolic in the surf below. Poet Rainer Maria Rilke lyrically captured how this setting will transform you: “…I still don’t know if I am a falcon, or a storm, or a great song.”
With the ocean as your backdrop, all creative work—painting, writing, making music, cabinetry, gardening, and cooking for your friends—will be inspired and lifted here. The sea is constantly changing. Here, in this place, you cannot live shallowly. You will know the storms and the wind, and you will see the double rainbows that follow.
