Jewel Box in the Clouds

Built into the hillside this 1900 sq ft residence on 40 acres has been featured in Dwell Magazine and the New York Times. When you arrive you will see that the meadow extends over the top of the house to create an insulating roof of native grasses while glass walls allow for unobstructed views of the Pacific.

Casa Lauria, as it is known was designed by the same architect as the famed Nepenthe. A rustic modern retreat that lies in the center of Big Sur with stunning views of Big Sur Valley and Andrew Molera State Park through walls of windows. This 4bd/2ba 3000 square foot property on over 5 acres is very private and yet enhanced by the close proximity to Pfeiffer, Molera, beaches, redwoods, the Big Sur river and Post Ranch Inn.

This calming retreat situated along the rugged Big Sur ridge, gives one the feeling of living in a glass campsite on the cusp of another world. Taken from an HGTV interview, the owner describes it as the ultimate fantasy house, perfect for a therapeutic weekend getaway.
