Property Description

Designed by renowned Big Sur architect Mickey Muennig, this stunning organic architecture complements one of the most beautiful landscapes on earth. Muennig’s work is “natural and unpretentious “  never trying to compete with the breathtaking beauty of Big Sur’s Santa Lucia Mountains or the rugged Pacific coastline. One of his best examples is the world-famous Post Ranch Inn. In Mickey Muennig’s words, “When you work naturally and consult nature, every design is individual.”

Located on 5 acres on Big Sur’s gated Pfeiffer Ridge, this Mediterranean-styled home is designed with three levels stepping down from the entrance connected by a curving staircase. Passive solar heating was incorporated into the design allowing stored heat to rise, with cooler air in the winter falling down the staircase. With the descending stairways and sweeping arches, the home is reminiscent of a Greek landscape.

This indoor-outdoor home offers three bedrooms each with exceptional views and private adjoining patios. The spacious kitchen opens to outdoor dining on a view-swept patio terrace.

The living room with fireplace captures views of both mountains and ocean coastline. Orchards and lush gardens surround the residence and provide farm-to-table delights.

A modern detached studio provides quiet and private space for your artistic or writing pursuits. The offering also includes plans and permits for a detached guest house. A very rare opportunity to own a “Mickey” in Big Sur, a place apart where time runs at its own pace.
