Casa Lauria, or the ‘House of Bay Laurel’, is an architectural gem nestled in Big Sur that offers a rare opportunity to own a piece of history. The home was designed by Rowan Maiden, a student of the legendary Frank Lloyd Wright, who is also known for designing Big Sur’s famous Nepenthe. The house was built in the 1960s by the renowned builders Frank and Walter Trotter and boasts of an open beamed cantilevered roof, massive exposed redwood joists, and numerous windows that offer breathtaking views of the Big Sur River valley and mountains.
This spacious house is in Big Sur, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an additional large creative space that opens to the property’s Mediterranean-inspired gardens. The outdoor areas are abundant, with terraces, decks, and patios providing multiple options for outdoor living. The property also has a hot tub and a claw foot tub, perfect for relaxing and enjoying the stunning views.
Located up its private road on Apple Pie Ridge, the house enjoys deep privacy while being minutes away from Highway 1 and Big Sur’s restaurants, resorts, and hiking trails. There is also an upper private flat spot with additional views that offers more Big Sur living potential, accessible via a path leading from the house. The path south leads into the redwoods, where a year-round stream and freshwater spring can be found.
Casa Lauria is truly a unique and mesmerizing property that embodies the spirit of Big Sur, offering a perfect blend of privacy, luxury, and natural beauty.
