An Afternoon in Big Sur with Bernardus and Good Friends

We drove down to Big Sur to enjoy a glass of Bernardus Pinot, discuss marketing with our clients, and show the listing to a few fellow agents. The weather was beautiful, and the house showed wonderfully.

The Story Behind 59755 Garrapatos

Rob Carver is the owner of this property. He is a renowned architect who loves contemporary and has designed some outstanding homes in our area. In the 1980’s, Rob designed an exceptional modern home on a beautiful building site above Garrapatos creek in the Palo Colorado area. The location is very tranquil, and when you arrive you are immediately greeted with an inevitable feeling of relaxation.

Rob built this house slowly, and designed it with unique features to Big Sur such as a 3 car garage with a large studio above it, which has served as Rob’s office and personal art studio. There’s also a cabin at the upper end of the property, so it’s really quite a compound in the Big Sur redwoods. The drive from Carmel is just 10 miles to Palo Colorado road, and another couple of miles up to the residence, so the location is very convenient for those looking to live remotely, yet still have quick access to Carmel.
