This 100+ acre nature preserve with white sand beach, redwood forest, and 360 degree views is where Big Sur architect Mickey Muennig chose to design his final residential masterpiece. Set within Deer Ridge by way of a sod roof that also provides insulation, Muennig created this luxurious off grid residence on a site with views all the way to San Luis Obispo and Santa Cruz counties. Radiant heat warms the huge concrete foundation which supports the massive north and south facing glass walls that bring the outside in. Exquisite wood craftmanship defines the 3 bdrms and 3 baths in the main house and the detached guest house which provide the base from which to explore the property's micro-climates, habitats, seasonal streams, miles of trails, and white sand beach that may only be reached from this property, or the sea. Just above the un-named beach, a potential building site sits within a natural amphitheater of land which just may be the most private oceanfront site on the entire coast.
