Breathe deeply and relax as you enter the grounds of this artistically crafted private ocean-view retreat on 15+ acres in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Unwind in the gardens that evoke the rocky farmlands of France and Italy. Take in the property and meander down the valley trail through your own private woodland forest.

The main residence of the designer/builders is a passive solar straw-bale house with thick walls, cement floors and naturally pigmented earth and lime plasters. The interior environment has been artfully created to reflect light off dense shapes and create a fluent grace that draws you in.

The serene 2 bedroom, 2 bath house enjoys a multitude of riches: radiant heat, high-quality fixtures and hardware, energy-efficient appliances, Loewen wood windows and doors, and sustainably reclaimed fir custom cabinetry, trim, and detail elements. The home enjoys quality throughout with custom Scandinavian lighting, extensive built-ins and more.

The home enjoys quality throughout with custom Scandinavian lighting, extensive built-ins and more.

Ocean-views beckon through custom windows and walls of glass doors that open on grape-covered patios to tended permaculture gardens with flora and fruits to smell, enjoy, nibble, harvest, and cook. The open kitchen has a Bertazzoni gas stove, Miele dishwasher, cement plaster countertops with a beeswax finish, and a hand-crafted work island of natural fir.

The downstairs bath is a small luxury with a shower, sauna, sitting area, hot tub and a cold plunge just outside among the wet garden with a private outside shower.

The two upstairs bedrooms have sizable walk-in closets and the master bedroom has a stand-alone tub to soak in before bed or on those late Sunday mornings. As a benefit, there are additional rooms both upstairs and downstairs for offices, art spaces, or to just spread out a little.

The property also offers several useful out-buildings including a legal 2-bedroom 900+ sf guest house. With its passive solar orientation, this small house perches over an orchard and offers ocean views from every room. It is light and fine in its simplicity, with a European vernacular of white and light wood.

This second home offers both function and space with its open floor plan, roomy kitchen, and loft. And the generous deck veiled in roses and wisteria offer an indoor/outdoor living environment. If you long for excellence, you will find it here!

From the Homeowners/Builders:

“In our minds, beauty offers peace. When you approach a well-designed, beautiful space, you are distracted or demanded of. Your eyes are not darting around trying to resolve the space. You are calmed by the surroundings--they invite you to do your life in them, be with your friends and family in
