Mickey Muennig Masterpeice in Big Sur

One look at the dramatic scene unfolding from the floor-to-ceiling glass and it's easy to see why Mickey Muennig, the architect who imbued California’s mystic coastline with organic, flowing architecture, chose this breathtaking 109-acre plot of land on Big Sur's epic Cooper Point for his final residential masterpiece.

The property takes its idyllic position at the western tip of Clear Ridge summit, located directly between the spectacular beaches of Pfeiffer and Andrew Molera and connecting the two parklands as the sole private property contiguous to both. White sandy beach, redwood forest, cascading creeks and 360-degree views dazzle the eye, making the glass architectural wonder among Big Sur's most legendary real estate offerings. A stunning three-bedroom, three-bath home blends seamlessly with the rugged coastal hillside, so one cannot tell where the house ends and nature begins. Massive walls of glass rise up, providing cinematic views of the Pacific coastline 100 miles north or south. An earth roof provides insulation and is part of the landscape. The interiors – modern, restrained, organic – are warmed by heated polished concrete floors. A private guest house complements the main house, reflecting similar organic qualities and would make for an excellent caretaker’s unit. Meanwhile, the property's three separate parcels may provide the future owner with an additional homesite for development, such as the forested flat land just above the un-named white sand beach that the property touches. Completing the property is a three-car garage. The property has been designed to be sustainable with its own well as a water source and solar power, although a grid connection could be had. A spa,  wine cellar and three miles of private hiking trails remind all who arrive at the property to pause, connect to nature and enjoy a life of complete well-being. This iconic residence provides the platform to live comfortably within the extraordinary wild beauty of the Big Sur coastal habitat, while still being only 15 minutes from The Post Ranch Inn and 45 minutes from Carmel and its amenities.
