This unique Big Sur Modern oceanfront home is constructed with poured-in-place aggregate concrete and redwood, in a playful series of hexagons. Built in 1968, at the height of mid-century modernism, this is one of iconic local designer and artist Warren Leopold's architectural masterpieces. A piece of art for the discriminating collector, rustic yet refined. A secluded hideaway--it is a place to read a book, write a book, or lounge with friends. Trademark details include stained glass windows, with thinly sliced agate inserted to add detail and whimsy, a two-story turret, hexagonal rooms accentuated with white washed redwood, skylights and dentil work throughout. The expanses of glass seamlessly bring the outdoors in. Wrap around decking and secluded patios create an intimate setting for entertaining. Leopold's mastery of volume and space create a floorplan where rooms merge to enhance the natural rhythm and flow of modern living.
The ocean view kitchen with generous cabinetry is adjacent to the unique indoor-outdoor bar, and the built-in window seats of the living room with fireplace and expansive ocean views. The master bedroom encompasses the entire second floor. Repeating the hexagonal theme, it features a large domed skylight, fireplace, and wrap around windows allowing views in all directions. Fall asleep under the stars to the sound of crashing waves. The en-suite bath includes an ocean view jetted tub, separate shower, and large dressing room and closet. The media/game room accommodates a large screen TV for movie night as easily as a half dozen friends for a weekend. There are two additional bedrooms, each with en-suite baths. One is outfitted with a fireplace, the other a private entry, which could be used as an in-law or au-pair suite. A successful, permitted vacation rental in an area with very few ocean-front rentals, this unforgettable home has tide pools just steps away. It is just a block to the mile-long public oceanfront bluff of Fiscalini Ranch, and three other coastal access parks. Restaurants and shops are minutes away, Hearst Castle and Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal rookery, and world class wineries within a short drive.
