Scenic Big Sur Coastal Retreat Offers Timber-Clad Comfort for $2.2M

It's got private hiking trails, too

Location: Big Sur, California

Price: $2,200,000

With a huge deck with pool and private hiking trails overlooking the gorgeous misty coastline of California's Big Sur region, this '80s timber home offers one of the Golden State's most popular natural vistas right in its backyard. Designed by NorCal architect Alan Turpen, the 1984-built house and guesthouse is marked by all wood-paneled walls, vaulted wooden ceilings, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace in the living room, and patios off bedrooms.

Numerous windows of various shapes and sizes throughout the home also bring in dramatic seaside views, as well as the rest of the heavily vegetated 4.7-acre lot. Last sold in 1999 for just over $1M, the 2,300-square-foot retreat is now back for 117 percent more at $2.2M.
