Location: Jenner, California
We thought having an address on Permanent School Road was pretty cool—until, that is, this cliffside jaw-dropper came on the market with a decidedly posher locale on Highway 1.
Located in Jenner, California, a tiny seal town in Sonoma County with a population of about 136, the Glass House in Timber Cove is, according to the listing’s brokerbabble, “beyond oceanfront.” Instead, it’s “simply ocean,” and we are inclined to agree, at least reluctantly.
Perched on a promontory in the Pacific Ocean, the 1,200-square-foot home at 22124 Highway 1 only has one bedroom and one bath, but that hardly matters given its incredible surroundings.
A long wooden walkway winds from the road down to the cathedral-like residence made of glass and stone, where floor-to-ceiling glazing frames stunning views, and a sunken living area with fireplace and pointed skylight, spacious kitchen, and cozy bedroom provide intimate, luxurious living.
Outside, two decks, one with a hot tub, offer even more front-row action, making the steep price tag of $3,900,000 a little more palatable.
