House of the Day (10/3/2019)

The home is from the WSJ House of the Day series back in May 2019.  Per the WSJ, this is a rustic, off-the-grid house in a remote part of Big Sur, California (one of the most gorgeous areas of the U.S.) and on the market for $2.25 million.  The home has Pacific Ocean and mountain views and offers 33 woodsy acres on the site of a former gold mine, nestled in the Los Padres National Forest.  The mine shaft, which is still accessible on the property, was in use until around 1960 and the original miners’ quarters have been preserved and re-purposed as the kitchen of the house (how epic is that kitchen?!?).  The flooring and beams and columns in the living room are from redwoods on the property and the redwood was milled on the property.  The 2,500 sq. ft. main house has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms and there is also a rustic 400 sq. ft. caretaker’s cottage with one bedroom and one bath.  Photos below:

  1. If you didn’t have to move and the furniture was included, I’d say buy it tomorrow. An elevator or knee replacement would make the caretaker’s cottage pretty attractive!
