Is it a spa or is it a house?
Designed by famed NorCal architect Mickey Muennig in 1998, this scenic modern paradise sit on 21 acres of prime Big Sur land.
The two-bedroom, three-bathroom house unfolds over its 2,652 square feet in tiers that follow the sloped plot of land. The entryway opens onto two sets of stairs: one that leads to a sunken living room anchored by a circular concrete fireplace, and another that leads to an open-plan kitchen and dining area. Yet another set of stairs from the living room is connected to an indoor garden/spa that features an indoor-outdoor hot tub.
While the house is laid out as open-plan, the bedrooms offer a sense of privacy. The expansive private quarters come with their own decks, and the master features a waterfall shower that’s overflowing with flora.
Muennig embraced natural shapes and materials that echo the raw beauty of the Big Sur landscape. Redwood beams span the ceiling; circular windows look out onto the mountains and ocean; and burnished concrete floors give the space a warm, organic feel.
Located at 46902 Pfeiffer Ridge Road, this striking home can be yours for $4,895,000.
