Escape through winding tunnels of California Coastal Oaks to this private and secluded 40-acre Central Coast retreat. Built atop a stunning evergreen valley, the home and its wraparound deck, pool, and spa are strategically oriented to maximize the incredible views below. The property boasts a unique micro-climate due to the network of low-lying creeks and valleys that connect the surrounding foothills to the ocean’s influence. The 2,600+/- sqft, 3 bed, 3 bath home underwent a major renovation in 2007 to accentuate a rock outcropping in the mountainside. This rock is integrated in dramatic fashion as the home’s main structural and design feature. Inspired by Chinese mythology this one-of-a-kind home sits on the Crouching Tiger (massive rock) and is surrounded by the Hidden Dragon (spiraled Oak trees) offering a spectrum of spiritual forces. The property evokes peace, tranquility, inspiration, and a connection with the land while balancing remoteness and convenience. Located less than 15 miles from Hwy 101/Santa Maria, the property is equipped with walking trails, an outdoor kitchen, greenhouses, a well, and water storage tanks.
