At the request of a reader who is searching for a home in Big Sur, California, I am featuring three Big Sur homes today for comparison. So let’s see which one you would pick!
The first one is a Mickey Muennig designed remodel of a 1977 home.
[A quick note about Big Sur: Big Sur isn't really a city or a town, it is more of a sparsely populated area that runs along the California central coast, south of San Francisco. Most of the homes there have sprawling secluded properties, great views of the Pacific Ocean, and are très expensive.]
This particular home is listed for $2,995,000.
According to the Trulia.com website, the estimated monthly payment at that sales price (with 20% down) would be $13,409 a month!
But what a wonderful contemporary home - look at those gleaming dyed concrete floors and the triangular clerestory windows!
This one-of-a-kind property on the Big Sur Coast in California is currently for sale for $3,995,000.
The million dollar views of the Pacific Ocean are sublime… but the sellers decided to throw in a really cool house as well.
This 1,075 square foot home has only 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom but the property also includes a guest cottage and a caretaker’s cottage.
Known as the “Dragon House“, this architectural wonder has been for sale since 2010.
Main house features hand carved redwood Dragon staircase, curved redwood walls, stone fireplace, stained glass, and Craftsman windows.
