Situated within a wildlife sanctuary on California’s picturesque Central Coast, every aspect of the property’s design and construction was approached with a deep respect for the environment. Adhering strictly to the region’s rigorous construction and ecological standards was of paramount importance. As a testament to its eco-conscious design, the property is equipped with its independent well and septic system. The landscaping predominantly features drought-resistant plants, minimizing water consumption and maintaining harmony with the surrounding environment.

A noteworthy challenge faced during the property’s design phase was the hilltop’s susceptibility to intense winds. This natural element played a pivotal role in influencing the positioning and architectural nuances of each structure, ensuring they not only withstand these forces but also harmoniously coexist with the environment.

In essence, this property isn’t merely a residence; it’s a sanctuary where architecture and nature coalesce, promising an unmatched living experience amidst California’s captivating landscapes.
