Here is a rare opportunity to own a quintessential Northern California mid-century coastal contemporary residence that remains fully intact as the architect intended. It was designed by Lee Aaron Ward who apprenticed at Taliesin West with famed American architect, Frank Lloyd Wright.
Two waterfront homes, separated by two single-car garages, are situated atop a cliff overlooking the magnificent turquoise blue waters of a cove created by a rocky promontory with two sizable sea caves. Viewers are greeted by an incomparable long-range westerly vista composed of the Pacific ocean, whitewater and sea cave views showcased from floor-to-ceiling windows. An expansive deck connects the structures and provides opportunities to entertain, or to contemplate the magnificent view and the sound of the crashing surf in satisfying solitude.
With three levels, the main home offers an open floor-plan with a redbrick wood-burning fireplace in the living area. This living level includes an office and a full bath. Upstairs is the master suite with jaw dropping views, a bath ensuite, and the second bedroom. The third bedroom, below the main living level, features a redbrick wood-burning fireplace, and access to the lower garden patio and a private view deck.
The guest house enjoys a fully equipped kitchen, dining area with original builtins, a living room with red-brick fireplace, a bedroom, a full bath and a sleeping loft. Situated on three parcels, this property is well-suited as a primary residence, a second home, or an income producing vacation rental. Walk to the many amenities of historic Elk Village with its fine restaurants, services and Greenwood State Park.
