Very stunning home with an even more stunning view! Only thing I'm not crazy about is the exterior concrete as it just doesn't become a part of its surroundings but clashes with the forest.

Fabulous home. The skill and craftsmanship is inspiring. Although I am sure these owners are fabulous parents, I personally couldn't have my 2 year old anywhere near the open stairs, expanses of concrete, and open ended deck above a drop. Perhaps this is not an everyday residence? But as a piece of art and inspiration, breathtaking.

There are several state parks in Big Sur, but most of the land here is not protected, including the many homes along the coast There are also some designated open space areas not open to development. The California Coastal Commission does have authority over development in the coastal area, and this house would have been within the limitations and regulations set up in the county's coastal plan (originally developed in the 1980s through a hearing process).

I don't understand this fad of hanging the television above the fireplace, in most cases it is far too high. They should be viewed at eye level. People must get sore necks.

I concur a mantle should change with the seasons...... Call me old school but I still like the TV concealed in an armoire or proper cabinet ......conversation that lingers over coffee or cocktails needs a revival period !

Tried for years to have children, expensive medical bills, no responses from adoption agencies. Bought a very attractive white sofa. That did the trick -- two little boys in less than one year.

Mid century modern? I can't even figure what that is! My home is very transitional so I wonder how it came up with that! Funny!

Nailed it with traditional. We recently had our master bath resigned and when the designer saw our home she said our taste was a little eclectic but mostly traditional. I agreed then and now.

Interesting article. The design "sin" that makes me very anxious (I am not joking, it really makes me uncomfortable) is art work/mirrors hung way too high.
