Realm of the Senses

The road less traveled. Stunning in simplicity and stirring in it’s resonance with the natural world. A timeless setting bathed in tranquility and the soothing sounds of silence. Hundreds of acres of rolling meadow and open pastoral expanse nestled among the ancient marine terraces of the North Coast. Rising above and presiding over some of the best views and finest stretches of sand and surf found anywhere on the planet.

This is the middle of nowhere and the center of everything at the same time. Private, pristine and right next door to the newly designated Cotoni-Coast Dairies National Monument, a jewel of 5,800 acres destined to be preserved and protected in perpetuity. Endless horizons. Lush riparian canyons. Deep forested ridgelines. Year round creeks flowing to the Pacific to carve secret secluded beaches below the majestic coastal bluffs. A realm of the senses that inspires a lasting legacy.

An iconic “haiku house” and contemporary ode to a 16th century Japanese country villa with echoes of Greene and Greene and period craftsman design. The highest quality wood construction with massive beam structure, soaring ceilings and dramatic light-filled interiors.

Perfectly-scaled comfortable open living plan with cook’s kitchen and ground floor primary suite all adorned with mission plaster finishes, maple floors, luxe wool carpet, sculpted central fireplace and soulful vintage details and fixtures throughout. French doors and a full wraparound veranda offer seamless indoor/outdoor living, primetime ocean viewing and daily communion with nature.This is the mindful integration of form and function, casual luxury, relaxed high-end discernment and priceless opportunity.

There are 50 acres of private estate environs and thousands of feet of frontage along Laguna Creek. Easy access to endless hiking, biking and riding trails in Wilder Ranch State Park. Fruit orchard, gardens, lavish perennials, outbuildings, caretaker and guest quarters all worthy of a destination resort and a lifetime of enjoyment.

All a short drive to remarkable North Coast beaches, the historic seaside town of Davenport, the University, San Jose Airport, Silicon Valley and all the local restaurants, shopping and services on the Westside of Santa Cruz.

“On earth there is no heaven, but there are pieces of it.” – Jules Renard
