Property Description

Casa Lauria , the ‘House of Bay Laurel’, is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Big Sur architectural history. Inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright student Rowan Maiden, designer of Big Sur’s famed Nepenthe, Casa Lauria was built in the 60’s by renowned builders Frank and Walter Trotter. The home’s open beamed cantilevered roof, massive exposed redwood joists, and rows upon rows of windows form one of Big Sur’s most beloved great rooms, with gorgeous Big Sur River valley and mountain views. The house is large by any measure, especially for Big Sur, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an additional large creative space which opens to the property’s Mediterranean inspired gardens. Terraces, decks, and patios are everywhere offering multiple outdoor living areas, a hot tub, and a claw foot tub. Ideally located up it’s own private road on Apple Pie Ridge, long known for it’s sunny weather and friendly residents, the home enjoys deep privacy, yet is only minutes from Hwy 1 and Big Sur’s restaurants, resorts and hiking. From the house, walk up the path that leads to the upper large private flat spot with views that offers additional Big Sur living potential, or take the path south which leads into the redwoods with it’s year round stream and the property’s plentiful fresh water spring.
