Big Sur oceanfront home with skybridge now asks $6.2M 

Big Sur, California, has no shortage of epic ocean views, and one of our favorite pastimes is ogling the picturesque real estate perched on the region’s iconic cliffs. One of the most impressive homes currently on the market is a three-bedroom, three-bath stunner—called Terra Mar—that recently underwent a $400,000 price drop.

The 2,679-square-foot house was built in 1998 by Mickey Muennig, the famed NorCal architect behind Big Sur staples like the Post Ranch Inn, a luxury eco hotel. Muennig has lived on this section of rugged coastline since the early 1970s, helping to craft California’s take on the organic architecture movement by building everything from underground houses to residences inspired by airplanes.


In this Muennig design, guests are welcomed to the property through a private garden area with an outdoor fire pit before entering the free-flowing house. Like in much of Muennig’s work, there are no right angles in the home—you’ll instead find swooping lines, curved walls, and exposed wood.

The home sits perched on a cliff for jaw-dropping sunsets.


The living room features floor-to-ceiling windows and a patio with panoramic ocean views. A central fireplace adds coziness and Muennig’s signature slated wood ceilings curve to mimic an ocean wave. After walking up a small staircase, a door opens off of the kitchen to the home’s most impressive feature: a sky bridge that leads you to a guest house. The sky walk features glass walls that disappear into the ocean, giving the impression that you’re walking on the edge of the world.


The modestly sized one-bedroom guest house features its own bath and a private patio to take advantage of the views. Other perks on the 1.5-acre property include an attached garage and a rooftop deck. The interior photos are limited, so we’ve added a video tour, below.


Interested? 48720 Highway 1 is on the market now for $6,650,000.
