Perched above the famous surf spot Windansea Beach, the two-bedroom/two-bath (plus office/bedroom with bath) — listed for $2,200,000 — is a functional piece of art inventively constructed of concrete, redwood and glass in 1923 and has recently been sensitively restored and enhanced. Accented with a 1,500+ sq ft deck and patio with spa and showers, the home offers views of the Pacific Ocean and a relaxed indoor-outdoor 21st Century lifestyle.
It is a place you can retreat and enjoy the hypnotic sounds of the nearby waves, and yet you never feel like you are alone. And, due to the wonderful blurring of interior and the exterior space, retreating to the Court is like arriving on vacation. Schindler’s stripped-down palette of modest, organic and exposed materials (concrete, wood and glass), and the unfussy, unadorned spaces themselves, promote a clarity in thought and a simplicity in life that we all aspire for today.
