The Glass House at Timber Cove
The Glass House in the hamlet of Timber Cove is beyond oceanfront. It is simply ocean. Effortlessly poised on a dramatic promontory, the house stands high above the swirling waters of the Pacific Ocean on the rocky cliffs of the renowned Sonoma Coast. Built with native sandstone and Old Growth California redwood, the home makes the most of the surrounding landscape without disturbing its beauty. This breathtaking location was the subject of a series from the renowned photographer, Ansel Adams, who branded the site Cemetery Point in the 1960s. This area has been carefully developed to preserve the legacy of the unspoiled landscape by taking advantage of the existing terrain. The home was originally built as a vacation home by San Francisco designer, Richard Clements Jr. The home's interior floorplan and layout follows the natural contours of the rock upon which the home is built. Since its original construction in 1964, the home and adjacent bridge have been substantially remodeled and updated with the highest of standards and materials. With approximately 1,200 square feet of interior space, The Glass House has an ideal open floorplan that features a fully equipped kitchen with marble counters and stainless steel appliances, living room with sunken conversation area around the fireplace, one bedroom and one full bath. The floor to ceiling windows in the open living area provide incredible panoramas of the vast Pacific Ocean rolling in from the horizon. These windows, which are built from Starphire glass, can be sild open to allow the cool ocean breeze to flow through the home and to enhance the sounds of surrounding waves. Step out onto the deck, or into the incredible hot tub, and embrace the sensational surroundings of this truly one of a kind home. Wake up to the sound of waves, feel the ocean mist on your skin, and escape into the breathtaking, natural beauty that is the homes' location.
