“The Glass House” on the Sonoma Coast

The Glass House in the hamlet of Timber Cove is beyond the waterfront. It is simply the ocean. Sitting effortlessly on a dramatic promontory, the home sits above the swirling waters of the Pacific Ocean on the rocky cliffs of the famous Sonoma Coast. Built with native sandstone and old-growth California redwood, the house makes the most of the surrounding landscape without disturbing its beauty. This breathtaking location was the subject of a series by renowned photographer Ansel Adams, who marked the site of Cemetery Point in the 1960s. This area has been carefully landscaped to preserve the legacy of the unspoiled landscape while enjoying of existing land. The house was originally built as a vacation home by San Francisco designer Richard Clements Jr. The house’s interior plan and layout follows the natural contours of the rock on which the house is built. Since its original construction in 1964, the house and adjacent deck have been extensively renovated and updated to the highest standards and materials. With approximately 1,200 square feet of interior space, The Glass House has an ideal open floor plan that includes a fully equipped kitchen with marble countertops and stainless steel appliances, a living room with a sunken conversation area around from the fireplace, a bedroom and a full bathroom. Floor to ceiling windows in the open living space offer incredible vistas of the vast Pacific Ocean from the horizon. These windows, which are constructed of Starphire glass, can be opened to allow the cool ocean breeze to pass through the house and enhance the sounds of the surrounding waves. Step out onto the deck or in the amazing hot tub and enjoy the sensational surroundings of this one-of-a-kind home. Wake up to the sound of the waves, feel the ocean mist on your skin and escape to the breathtaking natural beauty that is the location of the houses.
