Turtle House, Estate of the Day
The Turtle House a unique house in the Enchanted Forest of Big Sur is a beautiful, if small, home. The name comes from the design, a hexagonal center with four arms that stretch out into the forest next to a creek and a head that has a hot tub. Despite the sylvan location this home is wired with the latest technology including wi-fi, a security system, a home theater and a Lutron lighting system. There is also a hydraulic lift in the garage that holds four cars. The home has a warm floor heating system and uses a propane furnace. Water comes from a gravity, spring-fed water system. The home is just 1600 square feet and is furnished with pieces that were custom designed and built for the home by Morris Sheppard/Sheppard Design. The living room includes a wood stove on a granite hearth and the study/library has two desks back to back with views and a fax machine. The gourmet kitchen has a Wolf stove, All-Clad cookware, a microwave, dishwasher, and granite counters and the dining room is cantilevered over the creek. No need to bring your own bed, the master bedroom has a platform queen bed meant to match perfectly with the skylight above. It is listed at $8 million.
