According to the listing on, the compound was designed by Big Sur architect Mickey Muennig and was “his final residential masterpiece.” Muennig, who was called “the man who built Big Sur,” had a distinct style and was considered a pioneer in the Golden State’s “iconoclastic organic architecture movement,” Dwell reported.

“What Mickey was able to do here was to take this amazing piece of property and not have the architecture compete with the beauty of the landscape,” Mike Freed, owner of one of Muennig most notable works, the Post Ranch Inn, told Dwell.
