Fort Sufi

Big Sur, CA, USA
An Ode to Whimsy, Wood and Sixties-Era Environmentalism

Welcome to Big Sur, the famously rugged and cinematic coastal community in California. “It is a region where extremes meet, a region where one is always conscious of weather, of space, of grandeur, and of eloquent silence,” author Henry Miller once wrote.

Fort Sufi

Overlooking Pfeiffer Beach and the South Coast, this home epitomizes the area’s eccentric sense of place, and was constructed of reclaimed, first-growth redwood on a monumental scale. At the time it was built, environmental urgency was unprecedented, and bridgetimber was utterly finite. Only a few bridgetimber homes like it remain.

Fort Sufi was the home of a percussionist and concerts have been performed next to the massive stone and boulder pool akin to a small lake. It is a home that still stirs with the bohemian spirit.

This property in Big Sur has a main house and a separate guest house, and sits on arguably the country’s most beautiful stretch of coastline. 

The main structure’s double-height living room, framed by spectacular posts and beams, has two staircases on either side, leading up to a loft and an adjacent master suite with custom built-ins, a clawfoot soaking tub and south-facing deck. This space's entirety is gigantic and open, with floor-to-ceiling windows that give views of the whole coastline. And it’s filled with treasures; a womb chair, wood sculptures carved like twisted ropes, and a delightful lamp made from seashells.

One floor below is the integrated living area, another bedroom and a lounge space with a horseshoe bar, along with a communal serpentine-and-driftwood tub and an additional bath and shower. On the top floor, there is another bedroom with its own north-south deck and private entrance. A sauna invites you to take in silence and release toxins.

Also on the property is a separate guest house on stilts, with an additional bedroom and bathroom that was inspired by the area's iconic hotel, Post Ranch Inn, with its famous wood and glass treehouse-style rooms. 

Outside, mature gardens sprawl across its 17 acres, and on the raised yoga and mediation platform, we wish we could transport ourselves to one of the concerts that took place. 

Additionally, this home has a hot tub, sauna, Wifi, Internet, heating, kitchen. Please note the property is accessible via a dirt road.


THE EPITOME OF RUGGED CALIFORNIA COASTAL BEAUTY

Big Sur is the perfect California pitstop, located along Highway 1 in a mountainous section of the Central Coast region. It is well-known for its exceptional natural beauty and pristine beaches, and is said to have the longest stretch of undeveloped coastline in the contiguous United States. Novelist Herbert Gold called it “one of the grand American retreats for those who nourish themselves with wilderness”, and Henry Miller described it as “the face of the earth as the Creator intended it to look.”
