For sale for the first time. HOUSES THAT CONNECT as categorized in The Sea Ranch book Fifty Years of Architecture, Landscape, Place, and Community on the Northern California California Coast by Donlyn Lyndon and Jim Alinder. The Halley House connects in many ways to its surroundings, literally, figuratively, and through association, transcending its technically informed origins. Designed for his parents, by John Halley, who founded Comet Studios (a practice concentrating on environmentally conscious planning and design), it uses energy harvested from the solarium to heat the interior spaces. Aggregate concrete floors draw you into the interior of this efficient passive solar design. Warm wood finishes embrace you as you look through floor to ceiling windows, making for a seamless connection to the outdoor meadow environment and ocean beyond. For outdoor living and entertaining, double glass siding doors open out from the solarium onto a patio with southern exposure. A Chinese oven at the patio cooks with hot smoke. The gentle downslope of the west meadow environment descends to the rugged coastline. Hike for miles along the bluff top trail. Take in the sites and sounds of all that The Sea Ranch has to offer from this magical place.
