Imag­ine watch­ing the sun set over the Big Sur coast­line from the pri­vacy of your own skywalk bridge.

That’s an op­tion at Terra Mar, “an iconic world-class prop­erty” on the mar­ket for $7.5 mil­lion.

“You’re ab­so­lutely right on the coast. You can’t go any fur­ther west,” The Hein­rich Team as­so­ciate bro­ker Ben Hein­rich said, “and yet you’re ab­so­lutely close to the cen­ter of Big Sur.”

Lo­cated at 48720 High­way 1 in Big Sur, the 1.5acre prop­erty fea­tures a 2,679-square-foot main house with three bed­rooms, three bath­rooms and an at­tached two-car garage.

Built in 1998, the home was de­signed by G.K. “Mickey” Muen­nig, the ar­chi­tect be­hind Big Sur’s famed Post Ranch Inn. Ar­chi­tec­tural Di­gest mag­a­zine hailed that “sub­lime re­sort,” which opened its doors in 1992, as “a mas­ter­piece in Cal­i­for­nia rus­tic chic.”

Terra Mar echoes Post Ranch Inn with ex­posed ceil­ing beams and “beau­ti­ful woods” whose curves match those of the Mon­terey County land­scape.

“The ar­chi­tec­ture is just stun­ning,” said Hein­rich, whose team listed the home on Real­tor.com. “There are no right an­gles any­where in the house. All of the woods are con­toured, free-formed, freeflow­ing, which is a real sig­na­ture of Mickey Muen­nig.”

“You al­ways get the feel­ing that the house is mov­ing ... be­cause of the way each room flows into the next,” Hein­rich added.

In ad­di­tion to the main house, which boasts a kitchen with gran­ite coun­ter­tops and an open liv­ing area with a freeform fire­place, Terra Mar fea­tures a “very pri­vate, very se­cluded” guest house with one bed­room, one bath­room and a “beau­ti­ful rooftop deck,” Hein­rich said.

On the east­ern side of the prop­erty is an out­door en­ter­tain­ing area with a stone fire­place and an ar­bor drip­ping with bougainvil­lea.

“If you’re tired of the ocean views, you have a nice lit­tle place to sit and med­i­tate,” Hein­rich said. “It’s a beau­ti­ful lo­ca­tion and very peace­ful.”

But the prop­erty’s clear­est draw is the skywalk bridge that con­nects the main res­i­dence to the guest house. Poised above the cliff, the skywalk of­fers “one of the most ex­tra­or­di­nary views of the Pa­cific and the rugged Big Sur coast­line” that you’re likely to find in the re­gion, the listing said.

Terra Mar may be lo­cated on a “spec­tac­u­lar and se­cluded site” in The Coast­lands gated com­mu­nity, ac­cord­ing to the Real­tor.com listing, but Hein­rich said it’s not far from civ­i­liza­tion.

The prop­erty is only a four- or five-minute drive from Post Ranch Inn and Ven­tana Big Sur re­sort, he said.
