Currently on the market, this truly exceptional work of art was designed by longtime Santa Barbara architect Michael Carmichael. Situated in a small enclave of eclectic oceanfront homes just north of Refugio State Park, this architectural masterpiece holds spectacular views of the Ocean and beyond.
In the spirit of Gaudi and anticipating the curvilinear masterworks of Frank Gehry, Carmichael designed, engineered, and built what he called the “Wave House.” Rising from a base of beach stones, the house is defined by long, sweeping laminated wood beams, custom crafted to form the underside of a huge wave which curls up and over the living space. Carmichael added louvered openings high on the ocean side of the house which flood the interior with sounds of the surf breaking on the shore below.
Currently Listed with Steven Richardson of Coldwell Banker at $2,450,000.
