The client of the house commissioned Turnbull, Griffin, Haesloop Architects to replace a cherished William Wurster house that burned down on the site. According to the firm's website, "the client requested we design the new house to capture the spirit of the original house while meeting all the current seismic codes and FEMA requirements for houses in high risk coastal zone, which included raising the floor level of the house."

Stinson Beach has only 632 residents (at the time of the 2010 census), which means if you're looking for the ultimate coastal getaway, you've come to the right spot. Plus, it's only a 35-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge so if you're not looking to totally abandon city life then this intimate community will provide you with the perfect balance.

We can't imagine any spot more relaxing and rejuvenating than right here -- imagine starting your day off with a cup of coffee in hand and the ocean breeze in your face. The only thing that may temper that relaxation is the costly purchase price.
