William Turnbull, Jr., FAIA – along with Charles Moore, Donlyn Lyndon, and Richard Whitaker – created the master plan of the ecologically-designed 10-mile coastal stretch known as The Sea Ranch. In this community, a home known as the Hines House was designed by Turnbull. It is now being offered for sale for the first time publicly since 1972.
The three-bedroom, three-bath residence includes a 1,977-square-foot main house and a 405-square-foot guest house. The asking price at the time of publishing this post is $2,450,000. For more information, click here.
As one of the first private residences designed by MLTW-Moore/Turnbull with William Turnbull Jr. as lead architect, the plan’s program of a “big house” and “bunk house” was shaped into an architectural form creating a gathering place for family, friends and visitors. Set on just over 1.5 acres of prime view property, Turnbull preserves the natural hillside by designing the levels of interior spaces to coincide with the slope.
A vertical terrace between the two buildings at the Hines House affords both private courtyard and stairway with axial views of both the sea, and the forest.
Old growth redwood, Douglas fir interiors and 6 strategically placed skylights convey oneness with nature. Turnbull worked on the house from its construction until the end of his life, designing a kitchen expansion, library, view deck, and new skylights. The home won the Sunset/AIA Home of the Year Award in 1970, and has been published in Japan, Europe & North America.
