First offering: The DeVault Residence, 1958, Herbert Kameon, AIA. The tenets o f Organic Architecture as espoused by Wright and Harris are strictly adhered to in what is reputed to be Herbert Kameon's first residential commission. The success of this endeavor is best measured by the long tenure of the DeVault family, and the home's enduring intimate connection with the land and the sea. The rustic private lane leading up to the property, the house sheathed in wide board and batten redwood, and its careful setting within the giant boulders arrayed across the site evokes a timeless romance, and magic not unlike the poet Robinson Jeffer's Tor House in Monterey. The simple pleasures of living in nature by the sea, without puff or pretense, await the discerning buyer.
