The Story of Sea Ranch

It began with four young architects sitting atop 100-foot cliffs that plunge into the Pacific. They dreamt of creating a new model for coastal development. That was in 1965. What happened next was monumental.

Home Sweet Home

Bruce and Trudie Scott came up to The Sea Ranch from the Bay Area when Trudie was working on her Master in Education. A little Cape Code-style shingled house caught her eye on daily walks. Now she and Bruce own it, a retreat a few hours from home. “It’s the quiet,” Trudie says. “We get up on Saturday and decide what to eat that night. Then we walk the trails and return here to cook. When winds blow strong we can sit on our back deck and not feel it because of the house’s position against the cypresses.”
