Hedgerow Houses

Constructed as demonstration housing by Oceanic Properties, Inc., these five dwellings, plus Esherick's own home for a total of six, are grouped together and integrated into the cypress hedgerow. Their sloping roofs - some sod-covered, window placement, staggered siting, and slight adjustments in orientation to fit the land illustrate the strategies for buffering wind, maximizing sunlight and viewsheds, and preserving common open space. The first detached houses constructed, they helped set the high design standard for which The Sea Ranch is known.
