Roughing It In Luxury
Not too many luxury weekend getaways sport plastic-coated canvas tents and a communal, co-ed bathroom.
But a camp-like compound spread across 16 acres of sunny hillside in a seaside town two hours south of San Fransico is exactly what owners Kate Ditzler and Stuart Gasner wanted for their Brady Bunch mix of five children from previous marriages. The main house has a great room and one bedroom and bath upstairs. Two guest rooms and the communal bath are housed in an adjacent building with overlapping, perpendicular roofs. A separate barn-like structure holding a large group guest room and bath is a short walk away, as are the two single-room tents and a sauna. A rectangular pool is down the hillside.
