Miller Residence

This award-winning property features waterfalls of locally-sourced stone in front and back, flagstone patios, incredible views, raised vegetable planters, fruit trees and berry vines. It is a prime example of sustainably turning the site constraint of a steep hillside into an opportunity for a peaceful, mountain retreat.

Approaching this residence, the plant-lined driveway leads to an entry island which deflects headlights and sets up an entry experience. The beautifully planted entry garden, with oaks, olives, melaleuca, and a colorful variety of drought-tolerant shrubs and grasses accentuate the craftsman details of the entry (designed and built by Luhr Construction). The backyard continues the theme, with the added elements of a straw bale seat-wall and deck. A paver patio completes the outdoor living area, and connects to the small lawn, with panoramic views of San Luis Obispo.

Risen from the ashes, this home, and its surroundings were once only ruins from a devastating fire.  After the fire, a true rebirth occurred with the rebuilding of the house and gardens.  The purpose of this garden is simple:  Sit, talk, relax and renew the body and spirit.  Bold drifts of color and texture define the bulk of the garden, creating islands of Olive-shaded patios for meals, parties, or for just a private sunset meditation.  This landscape is reminiscent of an impressionist painting and its broad strokes are free-flowing, soft and peaceful.  (Winner of Best Xeriscape 2011, SLO County Chapter CLCA Awards).

This garden creates the perfect place to enjoy the bounties of Paso‘s wine growing region. Whether it is a pizza party with the wood fire pizza oven, an intimate gathering by the unique fireplace and pond, or a day of tending the garden and home vineyard, life is good here. Somewhere between formal and natural, the garden flows seamlessly to provide entertainment options for day and night, with an emphasis on good food, good wine, and good friends.
