An outdoor living space features a large infinity pool that flows from under an open sky to a roofed indoor courtyard, blurring the boundary between indoors and out. This wood, five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom coastal home accommodates eight and includes a caretaker’s quarters to ensure you don’t have to lift a finger during your stay. Even when you’re indoors, vast open windows, terraces and decks evoke the feeling of being outside.
