Pebble Beach
Historically named the Robert Hunter House, or as he referred to it, Fairview. Robert Hunter, born in 1874, is known for his timeless contributions to the theory and practice of golf course design and being the architect behind the golf courses at Pebble Beach Golf Links and Cypress Point. In 1926, he published his pioneering book on golf course design, The Links. In 1928, Hunter commissioned the renowned Los Angeles architect, Wallace Neff, to design his home located on the 13th tee box of Pebble Beach Golf Links. Neff was known to design homes that were warm, livable, and surprisingly not meant to be impressive. The plan was for these wings to reach out in four directions off of a circular entrance hall forming four outdoor courtyards each with a different purpose whether views, service, or entrance. Another common aspect of Neff’s designs in the 20’s and 30’s was the use of French or screen doors to create seamless indoor-outdoor living, as well as intimate informal living. Later in 1944, Fairview became the location where Elizabeth Taylor filmed her very first movie, National Velvet, directed by Clarence Brown. This property is the epitome of classic Pebble Beach and perfectly encapsulates a moment in time.
