Timber Cove, Calif.
Price: $1.995 million
Bedrooms: 1
Baths: 1
Square feet: 1,200

This is one of the most expensive 1,200 square-foot homes you'll ever find. The price tag is mainly due to its perch high on a promontory on the rugged Sonoma County coast.

The home is surrounded on three sides by crashing surf. And when the big rollers come in, the spray from breaking waves can wash over the roof of the house, more than 75 feet above the sea. The sturdy steel, stone, redwood and plexi-glass building has been securely anchored to solid rock, however.

The windowed walls give the rooms panoramic ocean views and the spire roof is practically all glass, flooding the interior with light. There's a stone fireplace, a dining area next to a glass wall, a wooden deck and a redwood hot tub.

The house sits on three acres of land and is accessed via a boardwalk. It's about two hours north of San Francisco and an hour or so from some great wine country.
