‘No matter where you go in the house you are pulling the outside in with these huge windows and doors that fold back,’ says Ms. Drieberg, who is in her 50s. She renovated the home, including redoing the bedrooms and bathrooms and replacing the floors. She also refurbished the kitchen and extended the outside decks.

The home has views of the hills. ‘At night you see the light of the lighthouse slowly going around,’ Ms. Drieberg says. ‘That’s really beautiful and romantic on a pitch black night with the stars shining.’
