Big Sur's Legendary Dragon House and Arresting Views of the Pacific

More

Location: Big Sur, California

Price: $3,995,000

Perched on a cliff above California's dramatic Big Sur coastline, the Dragon House lives up to its name, with abundant built-in dragon carvings, including two large examples flanking the staircase. The 10-acre property earns its legendary status, however, with its utterly arresting views of the Pacific Ocean, complemented by broad windows and expansive outdoor entertaining spaces. A fascinating combination of exceedingly unique design and universally renowned views, the compound includes a guest house, caretakers cottage, "ocean room," and the wood-paneled main house. The property is currently listed for almost $4,000,000, but is that too much to lure the average multi-millionaire into this palace of winged serpents?
