Jaw-Dropping Views and Supreme Seclusion on Big Sur's Coast

More

Location: Big Sur, California

Price: $6,800,000

This 60-acre estate, comprised of rolling grasslands on the cliffs above the Pacific surf, offers Bay Area folks a relaxing retreat, provided they can afford the near $7,000,000 price tag. Located above the famed Pfeiffer Beach, the modern post-and-beam home measures just 3,180 square feet, hardly the McMansion one might expect at this price point. But such is the culture of Big Sur, where the rich come for privacy and stellar views, not to show off their extravagant homes. That's not to say this house is without luxuries, like a hot tub, massive stone fireplaces, a built-in grill, and a media room.
