Big Sur estate description
Coast Ranch is one of the most spectacular ocean front properties on the California coast. Ideally located in The Coastlands development of Big Sur, offering privacy and serenity overlooking the Big Sur Coastline it is just a short drive to the Big Sur Bakery, Nepenthe Restaurant, The Post Ranch and Ventana Inn. Coast Ranch is ideal for a small group or a couple and is situated on 130 acres, nestled on a ridge at an elevation of 900 feet with stunning ever changing views to the north and south. A nice green California lawn spreads from the west side of the main house to a bench with a spectacular ocean view. Numerous small native shrubs, flowers and trees grow here, their diversity reflecting the many microclimatic areas that Monterey County is known for. From the ridge whales are often visible frolicking in the deep waters below and Condors can be seen soaring above. The property drops away dramatically to the ocean below where your will find an amazing private beach and although the trail is mildly challenging it is worth the hike and a rest stop at Fern Springs is recommended where you can drink fresh water spouting out directly from the spring. The beach is teeming with sea birds and the smell of the waves and salt air is heady. Tidal action and the shoreline provide great interest. Standing there you look around and know this place hasn't changed for thousands of years! And it is completely private! Back up on the ridge there are cool swings to go to and fro while watching the horizon. Oh! and the sunsets are as good as any in the world-no kidding! One can sit and daydream or take in the sunsets with your favorite beverage. This place is the perfect retreat!
The house is vintage 1930's Big Sur. It is of post & beam construction and adobe brick handmade from clay on the property. It has historical significance as it was constructed during the era of the opening of the Carmel-San Simeon Highway (now known as Highway 1). The house has a full kitchen, a master bedroom with a king bed, a second bedroom with a queen bed, an inside shower & small tub as well as an outside shower and cool old claw-foot tub to soak in. The large living room has a wood burning stove with a carved mantel piece above and is graced by two large indoor Ficus trees on either end. A beautiful dining table is located in the 'Big Room' and looks out to the North. There is a more intimate breakfast table located next to the kitchen which faces out to the courtyard. The yard is fenced by a low hand split rail fence which opens to a great view of the Pacific. The feel of the place is laid-back and unassuming. It is quintessential Big Sur.

The ranch was exceptional in every regard. I rented it for my husbands 60th birthday and we shared the property with 6 other friends. The view was beautiful, the hike to the beach was invigorating with a well maintained trail. The ranch house was charming and the sleeping pods were modern. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and pots and pans. As soon as you arrive you feel the serenity of the surroundings and it stays with you your entire stay.

Manager response: Thank you Denise! We are very pleased that you enjoyed your time at the property in Big Sur. You are welcome to return anytime and we certainly hope you do!
Coast Ranch looked amazing from the website and it exceeded expectations! The house had everything our group of 6 needed. We especially enjoyed the hot tub and fire pit. The hike down to the beach was challenging but we were rewarded with seal and dolphin sightings. We can't wait to stay here again!

Beautiful house in a spectacular setting!

This house was lovely, meticulously clean, comfortable, unpretentious and with a breathtaking view on par with the Post Ranch. Locat,ed in the heart of Big Sur, the house is minutes from restaurants and hikes. We walked out every morning to look at the ocean and couldn't believe our luck. The Coast Ranch Adobe is a true find and a place to be treasured. We can't wait to come back.
