About the property

An aesthetic delight high above Cambria steeped in nature but close to town

This property is a perfect blend of rural, coastal and luxury. Sitting on a commanding promontory 800 feet above the valleys that surround it, this two bedroom ranch home has epic views in every direction. The folds of the commanding Santa Lucia Mountains back Cinnabar Ranch, and the Pacific Ocean sets the western panorama, with 40 miles of wild coastline on view.

This large two bedroom house is set up to display the vast beauty that encompasses it. Generous windows frame scene after gorgeous scene. The home has been provisioned with all the things to make your stay comfortable, regal and inspiring. The details of this vacation home will impress. From the fine linens to the quality furnishings. From the books on the shelf to the movies ready to play. From the huge, fully equipped kitchen to the outdoor areas. You will feel immediately at home here. We have tried to anticipate most needs. This house is fully supplied with (almost) everything you'd use at home. Whether that's laundry or ironing, medicine chest basics to baking supplies. We want this stay to exceed your expectations.

The peace of this place will find you. Sitting on 80 private acres, there is both room to roam, and space to gain from the rest of the world. You could have a perfectly lovely stay without ever leaving the property, but if the allure of town (Cambria), the coast or Hearst Castle call to you, it is all a brief drive away. But you'll want to be back here for at least one sunset as the location is set up to provide quite a show. And it's far enough from manmade light that the night sky is typically deep black and spectacular. Enjoy a patio fire and reminisce about the day.

A nature walk from the house can be a fine activity. See cows grazing down valley, critters roaming the grounds, or hawks and vultures circling overhead. Board game inside or yard game outside? How about the hammock and a good book? Or for more modern engagements, there is satellite tv and internet. With a very short drive, you can get to wine tasting, horseback riding and other country goodness. Town has a variety of restaurants, unique shops and art galleries. And, of course, the ocean and beaches await your discovery.

About Brian Wright

I decided to move my family to the Central Coast in 2012 from the Midwest. Here, we've found a world that fits our idea of what life should be. The opportunities to craft a life, whether they be family, community, arts, food, fitness, outdoors....are impressively abundant. Some of what I enjoy doing is helping other people connect to this very special place.

Brian Wright purchased this house in 2013

Why Brian Wright chose Cambria

This property holds many of the qualities that make this part of California so incredible. Hill, valley, mountain, ocean. The nature it contains is abundant and amazing. The nature that surrounds it is gob-smackingly beautiful. And the nature that it pulls out of you when you're there is it's best quality of all.

What makes this house unique

A magical blend of rural peace, coastal inspiration and convenience to town and outdoor activities, all from a beautiful luxury ranch home.

Too Fabulous for Words!!

  • 5 of 5

You can’t imagine how beautiful this place is, even the photos don’t do it justice. Situated high in the hills above Cambria about 5 miles from town, the view is like that of Hearst Castle, coastline as far as you can see. It’s quiet, private, and peaceful, just some cows lowing. The sunsets over the ocean are magnificent, and the stars are spectacular!

The house itself is lovely, comfortable, and very well equipped. The views from every room are amazing. The kitchen has almost everything you’d want. And it's all pretty high-end. Sub-Zero fridge, big gas cooktop and large oven. We went up for Thanksgiving and cooked a big dinner, just like at home. There’s a washer and dryer, too. And the WiFi worked perfectly.

This house is perfect for two couples. There are 2 adult bedrooms, one with a king bed and ensuite bath. The bathroom is huge and has a giant jacuzzi tub with an ocean view. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a big ocean view from the bedroom with a smaller but very lovely bath across the hall. There's a trundle bed in the smaller bedroom, too.

If you take enough provisions, you never have to leave this place and you may not want to! But the many charms of California’s Central Coast are nearby. Moonstone Beach and the Fiscalini Reserve at 10 minutes away, Hearst Castle and the elephant seal rookery just a little farther, and wineries are everywhere. We so enjoyed our stay. Everything was great. And we can’t wait to return.

And dealing with the folks who manage this place was as easy as can be. They were super responsive to all our questions when planning our stay.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful stay, remote enough to feel like we escaped from it all, yet close enough for all of our adventures.

This home was exactly as described, and we enjoyed it so much. It is a peaceful retreat away from the hustle and bustle. There are no other houses nearby, the views are stunning, the house is immaculate, the kitchen is stocked with all you need to cook. We cooked in every night of our 4 night stay. The beach is 4 miles away, the cute little town of Cambria is also about 4 miles, Hearst Castle is 15 min drive. We visited the castle, which was amazing, Linn's bakery (several times), ran along the beach every morning, and just enjoyed quiet time to read and relax. One thing I could say is they could use more outdoor furniture (like lounge chairs for sunbathing!) The road to get up to the house is a mile long, very steep and lots of turns, so you have to be careful. It was too steep to run down or up - we tried! We had our family of 6 and there was plenty of room for comfortable sleeping for all of us (everyone is 17 or older). Overall, it was such a great, beautiful and peaceful place to stay.

Stunning views

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home with all the amenities. Large kitchen for cooking family meals and living space for relaxing. Patio outside was great for sitting to enjoy the views. Great place to spend time the family over the Easter weekend. We loved it so much, we didn't even want to travel to other places to tour. We were happy staying right where we were!
