Property Description

One of California’s most dramatic oceanfront properties, Big Sur’s legendary Dragon House sits atop a 10 acre mystical mountain landscape which rises straight up from the sea to form the continent’s edge. Until very recently cloaked in secrecy, perhaps no other Big Sur property is better equipped to fulfill the dreams of the poet, the artist, the oceanographer, the gardener, and the mystic all at the same time. Waves of curved redwood walls, Craftsman windows, vintage stained glass, and an enormous indigenous stone fireplace surround the massive hand carved redwood Dragon staircase centerpiece of the main house, which local bohemian wood artist Edmund Kara himself considered his finest work. A private trail with unbelievably beautiful views of the cliffs rising from the sea leads to the intimate setting of the “Ocean Room”. Located on Big Sur’s equivalent of the Cote d’Azur with a gated private driveway and spectacular ocean view guest and caretaker cottages, this property is without question one of Big Sur’s rarest treasures.
