Bixby Canyon

2.4 acre family homestead on the Old Coast Highway.

$995,000 Sold

Set in a sunny clearing with huge redwoods this property is on a private driveway with an electric gate just far enough off the county maintained road for total privacy and seclusion. While the kids can play in the giant tree house the adults can luxuriate in the hot tub. This property is also part of the historic Bixby Canyon Corporation and has access to the private beach just a short stroll away along the verdant creek.

It was in the 1950's that an eclectic group of like-minded bohemians bought the whole of Bixby canyon from the original owners who ran a resort and hotel through the early part of the 20th. century. They divided the flat areas along the creek into 2 or 3 acre parcels and dedicated the mountainous canyon walls and the road to the beach as a private preserve for the use of the property owners.

This early preservation was at the forefront of a movement back to the land inspired by the infamous artists, writers and poets of this area, where fresh clean water is abundant and natural beauty a backdrop to everyday living. It remains today in the same pristine state with over 100 acres of private preserved common land. This property is just 15 minutes from Carmel yet a thousand light years away.


Lopez Point

George and Esther Harlan Ranch, Lopez Point, 385 Oceanfront acres.

$18,000,000 Sold

This 385 acre original pioneer family homestead is now a working cattle and horse ranch encompassing almost 1.5 miles of the Big Sur Coast. It is rich in history, biological diversity and stunning natural beauty.

Miles of good roads and trails interlace the Ranch connecting the coves and beaches, where supplies and equipment were landed before Highway One was built, with the orchards, fields and meadows that provided the abundance that sustained the George and Esther Harlan family. The perfect climate, rich soil and the redwood and oak forests with creeks, waterfalls and springs are the source of this abundance and a backdrop to the epic vistas of awesome natural beauty.

There is also privacy, solitude and harmony in abundance in this vast landscape of superlatives where the pristine beauty of Big Sur combines with the practical improvements of roads, barns, workshops, equipment sheds and corrals as well as two sturdy homes and the remnants of the old homestead, horse barn cabins and boat landing. It is the current owners wish that this unique proprty be sold as one so that it may be stewarded into the next century with as much care and intention as it has been maintained through the last.

Bixby Canyon

2.03 acres with Development Permit.

$635,000 Sold

Between the Old Coast Road and Bixby Beach is a celebrated community that gave the Beat poets, writers and artists their voice and the alternative vision that gave birth to the 60's hippie dream. Within this wooded enclave runs a fast flowing creek to a wide sandy beach alongside the private walking trail that leads under the world famous Bixby Bridge. The Old Coast road is the county road that climbs the Serra Hill and then drops down to the Little Sur River and thence to the Big Sur River at what is now Andrew Molera State Park. This was the old horse & wagon road to Big Sur before the Highway One was constructed and the Bixby Bridge straddled the wide canyon.

In the 1950's an eclectic group of like-minded bohemians bought the canyon from the original owners who ran a resort and hotel through the early part of the 20th. century. They divided the flat areas along the creek into 2 or 3 acre parcels and dedicated the mountainous canyon walls and the road to the beach as a private preserve for the use of the property owners.

This early preservation was at the forefront of a movement back to the land where fresh clean water and air is abundant and natural beauty a backdrop to everyday living. It remains today in the same pristine condition. This 2.03 acre parcel is at the end of the private road and is the last undeveloped parcel in the Bixby Canyon Community. The County has already issued a Combined Development Permit for a 2500sq.ft. home and a bridge accross the creek. The year round creek is your front yard and the creekside trail takes you in just a few minutes to a beach of such breath-taking beauty where the kids can play in the sand as you contemplate natures marvels. This area is just 15 minutes to Carmel yet a million miles away.
