Cast Your Bid for This California Dream Mansion, Complete With Acres of Pinot Noir Vineyards
The sprawling oceanfront estate is up for grabs with no minimum price tag.
If there was a photographic illustration for the phrase “Living the good life,” you’d find it right here along California’s picturesque central coast. Blessed with blissful weather, striking vistas, and acres of fruitful vineyards, the region is a paradise for beach lovers and winos alike. And if you want paradise without ever having to leave the comfort of your home, we’ve got a place for you.
Meet the Retreat at Cambria, an 80-acre coastal Shangri-la boasting supreme clifftop views, a 14,000-square-foot mansion, and 6,200 vines ripe with Pinot Noir grapes. Set on a prime lot in the quiet central coast town of Cambria, the estate is a bona fide dream house—and soon-to-be real estate score for one lucky person.
Originally priced at $60 million, the Retreat at Cambria is headed to auction with bids opening up on April 24. And, lucky for those of us for whom $60 mil is just a tad expensive, there’s no minimum amount required to bid.
So, the question is, what are you willing to shell out for utopia? The massive retreat, with its breathtaking vistas and unparalleled privacy (the 80 acres are flanked by a marine sanctuary and conservation lands), is the ultimate in luxury. From its sprawling grounds, steps lead down to a near-private beach, and in addition to the property’s acres of vineyards, there are also towering palms and a fruiting olive grove.

If what you seek are lavish living quarters, the Retreat certainly delivers. The main house stands at 14,000-square-feet and is brimming with elegant architectural details, including antique travertine fireplaces and custom copper and bronze front doors. Love to entertain? You’re in luck. The estate boasts impressive public spaces, from the great room with its 30-foot bar and Murano chandeliers to a gigantic chef’s kitchen with dual fridges and ovens, marble and granite surfaces, and a wine cooler. (And, rest assured, that’s not the only place to put your homemade wine: The home also offers a 3,500-bottle cellar and tasting room.)
When the entertaining is over, lucky owners can happily hole up in their “Master Sanctuary,” a house-sized suite featuring a wet bar, spa and sauna, sitting area, oceanview terrace, and a two-story walk-in wardrobe.
