Magnificent Venetian estate on 80 acres of California coastal paradise. Unblockable 180-degree coastline views with a half mile frontage across from pristine beach. Steps to uncrowded sandy beaches. Views south to Moonstone Beach and north to Piedras Blancas Lighthouse and Hearst Castle. Estate is located in Cambria—an artist colony and travel destination with fine dining, galleries and boutiques.

Lavish, museum-quality ambiance in ocean-view Main Residence supports a regal lifestyle and provides an incomparable setting for entertaining on a grand or intimate scale.

Served by the stylish 30 ft-long Onyx Bar, the Grand Ballroom is the heart of the main residence— a glittering expanse of marble, crystal, and fine mural artwork. In the nurturing privacy of the East Wing, the romantic Master Suite will take your breath away. This serene retreat features a sitting area, fireplace, dressing area, whirlpool tub, traditional sauna room, steam shower with 12 showerheads and drench, two story walk-in wardrobe with wet bar, and a wall of French doors to the ocean-view terrace.

Additional guest suites are equally exquisite, graced with mural domes, marble baths (one with steam), generous wardrobes and expansive ocean or vineyard views.

The West Wing includes the impressive Theatre Room, the stately Executive Office Suite, Butler’s quarters, Morning Room, and a formal Family Room with fireplace, dining alcove, and southern-facing ocean-view terrace. The splendid Wine Cellar features a tasting room, case storage, built-in 3500-bottle rack system, and delightful trompe l’oeil painted ceiling.

Kitchen facilities include a professional-quality dream kitchen with Viking Professional appliances—two full-size refrigerators, wine cooler, dishwasher, 6 burner gas range with griddle and two ovens, 2 convection wall ovens, 2 warming drawers, trash compactor, immense marble-topped prep island with deep sink and 50 in. flat-screen television. An additional complete catering kitchen with butler’s pantry is adjacent to the Morning Room.

On the ocean-view Vineyard Terrace, the outdoor kitchen is the perfect gathering place, equipped with a wood-fired stone pizza oven, undercounter refrigeration, wine coolers, warming drawers, gas burners, resort-sized grill, beer tapper and gas fireplace.

Touch-screens in all rooms control lighting, sound and security systems, allowing complete environmental control and visual monitoring of the residence from anywhere in the world. Flat–screen televisions throughout.

Across the vineyard motor courtyard, the 4500 sq ft Entertainment Hall stands ready for gatherings of up to 400. A full bar, Murano chandeliers, sound system, grand piano and wrap-around Italian vineyard murals make an unforgettable backdrop for formal dinners and dances.

A multi-use 9000 sq ft Pavilion can accommodate even larger events. This imposing space features soaring ceilings with massive beams and custom medallions, a penthouse apartment, ocean and estate-view observation lounge, musician's balcony, backstage prep room and modular stage. Excellent for large fundraisers or large-scale private gatherings. The Pavilion was also configured to house up to a 30-car automotive collection, with full supporting equipage.

Additional structures include a reception lounge/administration office, 4-bedroom guest house, estate manager’s residence, and full equestrian facilities. Total compound square footage is 33,500 +/- sq ft. Total living area is 20,000 +/- sq ft.

Ideally located in a pristine coastal area of natural beauty halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Excellent access fronting legendary Pacific Coast Highway at its most scenic. Two regional airports with commercial jet service within 25 minutes and the estate’s helipad and helicopter storage facilities welcome your guest’s arrivals by air.

Castello della Costa d’Oro
enjoys a castle seat of surpassing beauty. Monterey cypress trees frame whitewater views and forever sunsets. The lush landscaping around the residence and along the quarter-mile-long driveway is accented by bronze fire urns and mature 30 ft tall Canary Island palms. The estate’s 80 acres are in Pinot Noir grapes, olives, fenced pasture, riparian corridor and rare Monterey pine forest—one of only three such stands in the world. A National Marine Sanctuary offshore protects abundant sea life and important ocean habitat.

California Polytechnic State University is in nearby San Luis Obispo. It is consistently rated among the top universities in the country and its graduates are highly sought after.

Just inland is the exciting Paso Robles wine country. As California’s fastest growing wine region, the territory encompasses more than 26,000 vineyard acres and more than 180 premium and ultra-premium wineries. Day-tripping and fine dining opportunities in the near vicinity of the estate are varied and abundant. Deep-water fishing, surfing, exploring beach towns, wine tasting, kayaking, wind-surfing, hiking, upscale shopping—the recreation opportunities of this unspoiled part of California are unlimited.

Yacht mooring and guest dock are available at the Morro Bay Yacht Club in scenic Morro Bay harbor,just 15 minutes south.

Castello della Costa d’Oro is indeed a worthy compatriot to its neighbor to the north,William R. Hearst's castle on a hill.
