William Hearst was one lucky man to own a piece of property such as this ~ and in one of my favorite locations of all time, Big Sur. I can only imagine what the life would be like to be one of his guests visiting for the weekend, taking in those refreshing coastal views, enjoying top of the line meals, and mingling with the celebrities & socialites of that time. While visiting, I found Gatsby to be a great comparison, since it seems as though Hearst really only built the castle to entertain guests. For those who haven't seen the castle in person, I do recommend a visit. The detail in the castle's architecture is astounding and breathtaking. If I only I could swim in that indoor (or outdoor) pool... ^_* one day.
