Property Description



These aspects of life best describes 36584 Highway 1 Big Sur

This architectural masterpiece “The Dome House” is perched on the cliffs of Big Sur on the water side of Highway 1 on nearly 2.1 acres. Located close to the famous Bixby Bridge in Monterey. 200 degree views along the coast with access down to the ocean and beach.

Our client acquired the property nearly 20 years ago with a dream of building a most spectacular architectural masterpiece on the Northern California shoreline, “ The Dome House”. After a decade of obtaining plans and approvals, construction commenced. The nearly 60 pylons, foundation and platforms were engineered and built. The form work is ready for the concrete to be poured, the interior partially completed and awaits a buyer to finish with their own vision. Our client’s dream did not turn into reality as her passing occurred recently. Now the opportunity is yours to purchase this historic and never duplicated estate. Complete the construction and live in the most beautiful coastal area in the United States.
The permitted home is 3200SF with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Since the approval of the plans occurred years ago, building requirements have changed, as such, you cannot build a home in this location ever again. The building code no longer allows a structure to be constructed only 8 feet from the bluff. The revised building code requires the setback to be 50 feet from the bluff.

As you can imagine, the views are unmatched and not achievable again.

The land value was assessed at nearly $6.5 million without improvements.
