[A quick note about Big Sur: Big Sur isn't really a city or a town, it is more of a sparsely populated area that runs along the California central coast, south of San Francisco. Most of the homes there have sprawling secluded properties, great views of the Pacific Ocean, and are très expensive.]

This particular home is listed for $2,995,000.

According to the Trulia.com website, the estimated monthly payment at that sales price (with 20% down) would be $13,409 a month!

This one-of-a-kind property on the Big Sur Coast in California is currently for sale for $3,995,000.

The million dollar views of the Pacific Ocean are sublime… but the sellers decided to throw in a really cool house as well.

Known as the “Dragon House“, this architectural wonder has been for sale since 2010.
