Located next to the Bixby Bridge near Big Sur, which has over 100,000 Instagram posts and can be seen in the opening credits of the HBO series Big Little Lies, sits the “the Bixby House,” designed by Gregory Ain and perched cliffside overlooking the Pacific. It’s on the market for a staggering $16 million.

Featuring five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the circa-1960 home measures 5,200 square feet. It comes with exposed beams, wood carvings, and a stone sculpture by Gordon Newell in the garden. There’s also a guesthouse built in the 1800s that made the trek through the Panama Canal.

Any solitude-happy homebuyers should note that the PCH home is an ideal place for anyone who wants to get away from it all—literally.

“Once you pull off the highway, you’re on the property. You have absolutely no neighbors,” listing agent Steve Beutel tells Realtor. “It’s almost like an island.”

Originally designed and built for Ralph B. Atkinson, a film producer and technician, the house was later owned by Candid Camera creator and host Allen Funt in the 1970s, who was responsible for the stained-glass window and mosaic bathroom addition. Following Funt’s death, the property was later sold to developers.

The listing is through Noel and Steve Beutel of Sotheby’s International Realty.
