Product Overview

Hearst Castle in San Simeon, California, was more than just a country house, and many of its finest features were outside, not inside. In Hearst''s San Simeon: The Gardens and the Land, Hearst Castles official historian Victoria Kastner takes readers on a time-traveling tour of the estate, from the beginning of its construction to the present. Featuring two spectacular swimming pools, 120 acres of luxuriant gardens, and 450 square miles of pristine coastal landscape, its no wonder that the estate was named La Cuesta Encantada (The Enchanted Hill). From the 1920s through the 1940s, publisher William Randolph Hearst and actress Marion Davies hosted the countrys elite here, encouraging them to enjoy the outdoors at the ranch created by architect and landscape architect Julia Morgan. With stunning photographs, original drawings, and lively anecdotes, Hearst''s San Simeon: The Gardens and the Land tells the story of one of Californias most beautiful and unspoiled treasures.
