The Skinny: Occupying "the heart of Bixby Creek watershed, which ancient redwoods have called home for millennia," this expansive, 160-acre private forest is the ultimate in off-the-grid getaways. Currently occupied only by a rustic cabin, the acreage was once graced with a massive redwood house, presumably destroyed by fire, as only the grand stone hearth remains. Five minutes from the beach at Bixby Bridge and 20 minutes from downtown Carmel, this highly desirable property is asking just $1.75M, a price that reflects the time, money, and effort that would be necessary to build a new home on this remote plot, but certainly not the views, which look to be worth many, many millions.
