A Trip to Hearst Castle

Over my weekend we finally celebrated my love’s birthday by going up the coastline and making a trip to Mr. William Randolph Hearst former residence. He liked to call this little place “the ranch”. It is now known as one of America’s grandest country estate. Its been a working family cattle ranch since 1865 and to fulfill his dream home, Hearst hired California architect Julia Morgan. She helped to design the Mediterranean revival style estate and it took over 28 years from 1919 to 1947. Now known as La Cuesta Encantada or the Enchanted Hill. Hearst Castle can be found in San Simeon, California
