Tour James Cameron’s cinematic 102-acre oceanfront property in Santa Barbara County, California.
When famed Titanic director James Cameron isn’t weighing in on the OceanGate Titan submarine tragedy, he’s presumably packing up his belongings at his 102-acre oceanfront estate, “Tranquility Base,” in the incredible gated community of Hollister Ranch in Santa Barbara County, California.
As the Cameron family exits stage right, this is the chance for you and your brood to make a big entrance.
All you need is $33 million, and, to paraphrase Celine Dion, once more, you’ll open the door (or gate rather), and be here in the heart of a super-private, incredibly secure compound that boasts a swimming pool, tennis court, guest house, two barns, pastures, horse stalls, trails, gardens, and your very own private well.
But the grounds aren’t the only thing worthy of lights, camera, and action here. Built in 1990, the six-bedroom, five-bathroom (plus two half-baths) house features gorgeous stone flooring, wood beams, grand fireplaces, and stunning views.
Your parties will be the talk of the neighborhood thanks to the expansive living room, elevated dining area, and gather-a-crowd kitchen that’s just right mix of charm and practicality.
In a less-social mood?
You can work on your fitness in the surprisingly large workout room, or simply make your way through the Cameron film canon with back-to-back binges of all of the Avatar movies, Aliens, Terminator 1 & 2, The Abyss, and Titanic in the well-appointed media room.
No matter how you spend the day, as the owner of this estate, you’ll feel like you’re king of the world.
