William Randolph Hearst hired architect, Julia Morgan, to design his dream home in San Simeon, California.
From the Hearst Castle Homepage

"By 1947, Hearst and Morgan had created an estate of 165 rooms and 127 acres of gardens, terraces, pools and walkways.

The estate’s magnificent main house, “Casa Grande,” and three guest houses are of Mediterranean Revival style, while the imposing towers of Casa Grande were inspired by a Spanish cathedral. The blending of the architectural style with the surrounding land, and Hearst’s superb European and Mediterranean art collection, was so seamless that world-renowned architectural historian, Lord John Julius Norwich, was moved to say that “Hearst Castle is a palace in every sense of the word.”

I have been to this "castle" three times and still have not seen the full extent it has to offer. I highly recommend the pool tour, it's my favorite. But if the central coast of California is too far for you to visit, you can see the virtual tour HERE
