A large chunk of oceanfront property on the Northern California coast will go to the highest bidder during a no-reserve auction scheduled for May 7.

It’s the first time the 66 acres — believed to be the largest oceanfront property available in Northern California — with sweeping coastal views and a hiking trail down to a private beach have been offered for sale, according to listings touting its availability.

Located along the remote Lost Coast of California about four hours north of San Francisco in Shelter Cove, the property fronts 3,000 feet of the Pacific Ocean atop protected land that features indigenous trees, a spring-fed brook, and a private trail to the ocean for swimming, fishing or viewing sea lions, rare marine birds and California gray whales during the winter and spring migration seasons.

It is surrounded on three sides by the 68,000 unspoiled acres of the King Range National Conservation Area, where King Peak ascends 4,088 feet above sea level and nearly 300 species of native and migratory birds gather. Its wild landscape and rugged Lost Coast Trail features massive redwood groves, hidden beaches, pristine ecosystems, and other wildlife including elephant seals, river otters, bobcats and deer.

Roosevelt Elk roam at nearby Chemise Mountain and every hole of Shelter Cove’s nine-hole golf course overlooks the Pacific Ocean.

Accessible by only a few back roads, the building site at the end of Bay Circle can be ready for construction in six months, according to listings, but sits within walking distance of the nearby Shelter Cove airport at Point Delgada.

The property has been listed for nearly $3.5 million. It is unclear what it is expected to fetch at auction.

The auction is being managed by Elite Auctions and will begin at 10 am Pacific time on May 7, and online bidding will be available. Viewings of the property are by appointment only.
