Nitt Witt Ridge is a house on two and a half acres in Cambria, California, United States. Artist/recluse Arthur "Art" Harold Beal (1896-1992) bought his hillside lot in 1928 and spent most of the next 50 years carving out the terraces with only a pick and shovel, creating his own "castle on a hill".

  • A step into another world so different from the mansion up the road. The tours are given by the now owner Michael who is very interesting himself.  more »
  • It was interesting and easy to get to. I liked the sign on the fence with the explanation. We were surprised to find it right in a neighborhood with other homes.  more »

  • This is an an absolutely brilliant experience. Mike (owner and tour guide) brings the place to life with his fab tour. The whole family LOVED it (including 2 teenagers), so much so we are considering going again!!
  • Interesting to see. The history is on a pamphlet in front of the house. Wish we could have been able to take the tour, just didn't plan well. There is a turn out to park but the road is very narrow. Be careful
