You couldn't ask for a more idyllic vacation retreat than this Craftsman style home, whose perch in an exclusive residential area of Carmel Highlands affords panoramic ocean views guaranteed to leave you in a perpetual state of tranquility. A beautiful private beach is a short distance away.
The location is ideal. The quaint village of Carmel is just a few miles away; Pacific Grove and Monterey are each a 10-minute drive, and Big Sur about a 40 minute drive.
The multi-level 3 bedroom, 2½ bath split level house sits on a hillside. Stairs from the driveway lead to a patio with a teak table and chairs for 2. Double doors open to an inviting foyer that leads to a great room. A wall of picture windows reveals panoramic ocean views.
Upon your arrival you will be greeted with complimentary hors d'oeuvres and wine or sparkling cider, passes to the renown Spa on the Plaza in downtown Monterey, tickets for a wine tasting at Scheid Vineyards’ tasting room in downtown Carmel-by-the-Sea and a basket of local information. An assigned concierge vacation house manager is available to assist you during your stay. We have also provided spa amenities in the bathrooms, plush spa bathrobes, slippers, over-sized towels and beach gear.
The great room combines living, dining and kitchen areas so that all communal activities can take full advantage of the gorgeous vistas. Typical Craftsman touches blend with a seashore theme throughout the house. Relax on the leather sectional and enjoy a crackling fire in the wood-burning stone-faced fireplace or watch movies on a flat-screen TV. Daydream as you gaze out the window from built-in bench seating that extends the length of the living room. This floor also includes a half bath.
Preparing meals will be a joy in the well-designed chef's dream kitchen. Its chief features: handsome oak cabinets, sand-colored counter and backsplash tile, top quality stainless steel appliances including a side-by-side refrigerator, an induction stove top, oven, dishwasher and microwave. Between the living room and kitchen is a long rectangular island with double sinks; upholstered stools provide counter seating. A Craftsman table and upholstered chairs seat up to 8 in the adjacent dining area.
A short flight of stairs leads to a cozy wood-paneled family room that will make you feel like you're on top of the world. Curl up with a book or engage in conversations with loved ones while enjoying ocean views from the plush couch or leather easy chair. A wet bar and a built-in display case filled with glassware make this the perfect place to enjoy cocktails as the sun sets. Open the sliding glass doors and enjoy an al-fresco meal on a deck equipped with a grill and teak table and chairs for 4.
The bedrooms are located on 2 levels beneath the great room. The master, with treetop, mountain and ocean views and its own deck, features a king Craftsman bed with luxury linens, an upholstered easy chair and a free-standing wood-burning stove for cozy fires on cool nights. The master bath with its custom oak cabinetry and off-white tiles features a star's dressing room vanity, a sunken black Jacuzzi tub, a sauna and a walk-in closet.
A few steps down is a 2nd bedroom with a king bed (which can convert to 2 twins), a Craftsman dresser and end table, and a cocoa-brown velvet easy chair. A 3rd bedroom has a queen bed. All beds have luxury linens and all 3 bedrooms have deck access and ocean views.
A 2nd full bath, with a long wraparound counter and brown tile, has a shower.
A large laundry room on this lower level has a washer and dryer.
The garage contains billiard table and allows parking for 1 car; 2 additional cars can be parked in the driveway.
