Description(Reference number: 77743)
This snug family home is right in the heart of Carmel-by-the-Sea, giving quick and easy access to the boutique shops and restaurants of the historic centre. But if you fell asleep on the journey and woke up in the tree-lined neighbourhood in front of this house, you could be forgiven for thinking you were in rural Tuscany. Even in a town famed for its unique buildings, this one stands out just that little bit more, with its 250-year old terracotta roof tiles and bougainvillaea-adorned gardens. Inside, Venetian plaster walls provide a backdrop to accents of fine Carmel stonework, while dramatic beams, vaulted ceilings and copper hardware create a sense of grandeur. We particularly love the warm and cosy living room, where hand-hewn chestnut flooring comes together with a traditional stone fireplace and large windows that frame the botanical view beyond. Accentuate the Italianate theme with bustling family dinners around the dining table or sharing bottles of wine on the balcony with ocean views over the treetops. And if you feel like exploring, the quietly luxurious Pebble Beach and beautiful Spanish Bay are both just ten minutes away by car – there'll be a secluded outdoor shower waiting for you on your return.
