Carmel By the Sea house description

An easy four to five block walk to restaurants and shopping in downtown Carmel, and an equal distance the beach, in a forested and uniquely private setting (for Carmel), this house is a beautifully furnished and livable home, with vacant lots on either side, and scrupulously clean. Recently remodeled, the property has a view of the ocean across Del Monte Forest in Pebble Beach, with incredible sunset views from the stone terrace and master BR. The kitchen is supplied for the gourmet cook, and the living room, with one wall of windows, has a huge and well-functioning freestanding fireplace with plenty of seasoned firewood nearby. Museum-quality modern art, ceramics, and books populate the unwindowed wall. The house is designed to be in contact with the outdoors, and is home to numerous bird species. The surroundings are a walker's dream.
At sunset, after the last golfers of the day have made the turn at the 10th hole on Pebble Beach, enjoy the world's most exclusive and beautiful walk: downhill four blocks on a street closed to cars; through the Carmel gate entrance to Pebble Beach; onto Pebble Beach golf course only 100 yards along the 17 mile drive; and then continue to the Beach and Tennis Club or The Lodge at Pebble Beach.
The master suite, with a view of Del Monte Forest and the ocean, has a huge walk-in closet, shower and separate tub; and a king-size bed. The second and third bedrooms are on the opposite (back) side of the house for privacy, with a full bath between them. The third bedroom doubles as an office, with computer, printer, and TV, and private entry off the side-yard.
