Property description

My 'Treehouse' apartment sits atop a redwood building on my one acre property in Carmel Valley above the Carmel Valley 'Village' and the Carmel River. It is nestled among over 20 lovely, old oak trees with lots of light, sun and views– beyond the fog belt of the coast yet under 20 minutes from Carmel.

A wide staircase winds up to the deck with table and seating (smoking allowed outside, only) and the double doors to the apartment. The all redwood building has a peaked, open beam, tongue and groove ceiling with cathedral-shaped stained glass windows on each end and Pella, screened windows throughout.

Plush carpet reigns with oak parquet in the full kitchen and tile in the full bath (shower)– the effect is light and lovely! Extremely well insulated, the 'Treehouse' has a gas wall heater; in summer the ocean breezes come in early afternoon to cool and the days are FOG FREE.

Parking is off street and covered behind full fencing and an electric gate. Covered parking for a second car by request.

Keywords: Treehouse, studio, private, detached house, covered parking, valley views, artist residence.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: I'm a full time artist and have the best art studio, here, for creating and selling my ShellShades across the United States. But I also love to garden and especially love to water– a disappointing pleasure in CA :-( Nonetheless, this home and property have allowed me to work, play and create the perfect refuge. I think you'll enjoy it, too. Desiree

Why the Owner Chose Carmel Valley:
I love the outdoors and wildlife. Between here and the 3 minutes to the 'Village' watch out for deer and turkeys on the road. At the 'Treehouse' we also have turkeys and quail, gray fox, raccoons, squirrels, opossum and birdsong. At night you can hear the river running in the canyon below and the little birds singing in the morning. Night skies are exceptionally starry and we are fortunate with our clean air to view the Milky Way most nights.

The Unique Benefits at this Studio:
–MONTEREY BAY AQUARIUM passes are included with your stay. Good for two people with a 49.00 value. Go over and over again instead of trying to see it all in one day! –WINE TASTING is big here because we have such an excellent wine growing appelation– ask me about Tasting Rooms. –WILD TURKEYS and deer heavily populate the area and are wonderful to observe. –FIND A MYSTERY book in the collection and read it while you're here.
